I feel the same way.  It probably doesn't help that I don't give a fuck about Star Trek.

Drew wasn't in this quick look. "

He most probably meant Dave.

I am having good fun playing the beta and watching you guys play this.

I think they're fine with what they're doing, I enjoy it as it is.

I just play the video and then open a different tab and browse the internet. For all intents and purposes, I treat this as a podcast.

A parsec is a unit of length. So when they're talking about parsecs in Star Wars they're not really talking about speed, even though it kind of sounds that way. If you have a ship that can figure out a route that is the fewest parsecs, like the Millennium Falcon, then it is possible to arrive at a destination sooner then another ship even if both ships were traveling at the speed of light.
 
I think that's correct. I'm sure there's a bigger nerd then me that could explain it better.
 
And Star Trek has a more fleshed out universe than Star Wars because it is a television series. Star Wars only had 3 (or 6, I guess) 2 hour movies. They don't have time to explain how the shields work.

you can pick up mission by hailing starfleet.  if they have mission, theres a symbol that looks like a blue box next to their name.

Thats certainly what Lucas claims these days. Personally I just think he made a mistake in the 70s and is trying to explain it away.

would agree, was fun but the peanut gallery was out of control.

@Dethfish77: A hojillion Star Wars novels, comics, RPG supplements and technical manuals would disagree with you.
 
PS. Wedge Antilles solos the Enterprise and a Borg Cube at the same time. If Kettch was with him, the entire Star Trek universe would implode.

You need to level up. That "Skill Up" notification in the upper left was screaming for you to click it the whole episode. :)

Ships on planet and dudes in space always makes me laugh.

Another thing you may not know: If you hit P, you'll get a full list of all your abilities.  This includes "Transwarp," which immediately transports you to the Earth Starbase, but it has a 30 minute cooldown.  Useful if you want to quickly do some shopping or whatever.  You still have to fly back, though.

I've also experienced that constant hail bug.  So super annoying.  Different mission, though.

On the whole star wars numbers thing 
 
A parsec is a defined length of length equal to about 3.26 lightyears 
this is a real length astrophysicists use its not an invention of the star wars universe

The problem that happened in Star Wars is one of the writers (or Lucas?) thought a lightyear was a measure of time, and a parsec is 3.26 light years.
 
Some of the ships don't have shields in Star Wars because they've obviously not a free or easy to apply commodity.  In Tie Fighter the most basic tie fighters don't have shields because the empire doesn't think those pilots are worth protecting.

Dave, you are an idiot. Chewie doesn't just 'yell" he has a language. He's talking when he's 'yelling' as you call it.

Posted by Moztacular

I'm having alot of fun watching these, or at listening to them in the background while trying to be productive

Posted by Irish87

BAH! Turn off Impulse when you're escorting that freighter... 
 
sorry. 
 
Nice job on these videos by the way, you guys made me want to go and play the game. Then I went and played the game and now I don't want to anymore. You guys should advertise other things too, like jeans or cocaine.

Posted by basshero

I get the feeling Daves a little bit anti Star Wars and Star Trek biased??? Maybe???
Chewie does communicate! Han can understand wookie.

I like that there's a whole different conversation happening on the chat channel. Something about following brad and whatnot.

You don't HAVE to watch it, you know. It's perfectly alright to not OCD over watching Giant Bomb videos.

Is it just me or did that shapeshifter's ship look a little like one of those Shivan frigate thingamabobs?

Edited by DukeTogo

Even though it's hard to listen to two people talk about random shit unrelated to what's going on on-screen, watching people play an MMO is rough, so something has to be there to keep you watching.  You could watch me play the game for 3 hours, you'd see a lot more of the game, but I doubt you'd be entertained - or awake.
 
And Brad really needs to go to Starbase 24, it's a fleet action with dozens of ships fighting.

It was a Species 847263917 ship.
 
The Undine was a member of Species 847263917.

"set phasers to fun" haha made me laugh :D

Posted by Lind_L_Taylor

yes...Yes...YES!!!!  Can't wait to get home & get my viewing fix on. Then I'm gonna go play STO Beta. I put 2 hours into it so far, so I'm only 3 hours behind the chaps.  Overall, it's not a bad game.  The space combat was a lot of fun. Ground combat was alright but the rubber-banding in the beta made it painful everywhere.  I may get the Lifetime sub just for the hell of it since I usually spend exorbitant amounts of money on MMOs & never really play them long enough to justify paying for it (spent around $575 on CoH/V, around 3 years of playing it off & on since 2004).

Wait a minute... Dave doesn't like Picard? But... but... the line must be drawn here... this far... no further...  :(

@Diamond: I was saying more that the shields in Star Wars aren't consistant. While you're definitely right that TIE Fighters do not have them, it's hit or miss whether or not the Rebellions have them. I don't mean per ship, I just mean a lot of times it looks like ships that should have them don't.

@basshero: 10 years ago I would have said I was a bigger Star Wars fan, but I can't really think of anything I've enjoyed in that universe that has come out in the last decade. It seems like the brand is getting ruined, where Star Trek is at least consistently above-mediocre. I'd take the original Star Wars trilogy over anything this side of Rollerball or Network. ;-)

they really need to hire some more ppl to do the janitor work, so the Duders can sit and play games all day long - while we can watch them. I would never touch an MMO but enjoy me these Episodes just like I would enjoy a regular movie! Awesome.
 
Also Kirk and Odo, FTW! 
 
There's a long video of Shatner on google/youtube talking about his early days on radio/tv - very interesting for those of you, who care about the history of television/movies. Also another one with Nimoy and Shatner.

 Brad you need to level up your guy, and you need to level your Bridge Crew. Also you can purchase a fourth Bridge Crew member to round out your Away team. You can set things up so that your Bridge Crew will replace the normal security complement on away missions. You can buy better gear like armor on the Starbase by selling some of that stuff in your inventory. Stuff in your inventory can be sold while onboard your ship by using the Replicators, or to any Starbase vendor. By the way you need to select that Skills Trainer quest just to get it out of the way.   
Agreed! this would help you a ton brad, get some cool armor!

Hahaha, seeing the conversation we had in fleet chat on the video made my day.
 
And a man baby is a baby from a man, of course.

The more I see of this the more I'm convinced it's not worth my time. One of your quests is talk to some people then answer some obvious yes or no questions about what you just read? Seriously? Even Jeff seems really underwhelmed.

Here you go Dave, this is a parsec. It is actually a real unit of length.

It has it's off moments but the space combat can be really fun when it works well. Starbase 24 in particular is a great quest, you basically go in with a bunch of people and waste some Klingons on a large scale.

The game is fun when I watch you play it, but I think it sucks
