Hello everyone, I came to try out this game after it became free when a friend invited me, and am loving it so far, though I haven't really gone to the forums much. This game is quite a bit of fun and I enjoy it quite a bit. I never was a huge Star Trek fan (though I was aware of the show and had seen many of the films), but that doesn't put me off at all, as a game where I get to captain a ship (that isn't EVE) is rather interesting.
I am a Kiwi though, who came to the United States for uni and never went home. Just wanted to say hi to you all, since the server's down.
