The baton has been passed. For over a decade I've owned the StarTrek-Games.com domain (actually stgu.com first, then the switch to the new one, startrek-games.com).

Now I've handed control of the domain over to my first officer, Stylsy, who along with the promotion to Captain has ideas and plans for the sites 'Next Generation'. It'll be nice to see the old ship that has been mothballed for so long, repaired and updated and flying again. Congratulations Captain Stylsy! I know you'll make this old admiral proud!

Star Trek Online is now Free-To-Play with todays F2P launch. So if you've been putting off playing, like I have, the only thing we can do now is to "Engage!".

Trekkies who love Settlers of Catan are looking forward to this one:

Star Trek Catan takes two well-known media properties and merges them into, well, into something that is 95% The Settlers of Catan glossed with Trek tropes and spiced with new special powers related to Trek personalities.

In Star Trek Catan, players start the game with two small space stations at the intersection of three planets, with each planet supplying resources based on the result of a dice roll. Players collect and trade these resources – Dilithium, Tritanium, food, oxygen and water – in order to build spaceships that connect regions in the galaxy, establish small and large space stations at new intersection points in order to increase resource acquisition, and acquire development cards that provide victory points (VPs) or special abilities.

On a dice roll of 7, a Klingon ship swoops in to prevent resource production on one planet, while taxing spacegoers who hold too many resources.

The one new element in Star Trek Catan compared to the Settlers version is a set of character cards, each featuring one of Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Sulu, Scott, Uhura, Chekov, Chapel, Rand or Sarek. Each character card has two special powers that the holder can use on his turn, such as a forced trade.

Stahl leaves Star Trek Online and Cryptic Studios. Another prediction I made just a month ago.

Anyone who has been reading my website StarTrek-Games.com (this Buzz and G+ feeds) have known that I predicted Star Trek Online would go FTP by the end of the 2011. So you won't be surprised by this new information.
