Star Trek Online Mac Beta Begins
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 8 comments

An IMG reader recently alerted us to a recent announcement from Cryptic Studios and Perfect World Entertainment, revealing that an official beta test phase for the Mac version of Star Trek Online is set to begin on November 12. The MMO lets fans enter the Star Trek universe to forge their own destiny among the stars.

In Star Trek Online, the Star Trek universe appears for the first time on a truly massive scale.

In this free-to-play massively multiplayer online game from Cryptic Studios, players can pioneer their own destiny as Captain of a Federation starship. Or they can become a Klingon Warlord and expand the Empire to the far reaches of the galaxy. With our latest expansion, players can work to rebuild the Romulan legacy as a member of the Romulan Republic.

Players will have the opportunity to visit iconic locations from the popular Star Trek fiction, reach out to unexplored star systems and make contact with new alien species. With Episode Missions, every moment spent playing Star Trek Online will feel like a new Star Trek episode in which you are the star.

Immerse yourself in the future of the Trek universe as it moves into the 25th century: a time of shifting alliances and new discoveries.

Explore strange new worlds and seek out new life and new civilizations in a vast, expanding universe.

Establish contact with new races, discover resources and uncover mysteries that will influence Star Trek's future. Set in 2409, Star Trek Online exists in a
timeframe beyond even the latest movies, so everything you experience will be brand new, but still based on all the fiction you love.

Star Trek Online is the first AAA MMO to feature space and ground combat at launch.

Missions take you and your friends into the depths of space, across exotic planets and even inside starships! As the Captain of your very own ship, it's up to you to lead your crew on missions that span a number of locations. You call the shots, no matter where you are.

When you're in space, you direct the action - be it in the middle of a high-tension battle, where you can maneuver in 3-D space and fire a vast array of weaponry at your enemies, or as you enter warp to explore parts of the galaxy never before documented.

On the ground, you lead your away team across exciting terrain, interacting with allies and battling enemies. Every Captain commands four subordinates on the ground, all of which can be directed to act in any manner you choose. Can you lead them safely through dangerous locales?

Using Crypticís Total Customization technology, every ship you command can be customized by you, from its color to its construction.

Your ship will retain a Star Trek "feel," but it will also represent your style. Whatís more, anyone can create their own species in Star Trek Online, meaning you can tell your own story about how you came to be in the galaxy. Leave your mark on the Star Trek universe!

The Foundry for Star Trek Online is your opportunity to craft the Star Trek universe your way. With The Foundry, you can create and build brand new missions and stories to share with your friends and the entire Star Trek Online community. Use the specialized toolset to create missions in space or on the ground. Craft custom missions, or really take your creativity to the next level by designing an entire series of episodes from the ground up!

Star Trek Online is developed by Cryptic Studios, creators of the massively successful City of Heroes and City of Villains. Itís built on the Cryptic Engine, a core technology that means our designers can focus less on a gameís nuts and bolts and more on creating a game that captures Star Trekís essence, guaranteeing that both longtime fans of Star Trek and people new to the universe will feel at home. Join us in Star Trek Online, and boldly go where no one has gone before!
