Back to School | STOked 91

We’re back! During our week off, Cryptic surprised us with a direct-to-Holodeck launch of Starfleet Academy, and we’ve got no choice but to geek out in some major ways about their take on this iconic environment. We also have in-game shots of the Enterprise-F, now called an Odyssey Class Cruiser, and you know the ship geeks have to make their final opinions heard.

Before we jump into a brand new Community Feedback, there’s also the July Engineering Report to review, and OH BROTHER it’s got some juicy teases about future content that’ve got our brain juices pumping. Tune in to hear our thoughts!
