It's one of the best launches of an MMO. I played AO, EQ2,AC, LOTRO, WoW ect at release. This is as good as something this big gets.

The only fail is your unreasonable expectations. Learn patience, grasshopper.

Game Mechanics Blow
No Crafting whatsoever, Memory Alpha is a joke.
No real Star Trek Feel in my opinion.
Space feels like a small instanced box.
pre order ingame items still have not been recieved.
No support on tickets going on 4 days now.
Serious lack of content and no endgame.
Mindless button spamming, for content with very little attack strategies.
No way to find a your fleet, follow, formation in groups.
Very little ingame information on what items do, buffs, debuffs effects.
The list goes on.

I have played many mmorpg's, and stiill do.
Launches, I have been there.
Nerfs I have been there.

I am not a fast leveler and usually take my time exploring and looking in every nook and cranny.
Flame me all you want.
This game has no hope I'm afraid.

Gameplay threads are filled with bad sentiment on BASIC undelivered promises.

As much as I love Star Trek, this game does not deliver. I suspect that even if they hire
a truck load of devs, and artists this will not achieve. I give it 3 months till it's burried on
mmorpg.com game's list.

Lotsa hype, no deliver.

I'm not flaming you, but your original rant was a bit low on specifics. It's possible this game will never be to your liking with so many problems making your life miserable. When Ultime Online released, at the time I was excited, but day one was so horrible, I never logged in again. I tossed the disk and never gave it a second thought. Life is too short to grind rocks into dirt when there is so much dirt around already.

There is no depth.
There is only damage dealt and damage received.
There is no weight to class.
I doubt there's any real weight to race.
The ground mechanic needs a massive overhaul -- and I *mean* <MASSIVE>.
Space combat = excellent.
Starship Captain experience < satisfactory.
Away Team Leader experience = completely unsatisfactory.

I can't complain that the RP aspect is non-existent. All MMO'RPG's leave the 'RPG' part up to inter-player interaction. That's fine. A real RPG makes the player(s) tell a story. Everything else is just a game board or a set of instructions. Though I've heard people complaining at endgame-Admiral level that content has run out already. This is entirely, and I mean ENTIRELY unacceptable in the first week of launch for a game with a monthly subscription.

That said, every mission is nearly the same, with different dialogue. Cryptic has replaced the "Find 10 feathers, Kill 8 Giant Birds" grind with, "Warp in, Space Battle, Beam Down, Ground Battle (maybe pound F a few times), Beam Up, Space Battle, Warp out (maybe repeat Part B and Warp Out again)." After repeating the same formula so many times, I'd almost rather find 10 feathers and kill 8 giant birds. At least the scenery will be different when I do it again in 15 minutes.

All of that said, I still have fun playing the game. That must mean it has potential. Cryptic has to do something. STO is not beyond rescue, but if something doesn't happen in the next two months, I'm afraid to say STO will go the way of Asheron's Call 2. The day SWTOR launches, STO would be a memory. That would be a serious shame.

Cryptic needs programmers with vision.
They need writers with egos.
