New Star Trek Online story quest features Tim Russ as Tuvok

Posted on January 31, 2014 AT 05:30pm

One of Star Trek‘s most underrated characters and actors has made his debut in Cryptic Studios’ Star Trek Online.

Publisher Perfect World has announced that Tuvok, who was involved in one of the more amusing pon farr events in Trek history, is the featured attraction of “A Step Between Stars,” and his appearance features the voice work of Tim Russ, who played the studious Vulcan security and tactical officer on Star Trek: Voyager. As part of Star Trek Online‘s tale, however, Tuvok has ascended to the rank of admiral in a Kirk-style promotion.

Tuvok’s appearance is part of Star Trek Online‘s fourth-anniversary celebration and the game’s Season 8.5 update, which also features streamlined equipping and fast ship swapping, among other tweaks. The quest is unlocked for all players right now, but after Feb. 27th, “A Step Between Stars” will only be available to maximum-rank players.
