Star Trek Online is a series of multimedia stories and references based around the video game Star Trek Online. The series to date includes the game itself, a novel, and several websites and videos. The game is set in 2409, while the tie-in media is set both at the time of the game and before; leading in from the late-24th century setting of Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager.

Due to the Hobus supernova and the destruction of Romulus, the quadrant has become destabilized. The Klingon Empire took advantage of the Romulans' weakness, attempting an invasion. The Federation protested this aggression, leading to weakened relations and finally a breakdown of the Khitomer Accords.
A war finally began with the Klingons, whose empire has now expanded to include the Gorn Hegemony, as well as many other states. Meanwhile, there are other forces causing chaos behind the scenes. Species 8472 has returned, and is quietly manipulating the various races of the alpha quadrant. The Borg have begun a new series of incursions as well.

While not released under the Star Trek Online banner the comic book series Star Trek: Countdown has been tied into the backstory of Star Trek Online. That series itself was a prequel to the movie Star Trek, which established the destruction of Romulus, bringing about the state of affairs in the Romulan Star Empire in the Star Trek Online continuity.
The Path to 2409, while contradicting some more recent novels and making adjustments to information from some older works, does include information, concepts, characters and events from some earlier novels, including: Articles of the Federation, Death in Winter, and elements of the DS9 relaunch series. (See The Path to 2409 appendices for an in-depth break down of continuity and discontinuity between Star Trek Online and the novel continuity)
