Star Trek Online has released a trailer announcing its free-to-play launch.

The MMO went free-to-play this week after developer Cryptic Studios announced its plans to change the business model last year during an earnings call.

Now the MMO features free Silver accounts, as well as subscription-based Gold accounts that give users in-game perks for a monthly $15 fee.

Star Trek Online's new free-to-play trailer features in-game footage of alien planets as well as space missions and battles.
