Summary: The stuff with the ships is better than the usual MMO crap, but it doesn't redeem the weeks of in-game time required just to see what amounts to lackluster content. As a timecard, I guess, it functions perfectly.
Summary: As a lifelong Trek fan who has long since regreted seeing the saturation of the franchise with mediocre releases which seemed to nearly destroy a cultural classic, I was dissapointed to hear so much was wrong with this game when it was released nearly a year ago.
Summary: Game was tedious to install. Even though I ordered and installed with an optical disc, I still had to download 4+ GBs of updates and patches before I could even sign it to get started. Graphics are mediocre, looks a couple years outdated. The social aspect was simply not fun.
Summary: With as much hype given to this game it is sad to see it was so unfinished and lacking. With another dud game for the ST franchise I really hope Cryptic drops the attitude it's good enough and fixes this game or it will go the way of ST Legacy.
Summary: Bought this card to extend my in game time only to find out this was a fake time card. Contacted Atari and cryptic and they confirmed this, on the down side I have no way to try and return this to amazon so I'm out the money so beware if you buy a sto time card amazon could have a bogus stock of...
Summary: (Cons continued) The ship combat is totally unrealistic. No loops, 90deg breaks, immelmans, split-s, or other maneuvers seen in the show and older games can be made. So it turns into a continuous wagon wheel 3rd person shoot em up.
Pros: Well...um...Still looking for one, cause this AINT Star Trek!
Cons: Long time fans will not feel at home in this game. Cryptic decided to place this into he total full of garbage JJ Abrams timeline created for the new film. There are a few recognizable ships, but they took the really cheap and easy way out, making EVERYONE at war with the Federation. When the Sea...
Summary: buy it from game stop or Direct 2 drive...Newegg may be good with physical equipment, but they are sad with digital download.
Pros: Same piece of software you can buy anywhere else...
Cons: Web site says download and install today....but 4 hours after they bill your credit card you and 7 after you first order it the guy at customer service will tell you it will take 1-2 DAYS to receive your product.
Horrible. Don't buy it. DON'T! I know you want to...but don't.

Summary: The game is an utter rip off. The universe is stale, bland with absolutely nothing filling it up aside from randomized texture model planets and surrounding debris. There are no planets you can land on or explore really.
Summary: Kirk would shoot this game out of an airlock.
Pros: Space battles are the best part, shooting ships out of the sky is sadly the only part of this game you will enjoy. Unfortunately it gets repetitious after a week.
Cons: Where to start?! The horrifying boredom of the ground fights and soulless feel moving about space dock? Or is it the repetitive missions that don't immerse the player in the star trek world? Some aspects of the game have been implemented as an after thought. Example, the Klingon race wasn't intro...
