Important Aspects of the Franchise

Posted by Jon Wood on Nov 13, 2009  | Comments

Important Aspects of the Franchise - Managing Editor Jon Wood takes a look at the Star Trek franchise and identifies a number of elements that he would like to see replicated in Cryptic's Star Trek Online to help recapture the tone and feel of the IP.

Developing an MMORPG based on a popular, pre-existing intellectual property is a tricky business. There are many expectations that need to be met, and every fan of whatever franchise it is that you're basing your game on has a different opinion of what elements from the original need to be there.

Star Trek Online is certainly no exception to this rule. Star Trek fans, after all, have a reputation for being not only, well, fanatical about their franchise, but also extraordinarily picky about how their universe is presented. With that in mind, it's safe to say that there is absolutely no way that every single fan of Star Trek, let alone fans of the MMORPG genre as a whole, will be satisfied with whatever final product Cryptic Studios presents to its audience.
