Brad's constant dismissal of DS9 and anything DS9 related while at the same time asking basic questions about it and admitting he knows pretty much nothing about the series makes me think of Brad as the kid in school always agreeing with the others kids to look cool without actually knowing what he's talking about.

some one in fleet chat said that "seabiscuits swim like Kenyans".

BOUNCE! BOUNCE! BOUNCE!

That outro almost blew my speakers up. And also, my mind.

Posted by Capum15

Great dance party. Bahahaha, "SPACE CONGA!" in the chat at 39:44.\
 
Also: That last battle was awesome. The song was hilarious.

Dave is right and Ryan and Jeff are wrong.  DS9 was awesome because one episode lead to another like a actual series with a long arcing story line.  The Dominion War was exciting unlike most non-Borg TNG episodes.
 
The beta is ending, but it looks fun however still not for me.  I'm waiting for Star Wars in 2011.

EPIC ending

Edited by Roddykat
This was great! The part about the wormhole was funny because I (like most) tried to go through it.  
 
 You guys totally should have gone to Risa just for the Lulz. You don't need a mission to go into systems and some planets. There were folks running around there. I kinda geeked out when i went to DS9. First thing I did, ran to OPS. Was a little disappointed, but got over it quick. And  dammit, I did not see the door to Quark's and kept  looking for it.  
 
Oh Dave (spoiler), Morn died dude [ http://bit.ly/8ZUJVE]. Okay, not really.
 
I hope you guys did catch some the stuff at the end. I popped in because I wanted to finish a mission or two. Borgs to the left of me, Borgs to the right of me. Was kind of annoying having to warp about out after being sucked in (and followed by a) Cube. Awesome at the same time.  Warped in the first time and got dealt with as soon as a came out of warp.  Truly a WTF moment. And I ended up with Quantum Torpedoes and some other cool ish a few minutes before things ended .Defintely going for Quantum Torpedoes and the corresponding console when I get back in.  I should have hit up a Borg cube then, but wasn't much time..
 

Oh, and I don't know if you guys saw it in the Replicator, but there was tea, Earl Grey. Hot!

No, all characters got wiped when the Beta ended. I believe you could have saved your costume if you went to the Tailor and done so. Will find out soon(though not soon enough). 
 
I cannot WAIT to go back in. Lifer! 
 
P.S. DS9 is great!!!

Now that is how you end a beta.

Jeff sounded like a true tactical officer.

You guys are awesome.

@trophyhunter: I'm down with doing tthe agency when it comes out. 
 I think it's too late for that global agenda game demo wise so you'll just have to look at the game . not sure what to do with it other wise.

So rad, great sendoff to this miniseries. This just reminds me of how badly I want another full-blown Endurance Run.

Posted by Gildermershina
@Ragdrazi: Yeah, but the last season is really great I thought. It kind of dips through 6 but kicks up again in 7.
Posted by Baal_Sagoth

Set Phasers to Fun has been great! All the episodes were definitely very entertainig & I hope you guys maybe continue this with the full game. Or just do something similar for a different game. Anyway, fantastic STO coverage!

Posted by D_O_A

Awesome as always guys, although i skipped a little of the DS9 spoiler sections as i am watching the series for the first time now, (only up to season 3)

Posted by matti00

It is infuriating to watch someone else play an MMO, but I've strangely enjoyed this.

Posted by Nictel

Now I need to watch this in the future and scream.

Posted by TheClap

Best ending ever

Posted by Ragdrazi

Fuck you asswhipes.  
 
Except the last few seasons DS9 was fucking awesome.

Posted by Devil240Z

Am I the only one who is turned off by the way planetary systems are displayed like bad 3rd grade astronomy models.

The end-of-beta event was a spawn-campers dream, I must say.

We have to keep in mind that flying through space for 2 minutes and doing nothing is going to be a lot less fun without 2 people talking to us the whole time. "

I use the time to type something on fleet chat, the space combat is a little too intense to really not have your hand mashing the arrow keys, number keys, the 'e' key and both mouse buttons at the same time. It looks slow, but in my experience the griffons in WoW are a lot worse, you appreciate the breather here.
 
Plus, the first time you enter a sector Leonard Nemoy speaks inside your mind.

How does this differ from PSN Home?

Is that DAVE?!?

Edited by PLWolf

Amazon has a deal where you get the standard version for $47, $10off your next video game purchase, early access to the game 1/29, and a Borg Bridge Officer. I think this is the way to go.

Edited by buckybit

I am completely on Dave's side when it comes to Deep Space Nine. 
 
Although I grew up watching the original series - and it is my most beloved, I thought that Deep Space Nine was the best, when it comes to writing. 
 
Like probably all of us, who are not die-hard Trekkies, I have to re-evaluate my memory by watching all the Star Trek again ... or maybe not, cuz it would take years?

Posted by eduardo

Do you keep your beta character if you commit to buying the actual game subscription?

Posted by Toxin066

Greatest ending ever.

Posted by Tipio

I bought a lifetime subscription.  I have a feeling this game is gonna soar.

Posted by Neuromancer81

Ahh and there he goes out into the stars, our brave Seabiscuit. Frigth Tunoku Babby will live on in our hearts. I have watched all of the videos and really enjoyed watching Brad and Jeff fight with the bugs, unintuitive menu system and Brad's refusal to read any text whatsoever. 
 
It remains to be seen whether Star Trek Online will have the momentum to become a fraction as popular as WOW but from watching these videos I really want to try it out for myself.  Hopefully I will get the chance to try it  and maybe even see a USS Duder out there pulling a Brad.

Posted by desoda

After watching this series plus having played a few hours on a friend's beta-account, I broke down and preordered. Look, it better be good! :)

Posted by Inquisitor

Also, even if the game turns out to give me a bit of a "meh" vibe, i LOVED this feature, more like this please! 
 
One ounce of constructive criticism though, if i may: i know its all fun and games but try to be a bit more laid back and behave more maturely, the constant bickering and name calling between Ryan and Brad starts to go on everyone's nerves.
Posted by Jost1
@Inquisitor: I appreciate what you're saying but NO ONE has seen much late-game content so who knows what'll happen? I'm fine with paying a subscription for a while and see if it gets awesome. It's fun now, at any rate.

"No we have to fly there"....
"Oh :( "

Thanks for these videos, I laughed so hard when I saw my USS Steakhouse featured in yesterday's video, also trying to get into the klingon world before the beta ended. Never noticed that the Duder was RIGHT BEHIND ME the whole time! :(

Posted by Inquisitor

This thing doesnt convince me at all, its the usual time sink with diminishing returns
 
I dont understand all the hype; if you simply like the Star Trek flair you're better off rewatching the series, or playing the single player games, heck, even Starfleet Command (1999) or Elite Force (2000) had more fun in it than this bland MMO trying to be both of these and achieving none. But have it your way :) 
 
The concept is awesome (just play the two above mentioned games and think to make an MMO out of both), but the execution is just mediocre, game mechanics wise, this is a poor man's EVE online.
