I was recently given a used MAC pro laptop and I love it! I would love to be able to play STO while I am on the road, but it is IBM only right now. Are there any plans to support other platforms like MAC? That would be cool!

Thanks

Yes. They've hired a team to do just that. Hopefully it will be done by the end of the year.
STO is about my Liberated Borg Federation Captain with his Breen 1st Officer, Jem'Hadar Tactical Officer, Liberated Borg Engineering Officer, Android Ops Officer, Photonic Science Officer, Gorn Science Officer, and Reman Medical Officer jumping into their Jem'Hadar Carrier and flying off to do missions for the new Romulan Empire. But for some players allowing a T5 Connie to be used breaks the canon in the game.

It can be already played on an Intel based Mac, just not under OSX.

Edit: Here we go.

In that vein, Stahl told me Cryptic is already "in negotiations" to get STO onto Mac as soon as possible. He believes that it's very possible we will see Mac accessibility by the end of the year and seemed excited about the potential for a number of different and creative ways STO players could utilize multiple platforms because the sci-fi nature of the game could lend itself well to multiple platforms in the future.

It's time for STO to get a complete UI overhaul.

I thought it was the Priority One podcast interview where I first heard it.

There's been so many interviews over the last couple of months it's hard to keep track of them all.

I'm glad STO is finally being ported for the Mac users. Now both of you can play on your Macs.
