Mmmm... I'm pretty sure that Goonswarm will have a presence in STO. Must be their fault 🙂

A ST goonsquad is ok because Star Wars has had a presence in MMO's for some time now and it will be nice to see how STO turns out. I want Cryptic to succeed because this will just fuel the space genre of games so the more success all of the developers have the more fun for us 🙂

Hope I get in the beta, I just didn't want to have to pre-order to get in.

Well went to bestbuy and picked up the pre-order box for $5 and i have my beta key. The 7.8GB client should be done downloading when I get home today so over the next few days I will give STO a spin and hopefully post some nice screenshots and give everyone my opinion. Is anyone else here in the beta that I could hook up with in the game?

Done last night I played about 30mins before Cryptic did some server patching 🙁

But I was able to at least make my character, which the character generation screen is very indepth and I spent like 40+ mins just tweaking my character looks. I went with creating my own race and didn't use the defaults. You will get to pick from 4 natural abilities if you create your own race if you choose other races modifiers are chosen for you and then you will be able to pick 1-2 more for a total of four.

I will be checking my directories tonight to see if the printscreen button is actually saving pics. And if so I will have a flood of them I will upload this weekend. I'll do my best to describe all areas and what I think about them. But also at Bestbuy you can still go in and buy the $5 pre-order box and there is no obligation to buy the full game 🙂

And for everyone use the torrent download MUCH quicker.

I was hoping to write a little something up this weekend. I have taken many screenshots and will try to display all aspects of the game that I could access or see and give my opinions on gameplay during the process. Patience, patience 🙂

To bad this game wasn't free. Either initially or monthly, that would have been awesome. Im probably one of the few people that's a ST fan, that wont be playing this game for the simple fact, I refuse to pay monthly fees for the privilege of playing a game I own. They could have easily made this puppy free, and still made a crap load of money off it.. And gotten 10x's the playerbase, and beat out WoW.
