Star Trek goes online......Nerds Lose Final Connection with Outside World

This is pretty old news, as far as gaming news goes, but just recently it was announced that the long-gestating Star Trek MMORPG is almost ready to boldly go active.

From the official website, here's a description of what the experience will be like:

Star Trek® Online is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game set in the Star Trek universe. Star Trek Online will be developed for both console and PC formats. Game features will include customizable ships and characters from the Klingon Empire and United Federation of Planets, ground, space and shipboard gameplay and unique options for player-generated content.

If they manage to deliver on all the potential of this game, it could make Warcraft and Age of Conan look like Super Mario Bros.

I will not be venturing into this world. You know why? Because if any fanbase out there can reach an intolerable level of snootiness, Trekkers are it. The first time I improperly conjugated a Klingon verb or miscalculated my antimatter ratio, I'd be cut to pieces by someone with the handle of CaptJLPicard759. My ego could not take that.
