STO: You can play it on a SDTV
MA2: You need a HDTV

In order to make STO more like ME2, you'd need 2 or so years more of dedicated, well-funded development. It just wasn't available. Maybe BW will do that with TOR, but we'll see. It's damned expensive to make an MMO that plays like a SP game.
Well, during an interview I remember the Bioware dev's saying they want a game that plays like the first 20 levels of ***. If you ever played the first 20 levels of ***, you might remember that it offered the 'fattest' content.

1. Each class has their own personal quests.
2. All the quest dialogue was voice acted.

After 20 it was like a kick in the tribbles. I think TOR is working to make their entire game like the first 20 levels of ***.

It was only much later that someone on the design team realized they put a scotsman in engineering and they did a collective 'Doh!'
That's pretty wild man! Where did you hear about that, the special edition?

I just found Rick Berman's "contributions" to Star Trek to be a blight on society. All of society, not just the Trek franchise .

Take it as a good-natured raspberry from the peanut gallery. You're clearly a good enough sport I may have to go back to reading your posts again.

Sometimes you are on a wobbly ship about to fall off a cliff (which moves as you walk around it) or you find a crashed ship whose mech cargo has activated and will try to kill you as you escape with the ships logs. Again exploration feature, much better than STO.
I don't think I could disagree more. The areas in ME2 are samey, and too few and far between... but in STO, there's literally hundreds of planets you can visit. I admit, some are samey - even some quests are generic, but the exploration in STO is definately alot better than ME2.

"some are samey?" "generic quests"

I'm sorry, you just turned STO into a grind that I don't want to play...
