STO isn't even in the same category/genre as EvE - other than "space" the two have nothing in common - so comparisons between the two don't really lead us anywhere. 

If you need a comparison, STO is far more analogous to WoW or EQ2, just in a different setting (and with a far more aggressive cash shop).

I'm not knocking the game, I quite enjoy it for what it is.  Ship battle is its best feature I think.

Agreed on the ship battle part, but honestly, can we call Star Trek an "explorers show"?  Mostly its interspecies politics.  Most discoveries come in the form of "how the politics of one species, while different than ours, is not better or worse than ours" or "how to use photon torpedoes to stabalize a dying sun".  The true discoveries you are talking about are actually very rare, with the exception of Voyager.  Unlike the other Star Trek series, Voyager was 100% exploration and discovery, since it was in the unexplored/unmapped Delta Quadrant (yes there was combat, but it had more exploration and discovery than almost all of the other series put together).



I prefered the episodes of epic battles personally.


I really enjoy the exploration aspect of star trek, but ..


Lets compare the opening to the new movie, with all that is going on.

With meeting Jimo the race of aliens.


I'm a combat type for Star Trek. Always liked the combat far more than science aspect. This is why I enjoy DS9's dominion wars era so much.

Since that is about the only new thing to go into STO in the last year...

Even "free", this game is a rip-off...
