Guide to Klingon Empire Species in Star Trek Online

Bright Hub writes: "Upon reaching level 6, players of Star Trek Online unlock the ability to create a character in the Klingon faction. These warlike beings level up through a combination of PvE and PvP combat. Those who choose to walk the path of the warrior are not confined to the Klingon species, however, as they also have the option of choosing between several races who have aligned themselves with the empire.

Each of the five Klingon species has their own set of unique racial traits and bonuses, as well as the ability to choose several traits from a general pool, allowing for a high level of character customization. Players will also have the option of introducing an entirely new species to the empire, and choosing four traits from the pool powers to accompany it.

Check out all the species traits for the Klingon Empire."

Yeah, that's really what sucked me in, too. :)

It is at least loosely related, anyway. You can technically play as an Orion slave girl, at least according to the article...

Great article and great choice of picture.

I really wonder how this game is going to turn out.

moe845265d ago

The article is correct. You can play as the Orion if you decide to go with the Klingon side of things. However, there really isn't a "slave girl" class or w/e. You can write a back story for your character(s) if you wish.

Just re-read this article. Thanks.

Was never really a big Voyager fan I did watch it they reused a lot of the same story arcs time travel, slip stream, the borg, thrown closer to home. Best aliens I like that were introduced in the series were the Hirogen would love to see the Klingons take them on in a war.

The big issue was it was hard to have any consistency as you knew they were not going to mysteriously get home and Villains had to be infrequent as they were going through their space and would in time be out of range of their influence. There was a plan for the ship to get home via a new technology early in a mid season and then have them go to and from the Delta Quadrant and Federation as the story needed but that was nixed. I think not showing what happened when they actually set foot on Earth was a huge issue. I am hoping Picard addresses it.

Knightofelemia872d ago

There were plans to show a few episodes of what happened to the Voyager crew once they came back to the Alpha Quadrant but that fell through. Voyager was ok but it's not TNG or DS9 those two series I liked Enterprise with Scott Bakula was good I could never get into the Captain Kirk Star Trek that was before my time.

DS9 was great. I have not been able to get into Discovery. I do not like the characters or stories. I do not expect Xmas lights but the fact that it is 10 years before Kirk yet the ship is so much more advanced even before they went into time has not worked for me. Mainly dislike the characters. Prodigy lost me at the first episode but Lower Decks has grown on me and I have liked Picard.
