Star Trek Online warps onto gaming computers worldwide

Its here!

Pull out those spock ears and set your phasers on fun! The highly anticipated Star Trek Online for PC has entered open beta, bringing fans one step closer to playing in the final frontier. The open beta runs through January 26, 2010. Fans with valid open beta keys can explore the Star Trek universe and play the first-of-a-kind massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG).

Information about where to obtain open beta keys and where to download the open beta client can be found on the official Star Trek Online website at: http://www.startrekonline.com/openbeta.

"We are thrilled to give open beta access to fans as we draw nearer to the official release of Star Trek Online," said Craig Zinkievich, Executive Producer on Star Trek Online. "We are looking forward to the launch of our first-of-a-kind MMORPG with anticipation and excitement and we expect Star Trek Online to explode onto the scene, giving fans and gamers a Star Trek experience like no other."

Taking place in the year 2409, Star Trek Online boasts extraordinary features and lets fans both new and old experience unparalleled adventures. Players will have the opportunity to become a high ranking Starfleet officer and will participate in missions that will take them into the depths of space, across exotic planets and even inside other starships. Star Trek Online offers total customization, where every ship players command can be customized, from color to construction. Additionally, anyone can create their own species in Star Trek Online, as well as customize the look of their avatar's uniform.

Star Trek Online allows players to become a warrior in the Klingon Empire or join the Federation's esteemed Starfleet and explore a never-before-seen, completely interactive Star Trek universe.

I was lucky enough to get into the Beta a few weeks ago and just made my way past the initial grind. Log in tonight....have to start over again!

The upside, the graphics definitely seem better.

Downside? Still twitchy as ever when in third person mode and with everyone rushing into the beta they were crushing the servers....ugh. Couldn't even grind....others were snaking my tasks!

But any person who has come close to calling themselves a trekker or trekkie needs to give it a shot.
