Yes, I bought it. And yes, it sucks. I thought it was going to be as bad as Bridge Commander. Turns out its as bad as Dominion Wars.

We can only hope mods make it better.

And that since it was obviously made for the 360, that it will be better on that.

I wasn't planning on getting it to begin with, since I didn't have high... er, well, any hopes for it to begin with. It had 2 big strikes against it: Trek's B&B-induced bad karma, and Consolitis™. The Trek franchise started suffering about a decade ago, and the more B&B got involved, the worse is seemed to become. 21st century Trek has just been disappointing (with a few noticeable exceptions), with the gaming industry following suit, due to the creative restrictions Paramount's licensing places on game developers (hence Activision's lawsuit).

Consolitis is a term I use for cut-rate production values and developer attitudes when it comes to console games. Traditionally, due to the wide technology gap between the two, PC games were pretty lavish and complex, and console games wound up simplistic and comparatively easy to make. PC's and consoles also traditionally represented rather different audiences, with the average console user just looking for quick entertainment and the average PC gamer looking for something deeper and more involved, so game developers would develop their stories accordingly. I know many of you will take exception to this view, but bear in mind that I'm talking about the average video game player. All of you are PC gamers like me, regardless of how much you may enjoy console games, and that puts your tastes ahead of the 'average'. ;)

Anyhow, I've noticed that many game developers have gotten used to just slapping out lower-quality games as if they were making them for older consoles, despite the closing of the tech gap between PCs and gaming boxes. It's following suit with the steady decline in the average Hollyweed production, with scripts made by committee rather than writing teams.

Barring a major revolution in the gaming industry, we will never see another commercially-produced KA, since many gaming houses are simply going with the lowest common denominator, and the constraints of the corporate mentality of the Trek franchise. Trek films and games are not likely to improve until the franchise is sold to a creative entity capable of actually developing stories without Trek's traditional creative constraints.

true true. they said it was going to be the best trek game yet, but they said the same thing about New Worlds and Shattered Universe, both of which sucked a$$.

I:ve played this for about an hour tonight and bleh. It's no KA and it's more like a starfleet command or dominion wars. The graphics are nice and pretty but the contols are clumsy. So far as I can tell you can't even configure the controls. Keep in mind I'm playing a warez copy so I have no manual.
The systems you can play are fairly roomy but the quick battle sucks. 4 ships to a team and 4 teams total.

Oh I took a screenie of a cool ship I liked. It's called a poseidon class and it's an enterprise era miranda.

Mine will be "here" shortly.
But im totally banking on the 360 version. The graphics will be better and easier to control.
The PC version will be best for mods. Someone will mod hte hell out of it and make it better.

the manual sux. pretty grafix. i'm tired of pros/cons to be honset, just like i'm tired of trying to like the game. i tell you one thing though, there are some sure enough psycho fanboys on the legacy forum. those cats are scary man, i bet they're carving "legacy forever" into their forheads with broken bottles.

meh, i dunno if it's the worst trek game made but it's not even in the top 10 best trek games.

The modders will no doubt fix the game.
I bet it plays far better on the 360 than on PC.

Well, I asked Santa to put it under the tree for me so I'll just have to see how it goes. Any game is subjective, some people will hate it and others will love it. I will reserve my opinion until I actually can play the game.
Beam this up!

That is my opinion as well; like the new content in World of Warcraft (allowing Horde to have paladins and Alliance to have shamans in the expansion), I said I wanted to try it before I knocked it. I'm in the process of trying it at the moment, and I love what I see so far.

Legacy looks good, but I hope - to me, anyway - there is more to it than the looks. I'm gonna try it out first before I decide whether to use it as a video game or as a drink coaster.
