I extremely enjoy playing this game and seem to not be able to stop playing it ever since I got it. I probably like it more than the average gamer because I am a Star Trek fan. I wouldn't recommend this game if you haven't watched Star Trek, it is highly based off of the series and movies. Although I do believe it is possible to get a good experience out of this game whether or not you're a Star Trek fan. This game really makes you feel a part of Star Trek and fits in with the films so well.

The story is really nice and the content seems endless. You can play as a member of Starfleet, the Klingon Defense Force, or the Romulan Republic, and they all have seperate storylines. In Starfleet, you can come from a fresh Cadet from Starfleet Academy to a full fledged Fleet Admiral. In the Romulan Storyline you can start out as a simple farmer on a Romulan colony, to a Fleet Admiral of the Romulan Republic. In the Klingon Storymode you can be a honorable warrior as a member of the mighty Klingon Empire, to becoming a Dahar Master and have all the honor you can have.

Of course the storylines end at some point, but you can join fleets where you can work on getting amazing weapons and technologies. You can work your way up the Tiers of Reputation Systems, where you may get different kinds of overpowered stuff. The list goes on and on! This Free To Play MMO RPG game is a great experience for literally all ages! There is a small grinding mechanic in this game so if you do not like to grind for rare/good items then I wouldn't recommend this game.

There's a Zen Store, where you can buy all kinds of stuff, to old 22nd Century Enterprise Uniforms, to brand new ships with special abilities. I have heard of people complaining that this is a Pay to Win game and it's a money drain and all that. But it has been proven that free ships can compete, also you can get zen without spending any money, it just takes a little longer. Infact you can get everything in the game without paying a cent if you want. Except for the Subscriptions. Plus this IS a free game. You can't exactly blame the devs for asking for money.

This game has a lot of bugs so I wouldn't recommend this game if you hate buggy games. But if you can look past the bugs this game is wonderful. You can customize your character and make him or her look completely original, and you can also customize your ships with paints and hull textures!

This game has so much content you could have 1,000+ hours on record and still not have seen everything. The developers constantly update the game and fix bugs. You can't give the game justice in one single review. I extremely hope this review was helpful for you and if not that's alright as well. If you get this game I hope you'll like it as much as I do.

By all means play this game so long as you don't spend money on it.

For those that don't know, Star Trek Online (STO) is an MMORPG loosely based in the Star Trek universe. Canon is not followed that heavily however there are facilities to create your own story, involving roleplay communities and the foundry which is a tool to design your own missions. If you are a Trek fan I would personally leave your Trek canon feelings at the door as you might find they get challenged at regular intervals.

That said it is a personal thing, and so work through the story because that is one thing that STO has done reasonably well for. The art in STO has always been very good and so that combined with the story missions has always made good time spent.

Now pre-Delta Rising this game was pretty unique in that people who were casual, hardcore, in-between or even super-casual could play the game and be able to enjoy it. You could be competitve on less than an hour a day, and while some things required more commitment, it was something that would get you competitive with others without too much grief.

However those positives mentioned I would be negligent to not go over in detail the severe issues in the game, and therefore why I cannot in good faith recommend this game to anyone who wants an enjoyable, sensibly progressive experience or doesn't want a second job.

I am now talking post-Delta Rising for the most part, which is where most of the issues that now permeate the game originate from. I'll be talking about the bugs, which has been an ongoing issue anyway, the difficulty settings, the ongoing issue of the degraded state of testing and bad customer relations.

STO is riddled with so many bugs it makes an ant colony look small. Two of the top developers have openly admitted to not listening to player feedback any more, which is very apparent. The beta test server is now mockingly called the 'exclusive preview server' as what you see is what you get, broken mechanics, bugs and game-breaking exploits with it.

Part of the reason for this is that their QA team for STO is a measely 5 people strong (http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/showthread.php?p=20853101#post20853101). This has shown through the years as bugs have built up due to there never being enough bugs fixed before a lot more come in to replace them like a hydra's head.

Some proof of the developers lack of regard for the player opinion:
1) http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/showthread.php?p=13321451#post13321451
This link is to the Star Trek Online forums. It has a message from Tacofangs that tells us that by the time they are putting out content it is basically set in stone apart from the odd tweaks here and there, and usually they are just tweaks.

2) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dYsw_GYP8Ok
An interview which enraged players when Geko says that there is no actionable feedback on the Duty Officer UI. Suffice to say there was plenty of it and they did back track in a small manner after the uproar the interview caused and did give an option to minimise the UI.

