Where to begin?
This IS a good game, however barely so nowadays. It has potential for a lot more... The "STAR TREK" feel and appeal is fading due to the "pew pew" "shiny pretty lights" mentality that plagues this game.
It's STILL a nice game though. Only hampered by the greedy little paws of the publisher.
Should you want to play at average level... PAY TO WIN. Should you want to PVP you guessed it... PAY TO WIN. Research is nice, personel system very well designed; BUT... once again... PAY TO WIN.
The saddest part is that iconic ships and characters, races, tactics etc. are replaced by "Cash Grabs" at the Zen Store. EVERYTHING "Star Trek" is being slowly replaced with "Cash Grab" versions of the originals that are forced upon you to get or simply "GTFO NOOB" (as the "ELITE" use to say in "ELITE" private chat channels).
By the way, the "ELITE" of this game are only spoiled rich kiddies that want to "pew pew moar, moar madafak moar!" where the most dollars win the fight.
It still has uses for smart play versus pew pew, for example sensor jams, mines, tractor beams, disabling beams and cloak ambush. But it's depressing seeing it more as a pew pew for the kiddos than a real Star Trek simulation.
It's slowly transforming itself from a potentially a great game into a cash cow. And it's sad to see a bunch of rich spoiled brats one-shooting everything instead of watching outmanouvers, smart play and skill from folks.
Community-wise, it has very nice people mostly and it's the strong part of this game. Helpful and fun fleets (guilds) out there and really friendly folks everywhere... HOWEVER BE VERY CAREFUL because there is a very nasty and toxic minority too between the political epeens, sexist, nationalistic, holier than thou, immature, femi-nazis and the like; not to mention scam baiting...but these are rare yet, thank the All Maker.
Better play it now and enjoy what you can (BECAUSE IT IS STILL NICE THOUGH) before it get's blown to "cash cow" pieces all over the Galaxy... A shame isn't it?
