My Star Trek Online Videos

I know, I know… I annoyed so many people with my automatic Twitter updates about new videos I had uploaded to Google. Well, I’m sorry.

But, I’m not sorry enough to not post this summary post. Yes, here is an overview of all of the videos I have posted thus far.

First, for a quick reference, you can find all of my Star Trek Online videos, including any future ones, on this playlist. (Unfortunately, some of my first videos don’t have sound, but all of my latest ones, and my future ones, do!)

So, what videos do I have? Well, I have some videos pertaining to some missions in the game. (I also have a playlist for all mission videos, too.) These include the tutorial [1, 2, 3], the “SS Azura Mission” [1, 2, 3, 4], “Diplomatic Orders” [1, 2, 3], “Stop the Signal” [1, 2], “Hide and Seek” [1, 2, 3, 4] and, my personal favorite so far, “City on the Edge of Never” [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6]

Besides those mission videos, I also have some informative “How To” videos. An example of this is embedded below:

Hopefully, you’ll find these videos interesting!

Do you have any specific parts of Star Trek Online that you’d like me to make a video about? Let me know, either by a comment on this post, or through Twitter, Facebook, or the usual means!

Star Trek Online Begins Today!

That’s right! Those months of beta testing are over. The long wait for the first true Trek MMO has come to an end. We’ve finally arrived.

While the game launch date is February 2nd, anyone that has pre-ordered can begin playing today! Will we be seeing you in game?

If anyone does play and wishes to find me, you just have to look me up! I’m “@FSF Josh” in game. See you there!

STO Open Beta Gameplay Footage [Video]

So, are you waiting for Star Trek Online’s open beta client to download? Or are you not in beta at all? Or are you and you still want to see more of Star Trek Online?!

Well, here’s some game play footage of the mission to rescue the SS Azura! If the text and screen appear to small, you can always put the video into full screen to see it.

This video comes in four parts, all of which are posted below.

Star Trek Online Enters Open Beta

The game has come a long way. Star Trek Online is finally at the open beta stage. Thankfully, this also includes another little perk: the lifting of the non-disclosure agreement that had us closed beta testers silent.

Starting later today, I’ll be posting various screen shots from closed beta, talking about some of my favorite moments, and other little things about Star Trek Online. I can also answer questions.

Do you have something you want to know about Star Trek Online? If I can answer it, I will. Just leave a comment here, tweet me, or use the form on my blog.

Want to play Star Trek Online? There’s still a chance!

Star Trek Online is looking to be a very fun MMORPG. Being the first Star Trek game of this type, it definitely has quite a following. However, some people are already playing it! (They just have to report bugs, of course).

Are you interested in playing Star Trek Online? Well, if you haven’t already, be sure to sign up for the closed beta! It’s like joining one of those super secret online societies, where you can’t talk to others about it. At least you can be a geek and join this one!

But, we have other news, too! Even if you signed up for closed beta and have not got called, do not fear!  It has been announced that there will be a two week open beta close to Star Trek Online’s launch date of February 2nd, 2010.  So, be sure to check out their website and sign up for beta!

In the meantime, want a sneak peak at some of Star Trek Online’s game play? Check out this video.

Confirmed Star Trek Online Release Date

It has been confirmed from Cryptic, both on their website and from a tweet from a Cryptic staff member, that Star Trek Online will be released on February 2nd, 2010.

So, if you’re interested in playing it, maybe you’ll want to look into pre-ordering the game. Hopefully, by the time the game hits open beta, we’ll know more about the game mechanics and what fun can be expected from it.

Possible Star Trek Online Release Date

The website has just posted a new article that details a possible release date for Star Trek Online, an exciting new MMORPG coming from Cryptic Studios.

The basis for this guess comes from the fact that has put up a pre-order for Star Trek Online. And guess what? They’ve got a date attached: February 2, 2010.  And given that we already know that the game will be released in Q1 2010, this could possibly be a correct date.

Should we lock in that date for the release? Not necessarily. As no official release date has been given by Cryptic, it’s possible that that date is only a temporary one while Amazon (and the rest of us) waits to hear an official one given from Cryptic.

On a side note, do consider pre-ordering the game. The perks, as listed on, aren’t too bad: access to open beta and a special bridge officer for your character.  Seems like a nice little addition to having the game reserved for you. Oh, and the 6% savings you get for pre-ordering right now, too, is nice.
