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.
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!
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).

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.Read more ›
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).Read more ›
If you like Sci-fi space battles or you're a big Star Trek fan I'd recommend you get this game!!!
Buy it and try it make your own choice!
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.Read more ›
