Amid the announcement of their mid-season update, Season 8.5, Cryptic has revealed that yet another Star Trek actor will be reprising their role for the first time in how many years, in Star Trek Online. The actor’s identity is still a secret, but Cryptic has articulated that their role will be in a new featured episode scheduled for release with the new season. Additionally, the actor’s identity will be revealed in a week, prior to the episode’s release.

Personally, I’m hoping it’s Brent Spiner (Data) or Andrew Robinson (Garak). The actor will be one of many Trek veterans to join STO, following in the footsteps of Denise Crosby (Tasha Yar), Michael Dorn (Worf), Zachary Quinto (Alternate Spock), and Leonard Nimoy (Spock).

Season 8.5 is scheduled for release on January 30th, 2014.
