Totally turned off by the trailer. It's about as un-Trek like as you can get. D: Roddenberry is spinning in his orbit.

Is that it? Flying around in Fed ships and shooting?

Don't see that beating EVE, ever.

Yeah. They're going to fail hard if they're going to try to be an EVE clone and it's not like idea of peaceful exploration and inter-species relations has the makings of being a good MMORPG either.

Oh well. *rolls up a Red Shirt*

:/ Doc is right. If it is just ship piloting (which I had no idea this was even being released) Eve will hardly release it's white-knuckle grip on the genre.

I was actually hoping it'd be something different, but it does appear to be trying to compete with Eve...which it will most likely fail at. Personally, not interested.

I know a few of you are playing/played this. How is it? Is it worth picking up?

Only if you like pew pew in space with ships. There are away missions and stuff, but the majority of gameplay is flying around in your ship, shooting things. And I recall you weren't too keen on that.

Also, I played the beta, and I just don't see the value of paying for the game before paying for a subscription in this case.

Yeah, that's what I thought. If the emphasis was more on the exploration and less on the pew pew I might give it a try. Trek was never really about the pew pew anyway.

For now I'll stick to DDO and FFXI.

Thanks.

Been playing this a bit. It's all free to play now, free download, and no subs. They are doing the store thing, want a cool space ship, or want to look like Seven of Nine, you pay for it. Been enjoying it so far, soloing everything except the Borg encounters. Up to Captain now (level 31) and I could get a Next Generation Enterprise ship but went for a slightly different look.

It's a bunch of flying in your spaceship, some away missions and sending your lowbie crew out on missions. Kinda fun, haven't tried PvP yet and crafting material prices are insane.
