Star Trek Online Wiki

In Star Trek Online, the tutorials encompass the first few missions for each faction. With the help of several tooltip pop-ups, the player is slowly introduced to the game's UI and mechanics of ground and space combat.

The missions introduce the player to their faction's story and also provide the narrative for how they gain command of their first starship. These missions also award the first few bridge officers that players receive, notably [Elisa Flores], [K'Gan], [Tovan Khev], [Tarsi], and [Evelyn Savea].

They are non-repeatable but can be passed if the player has already played them on another character. If passed, the player will be taken through a different, accelerated arc of tutorial missions that takes much less time to complete, but is designed to bring the character to a similar level of development and aggregate rewards by the end of the arc.

Introductory missions[ | ]

Note, Dominion characters start at level 60 so do not have a tutorial as it is assumed they are familiar with the game's mechanics. They do however have a non-repeatable introductory arc: Engineered for War which cannot be passed, even if the player has already played the arc on another character.

Removed missions[ | ]

Upon launch, Starfleet had a tutorial arc called Tour of Duty that had the player begin aboard a starship under attack from the Borg. The arc focused entirely upon the Borg attack on Vega IX without the inclusion of the Klingons or Starfleet Academy. It also had a much larger role for the Khitomer Emergency Medical Hologram (voiced by Zachary Quinto). This was replaced in 2013.

At launch, the Klingon faction began at level 20 without a full tutorial as they were unlocked once the player had levelled up a Starfleet character. Instead, they had a simpler introductory arc called Tour First City. When the KDF was expanded to a full faction 2013, its role as a faux tutorial was removed. However, all but the initial 2 missions in the arc are still available as an introduction to Qo'noS.
