I had been considering it on and off, but never had a reason, but I was playing one Cryptic MMO, and despite the amount of complaining I post on the forums, I do love it. And Star Trek always seemed like an okay show. Just needed a little push.

That sounds like Generations with Soran and the Nexus. And that person you're referring to would the Kirk who got trapped in the Nexus, with his wife, who, becuase of Picard, decided to tell her that instead of joining Starfleet, he would be telling her how much he loved her.

How much different can it be?
Surpisingly, it's very different. For instance, there's no spaceship combat in Champions! :p
