Star Trek Online gets a free Star Trek Resurgence crossover skin
Two of the most prominent modern Star Trek game releases: persistent online RPG Star Trek Online and narrative-focused adventure Star Trek Resurgence are crossing over. To commemorate the physical console release of Resurgence on October 27, 2023, developer Cryptic Studios announced that all Star Trek Online players will be able to claim a free cosmetic starship skin that matches the features of Resurgence's "hero ship", the U.S.S. Resolute. The skin will be available for a limited time, with the promo running from October 12 to November 30, 2023.
The skin itself will be claimable from the Star Trek Online in-game store under the "Promotions" tab. Once claimed, players can proceed to the in-game ship customization officer. The skin is labeled as a "Centaur Refit", as Resurgence's U.S.S. Resolute is a modified version of the canonical "Centaur-class" starship first seen in the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine TV series. In comparison to the "standard" Centaur-class, the Resolute features a more exposed shuttle bay and bridge on the dorsal surface of the saucer, as well as a larger secondary hull and deflector dish.
The Resurgence Centaur Refit skin will be available on all playable Starfleet "Light Cruiser" variant starships. This family of starships includes the free tutorial starship players can obtain, which by default is based on Star Trek's Miranda-class or Star Trek Discovery's Malachowski-class. Several endgame-level ships can also use the skin.
Additionally, players who pre-order the physical edition of Star Trek Resurgence via participating retailers will receive a Star Trek Online Federation Elite Starter Pack, a bundle of items designed to give new players a leg up in the early game. The Starter Pack includes a playable Advanced Light Cruiser starship (which can use the new skin), as well as a Liberated Borg bridge officer, and a Starfleet Academy uniform.
Star Trek Online is available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One and is free-to-play. Star Trek Resurgence is available digitally on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S, and will launch physically for consoles on October 27. The free Resurgence skin in Star Trek Online will be available until November 30, 2023.
