I dunno whether I wanna play this or Stargate online.
Simple solution, play Star Wars: Old Republic instead. Problem solved!

The first two images of that new Klingon ship gave me a Battlestar vibe. The side profile also looks a lot like a Klingonised Danube class (though it would be a lot bigger). So we're going to have carriers and fighters in the game it seems.

Is it ironic that I wish Online had more established classes (Steamrunner, Sabre, Galaxy, Ambassador, etc etc) while being disappointed that the designs of the new classes are too derivative and uninspired?
No Galaxy???? No Ambassador??? Say it ain't so!

Re: Star Trek: Online

as a Star Trek fan that also plays World of Warcraft religiously, im kinda disappointed in the direction they are taking this MMORPG. personally, i hate the fact that they are going to a time period that was never covered by any Star Trek story. basically they are just using a familar setting, but creating their own story. thats not what i want out of my cup of Star Trek games.

personally, i would have preferred that the game start just after the events of the launch of the Enterprise-B. there is a relative peace to the galaxy. the factions can still be Federation vs Klingon cause im sure there were still a few boarder skirmishes going on there (much like vanilla-WoWs story between the horde and alliance).

big stories can be madeup there to give epic goals. the story can then work its way up to the first expansion pack.... the Battle of Narendra III and the loss of the Enterprise C. this expansion pack can include a new playable faction in the Romulans (think of it as the Death Knight Hero class where new characters start at a higher level). The federation and klingons never truely merged anyway but they start to work a little more together.

that can lead up to the biggest and probably most signifcant story in ST - Best of Both Worlds. another expansion pack includes the invasion of the borg as a week long universe event (imagine the klingons and romulans sending help to wolf 359). the rest of the expansion plays out with stories similar to TNG episodes, the founding of DS9 and the wormhole.

next expansion brings in the dominion war and so on....

thats how id like to see this game played out.




but ill more then likely still pick this one up anyway

Well, we don't know yet for sure, but all the screenshots we've had of Starfleet vessels have refitted Akiras and Mirandas, along with uninspired new classes. However, I'm willing to bet that we won't have many of the previously established classes this time around.

Well the Constitution, Ambassador, Defiant, Prometheus, Saber and Steamrunner class starships have been mentioned by the developers and the Galaxy class was clearly visible in the first trailer released back in August 2008, for example: http://www.sto-zone.net/cryptic/scre...10-2008/39.png

So you hate that they are going to a time period not covered on screen...yet you want them to set it in a different time period not covered on screen.

Poor game designers, they just can't win.

Worse, his version would have them set it in a time period where overall player actions won't matter since the future of the galaxy has already been determined onscreen. With what the designers are doing now, they can still surprise us with future events.

In any case, I'm still going to be getting this game, regardless if it's PC or Xbox. Anyone else thinking of joing a TrekBBS Fleet or whatever they're called in this game when the time comes?

I should hope there are more Galaxies around. I just bought the E-D from Art Asylum, and I need that baby next to my computer!

Re: Star Trek: Online

Got to admit I've gone from being excited to lukewarm on the project the more I hear, I just think another typical MMO, which is all talk. The idea of MMO's are brilliant I just cannot find one that I like I so want to like this.

The screenshot of the galaxies and spheres looks nice.
The lighting was nicely done (although I do think it could use more work on planets)

Re: Star Trek: Online

I hope that the Excelsior makes it into the game, I've always preferred it over the Miranda and given we've seen the centaur in the game, maybe we'll see the Excelsior as well. Maybe the Excelsior will be the basis and the Centaur a variant you can modify the ship to.
