STO: Explore, Discover, And Laser Dudes


The sheer amount of promotional materials pouring out of the Cryptic/Atari for Star Trek Online seems to suggest that MMO means to come out fighting. It's got some serious competition to go up against, even if we discount all the other bajillion games coming out in the early part of next year, there's going to be the looming threat of The Old Republic, which threatens to suck up sci-fi fans like a space-hoover when it arrives. Nevertheless I'm quietly confident that STO is going to do well for itself. There's just something about the setting that I think will click. If Cryptic can get the exploration and ship-management stuff right it really could be worth, er, beaming up. New trailer below.
