$15 dollars! $25 for CE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Lame!!!!

This looks great. Only Complaint I have is that main engineering is identical to the Tutorial mission with the Khitomer and the Romulan mission involving the devidians.

If ship interiors were really that spacious, then the Enterprise was really 725 metres long.

July 21, 2010 8:56 pm

@3..i agree. though ive always thought future ships should be 3 or so times larger than enterprise d or e with crews in the thousands, when i see this interior video all i can think is, damn that’s alot of carpet to lay…LOL

July 21, 2010 9:36 pm

Ship Interiors are great (something that should have been in the game at launch, along with many other things, but that’s another rant), but if there’s nothing to do in them, you see them once and never go back. Just like the bridges.

(The pitter patter of feet in that Ship Interiors video was insanely annoying.)

July 21, 2010 9:53 pm

Hey Cryptic — nice job stealing the “Shadow” ships from Babylon 5.

July 21, 2010 10:44 pm

Oh my god! ALL THE WAY from 45 to 51 as a level cap! .

6 whole levels, something any player can do within an hour of PVPing or two STF taskforces, is considered a major raise in the skillcap? Yea… right…

wow! that ship interiors vid was the most boring thin I’v ever seen!

Please tell me this game is better than that!

& why is the captain wearing red?

is this all post TNG?

Can you timewarp back to the TOS era & wear the correct, gold uniform?

that made me happy I have a Mac & can’t play

July 22, 2010 1:36 am

Wow, these ship interiors look pretty cool! I’ll love to explore them myself.

@8: Why the captain wears red <– You can choose the colours of your uniform as you want, e.g. if you want it gold, then make it gold.

Great game!

Supposedly the interiors are being delayed or so I heard. They’re pretty cool I guess.

@8 – you can customise your uniform. It is set post-TNG, but you can wear the TOS uniform (in whatever colour) or as seen from that video, the Wrath of Khan uniform

You missed the Interview with Dan Stahl –

July 22, 2010 5:55 am

Looks gorgeous, looks like “Babylon 5 on-line”. Trekkers are just well served.

I wish badly that i could play it, but my wife won´t allow me to play online, as I could get carried away with it. Rules of the house.

So, it means i´ll just have to replay “Star Trek: The Next Generation: A Final Unity”, that clever 1995 adventure game, all over again.

Gosh, how i´d love to see a off-line “Star Trek” game that plays like “Final Fantasy”. :/

The ship interiors are visually interesting, but they are totally out of scale to the characters.

July 22, 2010 7:20 am

Recently played the free trial and was bored out of my skull.
Looks like even after the update it still won’t be worth paying money for.

July 22, 2010 9:54 am

I think I’ll get a job on a starship. Looks like I just have to walk around a lot.

July 22, 2010 1:55 pm

Wow, those interiors see too large.. Did Starfleet reverse engineer the technology of a TARDIS?

July 22, 2010 5:08 pm

lol pew pew pew, zerg, pew pew pew, this isn’t star trek

Can someone create a Star Trek game that is like Final Unity? Thanks.

July 23, 2010 11:32 am

Boy that guy is rude! He bumps into crewmembers without even saying excuse me.


July 24, 2010 4:10 am

Hey! The Ogres are back again! And with the Undead, from the looks of it. :P

The ships are very Babylon 5.

All in all, it’s very far away from Trek.

July 26, 2010 12:08 pm

I thought the tyrant Molor was the fabled enemy of Kahless…

July 26, 2010 12:10 pm

^Nevermind, I was thinking of Fek’lhr not the Fek’lhri…
