We have finally reached that first of desirable goals in Star Trek Online – “Create a Klingon Character.” How exciting! I did not opt to create an actual Klingon warrior for my KDF-side character, since I already recruited a Klingon as my Science Officer:
Instead, I have decided to go with a lovely Orion girl who will cut you.
Unfortunately I have not yet had a chance to check out the Klingon side of the fence, as I have been focusing on getting my Federation character to level 11 so that I can try out a Science Vessel and see if it gels with my playstyle. So far I am Lieutenant 7 and counting. I would love to be able to say that it has been a grind getting to this point, but the truth is I have barely been paying attention to my level; the ability to create a Klingon character came as a shock to me. Every day we learn more about the mechanics and depth of the game, while playing longer and longer gaming sessions than we originally planned to indulge in.
I’m going to miss my Federation character when the open beta ends. I may eat my words at some point, but right now I don’t think I have it in me to roll even one alt in this game. I haven’t felt this connected to a single character since I played in the Fallen Earth closed beta, and That’s A Good Thing.
