Jesus fuck....that's lowest common denominator marketing at it's finest.
Expect that as an ad in Maxim- right along ads for Axe bodyspray and other crap marketed to teenage boys.

How illogical.

Pictures of Vulcan chicks with breasts as large as their heads wearing an unzipped wet-suit is not about logic.

Oh, I agree. I was commenting about the picture, not about your comment. [Wink]

So I picked up the issue of PC Gamer today.

The article itself chronicles the two writers playing through an "episode", the Star Trek Online equivalent of a quest or mission. It's a time-travel episode involving the Guardian of Forever, Miral Paris, and some old Klingon guy out to alter history. Sounds pretty good.

The pictures, though... Wow.

Thus far, my opinion on the STO ships has ranged from thinking them fugly to thinking them unimaginative. Not anymore. There's a picture at the top of Page 45 showing six possible ways to customize a Constellation by swapping out saucers, pylons, and nacelles. I gotta say it: each one of the variants is gorgeous.

Page 49 has some artwork of four sample crewmembers. The second character, a doctor, is wearing a uniform variant that looks very much like it might be a precursor to 29th Century uniforms.

The bottom of Pages 50 and 51 has models of various species from the game. Of particular note is a Bajoran wearing a mirror universe uniform, and a Gorn that looks way better than the one from Enterprise.

Wow, that magazine needs a copyeditor bad. Not only did they misspell "nacelles", but they also should've said Cheyenne. [Wink]

Still, those pics are awesome. I just might end up checking out this game.

I'd go with the middle-left saucer and the bottom-left nacelles.

What's up with the diffrent color striping and panels on those- one has red stuff, another green?

User customization, surely. The top-left and bottom-left saucers are the same design, but with different markings. It's a good idea, I'd jump at the chance to design an Excelsior with all the cutesy turquoise stripes turned black or removed altogether.
