    Haven't heard anything about this either but I watched the trailer and it seemed pretty cool.

    Watched a trailer, it'd be fun despite not knowing anything about Star Trek, reminds me of Eve Online but with planet expeditions. Could be extremely fun. I also heard you can just be a person, a pilot or a fleet controller. As in, there's a lot of choices.

    I might check it out. Rule number one with a mmo is not to get too excited. There is a 95% chance it will be nothing like you hoped till a year or more of its lifespan. Maybe I'm just bitter from AoC and WAR but that's how I see it.

    I got a strong EVE vibe also when watching/reading about it. I also have some kinda problem with the person models that I can't figure out. The scenes in space look fine and well, but the scenes with people just strike me odd for some reason.

    I'm going to wait and see some gameplay footage before trying it. I've been heavily anticipating this and Stargate Worlds, but the latter is looking and shaping up to be utter fail from what I can tell. I'll continue playing FFXI, but I'll be playing one of the two aforementioned on the side.

    I am hoping it will suck (please please please please), because I really don't need another addiction.

    But I will give it a shot.

    Edit:
    I am so getting my own galaxy class, I don't care that the sovereign is that much stronger!
    I'm going to sit in my chair and go "Make it so!" every time I go to warp!

    Hellfury, did you ever play Bridge Commander? Similar-ish experience. :D

    I guess I'm the weird one in that Picard/Janeway/Sisko/Archer were equally charismatic and likable, but don't like kirk.

    I played Bridge Commander to death and back!
    The IRC channel I used to hang out at back in the day would have tournaments and crap.
    I had a preference for the Kessok Heavy cruiser myself, but me mates would know this, and would always choose the small quick federation ships to stay the hell out of my firing range* and gang up on me.
    Whenever I got them in my sights, I almost one shot then, swatting them like flies. But more often than not, they beat me silly. The Kessok ships were way way too slow. but that firepower, weeeeeee.

    And no, you're not the only one (well, archer sucked), Picard > Kirk! I wasn't a big Janeway fan though, but Sisko was good too!


    *edit (not range, but solution? arch? thingiemabob? whatever it's called when they're close, but they can't be reached by your weaponry for a firing solution)

    i respectfully disagree

    picard/kick > sisko > archer > janeway

    tied picard and kirk only because kirk deserves 1st due to history being made etc

    I just got an email about Star Trek Online today saying the pre-order beta will be starting up on 12 January 2009. Looking forward to it. I hope it doesn't suck.

    I know that the company putting together this game was working on a game based on ancient Rome but they closed it down during the beta and switched to this game. I played the Roman beta for a while but it was like WoW set in Rome. So many Wow clones.

    You wouldn't know that though because you've demonstrably never picked up a book nor educated yourself on the matter. Let me guess, overweight housewife?

    I will only play this base don two things. 1. will we be allowed to go to planets even if that will disturb them. 2. are they going to give us 30 minutes explanations for every fucking thing.

    you know what the correct answers are, dammit.
