Those of you that have been following the progress of Star Trek Online may know that the game is set some 30 years in the future from Nemesis.

The developers intend to fill in the gaps for every year from Nemesis to STO with a future history cribbed from the shows and novels and their own stuff.

Their first installment came out a couple of days ago.

Take a look at the future history of 2379-2380

Wasn't one of the BIG problems with the TNG-era was that the tech was insanely too advanced for adventuring. (Everything, literally, could be done for you with a voice command?) Why put this game 30 years PAST that period? Seems problematic.

Also, read the history... anyone of any importance for the next thirty years just HAPPENS to be a fan favorite character for the TNG - VOY shows. There's a shock.

Plus, as usual, the human race s unchanged, despite interactions with countles alien cultures, technologies and religions and philosiphies....

You'd expect at least some level of societial alteration.

This is supposed to bridge the universe we know with the Star Trek Online universe, which will rarely feature our "hero" characters.

Shouldn't this go in the Creativity forum with the other fan fiction? This reads a bit like the timeline we created for Renaissance. [Razz]

They've revealed some new ship designs. Looks like one of them is Sovvie Refit, but they keep acting like its an entirely new design.

To me, I'm not so much concerned with the fact that the NX-91001 looks a lot like a Sovereign.

My problem with it is, every time I look at it, I'm forced to mumble to myself, "Why? Why in the name of all that's holy would you put that fugly rollbar there?" [Big Grin]

What's new to me is that customization pic. If there's one thing I've learned from City of Heroes, it's that Cryptic is awesome at customization, and I'm betting that's just the tip of the iceberg at to what we can do.

That customization animation reminds me of Starship Creator but with better graphics. [Wink]

Out of curiosity, does anyone here have the slightest intention of playing this game?

I might check it out, but I'm not exactly looking to sink time and money into a black hole like a MMORPG...

It sounds like it'll be interesting to play for a while, but I've seen how my friends get sucked into WoW and I don't want to end up like that. It'll probably come down to how much money and free time I have when it comes out.
