Back in the days when we were losing a lot of good souls to "World of Warcraft", I used to say to myself "Losers, there's so much in life to enjoy and so much to do to bring Free SW on every machine out there.." and promised myself that I'll never even try any MMORPG.
About a month back, Rene came over to me carrying a German game magazine and showed me a comparison of the upcoming MMORPGs based on Star Trek and Star Wars. Now I can resist all games but a chance to live the life of a Star-fleet officer? No way!
So I started playing Star Trek Online last month when it was still in beta and got into it. Soon I pre-ordered the game for amazon.co.uk and life-time subscription (that also allowed me to play a freed Borg character).
Now when I say "I got into it", I don't mean I am playing for hours and hours everyday. It means I play maximum 5 days a week and for 1-3 hours only. Anyway, here is a nice picture taken by Ekaterina while I'm fighting off a Gorn ship:
UPDATE: Forgot to mention that I have a key that should allow a month of playtime and I am willing give it out for free to a friend. :) So let me know if you want to try it out.
