The date was mentionned on the game page of Paradox but i don't see it anymore. 

Actually, i would have preferred if they had used the engine for Master of Orion CtS (with a separate battle engine). Would have allowed for more epic battles. And the map is prettier. Also the spying system (which wasn't perfect) is easier to manage. Anyway, it's the way it is. But i won't complain, it's more than i had hoped for.   :)

I really wish ST:I could have started in the TOS era.  However, I'm guessing that would have required a completely separate license, and that it would have been cost-prohibitive to purchase two of them for just one game. 

This is my one great disappointment. My dream game would take the early days of the Federation (or Empire) with tech and ship progression through TOS onward. I'll simply never love "Fat Enterprise" the way I love NCC-1701 no freakin' A, B, C or D   8)

Somewhere, somehow, I woke up in the wrong timeline. I'm pretty sure this isn't even my dimension.

I would imagine someone, somewhere, will mod it to reflect a progression from TOS (or even Enterprise) onward.

I know Birth of the Federation did that - I think the mod is called All the Ages. It's pretty awesome starting with the NX-01 and progressing through ships to the 1701-D, in general.

That would be a home run. And you're probably right....I can definitely see a mod to make that happen   :bigthumb:

Ultimate Mod 5 did something similar for BOTF, where you started out with Oberth, Miranda, Constitution-class, etc.  UM5 also added several TOS minor races to the game. 


In any case, I'm certain a TOS mod will be one of the first major mods we see become available for Star Trek: Infinite once it's released.  :)

About  4 hours in so far. It has a good tutorial, especially if you have never played Stellaris before.
Seems a bit slower paced than Stellaris, which is fine for me, gives a bit to get into the story.
Lots of Star Treky stuff in it.  :bigthumb:
Very Stellaris like but some differences too. Missing some of the current Stellaris quality of life stuff but not all, it has auto survey for science ship for example.
Still need a lot more game play for a full review but, for me, it’s fun. It will be interesting to see where they go with it.

BBMike will hate it because it’s not TOS.  ;)