3) http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/showthread.php?t=1224081&page=79
Because a practical case in point is always good, this is the link to the Tribble Feedback post for the Upgrade System. This is by far and away the most recent poignant example of the effort Tribble Testers such as myself put in to be simply ignored. I challenge anyone to go through that thread and find a dev response that addresses the core concerns of that well tested feedback.

As far as Cryptic are concerned, money comes first and retaining players second. Feedback is ignored unless something crops up that damages their profits, which is why the game is so badly riddled with bugs.

A very recent example is the recent release (Delta Rising) had such a huge content gap that many of us had to run patrol missions to fill the levelling gap, Cryptic even recommend this as the way to do it. However a bug that was flagged up during testing was the patrols weren't all scaling. Of course because this wasn't fixed it made it the easiest patrol and so people used it to get past the absurd gaps.

So what do Cryptic do? They roll back a decent sized number of the players, cut experience gains by 70% and call everyone who took part exploiters. As you can imagine, although some would obviously exploit, the vast majority weren't and Delta Rising is becoming a PR nightmare.

The reason this turned into a PR nightmare is two fold, firstly and as I have said, they ignored tribble testers. Yet the big issue that started up was that many folks who got hit by the roll-back were innocent of any wrongdoing. Anyone who has had any serious experience with Cryptic's customer services knows their ability to read data is severely lacking. I have personally been quoted inaccurate purchase history, incorrect data on missing items and even had the representative show a critical lack of company knowledge about current events, even about new development blogs that I was asked to send a screenshot of to prove existed.

Next thing I want to talk about is the state of the game in terms of how one participates in the end game content and how easy that is to do. As it stands now Ground Combat allows for a lot more build flexibility than Space Combat does. The closer you get to end game Elite level (the top grade) the more you have to build a ship that is focused on damage dealing and little else.

So to clarify, Space Combat at end game has become a DPS Race (DPS = Damage Per Second), where having DPS more in the 20-30k range or higher is essentially required to complete the missions, simply because the devs decided ramping up the hitpoints, shields and resistances on enemies exponentially was the way to improve difficulty which has only led to a system where creativity is punished in favour of linear builds.

On the other hand we have Ground Combat that is still accessible to build variety so long as the build is sensible and is well fought out, and in fact each profession can run at least 4-5 different base builds and all of them can be effective. However that being said Cryptics idea of making this harder was to increases the numbers of tough enemies in missions and make them hit harder, something that doesn't make the experience reinvigorating or challenging on ground maps.

One thing that links both though are the awkward optionals. Advanced queues have timers or objectives that instantly fail the mission if they fail, which is bad from a player progression standpoint as a fresh 50 is going to struggle to get gear they need, as the gear materials come from those missions which has led to a sort of necessity of either having a very competant team or the chance to be carried through, both options of which are poor game design. However the sad part is anyone who has the gear already has a leg up and can finish the missions with relative ease still, however at this point in time Elite Borg queues are missing so using the old favourites as a comparison is not easy, however I will post videos of before and after in case anyone wants to look them over.

A comparison:
Old Elite Khitomer Ground: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AWNFn7JdbXA Only 4 Elite Tactical Drones when this was filmed.
New Advanced Khitomer Ground (Technically supposed to be old Elite): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KhaqdIHtIEo This has 17 Elite Tactical Drones in, slightly weaker but still time eaters for less geared or experienced teams.

I will post Elite Comparisons when they become available.

Want to play? Go right ahead, but when you start hitting the pay walls, don't ignore the fact you'll be paying literally hundreds of whatever currency you use to get competitive, it's not like before when newer folks had every chance to be as good as the older players.

So would I recommend this to anyone? Of course not, play for free but don't be surprised when Cryptic ruins it, again.

When I first started this game I'd recomend it to anyone interested in space RPGs, now: never.
Why? Simple really, in the beginning this game was almost perfectly balanced, with ~30% content grind, but these things where optional and could be found as loot with % drop chance, bought from other players or simply a direct reward while you where exploring new areas etc.
As it is now, there are HUGE power creeps, making almost all viable options of ships and skills bad-really bad, and a handfull few stupidly overpowered and all new updates and new ships they pour in makes the ship you grind for obsoleate before you even get it.
There are 5 (main) types of credits. Three which you need to specificly grind for.
And don't get me started on those damn Locked Boxes, you need a key to open, keys can be bought for ~1-2 000 000 credits (or just pay up real money). Each boxs has ~1-2% chance (stays at that % even if you pay) of holding ANYTHING you would like, most is just useless crap.

