Re: Star Trek: Online

Where do you go to customize your bridge officers? Somewhere on Earth starbase?

As far as I can see, same guy you see to customize your main character. He's at the Earth Starbase. Can't remember his name, and I can't look it up either since I have canceled my pre-order and deleted the beta client.

I don't suppose you still have the beta key. Or is that a one time use thing?

But if you still have could you please send it to me?

Re: Star Trek: Online

You can customize BO's and your main character at any of the large starbases, including Earth spacedock. It's fairly obvious where the right place is, as there's a giant glowing guy there for some reason.

Re: Star Trek: Online

Gizmodo is starting a multipart review.
up now is the basics as a quick intro.
Next time, on Star Trek..

We'll go more in depth about how the mission structure works, how leveling up/advancing in rank gets you more access to ships, and how closely the game stays to the established Trek "feel" that everyone is used to.
If you want more coverage, check out Kotaku's Star Trek Online page. We're going to mostly focus on how the game appeals to Star Trek fans, but if you want more info about how the game is as a game, Kotaku's got you covered.

Me, investigating the Hobus system.

In the background you can see the supernova remnant.

I like how the game manages to spin an interesting story out of the plot device that launched the Abramsverse.

There's also an explanation for the somewhat "wierd" science surrounding the event.
Although Romulus is 500 ly away, the shockwave was able to reach the planet in very short time because it traveled through subspace.

Not even Spock had anticipated that, which is why he arrived too late.

Re: Star Trek: Online

I can't see paying a monthly fee for this due to the ground game. It's just too much like City of Heroes/Champions Online but with a Star Trek skin. Space is OK, but the away team missions aren't fun. Even exploring on foot isn't fun, so I couldn't enjoy running around Deep Space 9.

Product keys are linked to the account. You can't create a new account and use my beta key, and I'm not giving someone my account.

Sorry.

Damn.

Sigh, looks like I will have to wait for the demo then.

Unless the game becomes a massive hit along the lines of World of Warcraft, there won't be a "demo". MMOs don't do demos, but limited trials and the game has to reach a certain level of success before that happens.

Re: Star Trek: Online

Eh, I gave it 10 minutes. I liked the character creation thing, unfortunately the gameplay didn't really grab me - I was hoping to command a starship from the word 'go', not play a clumsy third-person action game - and the framerate was atrocious, which rather effectively put me off from pushing further. Oh well.

They knicked my idea I came up with ages ago Hobus Star was the biggest star in the known galaxy and on a subspace breach that was ripped open when it when supernova so didn't create a black hole just a tear through space the energy went through that potentially could damage hundreds of worlds I watch too much SCI FI...

Re: Star Trek: Online

Overall I quite enjoyed the beta, once you get up the levels, you need to be a bit more tactical with combat and it all meshes rather well. Fleet actions are a lot of fun with massive numbers of ships taking each other on.

However the ground combat is poorly designed and the levels are very very boring.

That was always Cryptic's problem. The ground combat in both City of Heroes and Champions Online was poorly designed and leveling was extremely boring. STO just seems like a Star Trek skin overlaying those two games.
