    Anyone play Star Trek Online?

    So who dabbles in the online word of Star Trek?

    Not got fully into it yet but if you would like to add me, I'm Rawns - captain of the USS Malace!

    Speaking from only playing the demo and playing for 30 mins on the full version, I really like it. It does not seem as "hard core" or in-depth as some MMO's like EVA.

    The Space section of the game is great fun, and the 3rd person ground play is really enjoyable with phasers, nades, tech etc! It's still early days but I really enjoy all things Star Trek so I think that adds to the enjoyment factor!

    I have a trial sitting in my inbox which a COH friend gave me. I will be trying it tonight after I download it. Annoyingly the two races I most want to play are DLC!

    It’s differently a casual MMO. One you dip into and out of for a few hours. If you are looking to spends hours upon hours a night like you would in some other MMO’s then STO isn’t a good choice. I estimate it would take 30 to 60hours to do all the missions in STO and hit max level.

    I think it's £9.99 or £10.39 a month? Slightly more then WoW.

    They do an unlimited subscription for £190'ish quid. You get unlimited play time forever.

    I hear that there is also no end-game content yet. Still early days though!

    A short while ago there was no end game content. Now there is a small amount but not enough for an MMO. Of the top of my head there are 4 STF’s (Special Task Force) these are missions that are impossible to do solo. You have to have 5 people and take a while. Sort of like raids in other games. There is an accolade system, basically achievements. Explore 100 sectors, get a title. Kill 500 borg get a title and bonus power. That’s about it until the season two update in July.

    Personally I do not like the STF’s The concept is good but the balance and fun factor is not 100% right yet.

    I had a big session over the weekend and managed to get promoted to Lieutenant Commanded 1 (Which I think is lvl 11?)

    Got a new ship at last too which I got to choose for 3 classes. I went down the escort route (out of escort, science & cruiser I think...). Escort class ships are smaller, have more fire power and are faster. Think they have a weaker hull though.

    I think I also did one of those STF missions Pottsey mentioned. Had to take out 60 ships first (and there were hundreds everywhere), next had to take out 60 cruisers, then load of mines in a mine field that was HUGE and then finally a dreadnought class ship. There were about 20 federation ships blasting it! Was awesome!!!
