If by 'Trek feel' you are picturing your ship's yeoman coming to you with one of those electronic clipboards to sign as you play the DOff system.
Look, the DOff system is really good, and I like a lot of things about it. I think there's a lot of potential in it for other things -- like Duty
just for starters. And it will of course form the basis for the Department Head and First Officer systems. These are big, these are things no other game -- certainly no other space MMO -- has done.
But when you get down to it, it's a minigame. It's cool and all, and Heretic's communication throughout the development process was amazing. But it just did not grab me. Maybe when I play it some more, I'll get into it.
