Cryptic Studios, developers of 2010’s Star Trek Online, have released the first developer’s blog for the upcoming batch of Season Eight content, which will include the return of the Dyson Sphere. The blog entry is nothing more than the Captain’s log of the fictional U.S.S. Callisto, a ship which The Next Generation‘s Reginald Barclay serves on, and its encounter with a Dyson Sphere.
The log makes mention of the possibility of a Dyson Sphere and quotes Barclay, who is the closest thing to an expert on Dyson Spheres on-board the Callisto due to his experience with one when he served aboard the Enterprise-D (a reference to Star Trek: The Next Generation‘s sixth season episode, “Relics“).
Star Trek Online: Season Eight is currently being developed by Cryptic Studios and will be the largest infusion of new content since the release of Legacy of Romulus earlier this year.
