I am so glad about Cryptic taking over the reigns from "the company that shall not be named" and adding in their own style of Trek-goodness.
I have been playing StarTrek from the days when FASA Corporation owned the RPG rights back in the 80's and 90's, and on to West End Games, and now where it sits: Wizards of the Coast. I've been looking for players of the First and Second Editions of this MASSIVE franchise, but, alas, I cannot find many players who remember crafting M-class planets in star systems with the tables found in the back of the Captains' Guide.
Now that Cryptic is controlling the creativity and the visuals, I sincerely hope they place AUTHENTICITY and TIMELINE ahead of certain ASSUMED player-based / fan-based PREFERENCES. Don't get me wrong-- there are people out there who love StarTrek as it currently stands, and there is argument for expanding this; Understand, there are those who are NEVER satisfied, no matter how you look at things; even to the point of picking the tiniest of inconsistencies out and bashing those who find those particular people abrasive and unwavering in their stance. These people, on other forums, are known as FanBoys (or FanGals), for no other reason than to fan the flames of ignorance and place themselves as THE ULTIMATE ENCYCLOPEDIAS OF THEIR SOURCE, revoking the kind and often gentle ramblings of us who are truly fans and enjoy the 'suspension of disbelief', if only for a few hours...
I also respect Cryptic for doing what they can to place this into Beta as soon as they possibly can. I also feel that those at Cryptic will take the "flaming" of our forums and those who seek to hack and cripple the gameplay to meet their ends, prosecuting these "infidels" to the fullest extent of StarFleet regulation: Court Martial them in a Court of their Peers. Online, if possible.
I have played other online games and the hacking and bot-texters splattering their "buy game money with cash at our site" crap, ruining the game for others whom feel a yearning to be in the game and/or universe and rub elbows with Captain Kirk, Captain Janeway, Captain Sisko, Captain Archer and others for the camaraderie StarFleet can provide to its members.
As a member of StarFleet, I believe it is in OUR best interest to let everyone know there will be checks and balances in place to keep these kinds of things at bay.
Again, I want to thank Cryptic for their work on OUR most beloved franchise, and that I'm in to play! ^_^
Glad to see that Star Trek Online is being designed!
Quality and customer satisfaction are very important. Hopefully Cryptic Studios keeps those two items in mind.
I've always loved the Star Trek universe and am sure that I will enjoy playing STO in the future.
Thank you for giving us StarTrek fans HOPE!
Sincerely David Starr
