I think this game is going to attract players who want to be part of a crew and experience the true Star Trek feel in a game. Concerning the topic of instances wouldn’t that promote a sense of a “unique experience” on a mission with crew mates?  I can't see how this game is going to cater to a solo mentality and I am quite happy with that concept. But is it going to feel like a guild wars game in the sense of how instances work? I am still waiting to see how STO debuts & hope it does well. We all need a good sci-fi!


The artwork looks amazing= thanks for the article

Have you heard of this thing called common sense? What you typed took longer than just answering the question. Not sure if that makes you a jerk or a moron.

Anyway... I'm really looking forward to this game. Not just because I've been a Star Trek fan since my mother first let me stay up to watch the original series reruns back in the mid 1970's... but because, frankly, I'm fantasy-ed out. I'd like to play a new MMORPG that isn't fantasy-based. I'm just glad to have read even one little tidbit about how the game's coming, even if the article didn't tell us a whole lot of new information.

In this case IP represents a franchise such as Star Trek, or Star Wars, or Battle Star Galactica. For example games like Star Wars Galaxies are part of an IP aka franchised name- and they have to answer to that franchise

It's people like you Endemondia, that show the arrogant, juvenile side of game forums. You need to take that giant leap forward yourself. If you can't answer the question for the person, just don't post. As opposed to a sarcastic worthless answer that only shows your own stupidity.

On a better note, I think any news on this game is good news at this point. If they want to share some information, great. I look forward to more.

Is it going to be level or skill based, is it going to be quest or "sandbox" based, how will combat and ship control work. How will they do "crafting" in a universe where everything can be made for you in the little machine?
These would have been much better questions to ask than "how is the ship going to look".

Last I read (in an article of MMORPG.COM no less) the game was going to be class/level based (a little fuzzy on that detail), with missions instanced for your crew - the only time you will be likely to run into another player not on your crew will be at starbases - no PvP combat or even playable races hostile to the Federation, and when you get injured, you are always instantly saved 100% healthy via Star Trek teleporter + hypospray magic.

I can see where some of the design decisions came from in order to keep with the theme of Star Trek, but I'm not sure if I'll be wanting to play it. But despite all my negativity, I will say that they seem to have a rather interesting approach to Ship control/flight. Haven't seen any solid details yet, but it look like it will be a crew effort, with each person managing a system in a sort of mini-game.

I don't know what article your referring to which is odd since I've read every one of them but your info is 99% wrong. First off they have stated numerous times that there will be professions like Engineering, Tactical/Security and Science/Medical but these could be set up in a number of different ways. They could be like classes in a traditional MMO or they could be Skill systems set up within each profession and even cross-profession so not all people in a certain profession have the same skill set. Also they have said numerous times that there will be ranks attainable within Starfleet but this does not equal "Level based". Ranks will be performance based I would guess and will have nothing to do with the level of your skills. They have also said that some away missions will be instanced but this does not mean everything outside of a starbase will be instanced. This only eludes that certain planetside away missions from your ship will be instanced. They have also stated that there will be factions within Starfleet that people can align themselves with...this could mean everything from card carrying Starfleet officers to members of fringe groups like the Marquis. They have also stated  numerous times that there will be some form of PvP in this game they just haven't said what form it will take yet. I'm guessing some sort of Holo-arena type deal. And all they have said with certainty is that there will be no Perma-Death for players or ships. They stated that you would reappear at the last Starbase you visited if your ship blew up or back on your ship if you died on an away mission. They did not state what shape you would be in when you reappeared. Please get your facts straight if your gonna make statements like this as it does no one any good to read nonsense/misinformed posts like yours.

I haven't been much of a Trek fan since Next Gen went off the air, but what I've seen so far is enough to make me interested. if nothing the updated designs are nice.

Oh and for the guy who asked what IP meant, it stands for Intellectual Property. Which like the other poster stated in this case stands for existing entertainment franchises from say film or TV.

I'm hungry for a new sci-fi MMORPG so this reads good to me.  Just hope it's not an Elf and Orc is space kind of thing.

A Post Apoc Mad Max type with skill points rather then levels would make me pretty happy too.

I must say that I am truly impressed at Perpetual for not treating this game as a pop-genre MMO and actually taking the time and resources to give this as real of a Star Trek feel as they can. One of the biggest disappointments in games such as Star Wars Galaxies and Lord of the Rings Online was that their developers and publishers opted for the "it has the _____ name so people will play it" attitude. Fortunately, Perpetual is not appearing to be doing that from it's concept art. By looking at these new images I can truly tell that this game is not being made by bureaucrats or cash cows, but instead it is being made by people like you and me....people who grew up watching Kirk or Picard on their screens...people who would look up to the stars, close their eyes, and just dream. This game is on its way to reversing the lackluster performance of the Star Trek gaming franchise. Hopefully, it will help reverse the lackluster performance the Star Trek series and movie franchise has recently exemplified.

I'm sure it has been noted somewhere, but if the article writer saw a picture of a new Enterprise, it probably wasn't 1701-E, as that was the ship for movies 8-10 and wouldn't really be considered new. Unless he never saw those movies and only watched the series.

I've been following the STO development since I first heard about it.  I run a small gaming community that was started in the Star Trek genre.  We've been looking for a new ST game to expand into and Legacy failed at any attempt to satisfy us.  PE seems to have their heads in the game and with people like Michael Okuda onboard, I'm confident that the game will meet most expectations.  I'd rather have them take thier time and do it right than release it when it won't do the job or fill the shoes we expect it to fill.

The closer it gets to GnH's release the more info about STO we'll get.  They may even wait to tackle our 'demands' until afterwards.  Wouldn't you as a company?  I'm going to sit back and relax... and wait for it.  They'll give us what we want.  If they don't.... Trekkies from all over the world will hunt them down. hehe....

It would be interesting to see what type of 'crew' system they come up with.

I can think of a few roles for separate players to fill:
Helmsman - steers the ship
Weapons - fires torp's etc
Navigator - sees map and plots waypoints for helmsman to pilot to
Engineer - regulates power between drives, weapons, shields, life support etc
Radioman - scans 'local chat' and/or npc distress signals that launch a mission (non radio types can't decode transmission)
Mechanic - runs about the ship repairing damaged sectors
Doctor - to stand over dead body and say "He's dead Jim."

There must must must be pvp, even if only racial pvp. Maybe even cycle who can attack who each month based on a story arc as the relations and treaties are made and broken.
