    I have been following this game since I heard about it on IGN at the start of last year.

    I want to try before I buy though.

    The verdict is positive so far then?

    I'm tempted but my expectations of Space MMOs have been set rather high thanks to an extended time playing EvE, hopefully something can take my attention or I'll find myself playing WoW again.

    I played EVE a LOT
    but it wasnt exactly what everyone wants from a space MMO
    its VERY complex, its VERY much the thinking mans MMO :)

    That said, STO is a bit more arcady, not WoW arcady, but space combat is like Bridge commander, its real time, you roll and pitch to align your shields, whilst trying to hit the same side of the enemy to actually take down their shields in one place, torps hurt hull, phasers hurt shields, its a bit more actiony

    ground combat is nothing special, but its an MMO, when is it ever?

    Positive so far, although its very early days and the games still in beta (lots of bug fixing)
    I'll keep you posted

    You lose everything from the Beta once the game comes out don't you?
