As we have already covered, Star Trek Online was scheduled to make its way into the free-to-play online gaming scene and today is that day. Right now, players can join up with the Federation or the Klingons in the now free-to-play MMORPG.
Although some of the players may have gotten into the free-to-play Star Trek Online earlier than others, there are no longer any restrictions on who can join and who can’t. That means there is nothing holding you back from becoming a captain in the Star Fleet.
