About Star Trek Online
Become part of Star Trek®: The Star Trek universe will appear for the first time in a massively multiplayer online game. Everything from the elegant domes of Starfleet Academy to the ancient temples of Vulcan, from the towers of Qo’noS to the Fire Caves of Bajor, from the mysterious Mutara Nebula to the unexplored voids of deep space, all will be represented in stunning 3-D graphics. Immerse yourself in the future of the Trek universe as it moves into the 25th century: a time of shifting alliances and new discoveries.

Adventure in the Final Frontier: Explore strange new worlds, seek out new life and new civilizations in an expanding vast universe. Make contact with alien races, discover resources and uncover mysteries that will change the future of the Star Trek universe.

You Are the Captain: Command your own starship as a Federation Captain or a Klingon Warrior. Outfit it with the systems that you need to make your mark in the galaxy. Customize your ship as you see fit. Recruit, train and mold your crew into an elite force for exploration and combat.

Surface, Shipboard and Deep Space Adventures: Command your vessel in thrilling space battles, or beam down to planets with your away team for face-to-face confrontations. Missions will take you and your friends into space, planetside and even inside starships!

Powered by the Cryptic Engine, Star Trek® Online will be developed for both console and PC formats. With customizable ships and characters from the Klingon Empire and United Federation of Planets, ground, space and shipboard gameplay and unique options for player-generated content set in the Star Trek universe, Star Trek Online is the MMOG that allows you to boldly go where no one has gone before!
I haven't played a Star Trek game since the Sega Genesis. This looks interesting. I do wonder how the dynamic will be, lots of away team type quests ala Wow? ship battles like Eve Online?

Visually stunning... but then again, that's easy to do these days.

Droolworthy, but I have a sneaking suspicion that it won't be nearly as good as it could be. Chances are that most aspects of gameplay will lack depth, and it won't have the appeal to keep players for more than a few weeks, though I hope to be proven wrong.

I would find games like this and Pirates of the Burning Sea more interesting if you were allowed to get a group of friends together and crew 1 ship, exploring an open environment with tons of PVE content. Unfortunatley, my guess is that everyone will get there own ship (like in Pirates), and it will concentrate on PVP battles between factions (Federation, Klingon, Romulan, Borg...) for regions of space and the stations in them. I would be drawn to a Star Trek game that didn't hold your hand too much, allowing you to search for new planets, beam down, and explore them, with all the adventure that comes with. I'm not saying that would be an easy game to make, but man would it be fun. Here's to hope'n.

It would be cool if this is done right. Personally I couldnt get into Star Wars, or EVE. Ive been looking for any kind of space flight game that lets you use a high calibur joystick. Kind of a cross between Crimson Skies and AquaNox. I hate using a mouse for flight control. Any online game involving space has potential because. Has anyone seen the Star Gate game?

The only problem with multiple people on the crew for a single ship is that everyone is going to want to be the person who fires the weapons.

You might be interested in Jumpgate Evolution, it's supposed to be a much more action-based space combat MMO. I signed up for beta, but I haven't been accepted. I'm really eager to see if it's any good or not.

I really hope it's good but I'm skeptical. I have NEVER played a good Star Trek game.

Star Trek has never been about space fighting. The inner workings of the ship and the crew relationship is the big draw. I'd definitely rather see a normal crew member doing just 1 or 2 of the 100s of different positions on a ship or other people going solo ship or small crew ships.

I've always thought a ST game should be more strategy and diplomatic than action.
