I am a huge fan of Star Trek. When asking the question “Am I a Star Trek or Star Wars?” I always fall to the Trek side. It’s not that I don’t like Star Wars, but when I think to how I think humanity would look in a couple hundred years I want to believe it will look more . . . Roddenberry.
So, imagine my joy when Star Trek Online was announced. Then imagine my disappointment when the reviews came in and they weren’t so great. Finally, imagine my optimism when they announced that Star Trek Online would be free to play starting January 17th (today).
Finally, imagine my surprise that in the game they’ve already announced the successor to the Sovereign-class Enterprise. That’s right; in the game there is a NCC-1701-F USS Enterprise.
Announced as the Odyssey-class, it was the submission from a fan for a contest from the game publisher. And if I may say, it’s easily just as good as anything made in the official cannon. Now, this isn’t a new thing; this happened in Summer 2011. However, now that the game is free to play I thought it might be worth pointing out the content they’ve been adding.
I’d also like to ask Paramount and CBS to make this ship cannon! It’s beautiful!
