Thanks, but better not. Classes are back on, and if I have Star Trek I'll wind up having the unique 'achievement' of having flunked out in the second week.

Yeah, getting booted out of school is no fun at all.

Well, if anyone else wants a trial, let me know, I've got two tenday passes left and a 5 day pass. It's a pretty fun game, though it starts out really slow. Stupid light cruiser... Peeved
Few days back I went through the Guardian of Forever to save Miral Torres from time traveling klingonstrying to fix the eugenics plague.

Yeah, it's got a pretty goofy voice though.
They also include smooth-headed klingons in the past. Half the fun of the game is seeing how many call backs to the TV series and the movies (even the new one) they've crammed in.

Also, it's narrated by Nimoy.

Stay strong Xiao. Ignore the temptation.

Oh, you evil...

*distracts herself with her DS and Phantasy Star - it's almost Star-Trek-like!*

This comment makes me laugh, and think how wrong that line sounds..

I don't play online games, and miss out so much on achievements from playing online. A lot of it is because dude/gals online are jerks.

I also haven't really found a game that I would warrant wanting to play online. Though I had a little bit of fun when Thoir, rest her soul, played Wow together. The game itself was kind of lame.

I play Guild Wars sometimes. One-time purchase fee, private explorable areas (once you leave a city, the only players with you are the ones in your party, and there are NPCs you can use for this purpose), and fairly non-addictive but pretty fun. Prince Cedric and I usually go adventuring together because we have two computers. I put it off a bit as I have a recital to play next weekend, but I'll play for an hour or two occasionally.
However, it is not Star Trek, which puts it at a disadvantage.

I was getting enticed into starting this today, as a co worker has been playing it.. He said he enjoys it.

For me to play it, however, I would probably need to upgrade my computer. As mine is from 2000. So it would cost me a good amount to play it. I have a new laptop, but it's video is not that good.

OOH!! I know!! Pick me!!
There's this one: http://www.aqworlds.com/
It has a "safe" server where you can only choose selected words if you want to talk to someone. That keeps people from expressing their jerkness to other players. :3
Though, the people who made the game only let the people who pay get all of the new awesome items. Fortunately, there are some good items that the people who don't pay can get. :3

Strike that. As I have now upgraded my computer. Still need to put it together, and mess around with it.. I'm so weak when it comes to technology, and gadgets.

Thanks, Amarath.. If I get a chance I will see about checking out that game you mentioned.
