I think the game could've used another year of production before launch. After it was launched, the staff was just playing catch up and couldn't put out the content the community demanded. When people level in a few days, it's hard to keep people busy. I would've liked to see the game delay its launch a year or two. But I wouldn't blame cryptic, as Atari was probably forcing them into a deadline.
I have almost started looking forward to these gloom and doom threads as a feature of the forums. These types of threads have been going since launch, or some before launch.
Despite all these types of threads the game is progressing. Considering where we started at launch the game has massively improved over the years. Looking forward to the future they are adding Fleet starbases, a new sector, more ships, new badguys... Ya looks like we're doomed to me.
But what was old(TOS)is new again. Trek has lived for over 40 years and you think that somehow you can assume what the majority is? I heard Trek had had its day before and that was just a few years after it had been canceled. Trek will always have a special appeal to anyone who looks at the stars and wonders what is out there. By that reckoning there were Trekkies making cave paintings and learning how to make fire. You can't niche the unresistable.
You missed my point by a wide margin, but I expected that to happen. It's part of the problem.
Yes. Trek will be around long after PWE has milked us dry and kicked us to the curb. At this point I just want to get it overwith, so the next crew can have a shot at making a real Star trek game for Star trek fans.
