The very first chapter of Shacknews E6 kicks off on the Shacknews Twitch channel at 9 a.m. PT / 12 p.m. ET. You can also check out the embedded video just below to catch the action when it goes live and after the stream ends.

On today’s stream of Star Trek Online, we’ll be wandering into the great unknown and engaging in the quests and politics of the game alongside developers from Cryptic Studios. You’ll want to be on deck if you’re an avid player of the game as well. Star Trek Online is free to play, but we’re going to be giving away keys to unlock and obtain the premium Cross Faction Strike Wing Escort bundle on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox platforms. Get one of these keys and you’ll gain access to the Earhart Strike Wing Escort [T6] and the Sech Strike Wing Escort [T6].

We’ll also just be chatting with the devs and asking our burning questions as we play the game. If there’s anything you want to know about what’s going on in Star Trek Online or what comes next, you’d do well to be in our stream and ask your question! We’ll be happy to share it with Cryptic Studios during the stream.

With this Star Trek Online livestream and key giveaway, Shacknews E6 has finally begun. Check out our livestream schedule for a full rundown of events happening throughout the week. We’ll have plenty of content and exclusives to show throughout the rest of the week.

      Star Trek Online is one of those MMOs where I'm always surprised to hear it's still around.

      I mean that's cool, I'm glad they're apparently at least successful enough to keep going, but you almost never hear anyone talk about it.

      Another one I'm always surprised about is WW2 Online. Although according to their website they have several "exciting volunteer opportunities" including server admin and C++ programmer so I don't know what's going on there
