The exciting prospect of Star Trek Online is now over. The developer of the game, Perpetual Entertainment, was recently purchased, and the new owners want to take the game in a new direction. That direction? Casual.
Now, do you know any Trek fans that are casual fans? Not I. Therefore, can you imagine a successful casual Trek game? I'll guess it's the same answer.
Unfortunately, most of the people working on the game have quit because they can see the stupidity. Oh well.
