Star Trek Online Borg Details, Trailer

Star Trek Online announces the Borg update, upcoming high-level episodes that will look to assimilate players of level 43 or higher. Word is: "Previously, the Borg were thought to be severely weakened by the actions the USS Voyager, as fans of the show will remember. But in 2409, the Borg have regained and surpassed much of their old strength, and Episodes in the Borg Update will add more substance to that portion of STO’s story. Players will eventually face off against the Borg Queen, the leader of the Collective, but the road to her lair is a very dangerous path." Here are some Borg screenshots and here is a Borg faction trailer, which is embedded below.

That's STO for you. I love that it's coated in Trek, but it's definitely missing something.

All these trailers seem to convey the same thing over and over again:

The aesthetic of the art design in star trek is completely gone. There's no sense of grandiose, the models are uninspired, the animations look like they're budget level, and it seems like the art team was too focused on things going "pew pew pew" and not focused enough on "boldly going where no one has gone before".

I have zero interest in the MMO. It seems to have taken everything that sucks from Star Trek and made a game from it. Maybe I'm biased, I'm one of the few who thought that Starfleet Command 2 was one of the greatest star trek games ever made (I'm an old starfleet battles fan, which is the only reason I enjoyed it). I just see none of the bits about Star Trek that I enjoy, and everything that I loathed.
