I've played this game a good long time, but it's been a long while since I played through most of the early missions. Boy, I'd forgotten how AWFUL the acting is in this game.
I mean, every single klingon sounds like a barking dog. They're all closing off the back of the throat and grunting their lines with pursed lips. It sounds ridiculous (and tiresome), and it's not even what klingons sound like. In the entire history of Star Trek, dating back to Kor in Errand of Mercy, there's been perhaps 3 or 4 who spoke the way they're ALL doing in the game.
It's the same with the Ferengi, all squeaking like Grand Nagus Zek, instead of speaking normally, the way EVERY other Ferengi in the history of the show has done.
Then there's all the villain characters, from Dr. Cooper, to every Vorta in the game, and on and on. They should all have moustaches to twirl like Snidely Whiplash, because their lines are all delivered with melodramatic pauses and emphasis. Even Denise Crosby's work is that way, sounding like an adult reading a fairy tale to a small child.
As an actor myself, I'm pained by these performances. Perhaps they should go back and rerecord these.
Once, I was simply called Mojo. Now, I'm forced into a new name, but don't be fooled, I'm the original STO Mojo!
This game needs detailed crafting, exploration and interaction systems.
