Added DiffLines:

* SchrodingersCanon: The game is made of this, taking place after the "alternate" universe StarTrek2009 broke off from the "Prime" universe. Since the odds of new canon stories set in the Prime universe are vanishingly small, the devs take unmitigated glee in yanking anything from any point in Star Trek continuity and mashing it all together.

Added DiffLines:

* AntiRageQuitting: Multiplayer raids (called Special Task Forces, or "[=STFs=]" for short) feature a quitting penalty that bans people who leave early from queuing for another STF for two hours. This is not applied to private queues and switches off after fifteen minutes in the scenario, just in case people are quitting because the scenario has become genuinely unwinnable.

* FourStarBadass: The current maximum rank a player can achieve is Fleet Admiral (Federation & Romulan Republic, allowing them to become ''[[UpToEleven five]]''-star badasses) and General (KDF)[[note]]the final KDF promotion is Dahar Master, but that technically is a title rather than a rank[[/note]]. Rather quickly in universe, one would imagine.

to:

* ForgottenPhlebotinum: "House Pegh" has the eponymous Klingon [[InformedAttribute black-ops team]] in possession of a wide-area cloaking device capable of hiding ships in formation with the equipped vessel from Iconian sensors. [[SarcasmMode Surely this is a brilliant technological advance that will change the course of the war!]] Nope, never mentioned again, which amazingly is one of the ''lesser'' reasons the mission is considered an IdiotPlot.

Rather quickly in universe, one would imagine.Per ''Delta Rising'', there are ''eighteen months'' between the low-ranked game start and flag rank. The Romulan PC at least has the minor justification that the Romulan Republic is new and [[ClosestThingWeGot short on manpower]], but the Federation PC (in the post-season 8 tutorial) starts as a fourth-year cadet on his/her senior midshipman cruise and is given a battlefield commission as a lieutenant.

* HeWhoMustNotBeSeen: Aennik Okeg, the Federation President during the time of the game, is never once seen on-screen and is only mentioned in some of the backstory material (we get a glimpse of him in [[http://www.arcgames.com/en/games/star-trek-online/news/detail/9782073-star-trek-online%3A-in-the-purview-of-diplomats an in-universe blog]]). He seems content to leave off-world diplomatic matters to the player, Admiral Quinn, or the Federation Diplomatic Corps in general.

Finally broken with Season 11.5 and the "Temporal Front" storyline mission.

* ColorCodedItemTiers: The game uses white for common, green for uncommon, blue for rare, purple for very rare, light purple for ultra rare (reserved for Fleet gear or upgraded items), and gold for Epic (mostly upgraded items and a few special mission rewards).

For equipment, each tier adds an additional "mod" that grants a bonus like increased critical chance or a bonus to a character skill.

* BalkanizeMe: The {{Backstory}} of how the Romulan Star Empire breaks up and unites repeatedly, [[JustForFun/SurprisinglySimilarStories strikingly resembles]] what happened to [[Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse a certain other franchise's]] [[TheEmpire Empire]]. The first part is borrowed from the StarTrekNovelVerse post-''Nemesis'', where Senator Tal'aura and Commander Donatra had a falling out and Donatra led part of the military to form the Imperial Romulan State. In the game backstory, the RSE and IRS eventually merged back together ... just in time for Hobus to cut the heart out of the Empire and fragment it beyond belief. Nowadays a large chunk of what's left of the Empire is a military dictatorship under Empress Sela, with the [[StateSec Tal Shiar]] practically a state unto itself, while several breakaway colonies and the Reman Resistance have united under Proconsul D'Tan (Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration: "[[Recap/StarTrekTheNextGenerationS5E7Unification1 Unification]]" two-parter) to form the Romulan Republic (the player Romulan faction), with Federation and Klingon backing. By the endgame WordOfGod and implications in-game indicates the situation has more-or-less flipped, but is no less balkanized -- [[spoiler: Sela's Empire has been reduced to a few holdout colonies not even able to scrape up a fleet equivalent to that the Republic began with, the Tal Shiar ''is'' a state of their own but has suffered severe losses and desertion after Hakeev's death, the debacle on New Romulus and the conflict with Imperial loyalists, while the Republic (with the Reman Resistance integrated into it) has grown to encompass much of the former Romulan Star Empire.
