I remember back when Star Trek Legacy was first released and all i could think of was how much potential was wasted in that game and how pathetic the Gameplay actually was (you could not even roll or fly a looping! only 90 up and down... in a SPACE game... yay)

I still played the sh*t out of it, just like i do now with STO because it was STAR TREK and i am a Fanboy.

Taking a look back now... it doesn't even seem that pathetic anymore somehow.

Seriously! Take a look yourself:

TNG Mission:

TOS Mission:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4yM94ZpS9Do


what i recognice now:
- proper Voiceovers! (i honestly dont see one frakking Text Window telling me what to do, how is that possible !?)...
- ...realy EPIC even with Sisko's, Picard's and Kirk's voices to name just a few!
- actual STORY inside the missions, not just *find the 5 shiny, kill 5 klingon mobs, repeat*
- you could WARP (with a real good looking warp effect) instead of just "full impuls"
- no red and blue lines behind ships ...and yet they still somehow appear to be moving?
- even the Galaxy Class looks very much like you would expect it to look like.
- even Starbases look like if they realy are from Star Trek and not just .... some random starbase-thingy


of course it is missing all that fun MMO stuff like...
- Social hubs, we all couldn't live without Risa anymore, right?
- no crafting at all, i realy wouldn't know what to do with all those anomalies if no Memory Alpha existed!
- no massive online battles ...only against A.I. Ships or cheap 5 player multiplayer deathmatch stuff
- not even the daily downtime or rubberbanding, i never would know when to quit playing!
- no new content... oh wait, that's wrong you could MOD that game and have pretty much every Spaceship there ever was: like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OHXMntPMPsU (yeah they are not all that professional, but the example is served and i am to lazy now to search for the lot of good ones)


oh and the Game was a cheap Xbox 360 port from the end of 2006, with a little updated Star Trek Armada Engine, so don't mind the cheap UI or buggy controls, the game was rushed out, you know?


...no sarcasm intended, sad but true.

hell yes it was...
but now i see things there i would wish they would be in STO and that makes ma a sad Panda.

the question that i am asking is: what is setting STO appart, besides the obvious that it is an Pay-To-Play-Online Game with all that MMORPG stuff on top of it.

or Would you play STO if it was just a Singleplayer Game just like Legacy was?

- obvious answer: Ground Missions, Legacy was space only...

anything else?
