Ah yes, release after the holidays when my work slows down, my checks likely smaller, and I've probably already gone through any games received at Christmas time. Sounds great to me! Also, the more time they've got to work on things, the better, plus hopefully the staff can have something resembling a reasonable winter holiday.

I was expecting it to be a lot sooner..oh well, by that time I'll probably be engrossed in SWTOR and my wallet much thinner.

@tepster But remember that it will be F2P, so you don't have to make your wallet even thinner to play it.

Me too, While I don't know how long I'll play TOR It's safe to say it will be longer than one month given I bought the Deluxe Digital version. If it was released before TOR I would have tried it, now I probably won't look at it until later in 2012 if its still alive by then and I also expect games like Secret World will be launching then anyway.

So, they're releasing just in time for the end of SWTOR's initial free month? Interesting....

Probably at Cryptic nobody ever heard of that obscure game.

How is Star Trek Online these days? I remember reading that it was kind of tedious and shallow when it came out; has it gotten any better?

Very much so, it's chalk and cheese between now and then. The best thing is, it is getting very much more 'Star Trek' as the months go by too. As I've always said, once you've customised your ship and uniforms to the particular period you like best, there's really no great reason (visually) not to believe you're playing an ever-so slightly futuristic version of your favourite Trek. (Except for visits to places full of other players, *then* it all gets a bit crazy) :D

Even at F2P, I'm not interested. I played it during beta, then bought the game at a discount and got 30 days of which I only played it for 5 days tops and that was just a few months ago. The space fights are good, but not enough to keep my interest for weeks/months/years on end. I don't think this game will do that great even after F2P. I'm sure many will try it, but the same thing will happen. Even if a game becomes F2P, does not mean it will be a success just based off that alone. It has to be worth the time you put into it.

I am glad to hear the games improving. The fans of the Star Trek IP deserve a great game. Lets hope things continue to look up

Hopefully they will continue to fix and improve things but the timing is really bad for release to F2P.

It will be *very* interesting to see how they are doing mid next year. I am a bit concerned considering with Perfect Wold is doing with Never Winter Nights how well STO will survive.

I really would like F2P STO to work out. I've never played STO, but I'd like to give it a shot. However the ground combat has zero appeal to me. Maybe when the other factions are playable i'll give it a go.