And forgett the exploration they're boasting about, it's just the same thing over and over, go to place a and defeat three waves of really easy enemies, then defeat the really easy flagship, repeat. (Yes, I played on Elite setting.)


Now let me explain where the grind element comes in, a base ship has ~20 slots for equipment.
You will grind for:
Space:
- The ship itself. (Price for good ships ~1 000 000 ( very low end) - 100 000 000 (high end) ingame credits. One Elite mission will give you avarage ~100 000)
- Weaponsx6-8. (It'll take you ~3 weeks to get ONE high level ship equipment from a Fleet merchant.)
- Shield.
- Engine.
- Deflector.
- Consolesx6-8.
- Space crew skills.

Personal: (You + crew.)
- Weaponx6.
- Shieldx5.
- Armourx5.
- Skill Kit.
- Land crew skills.
- Crafting. (Gods only know how long THAT will take.)
- Passive skills.
- Sub missions. (Duty missions.)
- Events. (These will pile up quick and if you don't do enough to turn it in (100%), you walk away with nothing.)
- Reputationx6-7.
- Crafting XP.
- Crafting material. (More kinds than you have slots in your Bank btw, and you don't find the ones related to each other in the same place, forcing you to scan every single quadrant to find those you need and end up with a ton of those you don't anyway.)

Fleet: (Community effort.)
- 5 buildings to simultaniously upgrade, with 6 subcategories each, all 6 can (and need to) be upgraded atleast 5 times. (All demands HUGE quantities the same resources as your ships and eqpts cost.)
Don't think that's the end of the list, I just can't remember what more there where.

So no, no no no no no no no NO, do not start this game, because it'll eat up all your time and give you nothing in return.

Having thousands of hours played into this game, STO has been a bitter sweet experience. STO was a great game back when it was a subscription model, though it was still generic on all aspect of gameplay. The ship models are very nicely designed, ground game however; Very shallow, while the highlight of the game are the space battles, you cannot help but think it is a mere space bar spammer or clicker. Through the years the storyline has improved and the addition of voice acting has helped enhance the experience, however; that cannot save it from the harsh Development team strategy, which are time gates, lock boxes, extreme cost for upgrades, and lack of customer support. This is truly one for the most diehard Star Trek fans like me, but for serious gamers, avoid this one unless you love all PWE games & their business model.

This MMO is nothing more then a F2P (Forced 2 Pay... Well okay rather a F2PFP2P, which is short for Free 2 Play Forced Pay To Progress) money pit which you will find out when you get towards L50. I have tried coming back to this twice now and both times it was much the same. Pay to Play model forced down peoples throats without mercy. With this new "Delta Rising" expansion however it becomes absurdely prevelent to the lengths of corporate greed this company will go just to try to "milk" potential new cash cow customers/players just for L60 gear.

Now while yes you technically can get end-game stuff for "free 2 play" expect to take this on as a full time job if you do and give up whatever you currently call a life because in the end this is what this one realistically boils down to. Which is unless you feel like blowing money which is better spent towards other games or essentially a new PC, Rent, Bills, ect...

Bottom Line, Essentially this is put out by a company that tried to force steam users along with non-steam users to use a data mining launcher which gathers ALL of your information to sell to 3rd partys, Ultimately early on it's a good way to pass the time and invest in if your a die-hard trekkie (which be forewarned prior to delta rising they gutted the core essence of the exploration aspect of what made star trek what it is by removing it all together!) otherwise your better off passing this one up as it will suck you in and suck your wallet bone dry with it's addiction forming factor. Essentially the norm for this is you'll get hooked, play it for about a few months, get sick/bored of it, and ditch it for about 6 months to a year or longer and just rinse, and repeat.

First off, I was a big fan of Star Trek. To me it really wasn't about the characters, it was more abou the tech and the ships. I can pilot the NX, Excelsior, and TOS Connie? Sign me up!

I started playing the game over 2 years ago, and honestly the direction is has been moving has made it so I no longer interested in the game. There will always be grinding in MMOs, that's a given. STO however takes the grinding to a whole new level of bad. The game is set up to get you to 50 quickly so you can start grinding away. You grind for reps, the traits of which you are now limited to 4 active space and ground. You grind for gear that is now going to be worthless so guess what? Grind for the newer gear. To PWE/Cryptic, grinding = content. Add the time gates to slow down any meaningful progress in the game, and you have what amounts to a second job.

