but we are looking at bean counters now.
cyrptic may still have creativity rights to st online but they no long have control of there bridge.
means if the star trek movie tanks.
cyrptic next project just does so so on the market. you will see the bean counters pull the plug on it or they'll water it down to get it realeased as fast as possible to try to get there money out of it.
atari was big in the 80's arcade games, alright in the early 90's amiga computers.
but they been almost bankruped since then.
as well your looking at a europian company who probly doesn't get the whole star trek thing compaired to north america.
its all about the $$$
God I hope I'm wrong about this!!!!
I agree, Cryptic was Mainly about GOOD Product, care and it's players. Infogames/Atari.. There IS A reason they almost went belly up, THEY do have a tendancy to "Buy up and Wash out" (A term we use in the hotel industry that means, When a "Forign Banker" (IE: a patel) Buys a hotel, it's great, Money is still coming in, then somehow, Bills aren't being paid, they let it fall apart and sell it under a US TAX failure clause, and make 2x what it is worth) I hope I AM wrong too..
I REally wanted to see this game happen, and play till i am very old...
*please don't be real*
(no offence to anyone, it IS A statistical fact) *hugs to all*
