Patrick Stewart has left Waiting for Godot in London, in fact the run came to an end a few months ago and although it's returning imminently there are a few cast changes including Roger Rees in place of Patrick Stewart who is said to be tied up with other things. How sad is it to know all that?! I don't even like the play...

I do hope that they'll incorporate something about this game in the Big Bang Theory as they showed the guys playing AoC and it's inconceivable that they wouldn't play Star Trek Online, not least from Sheldon's point of view given that the narration is by his absolute hero Leonard Nimoy!

While i truly enjoy listening to Nimoy, he wont get me to try this very unfinished MMO, STO has other glaring problems. The first and largest was the year and a half plus of wasted fighting in courts. The second, and result of what happened because of the delays is that the federation is the only fully playable race, the others are not near as close as the federation to being fully fleshed out, some are even referred to as "monster play" (klingons primarily) by the devs themselves, scary. Romulans were obliterated to make the "new and improved" timeline feasable, my take was the early release date.

The lack of major races complete and ready to play, the lack of space to explore (think instances here folks) to other race borders, and lack of a plausable storyline all point to one thing, a huge, unfinished game that will be patched to hell at release and for many months to add what should have already been in. All this information is available freely and posted on all new sites including STO's own forums.

This next quote is directly from the devs, and on the STO site from the last dev talk, heed it well. "We will be working hard to deliver everything all our fans want after release".

If that isnt eye opening i dont know what else is.

Yes the Klingon faction being PVP is a disappointment and I'm not buying into the whole "Klingon are warriors, PVP fits them" spin that's being put onto it, we all know it was really a question of remaining development time before launch. However, the more I see the more I like the way STO is turning out and I'm now excitedly awaiting launch (and after all of the recent new poor MMOs it now takes a lot to get me excited). So I'll happily command a Federation ship while waiting for the inevitable future Klingon PVE Expansion, and then the Romulan etc etc. The more I think about it these kind of expansions would be a huge improvement on the tired old "raises to the level cap" formula.

Back to the story at hand, Leonard Nimoy is so iconic and his voice so unmistakable he is an excellent choice.

Actually, Thain, if you read the time-line on the web-site, and if you note in the movie, Data downloaded his programming into B4, and eventually they recover that Data, bringing him back from his essential "death."

Heck, if Spock can die and come back, so can an android.
