Star Trek Online is a very decent MMO that does a fair job at capturing the expansive Star Trek Universe. You will encounter a plethora of memorable personalities on your journeys throughout the game while exploring both the famous and uncharted systems across the galaxy.
At the time of this review you can currently play as a Star Fleet Officer, a Citizen of the new Romulan Republic, or a Warrior of the Klingon Empire. There are three career paths that you can chose - Tactical, Science, or Engineering - which determine what skills you have access to as well as what kind of ship you will command.
STO is one of my top 3 best MMOs and is the second best MMO for Free to Play Players as there are literally no content restrictions unlike games such as Star Wars: The Old Republic (End Game content + Expansion Pack) or The Lord of the Rings Online (all content beyond The Lone Lands (level 30ish) requires individual purchase or subscription). You can easily reach max level (50) and beyond without subscribing. That being said there are the common account restrictions for F2P players, such as a currency cap, limited character slots (3), no account bank, and limited character bank storage space.
If you do decide to play STO here are a few tips:
* Levels 1-49 are essentially a giant tutorial that helps familiarize you with the mechanics of the game.
* At level 50 the game content changes from Single Player to Group as you take part in STFs (Special Task Force) missions and their Elite counterparts where you fight extremely tough enemies such as the Borg and Tholians for reputation items.
* At End Game, Lock Box and Cryptic Store Ships are vastly superior to anything else. If you are serious about playing the game throughout the End Content you should consider purchasing one as well as a subscription.
