Quote:
“Cheyenne had a top team developing a persistent online shooter when the economy went belly up, and our funding dried up,” Resistance producer Kathryn Dutchin told GateWorld. ” Since Worlds, at that time, was at its peak burn, and very expensive, and we were also facing some of our toughest technical challenges with that title, to make it robust and ready for market, it became impossible to sustain the team, and other studios as well.”


The shooter was a secret side-project, in other words, which had to be shelved in favor of Stargate Worlds when the studio lost much of its funding.


But because SGR is not as enormous a project as the MMO, it could be finished and sent into the market more quickly — resulting in a much-needed revenue stream in an industry taxed by the global economic crisis.


“Since we are privately funded, our investment group felt very strongly that a title be released within a short time frame,” Dutchin said. “But with funding dropped so low, there was no way at that time to finish Stargate Worlds within that time frame, in any capacity that would serve the fans and the game well. So, building and releasing Stargate Resistance became the best option for Cheyenne, and its investors, to ride out the economic wave, and keep Stargate Worlds on the top tier it deserves.

“Over the last months working on Resistance, the team has had enormous fun, and we’re very excited about this title. I know all teams say that … but you should come visit us at play-test time! We’re no less anxious to finish Worlds, but this title has been a blast, and we’re excited to see it becoming ready to ship.”

Well I've been playing the game for a month, and it's about as star trek as they can make a mmo without making it boring.

"Dear Cryptic Studios, my name is Cindy and i'm 12 years old. Upon opening my box which was labeled with "Star Trek Online" i was presented with (1) a used copy of "Barbie bangs Bruno, the pony", (2) a trading card labeled "Tribbles with nibbels" and a manual for xerox printer. I was very surprised, yay! And guess what, my dad was also surprised right after we installed the Barbie-Disc. Bruno did some strange thing, but then Daddy told me, that Bruno was just trying to push Barbie across the street so she could go shopping. Well, because i'm too young to go shopping, Daddy took the disc away. The trading card is funny and the manual is...very manual. But, i have to ask: Where's the chocolate?"
They can't do that in the USA as Kinder Surprise Eggs are banned there - I guess American children are libel to eat the toy thinking it's a crunchy centre.

As far as STnline is concerned, I'll have to wait to see reviews or some more trusted comments from Rage players as I've been MMO free for so long now, I don't want to jump on board unless I know it's not going to be totally awful (and given Star Trek, it really has a terrible reputation for crossover quality. Some TV episodes have been good, but the majority of everything else has left much to be desired).

Also, is this the Next Generation universe, or the recent movie universe? I expect it's the former?

It's set in the prime universe not the spin-off, it's set about 40 years after Star Trek Nemesis.

Does it have contrived scenarios where you'll bump into Picard, Jordi and Data?

I would not pre-purchase ST given what they did to Champions Online. I'd wait until it has been out for a month, or 6.

More info please! Can you see yourself playing it for a long period of time, or is it a boring grindfest after a month? Is the ground combat still poorly developed?

The ground combat is actually surprisingly good, and yes I can see my self playing this for a very long time.

There is no "grinding" to so to speak, missions are layed out like Episodes, for instance, one mission you have to locate the SS Azura, you warp into the system where it's located on the Astrometrics, fight off the orion pirates attacking the freighter, and then you beam aboard the ship, fight off the orion inside the ship, escort the survivors to the beam out point, and then fight off some reinforcements in space.

All episodes are pretty much a combination of ground/space gameplay, and there is some fantastic episodes later on in the game.

I don't want to spoil anything, but this game has so many things taken from Star Trek, it's not a EVE and never will be like EVE, but it's a damn fine game imo.

To contrast what Cartigan said, I hated Champions online but I love STO.

Question about space combat- in some of the videos it resembled Armada where ships moved around fast and looked like toys. It is like that here, or does it have more of a Bridge Commander feel where the big ships turn and react slowly?

The ships only turn fast if you use a evasive maneuver, and it has a cooldown otherwise they don't turn that fast, depends on the impulse engines your ship has, and the ship you're flying too.

How does PvP work? Can you be on a mission and then get attacked by player Klingons, or do you have to elect to play it? You probably don't have an answer for this yet, but any idea what the endgame is supposed to be like?

If it turns out anything like CO, anything said about the beta (even open-beta day before release) is not applicable to release.

Watching Nemesis I didn't feel like the writers had even watched the series. They didn't do just about anything right. I was scratching my head constantly at all of the implausible events that occurred in the movie. Frankly I am glad that was the last Next Generation movie, simply because they could do no further damage to it by releasing more terrible movies.

I think the Star Trek brand has simply gone down the ****ter since Gene Roddenberry died. Like even the last movie, it was exciting and all, but when you got down to it I felt like I was watching a Star Wars movie not Star Trek.

It's funny how people always go on about Gene Roddenberry, sure I love that he started Star Trek, but Gene Roddenberry when he was involved made some of the worst Star Trek films, and the worst TNG series.

They took a lot of control of Star Trek away from him when they made Wrath of Khan.

its funny how ppl dont see the brillance of gene roddenbury , how he brought interesting science fiction to the screen, the original series and TNG are far better than the 'projects where gene wasnt involved'..
wrath of khan, yeah it was good, but just a drop in the ocean of what gene has brought us..
spock, picard , data, the best characters from star trek came directly from gene roddenbury.. leonard nimoy (spock) and all old school trekers like myself have an undying respect for the brillance of gene roddenbury..
funny how some folks fall for special effects and violence as being a 'good movie'..

So...back on topic. Right now you can play Federation and Klingons, right? Do you think there are any plans down the road to make it so you can play Romulans or other races/factions?

Also, for those in the beta, how does the balance between the sides seem. Is everyone playing Federation or are there a decent amount of people playing Klingons. I have to admit, while I like Klingons, I think I'd have to play Federation since that's sort of the whole focus of Star Trek.

Imo, they will need to constantly update content for this game to have longevity. Even more-so than other mmo's. Allot of story-driven content to keep the masses interested. It will be interesting to see how the launch goes also.

While i'm a big Star Trek Fan, i'm a bit curious how some things are handled in this MMO. For instance, let's say there are 10.000 players (just a fantasy number), what's about the ships? Who's captain? Can you get an own ship, and if so, how is it controlled? Or are ships more of a transporter-thing? I must admit, that the ground-combat i've seen so far didn't impressed me. That aside, it might be a good game if they get it sorted out right.

How big is the client? I'd try to get into the beta, but if the client is like ~6 Gigs i'd stand no real chance to get it downloaded.

On a sidenote, someone told me he already got the US-Version of the game. Could this be true? I don't think so.

And thanks for your ingame-facts Sir-Baron.

As I understand it you're all captains with a ship.

That's why everything is instanced, and missions are all instanced, so either you play solo in a mission, or you can play with a group. Mission difficulty scales with the amount of players on the team.

I know some people don't like instances but for a game like this it's really needed.
