Yep, that Star Trek game is still happening, and a new trailer has surfaced, showing off some gameplay and in-game visuals. More or less, it's looking like a Mass Effect clone, and since anything substantial hasn't really be...
Star Trek Online may have just barely begun celebrating its third birthday with free spaceships and fan-made trailers, but Cryptic aren't about to stop trying to give people reasons to check out their free-to-play Trek t...

While it had been previously announced that the Gorn would be what Spock and Kirk get to shoot at in Digital Extremes' Star Trek, this isn't what I was expecting. Can you blame me? This game, due out early next year, picks u...
Remember when Cryptic and Perfect World told you about their upcoming "Season 6" update to Star Trek Online? No? Well, it's up now, they've got a trailer to tell you all about it. In case you can't load it, the update's pret...
It's kind of unfair to compare Star Trek to Star Wars 1313, and I know I'm only furthering the Star Wars vs. Star Trek rivalry, but there's no way I could not think about my hands-off LucasArts session. Whereas the Star Wars ...
I love your smile.
There are a lot of good antagonists in the Star Trek universe, most notably the Klingon Empire and the Borg Collective. But ever since William Shatner dodged polystyrene rocks being thrown by a man in a lizard suit, people ha...
Star Trek Online's episodic additions are one aspect of the game that's generally been done right, especially thanks to player feedback. The latest series, Season Six: Under Siege, is bringing a new story, new equipment and m...
Cryptic Studios informed Champions Online and Star Trek Online customers of a security breach today. Although Cryptic only just became aware of the breach, it actually happened in December 2010. Usernames, handles and encrypt...
The stigma of bad videogame tie-ins with movie franchises is very hard to overcome. Often rushed to coincide with the corresponding film's release, movie based games almost always suck. So you'll have to forgive me for initi...
Despite its rough development, back in the beginning of 2010 I really did have high hopes for Star Trek Online. Lots of customization, being able to fight the Borg, playing a Klingon, I was giddy with anticipation. Then it la...

Let's face it, Star Trek games have been a challenge for most developers. With many titles in the past that have tried endlessly to capture the universe in a way that can please the fans of the series, the team at K...
As you may have heard, The phaser-firing, starship-riding MMO Star Trek Online will be going free-to-play sometime this year, as did its Cryptic-developed cousin Champions Online. Of course, players both potent...

Digital Extremes' Star Trek takes place between the excellent 2009 film and the upcoming sequel. And, it sounds like it could be amazing. At least, Hollie sure was ecstatic when talking about the game in this interview and a...
This trailer is pretty good. Spocktacular, even. But it's also a trailer for a game tie-in for the Star Trek reboot movies. And the last time we saw a big-budget licensed title like this, it was Ubisoft's Avatar game. D...

If you were looking forward to playing Star Trek Online with a home console, I have some bad news. Confirmation came down today that the game has been canceled. Speaking to videogamer.com, Cryptic Games Executive Produce...
Contrary to popular belief, Star Trek isn't always about killing and violence and blowing up legions of hostile starships. Entire episodes of the various TV series can pass by without a single vaporization or bloody maiming. ...
World of Warcraft may be the biggest MMO around, but you don't have to take it on to succeed. Cryptic, the folks behind Star Trek Online, certainly feel that way. Said Executive Producer Craig Zinkievich: "We think we've m...
In a strange pairing, Del Taco and Atari have teamed up to promote Star Trek Online by giving away beta keys with a purchase. Buy a "Macho-sized" drink at Del Taco and you'll not only get a limited edition Star Trek cup, but ...

MMO Star Trek Online has been on my mind. I like its ideas, its concepts, some of its elements and the fiction its supposed to be pregnant with. Plus, I enjoyed my stint in Cryptic Studios other MMO, the colorful Champions On...
When Cryptic Studios thinks about Star Trek Online a year post-release, they’re not sure what they’ll see. Content in the long-term is not being planned. In a recent interview, I asked STO associate producer Velas...
