    Ok so, I know what you're thinking. STO? NO WAY!

    I thought the same thing a couple of weeks ago but on a 'no current MMO' jonesing fit I gave the game a shot. And I'm very glad I did.

    If you're a Trekkie and looking for a new game to play, you owe it to yourself to give it a shot. After all, it's free! It's one of the better F2P models I've seen out there. :)

    Things I love about the game so far:

    • Very deep character/officer customization (the best I've seen besides APB)
    • Different systems like Tribble breeding, crafting and assignments
    • Ship combat is very fun
    • Ship customization is fun trying out different gear/tactics
    • PvP is a blast, especially the larger battles

    Give it a shot and see what you think!

    I like to pop into this and their other game, Champions Online, from time to time for a bit of fun.

    I am very pleased to have a lifetime with STO and currently while I can't play every day or even for sure once a week I do try to log in for 15 minutes and set up my Duty Officer Missions.

    I've managed to level my Engineer from 13 to 21 just doing duty officer missions over about 2-3 weeks.

    As a non trekie, I can say this game is good for those who just like space. Its heavily star treck but they did a good job in keeping the missions from feeling silly and repetive like other MMO's. Heck I still miss Star Wars Galaxies but STO is a damn good substitute, heck their ground combat is better then SWG's was lol.

    I'm enjoying this game. Started it while I wait for Neverwinter to go live.
