Star Trek Online boldly goes free-to-play today


Star Trek Online should be beaming up a ton of new players today. The Federation’s official MMO now has a free to play option, allowing captains to take the bridge without spending a dime.

With the addition of F2P, Trek fans have been divided into two tiers: Gold and Silver. Gold players are paying subscribers, dropping $15 a month for an additional character slot, a bigger inventory, and instant access to the Foundry, the games tool set for user-made content. A complete breakdown of Gold and Silver features is available here.

To celebrate the F2P announcement, Cryptic Studios has released a trailer that follows a raw recruit as he climbs his way to Admiral. The epic voice-over will have you feeling the call of the Prime Directive.

    Played a bit of this last night and after reading some reviews that said that it was... well not very good, I have to say I was quite surprised by the game. I only played around 2 hours but it was varied and interesting so I will for sure be playing some more tonight!

    Why would WoW ever go F2P? It has more users then every other MMO combined, unless you count LoL as an MMO.
