Press release

STAR TREK ONLINE CLOSED BETA TEST BEGINS OCTOBER 22

Los Gatos, CA (October 22, 2009) – Atari, one of the world’s most recognized videogame publishers, and Cryptic Studios, developers of Champions Online and Star Trek Online, announced today that Star Trek Online will enter its Closed Beta phase on October 22, 2009. The public will finally be able to log into Star Trek Online and go where no one has gone before.

"We’re pleased to begin sharing our addition to Star Trek’s legendary story with the public," said Craig Zinkievich, Executive Producer of Star Trek Online. "We know fans of Star Trek, and fans of MMOs, will be incredibly impressed by what they see when they play Star Trek Online.”

Star Trek Online boasts a combination of space and ground gameplay and for the first time ever, bringing to the table Cryptic’s penchant for unrivaled customization, players will be able to truly become a captain by designing a unique character and heavily customizing their own ships. In addition, gamers will be able to create their own unique alien races, outfit and captain a succession of ships throughout their careers, lead their own away teams in planetary exploration, and battle Klingons, Romulans, Cardassians and more.

Star Trek fans will soon be able to join Starfleet, defend the Federation and promote peace within the war torn Alpha Quadrant. Closed beta is a particularly exciting time during the development of a game; the Cryptic team of developers is looking forward to getting user feedback.

86. Spockish - October 22, 2009

Big question, does any one really have any content to say than trying to win a free game pass. Or is everyone acting like the Main Mass Media and just echo the key words of OPEN SAYS ME’.

I to would like to play for free, but with my disables from my Head Injury slow my reaction time so I will not use a slot that someone that is able to play video games well can get.

But I did have much fun playing my Atari 2600’s and Atari 800 computers.

All I can wish for is people worthy of the awarded gifts prove the greatness of the MMO.

87. Commander Crooner - October 22, 2009

Damn! I knew I spent too long reading the mostly blah comments in the previous article!!
