While the upcoming expansion for Star Trek Online, Legacy of Romulus, is free, Cryptic Studios is offering two starter-packs at a high cost that will grant players exclusive items at its launch. Two new items recently added to the pack include the Haakona Advanced Warbird and the Original Series Military Uniform set.
The Haakona-class is described as an, “upgraded version of the Ha’apax Advanced Warbird.” The design is based on stolen plans for the U.S.S. Prometheus, a prototypical tactical warship which the Romulans briefly commandeered in an episode of Star Trek: Voyager. The ship is thus a marriage of the classic, “D’deridex Warbird Battle Cruiser with advanced Federation technology.”
While hard specs of the ship have yet to be released, it was revealed that the ship will come equipped with a battle cloak; an item which allows it to fire on enemy ships before fully decloaking, as well as a universal Haakona Separation console console which will allow the ship to separate into two parts – the Assault Warbird and Guardian Warbird.
Legacy of Romulus will be released on May 21st, 2013.
