It's not odd when you consider that STO uses the same game engine as Champions Online.

I'm guessing here, but I *THINK* that this same game engine is just an updated/reworked version of the CoH game engine. Basically, they started working on it with CoH, then once CoH/CoV was out I'm guessing they tore out a lot of its guts and reworked the framework/tools/graphics engine before putting it back together again to build Champions Online/STO. As I said, just a guess...but I relaly don't believe I am too far off the mark where that is concerned.

In either case, they need to provide more social/chat/voicechat options. Period. It's a must-have.
