Good Morning, Good Afternoon and Good Evening Trek Gamers

Here it is - the much waited for next episode of Hailing Frequency - and our longest show this year - Episode 52 of Hailing Frequency.

In this weeks show, the hot topic is of course the mysterious countdown timer that appeared on the Cryptic Website and how it pretty much confirms that Cryptic Studios are developing Star Trek Online.

We cover the facts and take a look at some of the comments folks have been making about the subject.

K'suan'indra brings us a roundup of the Star Trek Gaming News headlines as always, and at the end of the show, she gives us an amazing 35 minute interview with Derek Chester - veteran Star Trek Writer.

We also have two new pilot segments in this show - Thoughts of a Random Redshirt takes a look at other major MMOs on the market today and how elements of them could be applied to or used in Star Trek Online.

Lord Nova brings us an as yet unnamed segment (Called STO-Zone v2 in this show only) which attempts to take over where MrJuliano left of - covering all of the latest news and facts to come out about Star Trek Online. He also takes a look at some of the hot topics of the week on the Hailing Frequency STO Forums.

Thats all until the next show, see you in a couple / few weeks!

How much more confirmation is needed

We know that Perpetual sold the Intellectual Property of Star Trek Online to a Bay Side Developer

Now all of a sudden a bay side developer (Cryptic studios) shows up with an image that used to belong to Perpetual Entertainment, so now we know who owns the Intellectual Property. and sufficed to say we now know who is developing Star Trek Online.

Not to mention the 5 months worth of subtle clues that scream hey its us we are the bay side developer!

Now the question is when do they expect to release it.

 See timer at top of page! :)

 But seriously, if Section 31 agent Nicodemous is giving his word, who am I to doubt? I also hold the belief that Cryptic has the IP and is developing the game. I just do not want to see an "Apollo 13" again, if I may borrow the analogy from Random Redshirt. =)
 
 As for Podcast #52? Awesome work guys! The gaming news is always informative; Arthur Yoria is great as usual, and Random Redshirts' and lrdnovas' segments were very, very welcome additions. ( lrdnova has come the closest to pronouncing my name so far! :P )

I just have the Derek Chester interview to finish up, but I am confident that K'Suan'indra did an outstanding job.

Again, great segment people! I look forward to #53!

  • Howdy, folks!
The Section 31/Office Space stuff had me rolling!  That was brilliant!  I really am looking forward to more!

Random Redshirt: What can I say but, wow.  A serious editorial on the 'space race'. 

GREAT PILOT, folks!!  Bravo!

On Arthur Yoria.  I really felt that song did work well as a Captain Pike story and I would like to do one of my 'toonshows' to that song.
--
On the Derek Chester interview:   I know a lot of folks wanted to hear Derek talk about the Star Trek 'games' he has done...but we have actually done that interview half a dozen times already and wanted to focus on his latest comic work and get the whole story on "Tuthill's been hit!".

As always, thanks for listening, folks!
