OP  11/04/09 8:20:15 AM#1

The Star Trek Online development team has penned this developer journal looking at Episode Missions, quest chains meant to capture the feeling of one-off episodes within the Trek universe.

Episodes are the mission chains in Star Trek Online that feel even more like you're playing an episode of the show than normal. We looked at more than 700 Star Trek TV episodes and dissected them to determine how those writers told stories in Roddenberry's universe, then set about crafting our own for you to enjoy.

We actually have content writers on staff who approach the mission chains as though they were standalone TV episodes. Rather than thinking strictly in game terms, they design the chains from an entertainment prospective. This means Episodes have themes, interesting dialog and dramatic moments designed specifically to look, feel and play like Star Trek.

Read Episode Missions Explained.

Cheers,
Jon Wood

Skill based system was a good move but this I am just not sure.

Is it Linear Progression?

Sorry, but did you read the article at all?

...

You can make diplomatic overtures toward characters in Episodes, but on the front lines it's very rare to avoid confrontation when dramatic forces have guided you into hostile territory with combat-ready antagonists nearby.

...

 

Seems to me it IS very combat focused.

did you?

In the same area we have

 

"will your negotiations with the captain of a Klingon Bird of Prey break down and come to blows? How far do you need to go to apprehend a spy on another vessel?"

I don't think you get what they are expressing. He basically says that there is a bit of other things like diplomacy but it will eventually lead to combat no matter what you do....but on the other hand perhaps my english is just to broken to understand him correctly. Please enlighten me if I am wrong about this.

if combat was inevitible then the wording would be "Whenl your negotiations with the captain of a Klingon Bird of Prey break down how will you come to blows" instead we get a less definitive "will it" imprying it "may not" break down.

This is the first sign that I have seen to show that the game will have some story line content.

Perhaps it is merely dev-speak designed to placate critics of the design, but it is something positive.

This is where I am. Yes, this sounds nice, but if you really look at and dissect the writing in this article....not much more than a whole lot of rhetoric that doesn't actually mean anything.

Am I counting it out? No, of course not. We just need to see more, because there's more martketing and hype-speak than actual information in this article.

Can Episodes be played out of order so your "sorta" making your own series?  Do you have to play X ep to get to Y ep in a progression?  I get that some stories require you to be a more advance ship over others but is it broken into Seasons of advancment?

Arranging the missions in the form of 'episodes' sounds like a fun idea to me.

I don't like the claims about how they know the source material so well, when the game is apparently designed to be very solo-oriented.

BTW, very cool avatar.

And then there's the entire Story Arc issue.  What happens if we get into a Story Arc and decide we don't like where its going?  Are we forced to complete it?

I'm all for Story Arcs as an option ... they *can* be a lot of fun.   But they can also be poorly written, even to the point of annoying.  In other games, you can just bail on Story Arcs and move on ... but this doesn't seem to be the case with STO.  ???

Sounds good. but who knows, theres so much hype,build up, rumors, and contreversy that surrounds games in development these days that its really hard to tell IF a product will be of good quality. thats why im reserving my self til it gets really close to beta/release to make a more informed speculation. I followed WAR for almost 2 years getting all excited and hyped up only to be let down (with my expiereince) in the end (for me at least). I just  HOPE that cryptic puts together a GOOD and FUN game, honestly STO does not need to be the BESTEST game in the world, to many developers trying to make the Bestest game and just face plant them selves.

Sounds not too bad. I am curious how the game will actually play. Will it be a mere space pew pew or more? Guess we have to see.

A forum is a place where people can discuss about different opinions. So what I don't get is, how people react offended when they come to a forum and then find... well different opinions. If a different opinion offends you, what are you even doing here?

A very postive direction in my opinion, just hope they have variable endings depending on how you complete them.

Never attribute to stupidity that which can be adequately explained by malice.

Wow, this sounds like a really cool single player game.

Where's MM part of this MMORPG?

Important facts:
1. Free to Play games are poorly made.
2. Casuals are not all idiots, but idiots call themselves casuals.
3. Great solo and group content are not mutually exclusive, but they suffer when one is shoved into the mold of the other. The same is true of PvP and PvE.
4. Community is more important than you think.

It sounds like the entire game content of 42 episodes will take about 40 hours to complete. Depending on how compelling the random content is, it sounds a little light on content.


Fourty hours is plenty to warant a box purchase and a play through, but not a subscription. Either way I'll buy the game, but I am seeing no reason to believe that it will retain players at all.

Uh-huh. That's a big issue for me, as well.
