Star Trek Online Now Online – but it’ll cost you $150 a year to play! February 3, 2010

Star Trek Online is now out but it’s not all that cheap to play— though the gameplay is sweet.

Amazon has the game for just under $50 -which is not bad BUT be warned fellow MMORG newbies – you need to pay a monthly fee too.

In all that monthly fee – even at the best current rate will still cost you over $150 a year – which means if you want to play Star Trek Online for the next twelve months it will actually cost you at least $200 ($50 for the game and $150 for the online subscription).

We’re not fans of monthly subscriptions. We are fans of star trek. Atari must be run by the Ferengi or something.

Gameplay though looks awesome – and Zachary Quinto (aka New Spock) is in the game too – though watch the video below where he explains his role -and how he’s not really a gamer himself since he has a life.

I’m hoping it will be worth it. It looks great.

What’s the big deal about a monthly fee?! All other major MMOs charge a monthly fee. World of Warcraft is $14.99 a month and in my opinion it’s some of the best and cheapest entertainment around.

Nobody likes paying a monthly fee, but I came to terms with it back when SWG launched simply because if I have a game to play with folks whenever I want I’m not going out and buying another new game as soon as I’ve finished whichever one I’ve already got. For me at least it’s still cheaper in the long run.
