Cryptic Studios has released a chart displaying the Star Trek universe timeline, clarifying when Star Trek Online will be based, and in which reality.
The recent Star Trek film saw Nero and Spock travel back in time and create an alternate timeline, setting up a new universe for the Star Trek franchise. Cryptic has confirmed that STO will take place in the original timeline.
“Star Trek Online is set in the “prime” Star Trek reality. This is the timeline of the five television series and the first 10 movies. It is the world in which the Gorn attacked Cestus III, Kirk fought Khan in the Mutara Nebula, Picard explored the galaxy, the Federation fought the Dominion War, Voyager was stranded in the Delta Quadrant and Captain Archer and the crew of the NX-01 showed us how it all began.”
The chart, seen below, shows exactly when STO will be based; around 30 years after ‘Voyager’. Find out more at the official Star Trek Online.
