    Perspective, I think - it looks to me like the corridor ended in a turbolift shaft short of the windows.

    The closer we get to release, the more excited I get!

    It occurs to me that as much as I like video games and Trek, this will be the first Trek video game I ever play! I'd love it if Paramount made a game set in the TNG/DS9 era and made it an open galaxy sandbox style action RPG. I know it sounds like Mass Effect, but I'd want it done more in the line of the TNG episode "The Lower Decks" where you could make your own Lieutenant and name him and choose your landing party, but all of the crew we knew would be NPCs and give orders/missions. That would be awesome!!

    The graphics could be a lot better though, they're trying way too hard to make it look like the movies.

    It would be odd if they didn't. The only problem I have with the graphics is the odd low quality/vibrance textures they're using.

    Welcome to the last gasping hurrah of the outdated PS3 and 360.

    I don't even think it's a console problem, it's an art asset/build problem. Mass Effect 2 and 3 showed you could do some pretty intense environmental lighting, coloring, and contrast on consoles (along with all sorts of other games), but this just looks unfinished or hit with TV lighting everywhere.

    Or are we all just confused because there's less lens flare, and that's what the movie should've looked like? ;)

    Allow me to clarify, they try to make it look like the movie but they tried too hard, the lens flares look low quality and the camera shake is overly exaggerated.

    For all those US PC gamers who want to pre-order:
    @mtclemente @xbsaint There will be PC pre-order information for US soon, we're working out details.

    Here's hoping soon doesn't mean "3 or less weeks before release" (a very real fear due to Namco Bandai's involvement).

    The sooner the better for PC preordering.

    The game looks pretty cool and I'm considering buying it. I'm not digging the new Gorn, though. I'd prefer they used their appearance from ENT.

    Thanks FrontierTrek! Question: How is it already an "Award Winning Game?"