The last few feature episodes have been single player only. So what's the point of being in an MMO if I can't run what little new content there is with friends? This is the most single-player MMORPG I have ever played. With the dwindling amount of players that probably won't be a bad thing in a while.

Now after telling their player base there would never be T6 ships because they wouldn't want to make everyone's T5s obsolete (some costing $25.00 for a single ship), they are now rolling out T6s and giving people the opportunity to upgrade their T5s to T5Us, which will still be inferior to T6s. In the case of fleet ships you will end up paying three times for the same ship, just to get a little better stats.

If you play STO for any length of time you will notice the cash-grabbing. I understand they have to generate revenue, but they way they do it makes you feel used. I have seen it grow worse with every season to the point it is so obvious now you wonder if they will charge you every time you enter Earth spacedock.

If endless grinding is your idea of fun, then this game is for you. But this is not a Star Trek MMO. They have moved so far away from the base material this is now a generic space MMO with a Star Trek flavor packet. I only log in for the social aspect with my friends who haven't left the game. It's sad, but I can no longer recommend this game to anyone.

This game was good at first but now they do not care about the customer or their products they just want money. There are problems they don't seem to fix they just prefer to ignore them and add more stuff to the game. There are bugs that make the game hard to play like the power tray and the loadout don't work. I really can't tell you how much I hate this game and Cryptic Studio or Perfect World Entertainment.

I have no idea how this game has so many positive reviews, Im a fanboy for sure, but I still cant bring myself to like this game since the company was sold, and I have played and do play mmo's Still. Im a lifetime sub and I am telling you this game stinks. The business model seems to be sell lockbox keys, Honestly haven’t touched it in 6 months at least but it can’t have changed that much. Flying between Sectors is the least immersive experience in gaming I think I’ve ever had, feels like I’m swimming in a kiddie pool... with 100 other ships in these tiny space sectors. Another disappointing entry into the Star Trek Video game franchise.

If you are a Star Trek fan and/or enjoy MMORPGs, you will really enjoy this game and may end up spending a lot of time here.

The character customization is fantastic, I can lose myself trying to detail each member of my crew. The aesthetics are very good, although there may be some lag if you enter a high player-vs.-environment area.

The lore is very good, and you can teleport down to countless planets and walk around, doing missions on the ground. There are vehicles too and the combat is pretty standard for an MMORPG. The grinding and item drops are reasonable, and you can grind HARD to get a good ship, but that will take A LOT of time.

The coolest feature is when you deploy your squad into an enemy ship, however, I really wished it could be like Pirates of the Caribbean (the XBOX original, buggy gem) where you could take it over and use for your own, but you cannot (would take away from the grinding aspect of the game).

There is a massive variety of missions, both in space and on the ground.

The space battles can be very, very fun when you go into an area with a lot of activity. Watching an armada of ships trying to destroy a Borg cube can be intense and rewarding.

Would definitely recommend giving it a chance if you were interested.

Cheers,

First things first, don't let my play time fool you. I've been a player of Star Trek Online for over 2 years now and I gotta say; it's not getting any better. That said, let's start out with the good...

You can't talk about a Star Trek game without talking about emersion. This game does draw you in and make you feel like you're a part of the 24th century universe that began with Christopher Pike and continued for decades after. You feel like you’re a part of the galaxy, doing missions to better the life of those around you. That said, it’s only good emersion for one pass through. Starting a second character you’re instantly bored and upset with having to perform the same exact story over again. Thankfully there is more than one race, which means more than one story. If you want to stay the same race though, just take a different route (Assault/Science/Engineering) you’ll find yourself performing the same story over and over again. Anyway, back to the good stuff…

Sound and graphics are well done in this game. Arguably the best Star Trek experience yet because of that. Game play adds to that experience as well. Large ships, while having more firepower and armor, actually feel bulky and slow while smaller ships are much faster and more maneuverable. You have to customize your equipment/ship to the style you play or you’ll quickly find yourself in a lot of trouble when an enemy race locks its weapons on you. There are also a HUGE array of ships you can use, of all classes and sizes, bringing a high level of variety, sort of...

Now let’s get to the bad. While this game is free, it would be much better if it had a monthly fee. The game has been slowly converted from a very balanced system to that of a “pay to win” system. The best ships can only be found on the marketplace and only those willing to fork out some cash (which is the same price as approximately 2 months on most pay-to-play games) will have access to those ships. Now, I’m not going to say I haven’t purchased my share of ships, because I have. But it gets extremely frustrating when a ship you paid good money for is suddenly made inferior by the next ship released. That ship then being made inferior by the next, and so on, and so on, and so on… Not to mention the fact that these “pay-to-win” ships draw players in, much like end-game equipment in WoW, so that any new content added to the end-game will be tackled by everyone flying the same ships. That’s the way it was when I got my Galaxy Dreadnaught. Suddenly everyone had one. Then the next ship launched and everyone had it, me included. The Prometheus class? I don’t think a single person in-game doesn’t have that one.

