I think I'm looking forward to this game most of all.

I agree, Pogger.

This games sounds -- in some ways -- very "Guild Wars-like" in its mechanics (which is a good thing, imo). I am really looking forward to playing STO.

Yep, been keeping my eye on this one too. I'm going to be truly torn between playing FFXIV and this, guess I'll just have to play both, no matter what.

Medics/Doctors? Sign me up!

I hope they employ alot of minigames for skills and not just rely on automatic skills for healing/rezing etc. It would be great if an mmo handles healing in a way that you are required to actually think about what you are doing and act accordingly instead of simply pushing a button and seeing the effect.

Alot of people love to heal but becoming healbot spammers has always been a problem both for healers and those that encounter healers. If an mmo changed the way healing works to require skill and thought then things could get very interesting!

That's why I picked Kinetics healing in CoH. The primary healing power requires you to target enemies and use them as the AoE target of your heal. Plus it can sometimes miss. Made healing a lot more engaging as there were a lot of "Oh S***" moments that broke up the monotony of spamming heals.

I'm looking forward to STO, but please keep Geko away from the development. His incompetent developing skills are the reason CoH's code is so hard to modify and change with the times. Please get someone who can think 3 steps ahead when making development decisions.
