Become part of Star Trek

In Star Trek Online, the Star Trek universe will appear for the first time on a truly massive scale. In this massively multiplayer online game from Cryptic Studios, players can pioneer their own destiny as Captain of a Federation starship. Or, they can become a Klingon Warlord and expand the Empire to the far reaches of the galaxy. Players will have the opportunity to visit iconic locations from the popular Star Trek fiction, reach out to unexplored star systems, and make contact with new alien species. With Episode Missions, every moment spent playing Star Trek Online will feel like a new Star Trek episode in which you are the star. Immerse yourself in the future of the Trek universe as it moves into the 25th century: a time of shifting alliances and new discoveries.

Adventure in the Final Frontier

Explore strange new worlds and seek out new life and new civilizations in a vast, expanding universe. Establish contact with new races, discover resources and uncover mysteries that will influence Star Trek's future. In 2409, Star Trek Online exists in a timeframe beyond even the latest movies, so everything you experience will be brand new, but still based on all the fiction you love.

You Are the Captain

Star Trek Online will be the first AAA MMO to feature space and ground combat at launch. Missions will take you and your friends into the depths of space, across exotic planets, and even inside starships! As the Captain of your very own ship, it's up to you to lead your crew on missions that span a number of locations. You call the shots, no matter where you are. When you're in space, you direct the action - be it in the middle of a high-tension battle, where you can maneuver in 3-D space and fire a vast array of weaponry at your enemies, or as you enter warp to explore parts of the galaxy never before documented. On the ground, you lead your away team across exciting terrain, interacting with allies and battling enemies. Every Captain commands five subordinates on the ground, all of which can be directed to act in any manner you choose. Can you lead them safely through dangerous locales?

Total Customization

Using Cryptic’s Total Customization technology, every ship you command can be customized by you, from its color to its construction. Your ship will retain a Star Trek "feel," but it will also represent your style. What’s more, anyone can create their own species in Star Trek Online, meaning you can tell your own story about how you came to be in the galaxy. Leave your mark on the Star Trek universe!

Built by Veterans with You in Mind

Star Trek Online is being developed by Cryptic Studios, creators of the massively successful City of Heroes and City of Villains. It’s built on the Cryptic Engine, a core technology that means our designers can focus less on a game’s nuts and bolts and more on creating a game that captures Star Trek’s essence, guaranteeing that both longtime fans of Star Trek and people new to the universe will feel at home.

Join us in Star Trek Online, and boldly go where no one has gone before!

It’s a hard task to choose the best MMORPG games, the ones you should be playing right now or in the near future. But here at MMORPG Gate we want to tell you the names you must pay attention to; the games that you should play, because they’re some of the finest examples of their kind. This is a top that is constantly changing, so make sure to visit often. We all love on-line games, or else we wouldn’t be here in the first place, would we? Every day you come home from work or school, tired, bored, stressed, and what a better way to relax than a few hours spent in the world of your favorite MMORPG? You like your mighty paladin/mage/rogue/etc., doing some quests, hunting, maybe an instance or two. Everything is great until you suddenly crash into those annoying things that exist in very game: bugs, annoying people you know, that stuff that makes you throw the PC out the window.Official vs Private MMORPG servers - Ever since computer games rocked our world there were certain individuals out there who were not willing to pay for it. The industry tried by any means to stop them. They ranged from simple methods of CD check or unique serial numbers to more complicated methods like DRMs or items needed to finish the game which came along with the original game box. The more they tried, the less results they got. Games were and always will be pirated, unless of course, the perfect security system is invented. But when all seemed to be lost a hero came forth... the MMORPG!Real Life VS MMORPGs - Are MMORPG Games your life or do you prefer the real thing?Grinding: Love it or Hate it - Is grinding your favorite hobby in MMORPGs?Permanent death in MMORPGs - Is this a feature we should see more often?Canceled MMORPGs that would have rocked! - Some were canceled during the MMORPG beta stage, others didn't even get there
