I am truly glad to see Atari shelled out the money for tv advertisements. Also, the fact that they partnered with SyFy to have the Star Trek marathon will get the message out to Star Trek fans that otherwise hadn't heard about the game. Good move Atari.

Yup, awesome benifits. It'll really help the game sell.

Now... a few bad things about partnering with atari.

The game should still be in beta... they're pushing it out too soon to meet atari's time frame.

Yes! It's such a good move to spend most of your money in trying to lure people into Lifetime subs, longtime subs BEFORE launch and trying to maximize initial box sales.

Instead of actually using the money to finish the game itself!

The game is done. The beta testing fixed pretty much every bug. I've only ran in to one minor one in headstart and am now level 12. No MMO releases in a perfect state. Heck, no MMO ever makes it to perfect. Compared to some launches I've seen, this has turned out fairly well except for that 3 hour server down time.

I assure you I am 100% serious. I've played alot of MMO's and a few from launch. This has been fairly stable. A few minor bugs, only one or two major ones, lag at the beginning, but the latest patch seems to have fixed it. All in all, it's going ok.

Some people have been worried about the queue thing but considering a dev just said they had 100 servers, I don't think the queue means the servers are full, i think it's a short queue to cut down on lag.

Dude, under what rock have you been hiding the last couple months?

The game is horribly unfinished. Even Cryptic themselves have admitted that in some last Q&A articles. But that they were forced to launch anyway.

Just roll a Klingon and tell me if you still think this game is finished?

Ground combat is horrible most of the time, as 70% of the time your NPC crew is stuck in the terrain!

Lot of missions are still bugged. And lot of times I need to retake missions and start all over again.

And we can go on...

You shouldn't be so cruel toward Cryptic, they do what they can.
