You can tell the Giantbomb crew is loosing interest because the videos are getting shorter.

It sucks that the Space War Zone didn't register properly for your quest. 

I agree with Jeff, Space War Zone is a terrible name for it.

Brad, you have to get to Lt. Commander before you can purchase a new ship class I believe. 
 
I have to admit that I've been having way more fun than I should be with STO, but I'm a big fan of Star Trek. I grew up watching the series, so they hooked me with their nerd bait.

The beginning of the game changed quite a bit when I played over the weekend. I really like it and I'm not much on MMOs, but I am a trekkie so that could have something to do with it. Between this and the Tiger/PGA Online Game, I could be set for the rest of the year. Outside of the Console Exclusive games that is. lol

yes!! star trek is poisoned by persona 4

Yep Jeff buys a lifetime sub and Brad even says he wants to keep playing after the beta even though he seems to rush through things and try and avoid combat now. lolwat

Ahh, Jeff's slow descent into madness.

Borg cube is bigger than its shields. how silly.

You guys should do this for every big MMO beta.

Where's Cpt Amagi of the USS Uncontrollable Giggles?

Gotta represent the TalkRadar. It is my 2nd favorite podcast! Behind the bombcast of course.

Effing N.Wildman from Voyager!? Janeway better be in there somewhere.

Posted by Hoshnasi

I noticed Seaman has his skills spread pretty much even across all skills, is this the right way?   I've been just dumping to energy weapons for space and turents for ground. BTW, I'm an engineer.
 
 Also, give the Seaman two weapons one with an AOE stun and a sniper.  Then when about to take on a non-warrior or non-brute e.g. a swordman you can attempt to stun him till that spinning red circle shows up, then pop him with the sniper shot, easy kill.  No need to take down the shields and armor.

I love Jeff's attempt to convince others of his downright madness of buying the lifetime subscription. And yep, that's the Naomi Wildman from Voyager. I just had an excellent mission where you travel back in time at fight Klingons alongside the original series Enterprise.

Dammit, Brad is so easily distracted, it's so annoying. :D

I can barely hear them. I almost always have to put headphones on just to hear them.

Deep space 9 tomorrow.

If you look in the chat box someone said:
 
"It's the duder! That totally made my day. :)"
 
The Giant Bomb team; making people happy, one beta at a time.

Think I saw at the first of K7 where someone was using one of the fire extinguisher items found on one quest where after dealing with a few enemy troops I had to save the scientists with futuristic fire extinguisher putting out the fires all around them. In the ship customization or the character sheet for the ship you can rename it as well as renumber it. Liked in STO that there are some merchant ships you can buy things from instead of escorting them, hoping this stays in the retail game as it's better than running to vendor to buy something. 
 
Agreed with everyone in this QL, once I got the cruiser I had a turret in the back as well as rear photon launcher & helped out tons in battle. Only fast travel I saw was in the powers list that had a transwarp to the starbase, aside from that Jeff seems to be right in flying lots in the warp space.

These STO quicklooks aren't as fun when Ryan is backseat driving the whole time.
 
All it does is expose how f'ing slow Brad is. Atleast with Vinny and Dave we are distracted from the plodding pace.

@ChrisTaran: Alright, guys pile on...board.
Posted by SirPsychoSexy

I always thought stars were just planets/suns/galaxies way off in the distance, but apparently in star trek you can drive right by them and they are just small bright specs

Dude. you are level 5 in an MMO, dont expect to be able to buy ship parts/gear and/or win a battleground. 
Its actually kinda refreshing to see a person such as brad whos playing this game like it were a casual RPG. Dude. its an MMO. Give it another 150 hours and check back on those ship parts.

Posted by Trision
@Metal_Mills: You said it yourself in a post on Jeff's wall, "The game just isn't that good...".
Posted by CannibalFerox

Sometimes it's like: 
Captain Ryan Davis gives the orders, 
First Officer Gerstmann provides the strategy and insight, 
Lieutenant Shoemaker drives the ship. 
 
I wish you guys would do more, say, after the beta! After all, Brad and Ryan will have their lifetime subscriptions too!

You have to rank up to Lt. Commander (Rank 11 I believe) before you can get one of the bigger ships.

This looks really fun, but I don't have time for MMOs.

GamesRadar has some people that like the PC, Tyler Nagata comes to mind. "
True. T. Nag is the PC editor though. Tyler Wilde grew up playing PC games for a while and Charlie loves adventure games, but i don't think it goes much further

Bit of a boring episode this one =/ The commentary wasn't as funny and didn't have the same enthusiam as past episodes.

NICE!!  My ship is the U.S.S Satonaka and one of my Engineers kinda resembles Chie, at least until tonight when wipe everything. As been said, nothing stops the Endurance Run! Surprised I haven't seen the U.S.S Persona and it's away (investigation) team, yet.

Posted by Shadowself

I'm surprised Brad's the one that picked up on the Satonaka reference...

Posted by punkxblaze

Oscar Mike is Oscar Mike. I'm pretty sure, at this point, that a good portion of the STO userbase is Giant Bomb.

these have been just terrific :)

Edited by Hashbrowns

Did Brad really say "that series sucked anyway" in relation to Deep Space Nine?  Really?  That's... Wow.  We're not talking about Voyager, dude. 
 
Speaking of Voyager, wasn't Naomi Wildman the little girl born on Voyager who became pretty close to Seven of Nine?  I'm weirded out that I know that.

@Arrested_Developer:  it's 10 I got there by 10 and got a new ship.

  That was me, haha. I was also trying to get to the klingon world in time before the beta ended, but I never noticed the Duder was RIGHT BEHIND ME :(

That person is the greatest person of all the timez.
