We are thrilled to announce to you our first expansion coming to the Star Trek Fleet Command Universe. Brace yourselves!
New Faction - The Augment The Augments are a relic of a time long past, a testament to the violent history of humankind. Bred for warfare, they were designed to be stronger, faster and more intelligent than even the most remarkable humans. So great was their combined power, that they were able to overthrow Earth’s governments in a bloody conflict known today as the Eugenics Wars. Their rule was short-lived, however. Due to internal conflict as well as human rebellions, they were finally deposed when Khan Noonien Singh was routed from his seat in India. While their great kingdoms burned behind them, the last remaining Augments, led by the charismatic Khan, fled Earth on the Botany Bay. They were found, almost three centuries later, by a Starfleet admiral named Alexander Marcus who wished to exploit their savagery and combat prowess.
After Khan’s eventual defeat to the USS Enterprise, the Federation believed the Augments to be pacified. However, if there is one lesson to be learned from the Eugenics Wars, it is that the Augments cannot be tamed nor caged for long.
New territory in space will be added (as you may have already seen) with new systems. To visit this area of space you will have to go through a series of missions which will progress you through the Augment’s space.
Within Augment space you will find two new kinds of materials “Corrupted Data” and “Decoded Data”. These resources can be exchanged in the Augment Faction Store for various prizes.
New Ship - Botany Bay
The Botany Bay is a Survey ship that, even if it was the very best of its time, is a bit old now. Its combat prowess is mediocre at best, but it has been modified in order to receive Data from Accelerators faster than any other ship in the Galaxy.
The main goal of the Botany Bay is to mine Corrupted and Decoded Data Outposts in order to gain rewards from the Augment Faction Store.
The growth of the Botany Bay is slightly different than other ships. You will find out that some upgrades will significantly improve some of its old features like Warp Speed or Protected Cargo. The more you upgrade the ship, the faster you’ll be able to get to those Outposts and the faster you’ll be able to retrieve the data stored there.
The Botany Bay’s Ability is “Data Miner
”. This ability gives a significant boost to the mining bonus of the Botany Bay’s Mining Component when the ship is mining Corrupted and Decoded Data.
New Officers and Officer group: Khan’s
You will be able to Recruit Khan and his fellow Augments, with the addition of Marla McGivers.
The Khan’s Crew Synergy group contains the following 6 new officers: Khan Noonien Singh, Joachim, Marla MacGivers, Otto, Joaquin, and Kati. It is primarily focused on attacking and defeating Stations.
Because Augment officers are Genetically Engineered, they have better overall stats than normal officers. Marla MacGivers, being a normal human, does not have this advantage.
While all of the Augments show incredible levels of intelligence, none can match the engineering prowess of Joaquin. The others joke that he was born with a wrench in hand and his extensive knowledge of all things mechanical have served him well, even in this strange, new galaxy. Like many of his family, Joaquin is skeptical of this future they now live in. In his mind, new technology and amazing tools take away the initiative of a good engineer. Despite his doubts, he has thrown himself into his work, now that he is free to do so. He has taken a special interest in starships. After all, it is only thanks to the Botany Bay that any of them survived this long.

Kati is the only survivor of the Northern European Augments. As the rest of her region burned in nuclear flames, Kati fled to India with a promise of clemency from Khan. Since then, she has been his loyal friend and advisor. While all of the Augments are combat specialists, none of them hold a candle to Kati when it comes to handling weaponry. Blades, hammers, guns or slingshots. If it could kill, Kati knew how to use it. Unlike the rest of her family, Kati does not resent this new galaxy she has found herself in. She relishes the opportunity to experiment with new weapons technology and she will welcome the chance to use those weapons against Khan’s enemies.

Out of all of the augments, he has always been among the physically strongest. His tenacity, savagery, and ruthlessness are matched only by Khan himself. Like the rest of his Augment family, Otto was put into a cryogenic sleep when they fled the Earth in 1996. He was not awoken by Starfleet. Instead, he was used as emotional leverage against Khan, a fact that enrages Otto to this day. Now that he is free, Otto is eager to unleash 300 years of unspent aggression and bloodlust on an unsuspecting galaxy.
