Hello Captains --
What a busy week it has been. Last Friday, the Disruptor Beam development team submitted its first beta build to our beta testers. Those testers have been playing the first version of Star Trek Timelines, outfitting their starships with crew from every Star Trek series and movie.
So far, our players have completed thousands of missions and fought over 1,000 ship battles. All of this data is helping us understand how players play our game, and giving us invaluable test data that will help us prepare for launch. I wanted to give you a peek into some interesting happenings in the beta to-date.
A common debate among Star Trek fans is, "Which captain would you pick, Kirk or Picard?" With Star Trek Timelines, we offered our beta players that option: Will you pick Picard, Sisko, or Kirk as your starting captain in your crew? With 59% of players choosing him, Captain Picard was the clear favorite. 24.5% of players chose Captain Sisko and 16.5% of players picked Captain Kirk.
Ships are also a major part of Star Trek Timelines, and our beta testers found that out right away. While most of our testers still fly the sturdy and dependable Constellation-class, half a dozen lucky players found the Enterprise-D, an immensely powerful ship that can handle anything thrown at it. Not to be outdone, a handful of players also grabbed a Borg Cube. That's right, you can build and fly a Borg Cube in Star Trek Timelines.
Here is a first look at what a Borg Cube will look like in the game:
