Star Trek Online: Talaxian Playable Species Announced

SBFordSBFord Former Associate EditorMember LegendaryPosts: 33,129

The Star Trek Online site has been updated with the news that the Talaxian species will now be available the game's lifetime subscribers. Players of both Federation and Klingon factions will be able to create Talaxians that also come with a unique species trait. Perfect World is enticing players to buy a lifetime subscription by dropping the price $100 to $199.99.

Natives of the planet Talax in the Delta Quadrant, Talaxians are a jovial, friendly humanoid species who enjoy food and family and have a strong spiritual outlook on life. Talaxians have pale skin with areas of yellow to reddish spots on their heads, arms and bodies, and a plume of hair on the top of their heads. They are stocky and have dense musculature on their upper bodies and twin spinal columns. Most males have whiskers that develop in puberty.

In the mid-24th century, the Talaxians fought a violent and punishing war with the Haakonian Order, which ended after the Haakonians unleashed a metreon cascade on one of Talax's moons, killing more than 300,000 colonists and forcing the Talaxian government to surrender control of their world. As a result of the war, many Talaxians have left Talax. Some are wanderers and traders who range throughout the Delta Quadrant, but other Talaxians have gathered together in an attempt to settle a new world and found a new society.

    ...and for the Veteran rewards. (You should've heard the uproar when they added that into the lifer option, the "real" veterans who have paid the sub since years went nuts - and rightfully so, might I add)

    A few months ago there was a thread about STO where I posted subbing is dumb in STO, you should either play free with occasional Zen purchases, or if you want to spend regularily, buy the lifer instead.

    Lifer is a great deal for those who want to have the sub advantages, especially if it's on sale. 200 bucks is barely more than a year's sub fee, if you'll stay in the game longer, then it's already a better deal simply by the numbers. Beyond that you get the Veteran stuff: additional character slots, retrain tokens, a built-in xp boost, outfits, some really nice ships right away ("real" Veterans have to pay the monthly fee for years without a break to get those). And with the latest changes it also contains an extra ship upgrade. It's not bad at all.

    This is exactly what's happening. I didn't realize it at the time but they called the expansion Dilithium Rising on the test forums for a reason. smh.
