    I spent the whole day in the queue or slogging through episodes. Mostly in the queue.

    Made LC too and got my new ship. I went with an Escort class (am Tactical). I know it's totally bandwagon at the moment but I think I'm going to go as pure space damage as I can.

    Also discovered that I can completely change my character's model for energy credits. And my BOffs. Much time wasted ensued.

    I made two massive Klingon twins for my Away team. They're hilarious.

    I'm going Eng/Cruiser, indestructibility + shield extend ftw.

    Bought an escort with credits anyway, in case I'm playing with a couple of other Eng/Cruiser friends.

    BOffs get one free change and you personally get a free change each time you rank up.

    Ah, excellent, thanks. Going to pick up my copy tomorrow on my lunch break.

    So I got a phone call from EB Games today telling me that our copies of STO were running late because of a snowstorm.

    I sighed, thought about the FF11 CoP release chaos due to a hurricane, and said "Oh well, when will they be in then?"

    The girl said "They'll be out around 12pm, not 9:30am like our games usually are."

    I was like "You're calling me because they'll be 2.5 hours late? I'll be working anyways."

    She said that people get really upset if their games are late.

    I thought it was funny. Major nerd rage if you get upset over 2.5 hours of lateness for a video game.

    Wow, I totally laughed out loud as I read that. Hopefully Amazon delivers as promised. I'd like to have my Borg BOff and DS9 uniforms when I create my Trill tomorrow.

    I tried the game in headstart... I don't think it's a bad game, I just wasn't too impressed. I found sector space to be extremely blah and corny looking. The space combat was fun, but I can't imagine myself finding that enjoyable for very long.

    Another thing, for spaceships that can travel faster than light, it sure took a long time moving around... felt like I was driving a Ford Model T through space.

    Space is a big damn place, even when moving faster than light.

    I played a tad on saturday, but towards the evening I started getting a lot of lag and it was hanging at loading screens w/ communication troubles so I got off. Also, I finished the SS Azura mission at hte beginning and Quinn let me pick another BO which I picked the tactical one, and damn if I didn't get my BO. Figured I'd check and see if it fixes when I log back in, but haven't done it yet.

    Also, since I ordered at Gamestop and got the constitution ship, can I get one on every character, or do I just get 1 ever?

    I believe, but don't quote me on this, that it is for every character you ever make.

    Bonuses are for every character you ever create on the account. Steam unlocks the retail version at 3PM and UPS tracking says my Amazon CE was delivered, so I'll be making my new character after work! :D

    One of the things I don't like about this game is the lack of a death penalty. You get blown up and have to wait 15 seconds to respawn at a location a bit away from where you were fighting. It's completely weak and such a carebear attitude towards gaming. There are huge debates going on about it at the STO forums. What do you guys think? Is this game too easy? I am seeing people at the Admiral rank today already, and many many Captains and Commanders.

    Well they do want to grab some people from WoW, so making another carebear game helps in that way. I don't know, I think the entire idea behind no penalty for death is retarded. On the opposite side I thought the death penalty for Aion was complete crap as well considering how annoying it was to get to some areas

    I apologise for the bad graphics. I have a great graphics card but a shit processor and have to turn the graphics down to minimum to be able to play.

    Here's my ultra sexy Away team (my main character is in the centre):

    I gave my Klingons some tribbles. Every now and then they haul them out and start petting them and the tribbles squeak and squeal, which makes me laugh every time.

    Picked it up off the STO forums. The artist's name is in the lower right corner I think. It got squished uploading to BG though. I thought it was really funny.

    No problems for me logging in on "official" release day. Maybe I was lucky and missed all "waitng que".

    As for death penalty, in a game like this, perhaps the best means to institute something would be like Guild Wars and give a -% to stats or shields/weapons etc that increased each time you died in 1 instance and took special actions/certain amount of time to recover from. I will be playing this ultra casual so I cant really invest my opinions on something wont (hopefully) affect me too much.

    I'm wondering what people are thinking about this now that it's out, too.

    Are the things that were huge complaints a couple weeks ago looking like they'll be ironed out eventually?


    Mostly though just, is it worth giving it a shot in general?
