That would've been an incredible start, shame, but it's still not bad for either game.

I think there's plenty of chance there will be loads of STO players tbh.

AndyA5253d ago

Lol, thought that sounded a bit optimistic.

Fyzzu5253d ago

Just a tad. Not that I'm happy to see it's false, or anything; I just didn't really believe that when I first saw it.

Malfurion5253d ago

It's still pretty impressive IMO. Champions is good fun, I just don't have time for it anymore. STO is insanely popular, still enjoying that one :)

A lot of those are going to be double or even triple accounts. I know I have 3 cryptic accounts and I haven't even bought either game from them.

Actual active accounts after the first 30 days are what counts. Not how many people buy the box or even box sales there are a percentage of them that will never be activated by game collectors and just plain old Star Trek memorabilia collectors that got it to add to the pile of trek junk in their basement and never have any intention of playing the game.

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.

Knightofelemia880d 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.
