C'mon, when (if?) you heard the song "Starships", you didn't think of Star Trek, or even Star Trek Online?
When people come across the word "starship", they don't think of Star Wars or Battlestar Galactica, or Dr. Who. They think STAR TREK!
And how many songs actually mention the word "starship"? The band Jefferson Starship doesn't count, since their name isn't in a song.
Honestly, having listened to the song, it doesn't make me think of Starships at all. It makes me think of every other generic pop song to have come out in the last decade. But hey if you like it, that's great. Just don't try to add it to trek, use your music player to listen to it.
"The universe is a beautiful place, full of wonders. And it wants to kill you."
If anything, they should put in the Vulcan version of the Milkshake song.
"My frozen dairy-based confectionery attracts all the males of the species to the facilities. Indeed, it is superior to yours. I could teach you the finer details but that would require monetary recompense on your part."
starships has nothing whatsoever to do with star trek or even star ships, they might have as well said fireworks are meant to fly, blackbirds are meant to fly, etc
if we were to have real life music in game (perhaps in the star base bars and clubs via some sort of user picked jukebox functionality) I would like a mix of appropriate instrumental with perhaps the odd vocal song. Also not just upbeat boom boom boom music, something a little soulful like Spider Robinson's song he wrote with Dave Crosby as he was working Heinlein's "The stars are a clock" premise into Variable Star:
I love the Nicki Minaj song "Starships" ... well, just for one line of the chorus:
"Starships were meant to fly"
I always think of Star Trek and also Star Trek Online when I hear that musical phrase.
So, I'm thinking, how can we somehow incorporate that song or just a sample of that musical phrase into Star Trek Online?
How about Cryptic puts a Nicki Minaj-styled NPC (hey, she already looks a bit like an alien with her makeup and hair ) into the shipyard of Earth Spacedock and the KDF orbital shipyard, right near the Ship Selector? Heck, just replace the Ship Selector NPC with the Nicki Minaj NPC.
And THEN, whenever a player accesses the Ship Selector function, there's a voiceover with the sampled line:
"Starships were meant to fly"
just like the Holo-Leeta always says "Spin the Wheel and Win" when a player access the Dabo game
Oh god no, next thing you'll have is Lady Gaga, Britany Spears, Paris Hilton, Juston Bienber NPC's in the game, the day any of those appear in the game is the day I leave, lol
A-HA! That's it! Replace the disco music in Club 47 with an ENDLESS CYCLE of Nicki Minaj's Starships!
And, to mix it up, throw in a mix of Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, and Justin Bieber, sure. Paris Hilton is a singer, too? Well, not really ...
Hey, Bieber's got a new album out now, and he's getting into trouble (methinks, media stunts) which are getting him plenty of buzz. Having his music in Star Trek Online could bring in more of the young MMO crowd. Mostly male, sure, but that may be comparable to the Bieb's RL demographic
