    Just out of curiosity, what kind of gameplay would this involve? Like space combat or 3rd person or what?

    Originally it was going to be a traditional MMORPG (like EQ/SWG/WOW) with crews manning ships as teams, then it turned into each playing "being" thier own ship (like Pirates of the burning seas), but with traditional gameplay on planets/starbases.

    The rumor going around is that Cryptic (City of Heroes) is going to take over, which I consider a good thing since CoH has great coop gameplay, which is what Trek is all about IMHO

    It's a good thing it was halted, especially after they announced it was going to be a "casual" game and that they were going to do away with multi-person ships/guild ships. I hope the new developer goes back to that, as that was what was hyping me about the game. I've got PotBS to command my own ship, and if I want it in a space environment I'll go play EVE and be bored out of my mind... :o
