Star Trek Online confirmed

Destructoid writes: "Awhile back, we showed you a timer on developer Cryptic's official page that was a bit suspicious in origin. The natural conjecture that this timer would count down to an official announcement of Star Trek Online now appears to be true. WarCry recently found two different announcements of the game, which go quite a way to validate the revival of the once ill-fated game.

The first piece of evidence comes from the Star Trek Convention site. The announcement is painfully blunt, but if you look at the schedule for August 10 at 1:30 P.M. there is an event planned called 'Star Trek Online Revealed.' Apparently, when it comes to videogames, these guys really don't like to beat around the bush.

Another interesting tidbit comes from the Game Career Guide, where Cryptic Studios plastered an advertisement on page 42 that states they are hiring for positions. Notably, they claim to be "developer and publisher of...Champions Online and Star Trek Online." I think Cryptic may have killed the need for speculation on their timer already, unless it's for a Stargate MMO or something."

Do people still care about Star Trek?

After Voyager went off the air and Seven of Nine disappeared I was like "SEE YA!!!"

Enterprise was a decent show. Probably one of the coolest endings for one as well. Too short but at least fans did get an ending

It's funny this guy brings up Stargate as its been known about for months now. Sci fi channel has been talking about it nonstop during the show.

Was never really a big Voyager fan I did watch it they reused a lot of the same story arcs time travel, slip stream, the borg, thrown closer to home. Best aliens I like that were introduced in the series were the Hirogen would love to see the Klingons take them on in a war.

The big issue was it was hard to have any consistency as you knew they were not going to mysteriously get home and Villains had to be infrequent as they were going through their space and would in time be out of range of their influence. There was a plan for the ship to get home via a new technology early in a mid season and then have them go to and from the Delta Quadrant and Federation as the story needed but that was nixed. I think not showing what happened when they actually set foot on Earth was a huge issue. I am hoping Picard addresses it.

Knightofelemia874d ago

There were plans to show a few episodes of what happened to the Voyager crew once they came back to the Alpha Quadrant but that fell through. Voyager was ok but it's not TNG or DS9 those two series I liked Enterprise with Scott Bakula was good I could never get into the Captain Kirk Star Trek that was before my time.

DS9 was great. I have not been able to get into Discovery. I do not like the characters or stories. I do not expect Xmas lights but the fact that it is 10 years before Kirk yet the ship is so much more advanced even before they went into time has not worked for me. Mainly dislike the characters. Prodigy lost me at the first episode but Lower Decks has grown on me and I have liked Picard.
