That seems a lot like a poor man's STO, awkward skeletons, no Z axis movement, can't fire behind yourself, planets even smaller than those in STO.....

To it's credit I do like how it's warp sequence is an actual warp field rather than "Sector Space" like STO.

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.

IIRC, the warp sequence was just a loading screen that you saw while it loaded your destination. So, for example, you're at Sol, you go click to Vulcan, you see the warp sequence while it's loading Vulcan, then you appear in the Vulcan map.

Then you obviously didn't look at the gameplay videos the company posted as it appeared 99% 'pew pew' (it was also top down view only in space - and all cinematics were pre-rendered); and the starbase lounges were just that - lounges for players to meet and RP.

I figured as much, seeing as no progress was made since nearly a year ago

I wish Cryptic could buy up the Okuda work done there.

The one thing I really would have liked that Infinite Space had was Avery Brooks' likeness.

STO doesn't follow the books and is also set further ahead so I'd love to see a reunion/meeting between Sisko and his child by Kassidy.

The downside is that Avery Brooks probably wouldn't come back and would be difficult to work with these days if he did come back.

The upside is that there are some good Brooks impersonators out there and that Brooks is actually very generous about people using his likeness as Sisko even when he isn't involved.

I figured. Still looked nice.

This is sad news indeed , not only for the devs of that game but for us as well ... , because I think that unlike SWTOR , this game would have "pushed" Cryptic to try harder .

They had "Sisko" ?
How long do you figure until "we" had him , or someone like him .
Sadly , no such "push" will be forthcoming now , and Cryptic can go on in their meandering ways , with no standard to measure themselfs against (as they don't see SWTOR as a direct competition) .

Well , at least now we have something to point at when players want to scrap STO and hope for a new beginning for a Trek MMO w/another gaming company .
Sadly , we all seem to loose something from this ... even Cryptic .

WOW... I remember that one!

Still, I wonder, with games like THIS and THIS, why does anyone want to play 2D browser space games...

...and will ever STO look amazing like that.
