I have to admt,those ships and weapon effects looked really nice.
But,I'm gonna have to defend STO's graphics on this one.
That game isn't about exploration.
Sure,the ships and combat looked nice,but they would look dull when venturing into uncharted space.
That is just beautiful. Did anyone else notice how one of the "energy beams" actually curved its path as the, presumably, emitter altered its position? thats the kind of attention to detail I expect from STO, yep I said it I have expectations here :p
The planets looked good, but the ships were hard to make out; except for the fighters (which I actually thought looked a bit 'cartoony', something I have never thought about STO).
I'm inclined to think that the graphics there weren't really any better than STO's, it was just darker, and used a shaky camcorder like view to obscure the details.
Star Trek has always been pretty bright (considering it is set in space and all); I don't think a graphical style like the one in the Nexus 2 demo would suit it at all.
It was an impressive show tho, thanks for the link
I agree there.
and I don't want to see Star Trek reduced to being that dark,no matter how nice it makes the graphics look.
As for the shaky camera,as we learned from Battlestar Galactica,it adds a sense of realism,but its not something I want to see Trek adopt.
