    I've been a trekkie since i was 8 years old, and this game is probably the worst example of a Star Trek game i've ever played.

    Get told what to do, go there, kill things, mission accomplished.

    Get told something different, go tehre again, kill things, mission accomplished.

    Take away the officer's short explaination of the mission and you're essentially just repeating exactly the same missions over and over again non stop, only with different ships.

    the story missions are cool, the expo missions are boring as hell, but you can get good loot doing them so i dont expect them to be great just if they were less buggy.

    its an ok game but it is not great i mean you can lots of fun until you hit the end and you need a great flee that does the raids does pvp and has fun.

    but next month it is lifting the cap and adding a new tier of ships so they should add more pve content especially for klingons.

    game should keep the casual player busy for months, hardcore player depends how much you get into raids and pvp.


    why i recommended against the lifetime sub. with guild wars 2 and especially star wars the old republic out in a year or so i mean there is no way a lifetime sub pays off unless you play for 2 years straight or something.

    Join a great fleet, and the game is even more fun! I used to play solo, but since joining my fleet in March, I will never play solo again. :)

    After reading this thread I'm considering getting this. Could do with another MMO untill GW2 is released and I'm a fan of StarTrek so seems right up my street.

    I'll download the demo later and see what I think of it.

    Is joining a fleet like joining a guild or like joining a temporary group to do certain missions?

    fleet is like a guild or corporation in other games. you can have 100s in a fleet, not sure what the cap is. but the community is much better overall in this game vs some other mmos most people seem generally friendly and fairly cool.

    Thanks for the quick reply cerebus :)

    I'm on the main site now looking at screens and stuff, liking so far. I read in this thread that the demo doesn't really do the game much justice but it should give me a general feel for the game.

    My gut feeling tells me I will be picking this up at the weekend :)

    for objective quests you can use your tricorder to scan for them. one change i suggested from beta, go me. but ti will pick up the nearest thing to you and point the way, can be a objective or it can be an scanny anolomony thing, whatever you happen to be closest to at the time.

    shield ui has been a gripe since beta dunno why they never added a option to turn it off lots of people have requested it.

    bridge combat will never happen its just to much a change to add the tactical displays and different stations you would need to have the info you need handy from bridge view. they had said they are going to add to the amount of stuff you can do on your ship, lest they were making claims to that in beta but dunno where that all is.

    starbase 24 mission is pretty hard, i did it in beta and was way easy cause things did not respawn even at launch they did not now things on the stations respawn so fast if you do not kill and move quickly it is impossible, still managed to do it with the npc crew, but is very difficult now days.

    think my in game handle goes something like cerebus@skywolf23 but not 100% sure i dont friend myself very often lol, i will have to look later tonight.

    Nice screenshots. Wish it looked that good for me when I played the demo. Still want this game so bad though.

    If your talking about those 3D shield rings around the ship then yes they can be disabled from the options menu.
    I think its even one of the options on the first page of it.

    Season 2 is going to be a blast though.
    Federation is getting a lot more non-combat content such as first contact and diplomatic missions.
    They also made scanning more intersting by building in a small minigame into it.

    They are also adding a few new costume options of the Orion species on the klingon side.

    I can't find a Trial on the STO website, is it Buddy Key only?

    Thinking of buying it but just wondered.
