When we tend to (very fondly) remember Deep Space Nine, we champion its boldness: Serialised storytelling, a darker look at a utopia in crisis, the daunting dramas of the Dominion War. But it wasn't always a bleak examination of Trek in wartime - and the latest expansion for Cryptic's free-to-play Star Trek Online, Victory is Life, remembers that well.

Today marks the launch of Victory is Life, the latest expansion for Cryptic's free-to-play MMORPG Star Trek Online. Themed around the locales and story of the Deep Space Nine television series, the expansion follows up with familiar faces from the beloved TV in the decades after the end of the Dominion War -- and the actors who played them, too. René Auberjonois, who played DS9's chief of security Constable Odo throughout the entirety of Deep Space Nine's TV run, is one of the latest.
Star Trek: Discovery is set 10 years before the events of the original Star Trek, but that wasn't always going to be the case. It was almost an anthology show that was going to take fans from the pre-Kirk Federation into Star Trek's future. If you're disappointed Discovery is solely stuck in the past instead, you really should play Star Trek Online.
