Hi guys & gals. I'm kinda a former trekikie, but I guess we never stop being trekkies. I used to run the website Section31.com while I was in college and once I sold the domain I have honestly have not been interested in Star Trek at all until I heard there was an online game coming out. IIt's about time Star Trek created a game like this because there are so many possibilities involed with the genre. In fact, I gave up running my news website to play Star Wars Galaxies. I had hopes and realized them in making a Dark Jedi Master, which I did achieve before SOE screwed the entire game up and everyone left for WOW on our server.

Truth is this ... World of ******** is a grind fest I'm totally sick of it and no longer have fun playing. There are raid schedules you have to keep. Guilds hope you get the 25 players geared for their roles online ... on time and ready to go... as well as prepared ( which NEVER happens ). And if you want to gear doing PvP? ... Takes less help but almost as much time.

I want to experience everthing Star Trek in this game. There are so many possiibilities. It's an endless resource for content... I just want a game that is not a grind fest and totally true to the Trek Universe which offers a hell of a lot of content.

Guys - just to clarify - there WILL be persistent, ground zones. Some missions take place in instances, others don't.

I'll bug Craig to do an interview.

I really like the idea of boundless territory. Also i like the ability to "Create my own Race."

One i would like to mention is that i would like to be able to have other human players on my ship, or me on some other players ship. But one way or another i like commanding a ship wether the crew is Npcs or human players.

I would like to see the training be on the halodeck just getting you and your friends together to have some fun with a battle simulation. Anyway one way or antoher this looks like a really good game so far.

I've always wanted to visit Earth as it is in Star Trek. Visit the Federation Academy...Federation Headquarters...take the tours and see the sights. LOL

Seriously though, I bet it would be fantastic.

I hope the devs have similar thoughts in mind as well.

Only thing I really want to know what we would do for payment. Is it gonna be a pay with credit card, a buy a card and punch in code, or will they do the uber off chance that we won't pay at all (lol).

Either way, looks good, gonna miss the walking onto another persons ship but make your own race sounds good

Just read this and thankfully they have done away with the silly idea of multiple players controlling one ship. It just wont work, I doubt we will ever see it.

This is exactly why we need individual player ships, lol. Props to you guys for getting that part right. I played Final Fantasy 11 (mmorpg) and loved it... but it was the same way. Couldn't do anything without the help of level capped players... couldn't find people to do missions with any more... updates were rare and when they came out, they didn't balance with the rest of the game, etc.

The playability in STO sounds great, not only because you can do what you want when you want to, but because you'll be able to play solo as much as you want (with the exception of larger battles and instanced events, I'm sure). You can work together when you want to, but you won't have to all the time. This will mean the game will last longer and will be playable even after the initial players stop playing (... if they ever stop playing. ^^ )
