Summary: I'm a big Star Trek fan so I was all over this. It was my first MMO to be part of the Beta testing and I was very excited about this game. The graphics for the game are excellent, but I have found game play to be very, well, repetitive is the best word I can think of. There's a story line, but all but maybe 3 missions is pretty much "if it moves, kill it" missions.
Summary: I noticed a lot of the reviews on here were about a month or so after the release of the game and decided to give it a bit of an update. I know I wrote a lot so here's a "Too Long; Didn't Read": Don't buy it, especially if you're hoping the game will make some dramatic improvement. It won't. I've seen all of their improvements thus far and when you quantify it all, it really doesn't add up to much.
4.99 - 9.99 is still way too much for this garbage

Summary: 4.99 - 9.99 is still way too much for this garbage this game tries really hard to be a good game but fails if your looking for space battles play EvE online if your looking for ground type battles play anything else (other than FF online) this game could have been way epic but as all the other star trek games unless your a fan boy stay away from this game.
Summary: First, I have been a fan of Star Trek since the original series. Yet I am still willing to allow the developers some freedom to work with the material. But the developers in this case are lazy (this product was rushed...), and I seriously doubt their competence. I have been playing this game since closed beta (11+ months ago). And some of the same issues we had in beta, and at launch, are still here.
Summary: While I would not by any means call myself a diehard Trekkie, I have generally enjoyed the franchise- including quite a few older PC games. A friend recommended this game to me, and being quite sick of fantasy MMOs, I decided to give it a swing. Star Trek Online (STO) is a massive multi game, and has most of the typical elements present in such: levels, gear, crafting, PvP, quests, zones, customization, etc.
Summary: The game reeks of being incomplete even with the release of Season 2 content patch. In fact the content patch was an utterly worthless bug ridden pieces of junk that provided very little in the way of "content". A few new missions and raising the level cap. Bugs too numerous to mention and the patch did nothing to address the underlying problems with the game.
Summary: As a Star Trek fan since I watched the first episode broadcast in 1966, I had high hopes for this game. I've played games of all sort my entire life, and over the last few years spent quite a bit of time in World of Warcraft. Sadly, this game just didn't deliver for me. The graphics are not very good, and that was an initial disappointment that did not improve. There were bugs in the beginner training missions.
Pretty Much a Star Trek Fan's Worst Fears Come to Life

Summary: Imagine a Star Trek RPG where you have your own ship and crew and you travel the galaxy, exploring strange new world and seeking out new civilizations, involving yourself in first contact missions, talking to new species, fighting new enemies and feeling like anything could be over the next horizon. Now throw all that away, because instead we got a tired MMO. There is no real RPG here for fans of classic RPGs.
Summary: I had waited for this game since Perpetual began developing it years ago. I think when Cryptic picked this game up, unfortunately it sealed Star Trek Online's fate. Pros: 1.The ship combat isn't bad. Initially it is a lot of fun swapping out weapons and blowing up ships. 2.Decent amount of customization. This isn't that big of a selling point for me, but there are many uniforms and customizations available. 3.Some fun moments of homage to Star Trek nostalgia.
