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. BELOVED UNIVERSE 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! ULTIMATE DISCOVERY 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).

In Star Trek Online, the Star Trek universe appears for the first time on a truly massive scale. In this massively multiplayer online game from Cryptic Studios, players can pioneer their own destiny as Captain of a Federation starship. Or, they can become a Klingon Warlord and expand the Empire to the far reaches of the galaxy. Players will have the opportunity to visit iconic locations from the popular Star Trek fiction, reach out to unexplored star systems, and make contact with new alien species.

With episode missions, every moment spent playing Star Trek Online feels like a new Star Trek episode in which you are the star. Immerse yourself in the future of the Trek universe as it moves into the 25th century: a time of shifting alliances and new discoveries. And with the wealth of items included with the Star Trek Online Collector’s Edition (see item list below), enjoy the most engrossing Star Trek video game experience to date.

Adventure in the Final Frontier
Explore strange new worlds and seek out new life and new civilizations in a vast, expanding universe. Establish contact with new races, discover resources and uncover mysteries that will influence Star Trek’s future. In 2409, Star Trek Online exists in a timeframe beyond even the latest movies, so everything you experience will be brand new, but still based on all the fiction you love.

You Are the Captain
Star Trek Online is the first AAA MMO to feature space and ground combat at launch. Missions will take you and your friends into the depths of space, across exotic planets, and even inside starships. As the Captain of your very own ship, it’s up to you to lead your crew on missions that span a number of locations. You call the shots, no matter where you are. When you’re in space, you direct the action – be it in the middle of a high-tension battle, where you can maneuver in 3-D space and fire a vast array of weaponry at your enemies, or as you enter warp to explore parts of the galaxy never before documented. On the ground, you lead your away team across exciting terrain, interacting with allies and battling enemies. Every Captain commands five subordinates on the ground, all of which can be directed to act in any manner you choose. Can you lead them safely through dangerous locales?

Total Customization
Using Cryptic’s Total Customization technology, every ship you command can be customized by you, from its color to its construction. Your ship will retain a Star Trek “feel,” but it will also represent your style. What’s more, anyone can create their own species in Star Trek Online, meaning you can tell your own story about how you came to be in the galaxy and leave your mark on the Star Trek universe.

Built by Veterans with You in Mind
Star Trek Online is developed by Cryptic Studios, creators of the massively successful City of Heroes and City of Villains. It’s built on the Cryptic Engine, a core technology that means Cryptic game designers can focus less on a game’s nuts and bolts and more on creating a game that captures Star Trek’s essence, guaranteeing that both longtime fans of Star Trek and people new to the universe will feel at home.

A solid effort, but ultimately disappointing When I first heard that Cryptic Studios was taking over production of STO from Perpetual Entertainment, I was thrilled. Perpetual had effectively done everything in its power to alienate the Trekkers who would be playing the game, and Cryptic had a solid reputation with me from their work done on City of Heroes/Villains.Star Trek Online ultimately proved disappointing to me. I bought the Collector’s Edition, which is very nicely packaged and includes a slew of freebie passes to hand out to your friends, a cool-looking replica of the new combadge featured in the game, and a very nice selection of production art. The game installs easily and once the patcher finishes updating, you’re ready to go. Character creation is very involved, enabling you to customize virtually to your heart’s content. Human, Vulcan, Bolian, Betazoid, non-joined Trill, Andorian…or get really creative & invent your very own 100% original Star Trek alien species! You choose Tactical, Engineering…

Average gamers review of STO First off, I am not a huge Star Trek fan, but I don’t dislike it either. I enjoyed the movies and the occasional TNG episode. I even enjoyed Enterprise. I like Scott Bakula, Connor Trinear, and who doesn’t love Jolene Blaylock. Hottest Vulcan ever. I never got into TOS, DS9 or Voyager however. That’s not to say I will never even give them a glance, just that I don’t think I’ve ever seen an episode other than some of TOS. Sooooo, I’m not a fan boy in any sense of the word. Now that you know a little about my Star Trek background, on with the review.The majority of this review was written prior to the actual release of the game. The content in this review is regarding my experiences of the beta and the first few days of release. Some of the details of this review may differ slightly as time passes due to updates; however, I feel that most will probably remain the same or very close.Short and sweet if you don’t want to read the whole review, I enjoy the game…

To Boldly Go… PLEASE TAKE NOTE BEFORE PURCHASING: As of January of this year, STAR TREK ONLINE is now free-to-play, meaning that you do NOT have to buy this or any other retail product to start playing. Simply visit the official website (sto.perfectworld.com), create an account, and download the game from there. The retail copies are not worthless, though, and I actually think this Collector’s Edition is well worth the price for what you get, especially if you end up liking the game.And apologies for the long-winded review!–I’ve been a Star Trek fan for a long time, but STAR TREK ONLINE came around post-WoW and I was not looking for another MMO to get sucked into. In addition, the initial reviews for the game were not all that positive. It was really easy for me write it off. But here we are now and not only has the game gone through a serious overhaul, but it’s now free-to-play. I finally decided to take the plunge and I was nowhere near disappointed…
