You can forget about the game as its widely perceived as a flop among gaming circles. By the time a 2nd season begins that game will be a wasteland. If things stay this way I would be shocked if this show gets a third season.
Meh, I heard the same stuff about Star Trek Online and its been going strong for 3 years now.
You don't really know how well a MMO is doing unless you can go in there and count the number a players playing over a 24 hour period and sometimes all it takes is a good new update to draw people back and get new players. Especially if it majorly improves the game
Not to mention if the competition sucks enough people will go back.
So I would right the game off just yet.
Plus the show is getting into the time of the year when there isn't anything else on.
I don't think you can compare this to Star Trek or Star Wars because of the name recognition. There are people who will play Star Trek regardless of the quality of the game.
There is no doubt that they recovered from a TERRIBLE launch and actually turned the game into something that's fun and playable. Of course going FTP did it wonders.
This game gets no such built in fan base. Can it recover? Sure- Will it recover? Possibly- It has no monthly sub right? I wish it well- not for the game as I could give a damn but would like it to help the show.
As to the show- Has potential but I can't put a finger on why it hasn't hooked me yet. Maybe some of the writing has been a bit weak.
