Star Trek Online going free to play

         Cryptic Studios (now owned by Perfect World) is developing a free-to-play business model for Star Trek Online.

     “Cryptic is working on the free-to-play model for Star Trek Online,” said Kelvin Lau, Perfect World chief financial officer. “This is going to be launched by the end of this year” (source: Seeking Alpha). Sadly the statement contained no more information about Star Trek Online. Star Trek Online is a sci-fi MMORPG based on the Star Trek Franchise. Taking place in the year 2409, Star Trek Online boasts great features and lets fans both new and old experience unparalleled adventures. Players have the opportunity to become high-ranking Starfleet officers and participate in missions that take them into the depths of space, across exotic planets and inside other starships. Star Trek Online offers total customization, from a player’s avatar to the ship he captains. 

       Once this title goes free to play I will spend some time testing and reviewing it for the benefit of everyone following.
