In Rise of Discovery players will need to answer a distress call from a Federation Starship which has sustained massive damage after falling victim to a Klingon assault. This attack leaves only one person alive: Captain Gabriel Lorca. Lorca is stranded on a “desolate ice moon” which is overrun by Klingon patrols searching tirelessly for survivors. As such, Lorca is left deep behind enemy lines and is in desperate need of assistance. This is where you, the player, come in. For fans of the show, this could prove to be an interesting premise as it builds upon the already established characters’ history, allowing players to aid one of the shows most important protagonists.
