Boldly Going Nowhere

Critical Gamer writes: I'm not sure what's wrong with me, but I've been spending some time protecting the galaxy recently. I've saved it from many a poorly scripted alien coated in so much prosthetic make-up that it makes them all blend together into roughly what you'd get if you put an Action Man in the microwave. Was that Xenophobic? I'm a disgrace to the Federation.

I'm enjoying Star Trek online it's a lot of fun, there are some problems but I'm hopefully of them being iron out

I was really interested in this game, but I'm slightly put off by some of the people who would populate it. Who can resist exploring the Trek universe though!

scruffy_bear5233d ago

I'm also interested in it but not sure seems to be a few to many problems with the game :(

Cryptic need to develop their games more before releasing them, this and Champions both seem a bit malnourished.

maxcer5231d ago (Edited 5231d ago )

agreed, this game needed another few months of development to flesh out the game. but this is the youngest MMO i have played. WoW and FFXI had been around for years before i started playing them, so maybe in half a years time it will be better. Hell im already at Commander7 and alot of players are already at rearAdmiral and complaining about the lack of content. oh well, 30free days is enough time to get to end game and quit before the Sub kicks in.

...and I can tell you right now that it isn't complete. The Federation faction is no more bugged than any other launch time MMO, but the Klingon faction is a joke.

It just echoes what everyone was saying during beta, even with the vast changes in the patches it still wasn't ready for release and everyone knew it.

Janeway Comes To Star Trek Online: Shadow’s Advance

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.

Garethvk877d ago

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.

Knightofelemia877d 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.

Garethvk877d ago

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.