The pay-to-win scheme has literally destroyed this game. You start to hate looting ships/people because all you get now are drop boxes, which require you to purchase keys to open. I remember, at one time, having my inventory filled with nothing but drop boxes. I finally dumped them, as selling them on the market is totally useless (since it’s saturated).

Some players might argue that you can trade in-game dilithium for store currency, and it’s true. That said, in order to make even slight profit from trades you basically have to turn the game into a job and do nothing but dilithium gathering. It’s worse than gold farming in WoW or Guild Wars 2. Honestly, not worth the time or effort you put into it.

So, do I recommend this game? Well, I’m going to say no due to the VERY heavy “Pay-to-win” scheme they’ve adopted. That said, if you’re a fan of Star Trek you simply can’t avoid owning this title.

After an obsessive Deep Space 9 marathon that left me yearning for more but unwilling to subject myself to Voyager/Enterprise, I decided to give this game a try to ween me off the resurgence of my inner Trekie. I don't regret trying it, and put a lot of time into it/might not be finished with it, but I also can't recommend it as a good game. While not exactly a 'pay to win' production, there does come a point in the higher levels where upgrading your ships to the current maximum level takes more 'Zen', the purchasable currency of the game, than a person could reasonably be expected to gather themselves in-game.

Pros:
- The game has great character customization. Few are willing to admit that most MMO's are basically complex dress-up games, but this game embraces that element. Not only are you afforded extensive personal customization, but all your bridge officers can be fully customized as well, ony their sex and their race being pre-determined. While there are many alien races to choose from, you can also select 'Alien', which allows you to create your own species, and gives you wildly versatile customization. Want to play as a bald, pot-bellied toddler running around with a Bat-leth? Go for it. Want your captain to look exactly like a Vault-Boy Bobble-head? No problem. Want your first officer to look exactly like one of those giant blue chicks from Avatar? Jake Sulley it up all you want.

- Ship combat is fun, versatile, and very nostalgic. The mechanics mirror the way combat is portrayed in the show very well, with all the special abilities available being the go-to phrases of Captains throughout the Star Trek franchise. Emergency power to weapons, reverse sheild polarity, fire a full spread of torpedoes, activate the tacheon beam... all the technobabble of Star-Trek returns, all with unique functions in combat. My personal favorites? Ramming Speed and Self Destruct.

- Uncannily challenging for an MMO. The game has the rare MMO feature of a difficulty setting, and the max difficulty is really quite challenging after the tutorial levels, and really quite crushingly difficult after around the lvl 40 mark. The ships you confront will be exceptionally more powerful than yours, often able to obliterate you in a single torpedo spread, making quick reaction time and well-thought-out tactics essential.

Cons:
- Ground combat is weak, and ground missions are often exceedingly annoying puzzles that don't so much challenge you to think as force you to do a lot of tedious reading while running back and forth between consoles. Many of the ground missions were a major chore to complete.

-The crafting system is dreadful. Essential resources are incredibly scant, about 2 harvesting nodes present on about 2/3s of the missions you run, and 90% of those nodes being the basic common-grade materials, meaning you'll have huge stacks of those and next to none of anything else. The only decent way to gain experience in crafting is to engage in these 20-hour research projects that prevent you from building anything while they're active, and actually building things gives you minimal experience by comparison, and wastes your over-rare resources. The only way to really succeed in crafting is to buy crates of resources using Zen, I.E real world money. Otherwise, your crafting will never in a million years keep up with your leveling, or ever be of any real value to you except perhaps in the distant future of play.

- It doesn't really feel like an MMO. Besides the occassional 'Borg attack' event to which everyone in a system is invited, playing with other people is a rarity in this game. You see other folks flying through space at warp, you run into other folks at the docks/space stations, but the vast majority of missions are all solo experiences. There are ques for PVE and PVP events, but they are so long that I've never successfully joined whatever it is they're queing for.

