Star Trek Online Beta Available Now [Ready to Boldly Go Where No Other MMORPG Has Gone Before?]

Star Trek is always going to be a mirage for a lot of people. This particular Sci-Fi world has thousands of fans and the new Star Trek movies will definitely bring Star Trek back in our minds. In fact it looks like the franchise is going to further expand with Star Trek Online, a MMORPG game that should have been developed a long while ago.

Cryptic, creators of the game, is ready to launch the open beta of Star Trek Online. While it’s not the first MMORPG focused on space, it’s definitely going to be a pretty popular environment. If you have played or are still playing World of Warcraft, one of the most famous MMORPG ever conceived, then maybe a little space exploring could be the change of scenery you were looking for.

The open beta will be available to those of you that have already pre-ordered the game and will close on January 26. So if you love Captain Kirk and his faithful and very wise sidekick Mr. Spock, then you’ll certainly want in on the adventure.

We are thrilled to give open beta access to fans as we draw nearer to the official release of Star Trek Online.We are looking forward to the launch of our first-of-a-kind MMORPG with anticipation and excitement and we expect Star Trek Online to explode onto the scene, giving fans and gamers a Star Trek experience like no other.

Inside the game you’ll see a world set in the 25th century approximately 30 years after “Star Trek: Nemesis.” You’ll have your own ship and you’ll be able to choose between the United Federation of Planets or the Klingon Empire. What follows is pretty simple really: improve your ship, fight others, gather your friends and fight everyone else in order to keep the balance in the force… Wait, that’s supposed to happen in a different Star-related universe, but you get my drift.
