Star Trek MMO confirmed

Trekkies rejoice

Star Trek fans longing to be captain of their own Federation Starship online will be happy to note Cryptic Studios is developing a massively mutliplayer online role-playing game (MMORG) called Star Trek Online. It will be available for both console and Mac formats.

Cryptic Studios has plenty of experience developing MMORPGs via its popular Champions Online franchise. Cryptic says Star Trek Online will let you explore the Star Trek universe in 3D graphics as it "moves into the 25th century." You'll be able to captain your own Federation or Klingon ship, customize it with systems of your choosing, recruit and create your crew, beam down to planets and engage in space battles. There will also be options for player-generated content.

Cryptic, which secured the rights for this online title from CBS Consumer Products, isn't the first to attempt this MMORPG. P2 Entertainment, which originally had the rights, stopped working on it in January. The title sat in limbo until it was picked up in the last few days.

The Star Trek Online developer promises to unveil gameplay footage as well as more details at the annual Las Vegas Star Trek convention on August 10. It will also stream the event live via the MMORPG's Web site.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
