Summary: I appreciate the timely manner & great price from the vendor for this product. If you play the game this is definitely worth considering for a purchase for the perks it allows. An added bonus surprise that wasn't mentioned was this particular edition had the Borg Eng BOFF. I wont say they all do but this did to my welcoming surprise. Thank you again!
Summary: Some may wonder, "What's the point of buying a boxed copy of this game, when it's free-to-play?" Well, there may not be much point to the standard edition anymore (except, of course, for the 30 free days of Gold membership), but as someone who's been playing STO since three days after launch, and who still loves the game, I have to say that the collector's edition is definitely worth it -- not for the game itself, of course, but for the extras it contains.
Summary: I paid about $12 for it and I got about that much in value from it when I registered it with Star Trek Online. You get some outfits, a Borg Bridge Officer, a real comm badge, a book with all kinds of concept art, you get bank space as well. Considering the game is free to play now, $12 sounds about right as far as what I would expect to pay for it. If you want some outfits and the Borg BOFF, go ahead and grab this.
Summary: I actually bought this for the red matter capacitor it comes with. I love the game!! This product came pretty fast, and was packed really well. If you are a fan of Star Trek Online, START PLAYING!! its free to play!
Summary: I am a big Star Trek fan, so my opinion of this game might be slightly tanted, but I think the game is great, I love all the uniforms that can be worn. They range from ones created for the games time line, to uniforms from all 4 series and the two mirror universes. The ship collection is pretty cool too, there are ships from all 4 series as well as many that are not. You can play as human, vulcan, andorian, Bajorin, Klingon, and several others.
Summary: Although I just bought the CE a few weeks ago, so far so good. The community (in-game) is nice. I stay away from the forums as they're pretty bad. A lot of people aren't happy with the upcoming transition to Free-2-play in Jan. 2012. So far however, I find the space combat a lot of fun and the ground combat, although pretty standard, is good. I enjoy getting new ships and seeing what I can equip them with. Lots of missions. Crafting is pretty straight forward.
Summary: One of the better thought out MMOs out there. The graphics are very nice. The combat system is a bit clunky on the ground, but overall it's an easy game to learn. The end game aspect is a bit lacking though.
