The game has been out a while now, though as of January, 2012, it's free to play. There are a couple of extra features that can be purchased if people wish it, there are different price plans too, though, like stated, it's free for everyday general use.

I haven't played it yet, am downloading (24%) at the moment.

Just wondered really whether anyone else had touched on the game and tell me what they think about it. Share pictures, crews, ships ect. I have no idea how this works, though am sure I'll get somewhat involved.

I got an email earlier this week about it being free... and signed up right away. Only played it for a little while so far.

Sorry can't upload screenshots... that function hasn't worked for me for years.

I have been having a slight Video glitch where the faces are sometimes blacked out(Happens when I restart/load the game in the middle of a mission). Could be my video card doing it as it's a basic card.

You can't press 'Print Screen', paste into MSPaint, upload to ImageShack, and link it back here?!? :confused:

I never bothered with this game as it didn't appeal to me after Bridge Commander. :)

I recently decided to try the game out... Not as bad as I was expecting it to be, but not the best game out there.

[QUOTE=SuperSmeg;5604161]I never bothered with this game as it didn't appeal to me after Bridge Commander.

Bridge Commander (as far as I know) is, much alike Armada 2 and Legacy, dying or dead. STO looks to be the next big thing for Trek fans.

I would agree with this to be fair.

[QUOTE=Admiral Antilles;5604227]Hmm... Maybe I should revive my old account if its free now.

Sounds like a splendid idea.

Can't go passing on a freebie now, can we? =p

Anyway, first up, my ship; the USS Equinox. I wrongly thought that we could pick a ship to start out with, rather than everyone defaulting to the Centaur Type. Suffice to say, having the ability to tweak the design helped. I had hoped to start out in a Nova Class (hence my chosen name):

And secondly, some of my crew. There are five people here, I only actually own three of them (the two Andorians and the Trill). The other two are random security guards that were issued to me for the mission. Again, I seem to have jumped the gun with my crew too. I was under the misguided impression that we created a bridge crew for ourselves, I started out with an Andorian only (to later find out) that you only create your main character. The rest you acquire as you play through the game:

You've have to excuse my Female Andorian, she was having a funny five minutes and turned her back on the camera. So very rude.

PS: Does anyone know just how the hell Dilithium is suppose to be acquired on this game? I'm eager to buy a new ship, but I need Dilithium to do so, and I can't seem to find any. I've done a whole bunch of missions, haven't got given any, and I can't find anywhere to buy it in-game (save using real money).

Yeah, I'm curious about that myself... I'm sick of having a puny little ship that can't handle a real battle... Does well with the weakling beginner mission battles, but other than that, it's pretty shitty.

I'll get some screenies of my ship and current crew later. :D

Had to switch to windowed mode to get the screenshots... Printscreen while in fullscreenmode resulted in a solid black image for some reason. :/

My ship, the Phobos:

Also came across a weird bug after switching to Windowed mode:

I'm just going to pretend that you never typed that. :mad:
