The popular MMORPG Star Trek Online has introduced the The Mirror Escort Carrier, the first Mirror Universe starship from Discovery.

While not nearly as popular as other MMORPGs, Star Trek Online still has a devoted following of players who have watched the game grow over the years. No it will never be confused with World of Warcraft, but for a fan looking to immerse themselves in the world of Star Trek, you can’t get much better. Especially with many previous Trek actors returning to reprise their roles in the game.

The free-to-play game offers a distinct Trek experience as the story picks up 30 years after the events in Star Trek: Nemesis and has taken the franchise is a very different direction. Characters and situations you thought you knew like the back of your hand have changed dramatically.

The most recent season of the game was titled Age of Discovery and brought players into the setting of Star Trek: Discovery. Released this past fall, the new season was the first time the game was creating content at the same time a new Trek television show was being released. It is the first part of a trio of expansions for the game that will bring the world and situations of Discovery to players everywhere.

Part of the game are the Infinity Lock Boxes, which in the past have given players some incredible loot if they are lucky enough to come across one. And as of Saturday, that loot could include a starship.

As revealed on Star Trek.com, the latest Infinity Loot Box includes a chance to get The Mirror Escort Carrier, a twisted Mirror Universe version of the Engle class starship as seen in the first season of Discovery. The ship is scaleable, which means that it will improve and grow as you level up in the game.

Scaling ships is a relatively new concept to Star Trek Online but something they hope will be well received by players. Then, future Loot Boxes could include even more starships for players to use and explore the galaxy.
