Legacy of Romulus, the first expansion to Star Trek Online, has a new video and screenshots available. Set for release in May, the expansion contains numerous content additions such as the playable Romulan and Reman speciesm the ability to pilot the Romulan Warbird class starships with their Singularity Core and speaking of factions, every faction will be playable from the beginning of the game as of the update. The Tholian Reputation system will also be put into place. It’s a large update, and you can get a glimpse of it below.

    I can’t help but love Cryptic’s stuff. It’s not just that they seem to be the scrappy underdog that refuses to give up, but that they make things which genuinely go against the MMO curve. Champions Online had GW2 mechanics before GW2 existed (as I’ve pointed out). GW2 in many ways is fantasy reskin of CO, but Champions Online then also has the character creation freedom of City of Heroes on top of that.

    Star Trek Online has space travel, space combat, exploration, diplomacy, and a lot of things you just won’t find in any other MMORPG. Their execution is never perfect, and their games are so buggy that friends and I have coined “Oh Cryptic…” at which point we just shake our heads and smile. But there’s a home-grown charm to them, something that the homogenised, triple-A MMO will never understand.

    I suppose that’s why I keep being drawn back to them.

    If you want something truly different out of an MMO then you may just find what you’re looking for with Cryptic’s offerings, and you could do far worse. They’re far from perfect, but they’re also far from normal, in a good way.