- space combat, while entertaining, follows 2-dimensional rules. While I undserstand the need for set 'up' and a set 'down' while in space combat simply to keep directions and mapping viable, ships are far too bound too and bogged down by the imposition of 'up' and 'down' in space combat. You cannot dive, nor fly straight up, nor do a flip, nor fly upside-down. You essentially move like a sub-marine and not a space-ship. This puts annoyingly restrictive limits on manuevering and heavily detracts from a players capacity to use superior piloting skills to any sort of advantage. It's also highly annoying when travling to positions/enemies above or below you, as you have to slowly spiral down or spiral up in order to change your height position. This has got to be the single greatest turn-off for me.

After Almost 500 Hours, and the same amount of cash, this is a Star Trek fanboy dream, almost, after this amount of time in game, conclusion, needs to go the way of WoW in a big way, lot of hidden fees, and vague, unclear things, to make you spend even more money, some shady stuff going on here....if you are a Star Trek Fan be careful, you could buy quite a few games, with the amount of money you end up possibly spending, and you will want to spend money, cause the game is geared that way, would prefer a monthly fee for sure over the paygate to happiness here, free to play is a really bad thing, unfortunately if it wasn't for that we would not still have this game.....good and bad.....

good
Star Trek
space combat is ok, but you do not have full 360 which doesn't make any sense, with dx11, and physics,
No Reward for Content, very limited Items, and rewards,
pay to win
yes you can get everything in game
but they limit you to how much you can make in one day
so you will want to spend more
which shouldn't be
once you spend 150 bucks lol you should have all you need for a year
but doesn't work out that way
if you are easy to spend money they will get rich off you

If you are looking for a fun, zany, free-to-play game that involves spaceships blowing each other out of the sky then you can't really go wrong with this one.

A lot of people complain about 'paywalls' or the game being 'pay-to-win'. Yeh, it is, I can't argue with this as I've spent quite a lot over my 400+ hour gametime. HOWEVER, if you only take part in PvE, the story and the endgame reputation system then you have no reason to buy anything. You can earn everything in game. Once I realised this I stopped throwing money into it and I've since had a blast not paying for anything. Granted it all takes a lot longer and some things, like saving for the late game ships and equipment, can take hundreds of hours as well as careful resource managment.

I should say at this point this is also not Star Trek, at least not for me. If you liked the TV series for the tense diplomacy and starship standoffs, you probably won't like the 'story' aspect of this game (which involves throwing your starship at wave after wave of opponents in never-ending explosive battles - which tbh is awesome :p). If you liked the films, epic, all guns blazing space battles, (see above) then go for it, you will love this game.

The community is pretty good, all fairly laid back and the fleet actions and STF's are a fun.

One final point about the 'pay-to-win'. The ships you can buy with real money are hit and miss, some are worth it, some aren't and they are all upwards of £15, the really good tier5+6 ships are around £25-£30. So... if you are thinking of buying a ship, my advice is to only buy the endgame ships (tier5+6) as these are the ships you'll spend the most time in, I wasted money on a middle tier ship and now it just sits doing nothing and didn't really get me anywhere I couldn't have gotten by just playing the game. If you are wanting to buy a ship do some research, ask around and ask yourself 'Do I really, REALLY need this to enjoy the game?' - Most of the time the answer will be no.

Despite the paywall, I would recommend this game. It is cheesy, spacey, laser-battlin' good.

Game is a sham now. Devs have openly admitted that they have no interest in PVP balance and are only interested in devising ways to extract more money out of players.

The story line is VERY good, very trek and as you can see I've spent SOME hours in the game.
It used to be very fun but lately the devs arrogance is increasing and theay are NOT listening to the playerbase.

A great amount of players are unsatisfied at the moment and instead of communicating with the community all they do is deleting threadsthey don't like on the forums



*This review is subject to change if the dev team changes its strategy

I usually didnt care for those Steam reviews that were only a few sentences long with no details, but now I am adding my own. Why? I feel it incumbent upon me to warn other players of the awful state of this game since the laughable Delta Rising expansion. WIth MMOs, time changes things, reviews can get better, but in this case that VERY POSITIVE listed above should read VERY NEGATIVE.

40 hours in.

I would recomend it. It feels like I am playing in the Star Trek universe. I LOVE playing with the starships.

It feels like a mess of systems with a weak focus, but that may be because I like single player games as opposed to MMOs. (I feel similar about The Old Republic) Although this one is less focused due to the dual systems of space and ground combat. Which means that both are less developed that might be expected if the game only used one of those.

That said, both space and ground are not bad, but really don't feel like a part of a triple A title.

It's free! so give it a shot.

If you love star trek, you will probably enjoy it. Otherwise it may be best to give it a pass.
