It's about time that an MMORPG will come out that takes brains and skill instead of just gear and buffs.

And for those worrying about high-level raids....

I must say, I'm quite impressed. They have the hype down very well at least, here's hoping they live up to it

I expect the game to be out in about 3 years. Wish it was sooner, but I sure as hell won't stop watching these forums anytime soon after THAT display (plus I'll be trying to get into beta >.> hehe).

Wonderful Webcast! I had just got up to speed on the fact that Cryptic had taken over the IP. A friend and I were both supremely dissapointed when we heard Perpetual was shutting down. So discovering this fact, this site, and watching the webcast made my "year".

There were just too many "highlights" to this webcast to go through in detail in just one post. Anyone who has not seen this really should watch it for themselves. Personally I'm simply delighted that this IP is being handled by intelligent, creative, experienced people. And I await it's release with baited breath...

I unfortunately missed a bit of it so I really hope they will post it on the website at some point for download perhaps.

I've got to say, I'm VERY impressed with what Cryptic are doing - great presentation and Q&A period. Kudos to you, Cryptic I think the IP is in the right hands and you guys are on the right track.

Things I loved:

-Some of the ships looked totally new, and awesome
-Hiring STAR TREK writer to assist with the game is a huge bonus
-The level of dedication to 'get it right' is obvious and impressive
-The CHANCE of it all being in 'One Universe/server'
-The fact that a person's 'career path/specialization' is taken into consideration and is part of being a Captain
-'Surprise Events' such as a sudden Borg invasion of a system, having to rally and fight them out
-Space combat looked very fun
-Ground combat looks like it could use some work, but I hope they're both more twitch gaming style rather than clicking icons
-You don't have to spend a bajillion hours playing to have fun/be competitive
-Exploration is going to be a big deal
-A whole lot more I won't bother going into, I'll just say hat's off to ya and I'm looking forward to learning a lot more

It's funny they showed the Borg as an event. I actually brought that up and was like "Wouldn't it be cool to see events as the Borg coming to kill Earth."

And then boom! THey show it!

As stated by another post... a lot of hype! Lets hope they can deliever.
