Hurry! Star Trek Online goes into open beta today!


I’d be lying if I claimed to know anything about Star Trek Online, but I do know that it went into open beta today. That’s good news, yes?

The game, which has been developed by Cryptic Studios (the same guys who brought you City of Heroes), is an MMO, one that presumably takes place in the Star Trek universe. And if there’s one universe I know next to nothing about—even less than Star Wars!—it’s Star Trek. I’ve seen all of one episode, and that’s only because The Rock made a special appearance.

What I wonder is, will there be a big feud between proponents of Star Trek Online and The Old Republic? (The WoW fans will be all, “Pfft, where’s Arthas?”) And if so, whose side should I bet on?
