They had better stay alive long enough to cost out the lifetime many of us purchased. As it is, this feels like Cryptic is in over their heads, is struggling to get a handle on things and make ends meet, and so it starting to cut its team down to what it can have at a bare minimum to keep STO online. The creation of the Galaxy X seems like desperation to me. I smell failure in the wind.
Another Star Trek game is biting the dust.
Well, this was the last time I was willing to let any MMOG try to rope me in. If it fails (which it is), I will never play another MMOG again. Too much time and effort invested for something to just fall apart, rendering all that money you spend moot.
This isn't just Craig taking a vacation. He's leaving STO and Cryptic and may or may not be coming back.
That is just not true, plain and simple.

You do not know anything about his personal life and what may have led up to him taking a sabbatical. Stop with the doom-saying. You are making a fool of yourself.
He also may or may not be coming back. This is also true.
And I'm really unconcerned if you think me a fool. Your opinion means less than nothing to me.
Just as your continual rants and doomsaying are less and less meaningful with every keystroke. From looking at your posts all these months you must read DOOM into your breakfast cereal and see imminent failure for -something- at every turn! -READ- what Zinc has said, -READ- what dstahl has said and GET. A. FRAKKIN'. GRIP!
When the executive producer, who's always claimed that he loves the IP, quits less than 6 months after the game launch, you don't think that might be a sign that things are going on in the behind the scenes that we don't know about?
So if I am understanding you right, the man should forget about the important things in life - like his wife and kids - just so he can stay on STO because he is a "trekkie"?
Might want to adjust the tinfoil hat down a notch or twenty...
