'To Boldly Go Where No Man Has Gone Before...'
Star Trek Online is the first Star Trek themed online game. It's a MMORPG that features both ground and space combat and fully customizable characters and ships. STO is a free-to-play MMO and can be downloaded from the Star Trek Online website
Star Trek Online was created by Atari and Cryptic Studios. In 2011, Atari sold Cryptic Studios and the title was then bought by Perfect World Entertainment Studios, a large MMO developer. Cryptic still creates the updates for the game, where as PWE calls the shots. In turn, STO has turned into a free-to-play MMO. In the past, it was a membership only MMO. Today, memberships can still be purchased to give the player benefits like extra character slots, free ships, and a monthly stipend of 500 ZEN, which ZEN is the online cash utilized by PWE.
ZEN can be bought on a ratio of 100 ZEN = $1 and can be used in any PWE game. In STO, ZEN can purchase exclusive ships, extra character slots, special items, and even the opportunity to respec your stats.
STO has 50 levels, and a tutorial that will teach you how to play the game. At each level is a mission you can play which grants a large amount of EXP towards your next level. That EXP can be used to increase your character's stats and the stats of your bridge officers. Bridge officers are used to assist you in ground combat, and give your ships buffs and abilities in space.
There's alot to say about this game, and there will be different pages explaining the different aspects of the game.
