After a very successful 2014, with more characters like Tuvok, Seven of Nine, Neelix and Harry Kim (all voiced by the original actors) a story line involving the Undine and massive system updates to the game, Star Trek Online appears to be going from strength to strength.
With more updates due, adding more characters, traits and specializations for your own captain and bridge crew, and more stories carrying on from the Undine story arc, you know that these people are working hard on making this game better this year.
They give very little information about what is too come, but expect something with the first of the anniversary update.
