“Star Trek: Voyager” is back, in a way. The latest expansion for “Star Trek Online” features several of the characters, voiced by the actors who played them in the fourth expansion of the classic television franchise.
Robert Picardo, Jeri Ryan, Garrett Wang, Ethan Phillips and Tim Russ return in character, with the story picking up 32 years after Voyager finished its journey home from the Delta Quadrant, as chronicled in the UPN series from 1995 to 2001.
Missing from the reunion are Kate Mulgrew, as Star Trek’s first female captain, Robert Beltran, Robert Duncan McNeill, Roxann Dawson and Jennifer Lien.
The “Star Trek Online: Delta Rising” expansion launched Wednesday, and sends players back to the Delta Quadrant to face a new threat. Along the way, they will get to work alongside Starfleet legends like Tuvok (Russ), Seven of Nine (Ryan), Neelix (Phillips), Harry Kim (Wang) and The Doctor (Picardo), with the actors voicing their characters in-game.
The MMORPG is free to play and can be found at startrekonline.com.
