Star Trek Online Interview

The Star Trek Online Interview on Skewed & Reviewed hears from Craig Zinkievich of Cryptic Studios to learn more about this MMORPG that will boldly go where no MMO game has gone before. Thwarting our dreams of playing as Captain Kirk, Craig's gameplay breakdown does not seem to indicate any time devoted to seducing alien hotties: "About fifty percent of your time will be spent in space, and the rest of the time you will be exploring planets, boarding other ships, visiting space stations or performing tasks aboard your own ship. We get you on the ships right away – you’ll fly your first ship during the tutorial, and from there the starships just get bigger and better."

You know, after seeing so many of these MMORPG startups that were doomed from the start, it is disappointing to add Star Trek to the list.

Star Trek is just a better movie than a game. Maybe they should take the silent hunter developers and see what they can do with it. Ship to ship combat has always been the high light of any trek game. But as time has shown you can't pilot a ship with a joystick, mouse, or keyboard withany real effect.

Any real combat simulation would be similar to a naval simulation and have limited niche appeal. Who know's, maybe someone can pull it off. Not this mmorpg though.

And just how fun is it going to be to go to work and stare at a screen all day waiting for a blip? There is no way you could have too many interesting positions on a ship.

Let's see,

Engineer (Healer)
Sensors (Nuker)
Weapons/Tactical (Tank)
Science Officer (Buffs)

Captain (fifth wheel)

dunno..
