updating now!

Since I have Mac, anything related to STO is useless. However, ST: IS looks, or in this case, sounds awesome. It has a mixture of TNG and DS9 to it.

I just recently started subscribing to STO again, after about 6 months of hiatus, and I have to say, I’m thoroughly impressed by the changes and how much BETTER the game is. Also, from all the upcoming changes to the game and additions, I’m really starting to see this game go from ok- to the only MMO I will STICK with. (I played everquest, city of heroes, planetside, and WOW but all for less than 3 months each) Good job to the devs for listening to complaints and really utilizing fan suggestions and ideas, they really are trying to make a fan oriented game. Thank god Craig Zinkevich is gone.

So I bought STO on a huge discount. Download it, fire it up. It says “server up.” I log in and it says “server down.” Twice this has happened. I don’t think I’m trying to get on when they’re upgrading. The times don’t seem right. Yet both times I haven’t been allowed on.

I love this game. Finally, I can be a part of the Star Trek multiverse.

* I meant STO, of course ;-)

#2 “Since I have Mac, anything related to STO is useless.”
You should know that there is an (unofficial) OSX wrapper for STO.

Star Trek Online is wonderful, it is getting better and better and it now has a noticablely larger game population.

Admirals… Essemble!

9. Boobface - February 25, 2011

I play STO on my mac and its fantastic!

10. Adam C - February 25, 2011

HAHAHA! Lets make weekly episodes that are exactly the same with different weak voice overs.

I made the mistake of re’subbing since beta 2 weeks ago.. ive played is for around 20mins… words cannot describe the lies and tears with STO

11. TJ Trek - February 25, 2011

Thanks to the Stoked guys for providing really solid information on STO. I can’t justify spending the money to play right now, but I’m wishing I could. It sounds like the initial run was crap, but that the guys at cryptic, really started to do their homework, listen to the fans/players, and build something that was wanted. Hats off to them.

@2. Gorn – February 24, 2011 “Since I have Mac, anything related to STO is useless.”

There’s an app for that…

…it’s called Windows ;-P

Seriously, though – so long as you’ve got a Mac with an Intel CPU, not PowerPC, then you can get BootCamp (if it isn’t pre-installed on your machine) for about $50 & Windows 7 Home Premium for $200.

Even if you do prefer Mac OS X, it seems worth it to me to be able to use Windows applications…

@10
None of the weeklies are the same at all…? I’ve played all 3 series I can’t see what you’re describing, they’re all pretty different.

14. Tuskin - February 28, 2011

To add on to my last post, this weeks episode actually had some Nostalgic music in it from TOS
