Free-to-play Star Trek Online available today for current and former subscribers

Freem' me up Scotty.

Star Trek Online, Cryptic Studios' 2010 MMO, joins the freemium gold-rush on 17th January - but current and lapsed subscribers can join the new fleet as of today.

Full details about what you get - and more importantly what you don't get - as part of the new payment model can be found over at Cryptic's comprehensive FAQ.

Eurogamer's Oli Welsh reviewed the game at launch and awarded a 6/10, highlighting the need to develop the game's crafting, looting and Klingon faction.

"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," he concluded.

"It makes its license a blessing, not a burden, but it's a blessing this rickety voyage into the unknown badly needs."

How boldly has the game gone since release? We'll have a re-review of Star Trek Online towards the end of this month.

Early access begins today for current and lapsed subscribers.
