If you've played an MMO before, you already know everything you need to know about this game. All that's left is the Star Trek stuff.

Thanks for putting the info for the key at the end of an hour-long video.  All keys gone.

Posted by Jared

So this is how babby is formed! In a character creator.

I am sad that all the keys are gone.  But this said part one are we to expect something similar as with the matrix and see a bunch more of space.

Well then obviously you have only played one MMO before because every MMO is different and unique in its own way . And yes, there are a lot of similar things, but that doesn't mean once you know everything about one you know everything about them all. Thats like saying "just because I have played a Mario game I know everything about every 2D platformer". the only thing I learned about the actual game from this was the character creation is pretty good and there are ship sequences, but nothing specific like what Brad was doing at any point in the video.
 
Also, if you're correct, then what is the point of them even doing this because everyone who has played an MMO already knows everything about this game.

Well no Beta for me yet.  Thanks for the quick look even if it was full of badly remembered Star Trek tidbits.  I'm not going to correct all the mistakes because I don't want to care too much about this yet. :)

I believe what he is trying to say is that all the controls are the same as the usually are in most mmos. and you would know what brad was doing if you watched the video but i dont think brad knew what brad was doing so how could he explain it

Haha, the end was great. "Somebody pass the glow stick."
 
I wouldn't mind a mini Endurance Run of the Beta for this. 
 
I mean, it would end when the Beta does, but it'd be funny.

haha, Buckaroo Bonzai.  Great reference!

Missed it. If anyone got a key they won't use, send me a PM with the code.

The name of the video is quite indicative of its intended purpose. I'm sorry if "Set Phasers to Fun" gave the impression of a serious look at the game's gameplay features.

omg! that ship was not to scale!

Posted by Deusoma

BALLS! Didn't get a beta key. Oh well. :(

Posted by VisariLoyalist

fuck! all the keys are gone!

Great QL with a brilliantly buggy finale. I wonder if the guys submitted this video as part of a bug report?

All those Star Trek references brought back so many wonderful memories. Great job guys!

The thing that gave me the impression that they would play the game for the sake of giving people a look at the game and its features is the fact that they took the time to play it, record it, and put it on the site. Its not like they are going to record gameplay just for the sake of recording it and "having fun". 
 
Therefore, I'd like them to focus a little more on what there actually doing instead just talking randomly about things that aren't even happening on screen. If Vinny and Dave wanted to blab on about Star Trek episodes and movies then they should just record a mini podcast about it. But if they are going to explore the world of Star Trek Online, they should pay a little more attention to what they are actually playing.

Jeri ryan, 7 of 9,  was married to a senator. Her marraige broke up when her senator husband took her her to sex clubs and tried to get her to perform weird public sex acts. Yes, thats right. Normal sex with 7 of 9 was not enough for the guy. What a dick.

It seems a little way too much like Champions Online, for obvious reasons, good character creation, but i really find it lousy in other places, just some annoying interface design choices too, mainly in the items

Posted by John1912

Game actually looks pretty good.  They totally need a view point from the bridge.

Nice video :) Just a little slow when you was in space and didn't  use Full impulse speed ^^ (Pressing the ^ arrow over the speed thyngy)

Somebody needs to put techno music behind a loop of raising the roof among the lasers.

Posted by Irish87

As somebody who has no interest in Star Trek and has never seen a single movie or even episode, I must admit that this game has me interested. Alright, not interested as in I'm going full trekkie (sp?), but it doesn't look half bad. After living through Champions Online, however, I'm not very enamored by Cryptic.

THE LINE MUST BE DRAWN HEEYA!!!

I love tranformers also i like sports.I think they are the same in some way because they are the same clever and also need team-work!The spirit is dread but valued to learn by us.

Posted by El_Rickhead

awww they all went, i didn't even realise there were 1800 members on this site, i am truly gutted.
if anyone knows any other means of getting a beta please let me know :)
me love you long time

Sweet, I was definitely not expecting this.

Posted by Whiskeyjack

Looked like a pretty standard MMO with Star Trek flavor. Still would have liked to raise the roof on the USS Duder.

Posted by Korosive

Not a very exciting intro to the game. Really basic.

Posted by NoXious

Thanks for the key GB!

After the download I hit the server, but man is it confusing at the start. I am probably going to create several characters before advancing any further. These weird ass skill trees and as an Engineer I can somehow invest points into the other skill trees too, mind blown at that point.
Laggy as hell though, Open Beta never leaves a good impression of a game :p

" Majel Barrett played Nurse Chapel, Lwaxanna Troi and "Number One" on the first Star Trek pilot (as well as the computer voice for many of the series [and other voice work on the animated series too]). "
Yes, Brad loses his nerd badge for that brain fart.
 
Yes, Wrath of Khan was clearly the best of the old movies.  Six could have been if they had stuck to their guns with killing Kirk.
 
Otherwise the J.J. Abrams Star Trek is the best.

It's not just people from the site. If you google this "giantbomb stobeta", you'll see that people from many other sites came here and grabbed a code. Of course, there are also people here with multiple accounts who got more than one code.
Posted by gbrading

Well, it's certainly Star Trek so far. Ship combat looked alright as well. Interested to see how this develops.

Vinny's voice talents know no bounds.

Ending was worth the whole hour. EL O EL

Posted by PentaCube

character creation looks epic!  But that is to be expected here.

Edited by kagekage

Everytime I see more videos of this, the less and less interested I get. 
 
EDIT: Scratch that, this QL was awesome, the game looks pretty promising too!

(I had an extra from amazon.com...)
 
By the by- if you're really jonesing to get into this action- you can pre-order from amazon or gamestop, and once you get your key, cancel the pre-order.  Since they don't bill until it ships, nothing gets put on your card... just don't forget to cancel it ><.

Posted by kidzombie

Needs more Klingons

Posted by Areyow

Also- to full impulse- you can press Shift R

Edited by Berkut

Man, finding open beta key for this game without pre ordering is nearly impossible :(

Posted by Daniel_Newton

This needs to be a full blown endurance run.

Posted by casualterror

great job. I'm playing it too. but your username is also needed. you are identified character@username that way multiple people can have the same character name. And if you press the button up arrows on in the spaceship that's full impulse. there is a fire all button and you can just spam that during a space battle.
