Let me get this straight: tumerboy says the team is "confused and annoyed" by a trailer that features things that arent really in the game, so they make a brand new trailer that starts with bridge travel which isnt in the game? Gotta love double standards

The fact of the matter is this trailer is someone or some team's personal machinima project in which they stretch the limits of their demo record tool. It is utterly deceptive and bogus when it is presented as something besides machinima. It only does harm to attract folks with a mercedes and give them a trabi.
Please stop being unethical.

People getting upset over a trailer for a game that doesn't charge any money to access in order to validate the product for themselves - and potentially get hooked. Hardly the most dubious of advertising.

By the way Cryptic, it might be an idea to actually add in some small print saying this footage is representative of the actual product, a game. Some people may gullibly believe that signing up to STO actually transforms them into digital characters that run around in the game - TRON style.

You are completely missing the point. In another thread tumerboy said that the dev team was "confused and annoyed" that the old KDF trailer showed things that werent representative of actual gameplay. That makes it very ironic when the new trailer they release starts off with something that is also not representative of actual gameplay, and would imply that that dev team is also "confused and annoyed" by this new trailer like they were about the old one.

As for the Tholians on the ship in the trailer, I'm surprised that they didn't use the design they have for the Tholians in their Environmental suits.

(Since they had the Dev Blog where they showed how they had designed the Tholians, and their suits to wear when they were outside their hostile/hot worlds.)

But now that I look back, maybe that was just at the artist level, and hadn't been programmed/coded

Maybe they were showing one of the future Season 7 Tholian missions with the Tholians in the ships!

They may have some things that don't appear in game, but I think the trailer did a good job of conveying the wonder of the Star Trek Universe, and some of the Season 6 content.
I liked the trailer.

(And maybe adding a planet to your starbase background will be a special project, like having the glass ceiling as a featured project. Makes sense to me.)

There have been some bumps with season 6, but I'm liking it.

The very first thing that came to mind when I started watching this trailer was tumerboy's comment about the KDF trailer:

If you replace "Atari" with "PWE" and "ships bombarding planets" with "bridge travel" it would sound exactly like he was talking about the new trailer.

Guess who's back...back again!
