    ok, first of all what a bunch of crap that conclusion is.1. if you copy and use all the cuenrrt successfull features, and theres nothing new other than a star trek skin, theres nothing to pull the cuenrrt online gammer off there cuenrrt online game!!!!, it seems to me that this would only cater to star trek fans, and poorly at that since the game isn’t desined to be star trek, but an MMO that feels trek.2. for a new game to be wildy sucessfull, or world class AAA , the game needs to be something ALL the others are NOT!, the game needs new features, and a new way of thinking. if they come up with creative gameplay thats nothing like any other MMO on the market. THATS what will pull the cuenrrt online gamer off there cuenrrt online game to try this new exciting star trek MMO that takes a totaly different angle to what it means to be an MMO, and yet is still fun!!thats the only way to pull ahead of the crowd and be a leader in MMO’slook at every sucessfull MMO out there. like the top ones. ALL of them are innovative, and have pioneered new paths in MMO technology and thinking. and for STO to suceed in bringing in non star trek fans, they need to do the same.3. to get the Star Trek fans to be happy enouph to play the game for a decade or more, the game has to be made trek so I say start from scratch and don’t as yourself how do we make an MMO Star Trek? ask ourselfs how do we make Star Trek and MMO? just because your desining a game thats not like any other, doesn’t mean it only appeals to a nitche crowd, it may appeal more the that crowed, but if the game play is genuenly fun, creative, and outside the box. the game is made for a new mass crowd. ready and eager for a new, thrilling expirience in an online persistant worldand on top of that, the star trek community is HUGE, Startrek-online.net alone is testoment to that, haveing over 7500 users. and I know at least 15 people wanting to play it who have never even been to startrek-online.net. I’d say the potential players at release are at least 15 to 20 times the ammount of people on thst site! so I wouldn’t realy call us nitche
