Those who are feeling jaded or confused by Eve's extremely difficult learning curve may find themselves enjoying Star Trek Online alot. It presents a refreshing but somewhat rough new universe to play in. There is definitely room for expansion and improvement, and I would imagine Cryptic will be hot on their heels to iron out any shortcomings and make this an excellent addition to the MMO scene. Had it been released a bit more polished I would have awarded it a 9. I'm looking forward though to seeing what Cryptic does with the franchise, as it looks very promising. Overall if your looking for a refreshing different MMO to others, Star Trek Online is definitely worth a try.
