The preamble – yep, that one … "Space, the final frontier …" – is expected but not heard, though the theme music certainly is. It begins with the orchestration that keyed in the television show four decades back, and then changes to embrace so much more that belongs to the Star Trek legacy.
Usually, a game shows what it purports to have with the barest of tastes known as a tutorial, and Star Trek Online is no different. The flavors are there, but just in minimal quantities. It's like the scent of rich chocolate that dances across the tongue, but is more of a tease than a true taste.
