I been playing this for about a week now, and it's coming along quite nicely from the look of it. The character creation is pretty decent, for the two factions currently available, lots of nice tweaks although I think its a bit of a cheek to charge game credits to change your avatar at a later date even when using stock parts. Gameplay: Well the space battles is nearing completion and its pretty darn fun especially if you are Klingon with tier 2 Bird of Prey (sweet battle cloaking heh hee), everything feels like it's gelling together really well, once they sort the bugs over the next few months it should be really good. Every ship looks very detailed and some nice customisations available....plenty of guns and buffs to mess with. Ground battles...umm they need a hell of a lot more polishing sadly, the ground based PVP matches feel pretty thin and souless compared to the space ones but again more content is due and PVE missions seemed reasonable (although theres very few on Klingon thus far). The main issues at the minute are pretty expected, such as peak time server issues and glitchy missions but even in the 7 days I've played it I've seen some pretty big changes over the patches for the better, although I must admit I'm still unsure if I'll play once its past beta, as I have a chip on my shoulder about paying more than once for the same game...subscriptions should be lifetime and sold as the games price tag even if it were say double the price....£148 for a lifetime sub seems seriously ripoff.
