It's a pity because it offered an alternative to STO (also likely more Trek and less pew-pew)
Then you obviously didn't look at the gameplay videos the company posted as it appeared 99% 'pew pew' (it was also top down view only in space - and all cinematics were pre-rendered); and the starbase lounges were just that - lounges for players to meet and RP.

I playtested it 5-6 times. It was a standard FTP browser game pretty-much built as a top-down shooter. The only really interesting aspect of it was that it was set in the traditional TNG era and that Mike Okuda did some design work on it.
