Star Trek MMO confirmed

Trekkies rejoice

Star Trek fans longing to be captain of their own Federation Starship online will be happy to note Cryptic Studios is developing a massively mutliplayer online role-playing game (MMORG) called Star Trek Online. It will be available for both console and Mac formats.

Cryptic Studios has plenty of experience developing MMORPGs via its popular Champions Online franchise. Cryptic says Star Trek Online will let you explore the Star Trek universe in 3D graphics as it "moves into the 25th century." You'll be able to captain your own Federation or Klingon ship, customize it with systems of your choosing, recruit and create your crew, beam down to planets and engage in space battles. There will also be options for player-generated content.

Cryptic, which secured the rights for this online title from CBS Consumer Products, isn't the first to attempt this MMORPG. P2 Entertainment, which originally had the rights, stopped working on it in January. The title sat in limbo until it was picked up in the last few days.

The Star Trek Online developer promises to unveil gameplay footage as well as more details at the annual Las Vegas Star Trek convention on August 10. It will also stream the event live via the MMORPG's Web site.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
