A Holiday Story

 posted by: Myeerah on Tuesday, January 10 @ 12:14 am

Star Trek Online released a Holiday Story.

Stardate 77021.1
In the twenty years since the infamous Shinzon Affair, the United Federation of Planets' vision of intergalactic harmony has edged tantalizingly close to becoming a reality.

Negotiations with the Romulan Star Empire, at an impasse for more than a generation, have recently accelerated due to a series of unexpected concessions on the part of the Romulans. Though many within the Federation suspect their old foes are up to something, most see the breakthrough as the result of the galaxy-renowned diplomatic skills of a certain 94-year-old Terran Ambassador.

The Klingon Empire, once the Federation's greatest foe, is now one of their staunchest allies. Though some (notably the recently-restored House of Duras) rail against the reduced role of the Empire in the affairs of the galaxy, most Klingons believe the Federation to be an honorable (if somewhat thin-blooded) partner. Nowhere is this attitude more prevalent than in the acolytes of Miral Paris, the alleged Klingon 'kuvah'magh,' who have chosen to join Starfleet in the young prophet's footsteps.

 posted by: Myeerah on Tuesday, January 10 @ 12:14 am

Star Trek Online released a Development Update on December 23rd.

Here's a brief summary of the latest happenings within the STO development team:
The engineering and art teams have been working together to see how close we can get to photo-realistic, real time ship interior renders. They've started with the TNG era Galaxy class since it is so iconic and also happens to be the setting for at least one major hub. For this particular exercise, they modeling and rendering a hallway, turbolift, and the observation lounge and rendering it all in real-time with next-generation lighting & material effects. Their results are stunning. Once we've completed look development for our other two environment types (space & ground), we'll release some screenshots - figure sometime before summer...

Customer Survey Results

 posted by: Myeerah on Monday, December 5 @ 11:19 am

Star Trek Online has released the results from Customer Survey done my Nielson.

In September 2005 we contracted with Nielsen Media Research to conducted an extensive survey in order to learn more about our opportunity, characterize our target audience, and test specific design decisions. Using web-ads placed on sites oriented towards MMO and PC gamers, Nielsen selected over 600 active gamers who expressed interest in both Star Trek and MMOs. They then used additional filter questions sorted participants into three groups of about 200 each:

MMO gamers: Those who play MMOs frequently with various levels of Star Trek enthusiasm.
Star Trek enthusiasts: Those who expressed a high level of interest in Star Trek and had watched several series and many episodes.
Gamers: Those with at least a minimal interest in Star Trek and MMOs who don't fall into the MMO or Star Trek enthusiast categories.
The purpose of selecting people who fit into one of these three groups was to ensure that we were getting feedback from people who might be interested in Star Trek Online and to understand our opportunity within various target audiences. We also wanted to ensure that we were hearing from people beyond those that identify themselves as Star Trek enthusiasts since we assume their opinion is under represented within the existing Star Trek Online community forums.

We asked this sample of our potential audience over fifty questions that covered everything from general game playing habits to demographic data, with a focus on MMO preferences and feature guidance. Below I'll cover some of the highlights from the results.


To see the results and an explanation, check out the Results @ the Star Trek Online Site.
