Here is a good rumor......several months ago while at Gamestop the clerk mentioned that STO had a scheduled release date but when he checked the system it was not there. He seemed to think it was for the first quarter of next year.....but not anymore.

The reason the clerk thinks there is a release date is because in the Game Informer Article it was said they are planning for a release a little over one year from the article. So roughly Nov of 2009, but this would not mean there is a specific day set in stone yet.

That Quote makes the space combat sound limiting? mabey not true real time?

What do you guys think about the space combat?
It just means you won't be dogfighting in a Galaxy-class ship. And even in a Defiant-class ship, the speed will likely be balanced such that strategy has somewhat more weight than aim.

That's how I read it, at least.

When did Borg not have shields?

THought they did .. hm .. will have to watch those episodes again. They have some sort of field around them I think (when Worf and Data got Picard as Locutus, I thought they commented about going through the Borg's something-field)

Is anyone else disappointed at how infrequent the updates have been of late? I mean, we get one long-ish interview that's mostly old information, and we pick it apart like vultures trying to glean some new meat from the old info carcass.

Do we know of any plan by cryptic to give us more tidbits more often?

I had to wait to post the first interview. PC Gamer purchased it from me and as such I was only able to link to a forum that posted the original interview. I am working on a follow up with Cryptic that will alllow fans to send in questions they want to ask.


Original interview is linked below.

One of the dumbest things any devloper has said ever.

See this is the difference; this is why the ST mmo is in such awesome hands now compared to the disaster of NGE proportions that Perpetual was creating

No, not at all. I take updates as they come in. I'm not chomping at the bit for more information. It also means they may be actually working on the game and not messing around like that other developer did. Cryptic has taken Perpetual's lessons to heart. Never ever promise something you cannot deliver on. Never ever lie to your future customers to grab headlines or for any other justification. Be very very careful what you do say, because every word, every syllable, will be dissected and scrutinized down to the nth degree.

Cryptic, take your time. Do it right.
