ShackStream: Star Trek Online Ascension Sweepstakes with the developers

Tune in as STO Community Leader Mike Fatum joins us to celebrate the Ascension update coming to consoles with a giveaway!

It’s a big month for Star Trek Online. The Ascension update has finally arrived on PlayStation and Xbox consoles and allows them to take part in a new story with Wil Wheaton. The update was already available on PC, but now console players can enjoy everything it has to offer, and to celebrate, we’re streaming Star Trek Online and doing a giveaway with community leader Mike Fatum.

The Star Trek Online Ascension update arrived on PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S on November 1, 2022. It features a new story in which Wil Wheaton reprises his role as evil Mirror version of his character, Wesley Crusher. Emperor Crusher has amassed immense traveling powers and forged an alliance with the Mirror version of V’ger, making him one of the most dangerous threats the galaxy has ever faced. New missions and events await as you join forces to bring down the Mirror Crusher.

Join us as we go live on the Shacknews Twitch channel with Star Trek Ascension at 11am PT / 2pm ET. You can also watch below.

You’ll want to stay tuned for this live stream if you’re a fan of Star Trek Online. We have some special prize packs to give away. You could grab one of several keys for a Terran Empire Odyssey clothing pack on PC, PlayStation, or Xbox. Includes the following:

  • Terran Empire Odyssey Outfit
  • 1 package of elite services
  • 1 small XP boost

There are also instructions on how to redeem any code on the Arc Games website.

As always, we’d also like to thank viewers for tuning in. Your support means a lot to us. Don’t forget you can further support ShackStreams by following and subscribing to the Shacknews Twitch channel. You can even do it for free if you have an Amazon Prime account and link it to your Twitch account using Prime Gaming. This gives you a free Twitch subscription every month to use as you wish.
