    Looking rather delicious

    I've never played an MMO before. The Star Trek fan in me might give me the final push I need to give one a try.

    Oh? I've heard of WoW addiction... I hope I don't get "the Ick" too. :) I'm really looking forward it to though. If only to shout Klingon insults at people that understand them. :))

    Hahaha I hadn't thought of that. So will we see the Klingon faction with the most players purely as the entire trek population will be there typing away in Klingon? Imagine the uproar if Cryptic get some of the translation wrong (or will the universal translator work all the time?)

    It's set 30 years after the events in Nemesis

    Of course not. People live to well over 150 in the Federation. If anything Picard would be about 80-odd and Riker 70-odd. Probably admirals or retired.

    It's Star Trek. It's completely impossible for it to sound cool.

    I'm not sure how Star Trek will translate into an MMO - it's all about groups of people being nice and stuff, which I can't see working in the free-for-all environment of an MMO. How would ranks work for example? Suppose I'm a Captain and I tell one of my subordinates to do something. In the show, they'd give an "aye-aye" and do it. But another player is surely just going to tell me to shove my orders up my arse...

    All players are ship captains with their own AI crew members, players refusing to follow orders won't be an issue.

    Ah, right.

    Sounds... I dunno. I'll reserve judgement but it sounds too much like a management/strategy game.

    Sounds a bit like a real time MMO of Starfleet Command. Whcih now I've written it sounds bloddy awesome, I love Starfleet Command! Upgradable ships, customisable crews that gain experience, exploring space... it certainly has potential. Time will tell. As would the Ferengi for the right cash, but I spent my last bar o' latinum on some creamy Cheddar.

    Eve shows that space combat is perfectly doable, if highly complicated.

    Yeah, that'd be awesome, or MMO Bridge Commander.
    Both my favorite Star Trek games.

    Just curious, what would people like to see in STO, now there's a few details here and there (plenty on the official site) to suggest what it'll be like?

    Especially the Eve players, is there anything that'd steal you away, assuming you're not a Trekkie like me that'd have bought and forced enjoyment out of Turning Point if it'd been Trek)? It probably won't have the hardcore depth, but is that necesarily a good thing?

    Too many question marks there. Sorry. I'm hoping for a robust crafting system, something that's usually secondary to me. I'd love to be able to research and construct super phaser arrays and trade them with other Starfleet captains, and make that trading my main focus.

    I would've done that for Eve, but I think learning all the terminology again kept me from doing that. At least with Trek, I know what most of the things mean already, so I can get started quicker.

    I hope they stay well clear of the Dungeon running formula.

    I want more EVE and less WoW. I dont want to get ' Deflector dish of the tiger ' as a reward for beaming up 15 marooned ferengi to replace my slightly dated ' Tarnished Deflector Dish'.

    I would like a more free-form player driven environment. The ability to not only improve the technology and efficiency of my ship but also the competence of my ships crew.

    I would like to be a Ferengi.

    I would like to see Deanna Troy's tits.

    I think it's possible ther will be slight dungeon running, but I can't see it being a mandatory thing thanks to transporters and the focus on ships. At least I hope not. I also agree getting stuff like 'Deflector dish of the tiger' would suck. I'm sure it'll be upgradable, but you can just quantify that.

    The ships themselves are fairly freeform and customisable. From interviews, it's claer it'll be a WAR-ish situation - a Chaos Chosen always looks like a Chaos Chosen, even if he does have a special armour. The ships are always claerly of a specific class, but you could still customise the look.

    Ferengi wil be in it. Deanna Troi's tits will most likely not, or at least be a Collectors Edition unlockable.

    I know the crew rank up and get upgraded, which I'm looking forward to. I like a little grninding in an MMO. Not a lot though, just a bit that I can do to drive my crew ahead of other players, for the sake of PvP, should I play it. I hope there isn't too much focus on it though, isn't very Trekish.

    Would be nice to have some space combat. If I remember correctly there will be a special area were you can pvp.

    Only problem with MMO's based on media is that everyone just names themselves after the characters.

    I bet you there will be thousands of "Picard42746782"s and "Cpt S1sk0"s walking around.

    The naming policy will almost certainly ban such things, probably numbers won't be allowed for a start, Cryptic do have some experience of having to control player names after people tried to use copyrighted ones in CoH.

    I'm looking forward to this, if it's done right. Having my own ship and crew and hopefully doing things other than "collect 10 Tribble pelts" or "delivery this box of something someone could have replicated themselves to the other side of the Alpha Quadrant".

    A space combat element similar to Starfleet Command, as DFawkes suggested earlier, would be excellent.

    So will the crew be people you control, or do you hire regular players, like yourself, as your crew?

    EDIT: Sorry! My answer was at the top of the page.

    I think that one would almost certainly not get through the naming process! :-P
