The Foundry is a special program within Star Trek Online that allows users to make their own episodes, playable by other Captains within STO. To access it, open your Mission Journal, and select “Foundry,” at the top.
Every now and then, we like to spotlight a particularly interesting or unique mission for all of you to experience. This time, we’re spotlighting “Apex [AEI],” by Duncan Idaho.
Apex is the winner of a contest called the Alliance Exploration Initiative, held by fan podcast The Foundry Roundtable. The goal was to create a mission based around exploration, not just combat. In this story, you’ll explore a derelict spaceship filled with mysterious technology, and be led somewhere across the galaxy to a brand new world, all the while following the story of two Starfleet officers with a dramatic and romantic past.
I greatly enjoyed my time playing Apex, and I think you will, too. You can access it in the “Spotlight” section of the Foundry tab, in the Mission Journal. See you in game, Captains.
