Very interesting my wife and i can't wait for this to come out .
I know what you mean my wife and I have basically stopped playing everything else because this game is so exciting for us, and this is the big talk at all the ST conventions we attend...honestly at Shore leave in Baltimore more folks were talking about this than the Trek movie... a lot of expectations are riding on this game.
I agree with you... a lot of the trekkies I know around my age (20's) are more excited about this game then the new movie. I've never been a huge fan of the original series... nobody should take that as a slam, I just grew up watching the Next Generation and the other series (DS9, Voy, Ent). Going back to Spock, Kirk, etc MIGHT be a great idea, or it might kill trek as we know it.
Regardless, this game means more to me then the movie because it is about the future of trek, not the past (although I liked Enterprise... I know, in the minority again)... I want to know what happens to bring the Federation and Klingons to war... and I want to be able to get involved in the story, take part in it, captain my own ship and pick my own crew, etc (which is why I check this site every day instead of the movie site).
This game is, without question, the future of trek.
If the game and the movie bomb... we might be looking at another decade or two with no real Trek presence (except the books, of course)... if it's huge, makes tons of money, and gets great reviews, it could help revive Trek in CBS and Paramounts eyes.
In response to capjgt, nope. No Beta yet (from anything I've read or heard, and no date for a beta either). Thats okay though... I've already waited a year or more for this game (and then went through the heartbreak of the previous developers ball drop and the apparent shelving of the game), as long as it gets made and is taken seriously/given the time and effort it needs, I'm sure we'll all be amazed by what we get ^^
first we would like to thank Cryptic Studios and Al Rivera for taking the time, making that interview possible and for answering some of our questions and supporting a foreign-language Community.
The questions we asked are a bit dated and answering took longer than expected because of some technical problems. So some of our questions were answered in the meanwhile by other interviews or the official FAQ. Other questions, regarding the translation of the game to German language and server locations in non-US countries for example, Cryptic Studios doesn't want to answer yet.
Thanks Calvert! Yeah a lot has been fleshed out from other interviews but it is still great to see any more additions out there. The Shuttle info was interesting to see. I also liked the question about the clothing but I think it was cloudy on non duty clothing. The way it sounds at the moment seems like there might not be any =(.
Making a German language version is a no-brainer. No other language is as important for this game after English... If Cryptic can't figure that out, it would prove that they are listening too much to some out-of-touch bean counter...
I hope they're reading this
May I ask why German? It would seem to me that French and Italian would be at least as important, and Spanish and Chinese (Mandarin) have many more speakers world-wide. I'm not saying German isn't important, but why German above all others?
