Star Trek Online: for when Star Trek reruns are not showing

If I had to start playing a space sim a few days ago, I’d probably go with the mature and ridiculously deep EVE Online, but the unforgiving learning curve is disturbing and I’d probably cry myself to sleep. I’m guessing that Star Trek Online is going to be a little more newbie-friendly. After all, they’re trying to pull a TV audience, not necessarily a gaming one. Star Trek games in the past have been interesting but generally not transcendent. The new video looks nice, and I love that not only will there be ship-to-ship battles and ground teams, but also boarding of ships with melee combat. How tight is that?

Anyhow, check out the new video and the screenshots.
