With my COFA course done for the session and just marking to do for DCS09 I am looking at games with more intent. I am thinking about just diving into WoW again and rolling new characters with the kids – that would be fun. That said there are lures from other MMOs, somehow having a persistent world makes a game seem all the more appealing. Champions Online and others look fascinating and the coming Star Trek Online is another in the Cryptic Studios line that may even come out this year — hmmm maybe not.

I am keen to see things like the interface for an MMO in the Star Trek and having a custom ship and a custom crew is just the kinda thing I would like. A bit like having a whole DnD party at my command.

Here is some imagery from STO:
