LeVar Burton Joins the Star Trek Online Cast

Star Trek Online is attaining a growing cast of voice actors from the various series shows, so it shouldn’t be too surprising that the folks at Perfect World Entertainment have managed to snag LeVar Burton, voice of Geordi La Forge from Star Trek: The Next Generation. Burton joins the cast of actors voicing online versions of their television personas, in two special episodes coming to PC and console later this year. The first episode, coming in September, releases alongside the 30th anniversary of The Next Generation. The second episode will kick off Season 14 in October.

Players will join La Forge and his crew as they investigate a distress call from a Galaxy-class ship whose crew is being mind-controlled by a mysterious energy source. The episode marks the release of a fully realized Galaxy-class interior available for purchase and includes server-wide giveaways to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Players will be able to claim the highly requested skant uniform from Season One, as well as the Type 7 shuttle that was also featured in Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Skant designs from The Next Generation can be found here.
