Is anyone else getting this?

If so it would be really cool to co ordinate and play together. It's a fresh game and being on the same servers, and possibly same factions we could help each other out.

Yes. When I saw this game as the cover story for Game Informer and read it, I was definitely intrigued. Whether it's free to play or not, I'll be getting my copy.

If they offer a free trial, I will check it out. Other then that, I really hate paying over 40 bucks for a game I may not be able to invest the time into or like. I did just leave City of Heroes after 6 years though and I do need a fresh MMO

I have heard some cool things about this game from a podcast that is dedicated to Star Trek. The hosts are beta testers for the game so they talk about some of the things that you can do in the game. It sound cool but again, it's not mac compatible so I won't be getting it.

I've seen the low review scores, but man is this game fun as hell.

The space battles are a lot of fun, and while I'm not a huge fan of the away team missions, they break up all the time spent in space.

So there's no monthly pay?

Yeah, I believe the monthly fee is the same as WoW, but I bought a lifetime membership so i wouldn't have to worry about it.

The game has it's flaws, but it's a lot of fun.

I have been wanting to play this game. I love Star Trek but none of my friends enjoy Star Trek or don't care to play it. I definitely want to be a Vulcan or Q....but something tells me you cant technically be a Q. Sad times.

I heard a lot of mixed stuff about this game. Nothing that bad but at the same time nothing really wowing the people who have talked about this game.

I dunno why I haven't already commented on this...

I have mixed feelings about STO. As a hard-core Star Trek fan I absolutely love that it is so full of Star Trek lore and history that every new mission makes me wonder if I might see one of my old favorite characters. I just about lost my mind when I was confronted by an adult Naomi Wildman, who was a child on Voyager. I've also run into a few other series characters as well, and I've heard there are many more I have yet to meet. There's also a cool meeting place called the "Captain's Table" that is reserved for lifetime members (guilty...) where time doesn't exist. I actually saw Janeway once (and she's dead in this universe). It's pretty awesome.

It also very nicely ties in the new movie with the "prime reality" that continues in the game.
Spoiler:
It begins with narration by Leonard Nimoy explaining how he went back into the past to prevent the destruction of Romulus, but, as he explains it, time continues to march on in the original reality. So in the game, Romulus has been destroyed, but Vulcan is still intact. This makes me a happy camper because I love Vulcans and almost swore off Star Trek altogether when the planet was destroyed.

One thing that bothers me is that it has a lot of repetitive questing like most MMOs do. There are A LOT of space battles, which are cool at first, but become so repetitive and boring that I've begun filtering out missions that I know will be heavy on the space battles. Now, every time I approach a planet I hope I'm going to be thrown into a ground battle. Ground battles are harder, IMHO, but they're much more fun. They're also not nearly as common as the space battles, though.

The gameplay is pretty intuitive. It's very customizable. You can program function keys to your heart's content. I actually programmed a key so that I could walk. The default is a jog, but I'm a big roleplaying nerd and wanted to walk through the space stations. Thanks to a quick trip to the forums (which are, of course, filled with ranty geeks), I was able to program a key to do just that.

Lastly, the graphics are beautiful. Now, when I started playing the game, I was playing on a gaming PC with a 47" LED TV. I pumped the graphics up, and they were STUNNING. I'm not just saying stunning for an MMO, they are comparable to any console game. Luckily, if you drop all of the graphics settings, you can still play the game on a crappy system like my laptop, which is all I have now.

So, my thoughts are that, while the game can get a bit repetitive, it is a hell of a lot of fun if you're really into Star Trek. If you're not, you might not like it as much. A lot of the fun comes from knowing the Star Trek universe. I love it, but I've also been away from the game for a few months and I really haven't missed it. So, I guess you could say it's not a "must have", but it's still great fun.

I have been wanting to play this game but I do not have the money to do monthly payments. The game itself is only like 20 to 30 bucks depending on the version you buy. But when it comes down to monthly fees it makes it a bit harder.
