Eurogamer: Star Trek Online Review

Star Trek Online is in a field of one in terms of its theme, its only real rival being the intimidatingly complex and political EVE Online, right at the other end of the accessibility scale. It's a unique offering then, in many ways a loveable one, and for Star Trek fans if not MMO gamers it's a great social experience. It makes its licence a blessing, not a burden, but it's a blessing this rickety voyage into the unknown badly needs.

this is the kind of score I was expecting, I didnt get to see much during beta because of lag issues, but what I did see was poor. This one reminds me of SWG, SO much potential but in the end poor execution. It baffles me because a well executed MMO based on the star wars or star trek universe is a potential gold mine, but they seem to give these projects to the wrong people.

There has been a lot of improvement over the beta.

Luckily they gave the next SW MMO to Bioware. I dont think it gets much better than that.

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.

Knightofelemia872d 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.
