Good luck to you, my comrades

I think your tales will influence me more towards getting this game (and updating laptop to be able to play it).

Re: Star Trek: Online

Played it for a couple hours last night, and, i dunno. The on-planet stuff was kinda boring, and the ship missions were hit or miss. Could take a lot of time just crusing around, as well.

Didn't play long enough to do many upgrades, but would have liked to figure out how to add additional crew, wander inside my ship, or upgrade said ship to something cooler. I don't really care for the MMO format, but if it was a single-player, mission-oriented game, I'd probably at least give it a shot. Paying for the game, plus monthly fees to keep playing, means I'll probably skip it. Maybe if there's a free demo/trial period eventually, I can try longer and see if it hooks me more, but the first couple hours led me to think I'd get bored, or have to play it a LOT to justify playing it at all...

So with a few days left, is anyone sticking around for the final game?
Been in since closed beta back on 10/29/09 - and what the Dev team has done in that short time hs been noting short of amazing (imo). They work pretty fast; but yeah, got a DDE preorder; the Lifetime sub, and am just waiting for the game to open officially. I've kinda tapered off playing it as once the game officially starts, this will be the 6th time I leveled from scratch, and each time I keep finding gear and BO layouts I want to keep - so that gets annoying.

I have a cruiser and Escort all well decked out currently but come Friday, I get to start again. I'm still beciding If I do want to start a character, or wait for launch day as the Joined Trill and Freed Borg PC from the Lifetime subscription won't be avaialble until launch day

But, been playing MMOs since EverQuest in 1999; and happy to finally see a good space-based science fiction based game in a setting I enjoy a lot (Yers, EVE Online is space-based too - but too bare and too PvP oriented for my tastes - and I played it for nearly a year).

Jumped in today for a little bit and it seemed the Borg were invading the Earth Spacedock. Fun stuff!

Re: Star Trek: Online

Noname Given, I've been in for Open Beta, and just the updates to the UI and the game balancing that I saw in two weeks was pretty impressive for a company that was obviously working under pressure considering they got a lot more beta invites used than they were expecting and had to race to get more servers up to handle the load.

I know that fans of other MMOs or ultra demanding Trek fans were expecting a lot more from this game right out of the gate, but from playing beta it's met my expectations and I can't wait to get back in for real in head start and to pick up my box and cd and manual from Target next week.

Judging from how Cryptic handled patching during OP, I can't wait to see how quickly they start sneaking in expansions once they get the ball rolling after launch.

Yeah, I saw them in sector space, but I was trying to finish one last mission before OP ended...

I tried to engage the some borg spheres but obviously my Miranda wasn't ready for that kind of challenge. Took them about 3 seconds to blow me to pieces and I didn't even scratch their shields.

Re: Star Trek: Online

So is there going to be an official TrekBBS server where everyone here plays? Or is everyone going to select different servers?

Same here. I also tried fighting the borg drones on Earth spacedock but they kicked my ass too. It was kind of annoying.

Kind of makes you wish the Voyager Borg back, doesn`t it?
The ones you could finish of with a single torp.
