Just some more Star Trek Online, been binge playing it quite a bit.

Finally got myself a Galaxy class that can go up against the Borg sector encounters





I would recommend playing STO if you are a Trek fan. The space combat is really great, the only downside is the hours of grinding you have to do.

I played it non-stop for about a week one time, then got tired of it and never played it again.

I tried it when they went Free To Play. First sign of trouble was when I discovered the obligatory first-level rat-grinding was....fighting Borg? Are you kidding me? The Borg are the ultimate badasses. Who's the high level boss then, giant tribbles? My second sign of trouble was the vendors in the starbase. Vendors charging money for stuff. Never mind replicators and the post-scarcity abandonment of money in the canon. That's when my "this is not Trek" muscle clenched and I pulled the EJECT handle.

Which is sad, because I was SO in the mood to play in the Trek universe. I'd been watching their development blog with bated breath. Then, when the developers announced they weren't going to include the promised multi-crew starship play, it was a big blow to me. It's why I waited until they went F2P to try the game.

That said, I'm not saying the game isn't fun or that it's bad. If people enjoy it, more power to them. It just didn't promise the Trek experience I'd been hoping for.

Star Trek and an MMO with a story. The Borg in the sector parts really are some of the hardest enemies.

I am sure there are others, but the hardest I have faced was the Crystalline Entity. Back when the game came out the Crystalline entity used to roam around sector space but they removed that apparently a long time ago. Haven't found where it is now but I plan to try to eventually.

Actually that isn't against Trek lore. Plenty of species have currency and the Federation as a whole has currency for dealing with worlds who aren't part of the Federation. The game is an MMO, which means it needs an economy, so you can't just let everyone have access to things for free, you need to level and "earn" those things.

You do have access to a replicator to make things you might need, haven't touched it though so wouldn't know what can be done with it entirely.

A real Trek experience would be impossibly hard to do right for an MMO. The best game I have seen for a Trek ship experience was Bridge Commander but other than that there haven't really been many good ones. The Trek universe isn't about combat and fighting but that is what most people play games for. The exploration, scientific, and political parts of STO are really badly done.

A proper Trek game could probably be built off of SpaceEngine in the future if an SDK is ever released. I highly doubt you could do it right in multiplayer though.

I don't think that anything "officially" Star Trek has been truly great since DS9. Voyager, Enterprise, JJ Trek, STO, none of it lives up to what Trek used to be.

I am secretly hoping they bring back Enterprise on Netflix though....I so want to see the Romulan War. Plus the show got really good at the end.

I have no problem with someone starting a thread for a game. I do have a problem when the first post of that thread is only a couple sentences and a link. This lack of quality does not qualify as new thread material so I merged your thread with the current general video games thread. You are welcome to make a thread when you are willing to put effort into it, otherwise discuss it here.

Just got FTL: Faster Than Light.

It's great, though quite different from what I thought. It seems quite short,
but with many ways to approach it.

I like the rogue-like-aspect of it, though it's much more forgiving
and easier to learn than most rogue-like games I've played.

Does anyone else here play it?
