He kind of contradicts himself

"we want to bring star trek to life, I dont want to just create an mmo that just happens to have a star trek skin on it thats somehing that I really want to avoid"

however previously he said...

"we already have an engine, we just slap star trek on it and boom there ya go" or something (not a direct quote).

So To me it sounds like they are tweaking Champions engine to work with star trek, however it will not be as "Technical" as the perpetual game was looking to me.

I just dont want this to be another ST game that fails And I am trying to stay positive...

You know, the guy in the back- I think he was messing around with a ***** pack that was actually slung under his belly. I kept replaying it to see if he was really moving his junk about, and it looked like he was unsnapping and digging around in a pocket.

Im really looking forward to the game. Its good to know that they are really committed to giving fans a good Star Trek game. Interview was great, look forward to the many to come.

In the webcast at Las Vegas he states that they are reviewing the shows, movies, and even the books, that is what really shows they want to do a good game, instead of just adding to the franchise.

Im really interested in the Alien creation for the game. I wonder if they will release a creation program so that you can start creating your race prior to game launch. Just my thoughts.

People analyze things way too much in PC games. This is what is killing the games... people are getting so picky that the devs are scared to do anything different without getting slaughtered.

I have to agree, I don't really think he's contradicting himself. Starting off with an engine ready to go has huge advantages. Yes he stated that you could plug ST in and there ya go, but "tweaking" is a pretty light word when it comes down to it. They will have lots of work to do to modify the engine so it fits the games' mechanics.

About the guy in the background, one of the members here got it right that he's wearing a kilt (sorry, I forgot the members name). What he's digging in is a 'sporran'. Since kilts don't have pockets, that's how you carry your "junk". And yes, it's like a man purse. This guy is wearnig a Utilikilt, a non-formal kilt with no clan affiliation. (sorry, just had to clear that up)

I loved the video and I love how Jack makes himself available for these interviews. He's pretty clear cut on what he expects and doesn't expect from the game and keeps it very realistic. Get the basic core stuff done and out then they can add add-ons later. I hope they take their time with game content and additional features. Thats the icing of the cake. The end of the interview was key though, how in the end he doesn't want it to be a mmo with a star trek skin. That shows a lot to their thinking.

Just caught wind of this interview. Good stuff! I like the ship interior and exterior customizability especially.

Well he did sound a bit contratictory in that he said he didnt wana just be a skin but i think they are not dumb enuf to do that. I will agree with some of you that there have been less good startrek gams out there then bad but i think this one will be cool. i am some what afriad however of having to scroll through countess menue screens or being bossed around by guildies with giant ships. that would realy suck.
