I am sure that names like Kirk and Spock will go quickly.
I dare any of you to sign up as "Luke Skywalker". It will cause much fun.

Would it?
Is it taken that seriously?
I've seen various WoW videos of obsessiveness.

I don't know much about these online games. Never really appealed to me.
I played City of Heroes and got an online comment about the heroine I created "This is supposed to be a family friendly game!" (which I found personally amusing considering the setting).

Really? Their FAQ says they still do not have a release date. I don't think they have even gotten to the beta yet, but I could be wrong.

The screens look nice but what about the game play, most of these online games have lame game play and are just basicly a big chat room that you have to pay for.

Also they posted a new vid on the main website. It shows the races you can make.

Yeah, game play is the issue for me.

To control an NPC crew might be good.

Could be bad if graphics choppy.

If good as EQ1 or WoW, that would be fun.

Well, by free I mean that you wouldn't need a subscription to play it. There might have been up-front costs, and they were considering using real money to purchase in-game items.

And, TomcatJosh... it's not going to be released this year. There is no release date, but mid-late 2010 is likely, or even later perhaps.
