@marokai: Holy shit I love you. That was a lot of words to justify why I love DS9. Thank you.

Edited by Marokai
@Venatio: I've always felt like there are two different camps of people when it comes to DS9 and TNG and which one you're in depends on, fundamentally, what you come to Star Trek for. If you come to it for one-time romps of nerdy kitsch value of "Oh man, look at me, I'm such a nerd, watching Star Trek" then you're coming to it for a very standalone, low impact, low consequence experience, and if that's the type of person you are, then your favorite Star Trek is probably TNG. 
 
On the flipside, if you're an actual fan of Star Trek more broadly, with appreciation for the canon and coming to the series with an interest in deeper storytelling and you value continuity as something that can create a stronger narrative, then you're coming to Star Trek in search of a legitimately good and in depth experience. If that's the type of person you are with Star Trek, then your favorite Star Trek is DS9.  
 
Deep Space 9 is the type of Star Trek that someone who gets way into a story would like, TNG is something you watch a mismatched marathon of and veg out to when you're really bored on Friday night. Jeff and Ryan wouldn't be caught dead un-ironically liking a Star Trek series for anything other than the nerd cachet and the ease of access that TNG has, and personally, I've just always thought that sucks. It's why I just can't take anyone seriously who's only appreciation for the canon is TNG.
 
But this was an entertaining feature that I enjoy re watching, at least.

Rewatching these now after I've watched the entire run of Deep Space Nine I've gotta strongly disagree with all the DS9 hate from Jeff, Ryan and aswell as the community, it's easily my favorite Trek show

Too bad there will never be a third Endurance Run... ;)

What a series of posts this is.

They keep talking about how you should play as a tactical officer and let the NPC crewman use the engineering and science abilities, but that won't do you much good when you find yourself in an actual group with five tactical players without a single medical tricorder between them. I totally rolled a science officer in the beta and never regretted it.

Brad, I love you dude, but you really need to learn how to play this game better if you're driving.  I hear Jeff and Ryan telling you what to do, and it echos my thoughts 95% of the time (you're trying to collect an anomaly when 3 ships are shooting at you?!?!).  It is entertaining sometimes though... on second thought, don't change a thing.

No community can handle it.

Just found out that the open beta test trial has been extended until the 26th Tuesday, so we are expected to see Frigth and the USS Duder in action a bit longer, alright.

Agreed. Those are some hilariously Giant Bomb-ish lines. Classic.

Gonna be a shame when the beta ends. I've really enjoyed these videos.

Edited by Swordfish9

When the beta test period is over, every beta tester's game progress and character WILL BE ERASED, so say goodbye to Frigth.  
 
The STO game server is down again, so I guess I won't be reaching the rank of Commander.
 
Next I wish to see videos of the Giantbomb crew playing Mass Effect 2.

IIRC, you can just hit space bar once when you have someone targeted to start firing when auto fire is enabled. No need to double click.

Not getting something like the crafting system is one thing. The basic movement functions are another. This is like going through the first world of NSMBW not knowing there's a run button.

Anyway, haven't Quick Looks and the like always been about watching Brad fail his way through stuff? Personally, I think I learn alot more this way than if I was watching some dude from Cryptic play it.

"Eh, can Ryan just replace Brad at the controls? Brad doesn't even attempt to learn from his mistakes. "

I was kind of thinking that. As much as I like Brad... eh... 
 
Also: Brad was like, "We've cracked the code of Ster Trek Online space combat!". Hey, and guess what it was? EXACTLY what basically every single person has been saying in all caps on every video. Slow down, go attack, fire lasers and stuff till the shield is gone then fire torpedos, done, move on.
Posted by Phished0ne

Does anyone think they will make it to pvp before the beta ends?

Posted by Swordfish9

Is Cryptic going to erase the beta players' character profile and game progress when the open beta trial ends?

Edited by fox01313

Someone at GiantBomb needs to get to Lt. Cmdr. as it doesn't look like the crew of the Duder will get there before the beta ends.  I do like in the beta the new look to a lot of the UI & all about the delta section that's in this QL as it's totally random on what happens which is nice. Found out that too if there's one ship best thing is to just dent it a lot with attack mode, that and whatever power your tactical ppl have in the ship, use it all the time.
   
BTW you definitely need to save the Kahn beta message at the first for any other mmo betas that get the quick look treatment.     
 
Also for anyone at GiantBomb piloting the USS Duder or another ship, I noticed that there was a 3rd character space open & went to make someone while the other person kept crashing on that server, so they've filled in the intro of the Federation side with plenty of getting Nimoyed in a good way.

Late edit--Okay just paid for the 4th ship (all tier1 & 2) to try out & just tore through the nausacan fleets with the latest (USS Dagon & a science ship too), also the reverse tractor beam is so freaking nice when you have to push ships out of the way instead of having them explode on top of you. Also hell of fun when you're fighting a bunch of people as you push the near exploding ship into a bunch of other enemy ships. As for how the science ship rocks, you can target things like shields or weapons to really cripple the hell out of their ship & if you have 2 science officers with the tachyon beam you will be just chewing through ships like they're made of paper. Now I know when I get the Star Trek MMO after dealing with the hectic class I'm in it will be a definitely tough choice on which ship to go with as they are all pretty good though liking the extra room you get with the cruisers. Probably won't get to the beta again before it closes out but will put up a few more screenshots & just sad that all the crazy holodeck stuff I read about being in the STO mmo, was either not there or not found but I'm glad that there's less space cop missions now (either just after hitting lt. cmdr in beta or them just expanding on it).

I don't know if you saw, but Ryan was no maestro at the helm either. Not that any of them really need to be; Brad's deaths in particular are legendary. :P

Brad doesn't even attempt to learn from his mistakes.

Right now I'm at Lt. Commander grade 8, and I am trying to reach the Commander rank before the trial period ends.
