Newbie questions.
Im new. I have never been a big star trek fan till the recent movie which I absolutley loved.
I did have a certain nostalgia from watching The Next Generation, and Star Trek: Voyager with my grandma as child. Never really followed them tho. But I have to say the new movies really just sparked a interest for me.

Ive been wanting to play a Space mmo in which I have a ship. I have avoided this one for some time now becuase of it reputation when it first came out and there after as a free to play game.

But now decided to go back after hearing it has had a lot of attention from the devs.

I played a bit the the tutorial. I liked somethings. Other not so much. The graphic engine itself seems fine. But the bland areas I was in kind bummed me out. The inside of the first ship was way dissapointing. I never new a captians bridge could look soo booring.


Anyways. My questions.

1) Is there a big player base? or am I just going to get bored playing by my self.

2) Does it get better? Will I go out into space and encounter thousands of other players? Does the visuals amp up? Does actual character combat get better?

3) How free is it? Is it like free but extreamly limited? Or pretty darn free except for cosmetics. Is it just a hug cash shop full of stat gear and pay to win?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Deebles,

i don't want to make big explanations, so my answers are just short:
1) There are! Perhaps more than sometimes wanted ;)

2) It's great! There are so much things to explore (missions, story, team playing against various enemies or other players, development of your own character and abilities and your ship(s))

3) It is the most f2p game i ever saw. You can buy ingame exchange with real money, but you must not. You can play all the missions completely free. You can convert a kind of ore (called Dilithium) that you can work for and change into this ingame exchange. Ok it takes time, but you can buy everything without real money, if you want.

I think you will explore the game for yourself. I just say: it's worth!
