How can they destroy something by adding to it? As LOC said, Paramount considers it to be "canon". That should be good enough for just about any Trekkie. I, for one, have a lot of faith in it. I hope it will succeed where others have failed time and time again. Let's face it, there hasn't been a good Star Trek game within the last 5 years. Star Trek: Legacy was an utter joke. Anyway, initial impressions seem to be good. That's definitely a good sign.
IMO the last good Star Trek game was Elite Force II. God I wish they'd make a 3 lol
As an avid EVE player, this will have to be REALLY good to move me over.
They are totally different games though. STO's space combat/exploration etc won't be anything like EVE's I can almost promise you that. Unless your specifically looking for something different of course...
Any speculations on a release date?
I wish EVE would get the FPS part that STO seems to have, instead of making it a standalone console-exclusive game
Oh the release date won't be until Q1/2 2010 I'm sure. They haven't even started closed beta testing it yet. My guess would be right around March or April next year. But that's just my guess. Remember, they've only really been working on the game a little over a year now.
