The Undine to be Revamped in Star Trek Online’s Season 8.5

First introduced as Species 8472 in Star Trek: Voyager‘s third season, they have come to be known as the Undine in Star Trek Online. In the earlier seasons, they functioned as a nuisance and eventually as one of the game’s primary enemies. Cryptic has revealed that they will be receiving a revamp in the upcoming Season 8.5, as the developers feel they, “were not on par with the Borg in terms of their toughness and challenge rating – so we’ve decided to go back and make them a little bit smarter, a little bit faster, and a little bit tougher.”

Cryptic has detailed numerous updates that will be implemented into all of the Undine’s ship types, to overall boost, “AI, refreshed powers, and retuned damage.” The revamp is being implemented for a currently unannounced update in addition to Season 8.5.

Star Trek Online‘s Season 8.5 is slated for release on January 30th, 2014.

      Undine makes it sound like they’re always hungry.

        Heh. I didn’t get what you were saying then I realized that you pronounce the name as UN DINE. This was the first time I read the name so I thought it was OON DEEN. lol Yeah, UN DINE does sound like they are always hungry.

        “…at first” being the key here. They really didn’t know where to go with Species 8472 after their appearance. Sad. There was potential for them to become as big a threat as The Borg. Missed opportunity. :/
