Well 2 things will decide how long it last

Season 7 content and a marketing campaign next summer around the release of the next Star Trek movie - sure to be another Blockbuster

and that will carry it to the end of 2013 - from then well we shall see.

Of course the one thing that would carry this game for the next 5+ years would be a Sept 2013 launch of a new Series that takes place in the 2380's after picard so 2383ish

The KDF is resource being wasted. A revenue source, though smaller, to be aproached and used.
It is a refelction of the homoginized Trek universe from the films and television. The writers/producers have got the Trek experience so messed up they have to re-boot the entire franchise to get things to make sense again. I think this game is missing a golden oppurtunity to tell CBS and Paramount that we as fans are unhappy with the direction the franchise has taken but sadly they're all to busy making stuff that'll sell quickly to the fanbase they gained when the canon went south.

This game has a lot of nice things going for it, but without a complete reboot we're stuck with unbalanced items, incoherent stories, and a single player experience that really misses the point of being connected to the internet, but I can't really blame the devs because they are the same fans who were farmed by B&B when the next generation hit the airwaves.

I'm not sure the problem comes from the free to play model. I've played to several games before this one, and equally opened content didn't mean that the game couldn't survive. It's just the kind of content which was different. Things were just working differently. Sometimes the PVE is focused on getting gear for pvp (which is endgame content), sometimes the game is PVE heavy but it has nothing to do with farming (I played several games of this kind, this is why I find the amount of farming in STO shocking), sometimes the game offers no premade content or missions and users make the content themselves, but you can do basically anything you want in these games, including fighting whoever you want, building your own cities, empires, fighting pirates, monsters, fishhing, marrying another charachter, building your own ships, trade, ect.

The main issue with STO isn't really the lack of content, IMO, it's the lack of open content. Users can't really interact with eachother, they can't build anything together but the mandatory starbases and they have to do it the way the devs choose it, and it will look like to what the devs choose for you. With the kind of content we have in STO, you just end doing more farming, because that's what the game is about. There is zero political and economical aspect in this game, although it's the most obvious and "cheapest" content to add since players will create it from scratch. It would be great of factions had president, governors, mayors, etc, it would add a lot of depth to the game, and it would lead to purely user generated content, but cryptic is somewhat obsessed by making closed content, stfs or missions/quests you could already find in 1992 games. Basically the difference between The Elder Scrolls 1 and STO is the skin, the quality of SFX, and the online aspect (you can see other users on the map, they do exist but they could be NPCs and it wouldn't change anything), but nothing else.

This is the main problem of STO if you really want my opinion, although it's completely off-topic. F2P is just another way to make money, but it's definitely viable.

Useless console by far. The ol' trusty [Console - Tactical - Automated Defense Turret] does the job of shooting down stuff akin, if not even better.

Unfortunately it's no longer available, so the point defence is our only hope to those who don't have it. I find it useful for certain missions, especially in the Pi Canis Sortie Missions where you need to disable freighters, it takes down the shields and damages the escorts so I can focus on getting the optional.

Auto-defense turret was a pre-order bonus from Steam.

Hello any bells ringing up there?

Will you share our last worthy unique console with federation via lockboxes ?

YES or NO????

If you share it will you nerf MACO shields or give KDF similar to MACO shields?

Will you show some attention to KDF side?

Will we get any ships at all?

Will we get any OP ships at all?

Idc much about uniforms and content.....but it would be good to give us some of those also since other players care.

And finally allow new players to play KDF since lvl 1!!!!

Content is more than enough to get them from 1-50

I can even help ppl level up as long as they play KDF

I can give them my ship builds as long as they play KDF

Now your company did something very wrong. For the excuse that we are only 20% of the population and because of that u show us lack of attention and constant nerfing us when buffing the federation.
You forced me personally to instead of play the game and have fun to try to recruit more ppl for KDF side !

I am a customer i am here to pay and play the game and have some fun.

You apply to me psychological preassure and in order to keep KDF balanced I RECRUIT PPL TO KDF SIDE PROMISING THEM THAT I HELP THEM LVL UP AND I GIVE THEM ALL MY C STORE SHIP BUILDS I MADE AS LONG AS THEY BUY THE SHIP.

You guys force your customers to do your job this is just so wrong i already start to hate you and you not answering to my simple question.

Will you share our last worthy unique console and destroy KDF worthy and uniqueness and game balance at pvp?

Or you will keep things balanced and try to lure more ppl into KDF side by showing some more attention to KDF?????

If you dont treat ur customers fair and square then dont expect us to even give it a try on your future games.....

Right now your not answering my questions and you dont treat us fair at all!!!!

I feel like i am 2nd class customer when i have paid much more than some of the federation 1st class customers

But thats it i cant keep on paying RL money to buy new stuff and support KDF anymore unless you officially promise us that wont cripple us by taking away leech console and let the feds stack it with maco shields and also that you are GOING TO show us a lot of MORE attention in the future.

Thats all, the General needs to rest now until you answer my questions officially no trolls no jokes ty


ps my offer still applies if you are bored or not like federation and you wanna play KDF i can and will help you if you need help with any mission and also i will give you FOR FREE ALL MY DECENT SHIP BUILDS I MADE SOFAR.

Bortasq sci
karfi
fleet scourge destroyer
BoP (even that i dont fly it anymore and i suggest you not to fly a bop since its the most crappy ship in the game and combat cloack is a joke) (only thing good about BoP is that it looks cool ONLY!)

I wish I was in a position to answer your question, but I'm just a lowly player myself.

dude!

Get a hold of yourself!

*slap*

Of course they will get our console!

Of course they will get anything that made KDF unique!

Of course they will continue and always will get everything first and foremost.

Of course this game is extremely biased towards the KDF.

$$$$$$$$$$ < makes the world go 'round.

Until PWE decides to make the KDF a level 1 faction.. as it was before.. we will slowly die off,

Our 11 Most Endangered Animals .. ( 11 is the relevant one lmao )

Click links for more info and a short video on each species
1 Ivory-Billed Woodpecker
A North American bird so endangered it may actually be extinct
2 Amur Leopard
The world?s rarest cat: Only 40 left in Russia?s Far East
3 Javan Rhinoceros
No more than 60 of these swamp-dwelling Asian rhinos exist
4 Greater Bamboo Lemur
Here?s the scarcest of Madagascar?s fast-dwindling lemur species
5 Northern Right Whale
Hunted to near extinction, 350 right whales still swim the Atlantic
6 Western Lowland Gorilla
Disease and illegal hunting are taking an alarming toll on this gentle giant of a primate
7 Leatherback Sea Turtle
The population of the world?s largest turtle is dropping at an alarming rate
8 Siberian (or Amur) Tiger
The world?s biggest cat weighs as much as 300 kilos (660 pounds)
9 Chinese Giant Salamander
Humans are eating the world?s largest amphibian into extinction
10 Kakapo Parrot
So few of these flightless parrots remain that the survivors all have names
11 KDF Toons in Star Trek Online
These rare creatures have been neglected for years, trying to survive on their own. Their masters over feed the fat Federation players extreme amounts of added content, while ignoring the beautiful KDF. Estimated to be extinct by 2013
