Star Trek Online: Jumped the Shark
I just went to check Star Trek Online, and see if the updates have brought it back into line with the game I would love to play, but my disappointment in the game was only magnified when I saw that the Star Trek Online store had been updated with new items including this:
This felinoid race has been a loyal member of the United Federation of Planets since the 23rd century. Now is your chance to have one on your bridge! Purchase of this option allows you to create Caitian Federation Officers. These Captains begin with the Feline Instincts trait (20% bonus to Stealth Sight, 10% boost to Exploit damage, 75% increase to jump height, 10% chance to dodge half of the damage from ranged attacks). They may choose two additional traits, one of which may be the new Pounce trait (25-foot lunge melee attack power).
Yup, Star Trek has added furries to the game. I am sure the weird people that are “into” that sort of thing will be excited. I am really not impressed with the direction the game is going in. Maybe I am just not the type of person that should play MMO’s, but I keep hoping for a science fiction MMO that really captures my attention.
