Are there any plans to convert STO to Mac?
 
I was recently given a used MAC pro laptop and I love it! I would love to be able to play STO while I am on the road, but it is IBM only right now. Are there any plans to support other platforms like MAC? That would be cool!

Thanks

Yes. They've hired a team to do just that. Hopefully it will be done by the end of the year.

It can be already played on an Intel based Mac, just not under OSX.

It was stated by Dan in one of these interviews or state of the game articles. I'll see if I can find it. But yeah, an actual Mac version is coming soon.

Edit: Here we go.

In that vein, Stahl told me Cryptic is already "in negotiations" to get STO onto Mac as soon as possible. He believes that it's very possible we will see Mac accessibility by the end of the year and seemed excited about the potential for a number of different and creative ways STO players could utilize multiple platforms because the sci-fi nature of the game could lend itself well to multiple platforms in the future.

I thought it was the Priority One podcast interview where I first heard it.

It's quite possible. I don't listen to podcasts so I can't say. That was just the first source I could remember off the top of my head lol. In any case yeah, Mac be coming!

There's been so many interviews over the last couple of months it's hard to keep track of them all. :)

I'm glad STO is finally being ported for the Mac users. Now both of you can play on your Macs.
