Isn't that one of the main points of Star Trek itself? The voyage? The travelling?
The point of Star Trek, perhaps.
The point of STO, where exploration has been dumbed down to flying around in rectangular rooms with a (glitchy) space background, invisible walls blocking your progress, no real 3d movement but rather movement restricted to a flat plane, and generic boring alien species relegated to tiny, prefabricated exploration areas containing poorly designed missions... is to avoid as much of that drudgery as possible.
OP is mad because OP was stupid enough not to read the description of what he was buying, and instead of living with his mistake, he decides to come to forum and rant about it. Seriously?
pokersmith1 is mad because OP said something that made them angry, and instead of living with their mistake of being easily angered as undoubtedly the world does not care, they decided to come on the forum and fail-troll rant about it with ad hominems directed at the OP. Seriously?
What you call travel in Star trek I called commercial breaks.
Yeah, if they ever showed the ship traveling at warp for longer than it took the captain to dictate a log entry, you could be sure something was about to blow up or it was going to be a character episode. For all the infinity of space, Star Trek overwhelmingly takes place inside star systems.
Part of the time-sink of any MMO is travel time. How long it takes someone to get from point A to point B is factored into the /played hours it takes to go from 1 to 50. The faster the travel time the less /played hours it takes to reach end-game. That's always been why the super-warp engines and Captain's ability generally come around end-game.
It will be interesting to see how these new engines impact overall play-time.
STO is about my Liberated Borg Federation Captain with his Breen 1st Officer, Jem'Hadar Tactical Officer, Liberated Borg Engineering Officer, Android Ops Officer, Photonic Science Officer, Gorn Science Officer, and Reman Medical Officer jumping into their Jem'Hadar Carrier and flying off to do missions for the new Romulan Empire. But for some players allowing a T5 Connie to be used breaks the canon in the game.
