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.

Looks like Zachary Quinto – the new Spock for Star Trek XI – is a Star Trek fan.

woohoo.

In an interesting interview on SciFi Wire Quinto reveals that he thinks the new Trek will ‘honor’ classic Trek.

He also almost slips into his Vulcan character during the interview, by referring to the process as being ‘logical’.

“I always do that,” he said. “When I’m going to say the word ‘logical,’ and then I stop myself. There are certain things that I can no longer do with as much ease as I used to. Using the word logical is one of them.”
