Inside Beta: A Three Hour Tour

Posted by Jon Wood on Dec 17, 2009  | Comments

Inside Beta: A Three Hour Tour -'s Chris Higgins writes this overview of his time in one of Cryptic's Star Trek Online Closed Beta play sessions, giving an overview of the first three hours of gameplay.

Ever since I first heard that Star Trek was going to be made into an MMORPG, I have been chomping at the bit to get into closed beta. I love Star Trek, not to the point I have my living room made up to look like a bridge but I enjoy the shows, movies, and lore. Needless to say when I was presented this opportunity to play closed beta I was all over it.

I have heard many game companies say that most players quit a game in the first 15 minutes. So when logging in I was thinking "How will Cryptic grab me by the seat of my pants and hold my interest?" It's a fairly simple question, and one that could easily be answered during my three hour play session. If they don't have me hooked by the time they turn off the servers for the night, they've failed.
