Star Trek Online is set to be the first major MMO launch of the new year, with a current scheduled release date of February 2nd, 2010, but should you pre-order? That all depends on whether the goodies the various participating retailers are offering are tempting enough for you!
Don't feel like digging them up? No problem! Atari is offering a breakdown of all the pre-order bonuses available at various retailers. Check them out below:
GameStop customers receive the ability to command the exclusive and always classic USS Enterprise from Star Trek The Original Series.
Best Buy is offering their customers a fun in-game pet. As a Federation Captain, players own a famed Tribble of Star Trek lore that will accompany them on their travels into the final frontier. As a Klingon commander, players control the boar-like Targ, a beast found on the Klingon home world of Qo'noS.
Amazon is offering an exclusive "Liberated Borg" Bridge Officer. This bridge officer, who comes with unique nanotechnology augmentations, assists in missions and gains experience as the player does.

Target customers who pre-order Star Trek Online receive a unique ground weapon: a TR-116. This rare projectile weapon is used in dampening fields and other challenging environments; it is also modified with a micro-transporter which beams the fired projectiles to targets at close range so that a user can fire without a direct line of site.
Direct2Drive customers receive an exclusive Multi-Spatial Personal Shield. This advanced personal shield system is based on Borg technology, which constantly regenerates itself and the health of its wearer.
STEAM is offering customers Chromodynamic Armor. This armor is based on technology brought back from the Delta Quadrant by U.S.S. Voyager improves the damage and critical hits of energy weapons.
GameStop, BestBuy, and Amazon clearly have the most interesting bonuses. Hmm, command the USS Enterprise, receive a Tribble pet, or run alongside a Borg? Choices, choices!
