Darn it, Lore, you had to toss this bomb into the room just when I was contemplating WoW. Laughing

Star Trek Online...hype or hope? I will follow this with interest.

Looks like fun. I've been interested in a Space MMORPG for a long time especially between this one and EVE online. I like the fact you can interact as a crew member in Star Trek Online, but EVE's Dominion upgrade seems to be addressing that little point they're missing in their own game. Plus Dust 514 is a first person shooter set in the EVE online universe and it reminds me of Halo.

It would be cool if you could pay extra and get to play as say the Doomsday device or the Crystalline Entity, maybe even Veger on Star Trek Online just to shake up other players and races.

Is anyone else playing? Or has anyone even heard of it? Smile I was quite surprised about the lack of information.

Trekkies, I know you lurk here Very Happy

I have heard of it, but have never played. I play WoW, which doesn't tend to leave time for other games.

Also, stealing that image to use for wallpaper.

Av, may I ask why? If that's due to interaction requirements, it works well without any, you can do the solo parts as if it's all your own.

Sorus, pleased to hear that Very Happy This one does have the looks, I guess I'll post some more screenshots here, including a few of my own, some are stunning (boasting not about my screenshot taking skills, but about the game, those not mine are actually mostly better, like the one above).

Also it can take little time to enjoy it, I generally don't have much time to spare for computer games currently, but this game can be well played in small bits and pieces (though at times it's hard to move away Smile) and advancement is pretty fast.

Some more pretty ships, now these are mine Very Happy





Suliban Helix, now this thing is definitely not mine...



A Tholian



Worf leads the way



Aaand look like Photobucket tuned down the quality, if anyone wants better, I can look where else to upload these.

Thanks, glad to hear that Smile Got lots more of screenshots still Very Happy

Some of the shiniest ships are still those that belong to the Borg, it's even a bit of a pity to shoot those...



On the brighter side, if this can be said about Nausicaans and their ships (though it has to be admitted these are not to everyone's taste).



And got to consider carefully what you're doing if you're inviting Romulan designers, they do know how to impress, but a transparent floor over lava...

That floor would be a bit disconcerting, but on the bright side: Warm feet.

I am getting tempted to check it out. Those graphics, the customization options...

Though I am quite confused by the chronology.

Cags, thanks! Smile

Then Klingon interiors are the best Smile Romulan ones can have other transparent uncomfortable things, like windows that look as if you're going to walk into empty space, transparent floor over a part of the singularity core... And the screenshot with lava under the floor is not on a ship, it's in a cave that contains an Iconian gate.

Glad to hear that Very Happy Not like there's harm in trying, it's free-to-play - unless you call something like potentially dropping WoW harm Twisted Evil Though you can keep both, this one can be not too time-consuming if you prefer so. And it's a good time, the winter celebrations just started, Q organizes those and gives out presents. Not the Q from TNG, if I'm not mistaken, his son.

A few decades after the DS9 events (the main timeline, not the one from the new movies). If some specific things cause questions, maybe I can clarify, a lot happened.
