As for the release date, 2010 seems more realistic in order to get a well thought out and plotted game. Hopefully we will still see a late 2009 release. Considering this would coincide to the 30th anniversary of "Star Trek The Motion Picture" and the new Star Trek movie, it would be a good year to release it.
I agree, I got a little nervous when I read about the buyout, but in the end they made the right move. They went with a company that could provide them with deep pockets and allow them to focus on making great games and not have to worry about the rest.
2010 does seem far, but if it means they're going to roll out a top notch game I can wait...it beats the alternative, all out cancellation. I also hope they can bring it out end of '09 at the same time as ST:TMP 30th Anniv. and ST:Reboot that would be cool
All we can do is hope for more screenshots, trailers and of course the Beta to come out
