We are getting closer to the next Enterprise.
Dev Diary 3 is out with more backstory and pictures of the draft ingame render.

Re: Star Trek: Online

I'm actually warming to it. I like the idea of the 2 necks. I like the 3D models they've made for it, but hated that render they tried out.

Only major problems I hope they address, the impulse engines and (what I'm assuming is) the shuttlebay doors are way too big IMO.

Doesn't look different enough from the Sovereign, IMO. From the front, yes, but not the other angles...

Loved Dev Diary 3! Can't wait to see more renders =D

As a side note, would anybody else LOVE to see a Trek MMO be picked up by someone willing to try to out-do Bioware?

Re: Star Trek: Online

Took about 2 minutes to run into my first Season 4 bug: Going from your ship down to the transporter room to grab a shuttlecraft is pretty cool, but from the perspective of trying to do the Delta Flyer mission, it doesn't see you as actually in a shuttlecraft, so you can't get the data samples you need. Pretty lame...

Considering we don't know how well BioWare does with an actual MMO (SWToR is in beta - but we'll see how it does once released. Honestly, in reading it - they are pretty much doing World of Warcraft woith a Star Wars skin; and in ready the 'features' also borrowed some ideas for STO already. I'm honestly dissapointed in two things pre-release thought - only one ship type per Class; and no real 3D space combat - which fopr a game based on Star W ars in imo ludicrous. Sorry, a 2D 'Rail Shooter' style mini-game that can be skipped if the player so chooses isn't a 'space combat system'.)

BioWare's has done some decent stand alone RPGs; but that may or may not translate well for their first MMO.

I think Cryptic's done fairly well in respecting the Star Trek IP and creating an MMO around it; given the elements of the IP that atre anything but MMO friendly. I honestly thought you couldn't do an MMO based on Star Trek that would retain a Star Trek feel because of the nature of the Star Trek Universe. But, (and IMO) Cryptic proved me wrong.

Some of the new features are cool, but I'm not exactly thrilled that they nerfed all the shields I spent so much time collecting.

Re: Star Trek: Online

Keep in mind also that the main thing BioWare is doing that is "special" is "spending over a hundred million dollars". Nobody will spend that much on a Star Trek MMO; as niche as Star Wars is, we're even more so.

Re: Star Trek: Online

I'm so-so about the new stuff. Ground combat is a lot tougher now, simple missions in the Delta Volanis cluster that used to be a nice easy thing are now much more difficult, taking a lot of the fun out of them. Glad they sped up the firing rate on ground weapons, but it's one step forward, two steps back if you ask me. Shooter mode is fun, though.

Also, they put a timer on my grenades so I can't throw all of the different types in my satchel one right after another.

Re: Star Trek: Online

DS9 revamp might be the thing most anticipated and might even be ingame very soon. As far as I know you can already see the new "old" wormhole on Tribble.
Haven't had a chance et to check it out myself, but seen pictures of it.
It may not look 100% canon perhaps, but it is muuuch closer then the poor substitute we have so far.
If as much effort goes into redesigning DS9 itself, I'll be a happy captain.

Re: Star Trek: Online

Starfleet Academy is up on test. They really outdid themselves. It's fantastic.
It's a full starbase minus the shipyard. It has holodecks that when entered give you access to your mission logs. Several memorials scattered around and lots of cadets in cadet uniforms. If you look at the Golded Gate bridge it even has shuttles flying in and out of that building from TMP. The place where Kirk and Xonn have their chat.
