Boomtown writes: "Star Trek games have had mixed fortunes. Some have been excellent (like my personal favourite Birth of the Federation) some have been... well... awful and most have been in the grey middle zone of games that neither shine nor fall to the ground completely. However, while the verdict is yet to be cast of Star Trek Online (release in early 2010), it's clear that few Star Trek games have been this ambitious.
Star Trek Online lets you command your own ship - in a universe full of other Star Trek captains. A universe, we might add, filled to the brink with Star Trek details. Craig Zinkievich, the Executive producer for Star Trek Online, told us all about it."
