Why are so many people suddenly playing this?
I remember this barely scratching the top 100 on steam with around 1K players, today it peaked at 7,5. What's up?

Well it might be something with the movie just coming out and this being on the front page of steam as a free to play?

Legacy of Romulus expansion came out today

Yes, a huge expansion. I don't think it has any tie to the movie though. Besides being Star Trek that is.

It is also worth noting it's allways had a lot of players, just not that many playing it through steam.

They finally got around to doing what they should have had ready on launch day: Romulans. But don't worry, once everyone is done leveling to 50 they'll all get bored & leave again.

Legacy of Romulus looks nice... but extremely laggy on the first day as well as TOO MANY people on HOLD in the damnable LOGIN QUEUE... At one point after about 1 1/4 hours in line it was well over 20,000 people in the LOGIN QUEUE.

Took 1 1/2 hours to get in the game.

SO the 7,500 players at the peak time is not correct... it was well over 20,000!

People are back for the expansion, that's how it is for every MMO when a expansion is released.

because the new star trek movie is out ;)

I played this when it first came out and had bought the lifetime offer. I noticed when looking through the games stills and videos in the store that it only shows one or two sequences gameplay and none of those are ground combat.

Is the ground combat still as dire as I remember it?

This game is the Best and all Star Trek is a brilliant creation, series, game, philosophy, and all
rest.))

A balanced opinion from 'biogen' there. Anyone not working for Cryptic care to comment? ;-)

I hope that soon all the technical problems are solved.

It's still pretty bad. I noticed while in the Romulan missions, that there seems to be some improvement but how much could they possibly do? Oh well, I just play for the space combat anyways.

Rebel Romulan Chicks are hawt. All the intelegence and logic of a Vulcan plus all the passion of a Klingon.
