I've searched the forums and various other places, and I can't find any specific time when the Head Start begins. It's Friday the 29th, but is there a specific time, like say 12:01am PST? Or perhaps it's "As early on Friday as our IT guy says 'Acknowledged!'"
I have a character concept in mind and I want to make sure I get the name I want. Also, I want to play ASAP.
Weren't there supposed to be a bunch of new races at launch? Things like ferengi, etc? There are the parts of a bunch of races, but you have to play as an "Unknown Alien" to do so, and when the update is released a month+ down the road...are we supposed to reroll so we can really be that race, instead of a mock-up of one?
Seems kinda weird since the parts for these races are already in the creator...
Edit :Yata...remember, you can have whatever name you want. You @handle is the only unique thing.
I was very impressed with Zinc's update on STO, and conclusion with the open beta. Acknowledging and accepting the criticism of the end of open beta trials, yet offering optimism about the "real" launch, and bringing us all in together as a team, working out the bugs and future content of STO together. Well said, well done, glad to support you guys in this awesome adventure. Thanks for making the dream for many of us "trekies" a close a reality as possible.
P.S. First suggestion....get STO running on the Mac OS X Snow Leopard.
All that gets to me is Ship scaling if they tweeked it a little more ANYTHING about this game can be fixed just start with that... The models are rendered great but the runabout is the size of what a defiant should be ... little things thats all just small things.
