Product Description

Product Description

Escape to the immersive multiplayer Star Trek universe in Star Trek Online. Captain your own customized ship, forge your allegiance and wage battle with your own customized crew ‐ across strange new worlds and into the deepest reaches of the final frontier. Set 30 years after Star Trek Nemesis, the universe is a much more dangerous place. The Klingons and Federation are on the verge of all out war.

YOU ARE THE CAPTAIN:

Every player will begin the game as “captain” of a starship. You are the pilot in space, and the hero on the away team. Build your bridge crew from recruited and created characters. Define abilities and personalities to determine the tactics and strengths of your party. Build reputation and influence as you grow from a lieutenant to an admiral of Starfleet! Higher rank enables more powerful ships, a larger crew and new abilities.

ABOVE AND BELOW:

Navigate your starship through the known and unknown regions of the galaxy. Explore undiscovered regions of space, full of solar phenomena, strange alien planets and bizarre species. Discover strange new worlds, and beam down with your away teams to alien planets. Your bridge officers will affect your space and planetside game – your science officer may increase ship speed in space, and be a great diplomat on the surface.

BELOVED UNIVERSE:

Become an officer in the Klingon Military or the Federation's Starfleet and adventure in the future of the Star Trek Universe. Interact with classic locations of Trek history –from the wormhole of Deep Space Nine to the Guardian at the End of the Universe. Recruit or battle heroes from classic star trek species – logical Vulcans, diabolical Romulans, shifty Ferengi and many more!

ULTIMATE DISCOVERY:

Command a Klingon or Federation ship across a limitless galaxy. Discover, explore and develop your crew in an endless range of encounters. Randomly generated quadrants give players unlimited opportunities (In addition to “established” systems).

Box Contains

Star Trek Online T-Shirt
Map of the Universe
5 Postcards
In game DLC uniform
30 days inclusive playtime

People will hate on this game, for it's name and for the fact that it stands in the very tall shadow of WoW. That being said WoW doesn't have exclusive rights on fun. The Open beta ran like a beta, many problems. But they were being fixed impressively, something even more impressive though was the amount of feedback cryptic appeared to be responding to. While patching and fixing this game they are already addressing gripes and balance problems players dont like, they seem at this time to have a vested interest in this game. Thats a good thing no matter your viewpoint.

Over the short course of an open beta I have seen patch after patch making this game better and better and hopefully in full swing come launch day, I can tell you all the usual things about customisation. But you will hear that again and again.

What I will tell you is this: Today I took a trip to deep space nine, on my return to earth I had to make sure peace was still intact at a federation settlement. After that I had to deal with the Orion syndicate who were commiting piracy on a federation outpost. I fought 5 squadrons in a weird but pleasing mix of mmo buffs, and pure action.
To add to all that pure STAR TREK action: While fighting these ships I was waiting for my jamming sensors to recharge, concentrating my fire on one of the enemies shields so I could take down and launch a high yield photon torpedo While my bridge officer enabled the tractor beam to fire yet more accurately at the now held target. However other ships are firing on my rear shield. So i boost power to rear shields. I pick off a few enemy but my shields aren't good, So I call an emergency engineering team who help fix the problem while i divert main power to shields rather than the standard "balanced" power mode.

I have given this game a good few months, with the first several weeks where I played every day. The ground combats during this time were very boring, with myself half the time not even looking at the screen white I pressed buttons 1 and 2 to fire weapons while watching tv.

It is highly repetitive and more thought should have gone into the ground assaults or just remove them entirely. Space combat while marginally better was not enough of a draw to justify the monthly subscription. The graphics were wonderful in places however the missions were a joke and with no constant story line, the missions were disjointed and again repetitive. The explore clusters especially is in dire need of revamping ... i.e. explore a planet, look at 3 plants, rocks, trees etc and beam back or the give such a thing to aid a planet or even kill ships then beam down for yet another boring ground assault.

This is not to mention the rolling out of the game in the first few weeks with alot of bugs which just frustrated the eager fans that were waiting to get their fantastic few star ships to find out for instance your a federation ship being fired upon by other feds in pvp for the duration of that mission!

After achieving rear admiral I couldnt even find any missions to complete, the ship was fun to fly (with notable flaws which we can come across) but when you dont have anywhere to fly to then it gets annoying fast.

As to the ships, stunning designs, absolutely stunning. But the equipment bar was another matter - the differentiation between the classes was in my option not enough, (i.e. specific armour for tactical, science with high tech options and cruiser with the ability to create their own items - as they are a city in space in effect).

I've been on the Beta, Open Beta, Like with any new game to be released bugs need to be sorted out the person who gave this the one star and saying its not worth it, is far from wrong. The fixes they have rolled out with the help of many thousands increased the game playability, it has got a few more kinks to sort but considering this is a new game for the trek genre they have pulled this one out of the hat very nicely, if nimoy and quinto are giving support to the franchise its saying something, if they didnt believe in the concept and its ideals they would not have given its support. Cryptic are doing a fantaaastic job doing this game, I'm one of the many who are backing this game.

Buy it and try it make your own choice!

Few games benefit as much as this one from coming to it with no expectations, though with such a famous name on the front of the box, is that possible? How many people have come to this just for a MMORPG experience, rather than because it's Star Trek?

If you're the latter, then there's a lot to initially enjoy, with immediate immersion in a very familiar world where every shape and sound is one from telly and film. However, this can wear off quickly. There's something unsatisfying (to this reviewer anyway) in starting off in charge of a ship (the career progression is not exactly difficult), and in having cyphers of bridge officers who are simply there to provide a button to press during ship combats, or to wordlessly mill round during the away missions. These are the people you want to talk to and interact with, your trusted team across the stars, but instead they don't even come with you to the Starbase when you get home. So much of the Trek universe is about the characters, and there's simply none of it here.

It also doesn't take long for the limits of the mission formats to become obvious. Each one is simply a variation of "go to a planet, scan 5 objects" and "go to a system, scan 5 objects" and "go to a base and scan 5 objects" intermingled with some (admittedly fun) shooting matches. It's another area where you feel the lack of actual personalities as there's never any chance to be *clever* or peaceable with the solutions. It promotes a very combatitive game which simply doesn't feel like Trek. And the formulaic nature means that you quickly tire of missions, even though you need them for promotions. I gave up on this long before achieving Captaincy.
