After a brief moment of breathless excitement and deep scrutiny…...... I decided that brevity would be best. I wanted to post a link to it inside the forum to make it easier for Bridge Crew commentary. Thus:

If I understand your question, (which I think is, has Beta Testing begun)  ?????...... The answer is no because as of yet I do not think anyone has been notified.

I may not be able to post any pictures once beta testing begins. It would depend on what Disruptorbeam stipulates if I am one of the chosen testers. I made the following pledge in an earlier thread when I made my initial request to be a tester and I will stand by it. ( unless they allow me to deviate from the pledge and post some pictures ).  smile

Here is my pledge if selected:
I will report my findings in a professional and objective manner.
I will not publicly trash the game and will diligently support Disruptobeam in its efforts.
I will assist in determining what works well and what does not.
I will give the developers and support staff an opportunity to resolve problems.
I will not reveal things that the development team considers confidential.

Game looks great so far. Looking forward to more info and see more game footage of other areas of the game we haven’t seen yet.

Interesting…

Is travel between systems instantaneous in Real Life time, or was this merely the demo travel time had been reduced to near zero?

Was it actually possible to make it to DS9 before Worf?  Was it truly a case of looking at your crew and a real life time lapse that Worf got there first?  Or maybe the starship’s speed that you are using was a component?

Bartender Locutus actually achieved a positive bonus?  It would seem that filling each duty station on a ship will be at least marginally helpful, so dumping any old character in a spot will be a good idea. 

Keeping with the 10 Forward Bar Tender example, what if instead of a single category to receive a bonus, that it was multiple.  Guinan in 10 Forward would give +15% to morale, +10% command(she was an advisor to Picard afterall).  Quark as a bartender would give +10 to morale, but -2% to security? because he always has his schemes that cause trouble.  Locutus as bar tender could be -8% to morale because he is a terrible bar tender and conversationalist, but +2% to command, and +2% to security because you never have to worry about the crew getting into a bar fight because no one goes to the bar?  This way the captain(player) would need to consider the tradeoffs.  “Do I really need that boost to morale?  Or is the downgrade in security too steep to sign on Quark as bar tender?”

Did anyone else catch the hint as to where a pay wall is going to go?  “Successfully completing each path could lead to a big prize.  Maybe this one section will require Dr Pulaski to go down a particular path…”  That’s fine, DisruptorBeam deserves to make money, and it won’t prevent anyone from “winning” the game, there will just be “encouragement” to buy crew members.

I heard him say that one of the crew was tired, so another less capable crew member had to take over.  Was that just editorializing in his commentary, or are we going to see our crew have a recharge time where they are less effective the longer we use them, and that this will be the time delay in slowing play down for everyone?  That would bring another gold pressed latinum decision for players, Do I speed up the recharge of Archer for better success, continue on using Data with a lower chance of success, or wait 40 minutes for Archer to recuperate?

That statement is not correct…....I HAVE NOT BEEN CHOSEN TO BE ONE OF THE TESTERS…........YET cool smile I do not think anyone has been invited yet. ......I think you may possibly have mis-understood something I’ve stated, but you have an opportunity to be a tester by joining the Bridge crew, .................which you have already done…........ so fear not.

Let’s try to re-focus and get this thread back on track, smile and about the awesomeness of the latest extended video of the game demo:

@HTower - nice breakdown of possible ‘premium’ add-ins. I also wondered about L o’Borg getting any kind of buff as a bartender.

But it’s a demo and definitely alpha - even the Exec said it was already looking old to him. I’m having a great time in Justice Phase of GoTA, so I’m happily occupied while waiting for STT to start their beta. Anyone else who’s chomping at the bit, maybe check out DB’s other game and suss their ‘style’. Might help in the long run.

One concern I’ve got is that slot-machine RNG set-up. The newest expansion of GoTA is a major pay-to-win RNG crap shoot that has a lot of long-time players shaking their heads and leaving it alone. I’m really praying that STT won’t just be a larger version of GoTA’s ‘Tales’, but with branches. Shan? Any joy you can give me wd be appreciated.

It looks fun but I hope they work on those ship models. They feel a bit….. Off. Other then that, it’s looking to be fun and hits all the notes Star Trek online doesn’t.

Just to confirm that beta testing has not yet begun and we’re a few months away from that. You guys will know when we’re starting testing.

Cap Denslog - thanks for starting this thread! I just came in to do that and saw you’d already done it… yay!

cheese
