sto season6 screen5 Star Trek Online Season 6 now available

Several MMO titles have gone the free-to-play route after launching under a subscription model.  It certainly has extended the life of Lord of the Rings Online and City of Heroes.  Now Season 6 has come out for Star Trek Online, the first since it was taken over by Perfect World and gone to the free-to-play model.

Perfect World Entertainment Inc. today announced the release of Star Trek Online Season 6: Under Siege. This latest major update to Star Trek Online introduces the Fleet (Guild) Advancement System, which allows Fleet members to construct, level-up and defend their own Starbase. Alongside new Fleet events and additional end-game content for max level players, with Season 6: Under Siege, the free-to-play MMO sees its first major Foundry update since launch.

Creating your own Starbase sounds very cool.  I haven’t gotten into any MMOs yet, but this one might be worth checking out now.  Be sure to check out the video and screenshots below to see what the new update is about.
