Default Star Trek Online

I pre-ordered my copy today, and while I normally am incredibly paranoid of MMOs-- i had a roommate who flunked out of school playing WOW-- I'm pretty stoked about Star Trek coming online. Anyone else pre-ordered or planning on playing when it comes out next week?

I just spent the last fourteen hours playing the beta... it's everything I've always wanted from a Star Trek game. Fly around, blow stuff up, be able to go on away missions, and have a choice of ships to control...not just be limited to a Galaxy-class ship.

Based on your review I'm going to get it.

Quote:
Star Trekkin' across the universe,
On the Starship Milfhunter under Captain Jez.
Star Trekkin' across the universe,
Only going forward 'cause we can't find reverse.

Lt. Uhura, report.
There's Klingons on the starboard bow, starboard bow, starboard bow;
there's Klingons on the starboard bow, starboard bow, Jez.

Analysis, Mr. Spock.
It's life, Jez, but not as we know it, not as we know it, not as we know it;
it's life, Jez, but not as we know it, not as we know it, Captain.

Starship Captain, Jezzie Jezlad:
Ah! We come in peace, shoot to kill, shoot to kill, shoot to kill;
we come in peace, shoot to kill, shoot to kill, men.

They just dispensed with the whole "Let's all be one big happy dysfunctional family" premise, and embraced the fact that everybody knows the Federation's "science vessels" are obnoxiously good warships. The game's set in the "primary timeline"-- not the new one that the most recent movie created. However, it does follow the events that made the movie timeline possible-- Romulus is destroyed, Spock went back in time, etc. One of those odd Star Trek timeline things that's best not to think too much about.

But anyway, it's set in 2409, which is 30 years after Voyager takes place. It's got the classic Star Trek feel, but it's completely new, as well. The Dominion is gearing up to make a return, the Cardassians and the Romulans are rebuilding their strength, the Klingons are at war with the Federation again, and there's a new Borg invasion to contend with. There's a sprinkling of the science and diplomatic missions in there-- it wouldn't be Star Trek without them-- but mostly, it's the USS You-name-your-ship vs. the galaxy.

Which reminds me-- if enough people are interested, we can form a Heresy Online fleet (guild.) The game supports custom fleet logos, so we could put the Heresy Online logo onto ships.

That'd be awesome, so US and Europeans are all the same servers?
