I'm all for this game, especially since GW2 has been delayed yet again and playing various free MMORPGs only holds my attention for so long before I get bored (grinding gets old and that's all the free ones seem to be).

If I'm gonna pay to play another MMO, it'll be this one.
Yup. As good as I'm sure Guild Wars 2 will be, I spent way too much time in GW1, and I feel STO's community will be far superior.

GW ruined fantasy themed games for me for now, I want space this time.

I would place a bet on never. They will have to redesign it for NuTrek now.
This is clarified (with pictures) here:

Probably undesirables from TrekBBS.
JK of course. If I were you, you might want to start a thread with that question in "General Trek", you'll probably find some old fellow posters quicker that way.

Star Trek Online In-Depth Interview & new screenshots

Star Trek Online In-Depth Interview
6/19/2009
http://www.1up.com/do/previewPage?cId=3174863

Exclusive screenshots and a chat with Cryptic's executive producer Craig Zinkievich
We have a fairly aggressive and solid timeline we're working towards, but we haven't announced any dates or started taking closed beta applications yet.
from this screenshot:

This game is no SW:TOR . check out this video with some gameplay in it.

It just doesn't compare graphics-wise
oh well...

Re: Star Trek: Online

Graphic wise it doesn't compare?
I would argue they both compare equally at this point and both could have been better actually.
Reducing the ambient lighting would likely help out a bit in avoiding too much exposure while increasing somewhat the realism.
The skin textures on the characters look too plain in my opinion on Trek online.
I know they want to avoid complexities and reduce hardware demands as it's gonna be an MMO, but they can do it either way through better coding.

The phaser rifles look like props from a cheap 70s Star Wars ripoff movie.

...just sayin'.

Re: Star Trek: Online

This stuff seems interesting... Garak as leader of Cardassia? Wow.

2 images from a planet surface structure? Looks like a temple

This looks like Ba'ku village in 'Star Trek: Insurrection'.
A small village an alien planet: home to the Ba'ku.
compare with the memory alpha photo from the film.

What do you guys think?
Could also be Bajoran.
Either way it is in the new game as it was just added as a screenshot.

movement

Well, no 3D movement in STO. Is Basically just 2.5 D (Think Submarine Warfare).

Instead of creating space movement, they have make a car game:
* You go forward = Driving down the road
* You turn, right/left = turning left or right on a curve
* You go up/down = Driving up the ramp/down the ramp.
Thats It. That's Cryptics SPACE MOVEMENT. There is no 'looping back' to pursue an enemy. Instead you have to turn and chase it like you are driving a cop car.
There is no 'rolling over' as you fly buy your friends or a space station.
Approaching DS9 will be like taking a Sail boat to the docks.

Damn, it's Legacy flight controls all over again

Hopefully they won't be as bad to control in this style.

I'm still hopeful but this, along with non-player character bridge crew, is disappointing.
