Deacon is mine (original, I know). I'm enjoying the hell out of it! Very SFC but better. Space combat is very cool and beautifully done. Ground combat is simpler but still nicely done.

Hope to see ya'll there!

I still don't know how this works. LOL
When I tried to get on there was a message that they'd be down for 2 hours, starting...5 minutes ago. Just my luck! The foot based combat reminds me of KOTOR for some reason.
Also, discovered there is a screenshot function saved to a file in game. And if you use Xfire for comms/launcher/updates/video like I do, you can link it in now and have the usual functions available to you. I had to do it manually since it didn't locate the game, but that may be due to having the game on another drive partition.

You won't see the friends page unless you've logged into the account on top of the page, then it shows up at the url.

One thing I will say about ground combat is that ranged combat is actually ranged. If you try to charge straight in unsupported for melee like in KOTOR, SWG or Mass Effect you will die before you get there.

Fighting AI Klingons resulted in a couple of them standing off and engaging in ranged combat while a couple others would try to close to use melee. My Tactial bridge officer actually disintegrated a couple while they were trying to close with us in a couple different fights. Another thing is that your bridge officers are actually useful, even the generic redshirts. They don't go down easily and will use skills appropriately such as my Engineer BO automatically recharging the shields of any party members that are running low.


One day the West will fall. But if the Liberty for which we fight is taken up by the world then the West will not have failed.

Ah, got it to work.

So for the friends page, do you add your account name of your character name?

I got Setsuna, Raw Kryptonite, and Oystein. Everyone else they couldn't find the user name for.

In case it's account rather than character name, mine will be Deacon211.


Maybe we can get a SimHQ fleet going when that full game launches!

Cool! How do we access it in the game?

Also, is there anyone else that is having trouble finding all the artifacs in a system? I'm not sure if it's a bug or if they are just hidden in some corner of the map. I scan for them and it says they're there but no findy!

Yup, there is a message now saying it is down for emergency maintenance.

It blew up because I made a character named Sheridan and his ship is the Agamemnon.

Didn't even think about it, but noticed on the site that at the end of the beta everyone starts from scratch. Not going to put too much time into it. I like it from what I've seen though. I enjoyed Star Trek Legacy, and this is a little like that but without controlling a small fleet.

Just started playing STO Beta yesterday and so far it playing well, see some graphic glitches and some long loading times sometimes. But overall the game is playable. I would like to have better flight controls though. But customizations of ship/character are great. I will be writing a review of my experience soon, wonder if we will be able to play Klingon race during the beta?

Cryptics to offer lifetime subscriptions for Star Trek Online, and like with its other MMO Champions Online its a limited time offer.

There are, however, advantages to purchasing a lifetime sub other than monetary. You will get a playable Borg as a race, and two additional character slots all for $239.99.

I was reading about the lifetime offer. I like the game and give it a tentative thumbs up but won't be paying that much for a lifetime sub and playable Borg, instead I'll got with monthly for this game. I really hope we get more than 2 character slots at release because if they start charging for stuff like that I won't last long, Star Trek IP or not.
