It’s really curious (and I can’t be bothered to look up the reason) on why they didn’t use LCARs for the UI style on the modern ships. Normally the reason is licensing and Paramount, but they obviously got a license for the brand. Hmm…
I’ll go for that if my lifetime sub for STO gets me it for free, and yes i have a lifetime sub for a game that went free to play, 2 games actually that went free to play lol. and yes, i feel like a total schmuck 2x over
I also grew up during the 70’s and the next generation et al passed me by, but I love the new movie franchise and this game looks so much fun I guess I will be getting it. “Pity those who have no rift for they know not what they are missing” so the Old Chinese proverb goes
My problem with this is that according to all I’ve read and seen it’s pretty much mandatory to have a group MP session to get anything out of it. For single players, a modded Bridge Cmdr seems better minus the VR aspect.
You need to find a group of people who:
Are like-minded with you in play styles (serious/RP/casual/goofy)
Are into VR
Are into Star Trek
Are available during the times you’re available (a big issue unless you have a ton of friends or aren’t picky)
Maybe it’s me, but I think the number of people who will have access to a group like that (and by group it seems to be at least 3 if not 4+, forget 2) is not big enough.
Games that allow decent play for 1 or 2 in addition to 3+ do better.
