Ah, right. It's kind of obvious when you think about it.

I'm in the Beta and without going into NDA territory, the ship combat part is great fun, and the away team sections need work. But they're modifying it constantly, so it could work out pretty well.

If nothing else, it'll be something new on the market.

Original Constitution-class (TV series, not the movie refit). The Galaxy and Soverign are both in the game as Cruisers (in traditional MMO terms, I guess that makes 'em tanks)

So to the guys that were in beta, is it worth getting? Been keeping an eye on this and am getting tempted!

This.

Also, how much is this game supposed to be when it comes out, and assuming it's pay per month, what's that supposed to be?
I'm considering getting back into WoW over the Summer, but if ST:O is out by then and isn't too expensive I might get into that instead.

Big Trek Fan here btw!

I haven't had a chance to play a lot of it, but I enjoyed what I did. It's different to other MMO's out there, so if nothing else it'll be a breath of fresh air.

I'd say don't dive in straight away. Waith until it's out a little while so that you cna guage peoples reactions to it.

And I'd say it;ll be the usual €15.00 a month type thing.

How much of a level grind is it?

I didn't find it much of a grind at all. Actually, come to think of it, I don't think there's really any grinding at all. You're given missions and you complete them. From what I played there isn't anything else to do so far. That's not to say it's lacking in content, more that I've been concentrating on the missions and haven't been worried about levelling.

Well closed Beta is finished now. Open Beta starts tomorrow (12th), 10:00am (PST), so 18:00 here. Of course the servers will melt and you won't be able to download the client due to traffic etc...

On the plus side, the end of closed Beta means the end of non-disclosure, so lots of STO info in the week ahead.

Apart from pre-ordering the game, I'm do not know of anyway to currently get an open Beta key. I'd expect pre-order to be the only way in the short term, and that closer to the end of the month, as release gets closer and closer, more and more websites will be giving them away.

There's a few sites that are offering access. Fileplanet sent me a link, but I'm not sure if you've to be a subscriber or anything. I'd say that if you look around you'll find a few here and there.
