If there is one thing that hardcore Star Trek fans love to do is collect all things Star Trek related. That said, it’s no surprise that Cryptic would offer up a very juicy collector’s edition to their upcoming MMO Star Trek Online for fans to drool over and gobble up. For hardcore fans, this edition will be a must have for sure. Casual fans might not be so enticed though.
The CE version of the game will offer up the typical swag you would expect: brushed aluminum case, hard-bound manual and a cast metal version of the in-game communicator badge. The most notable piece in the CE is the in-game uniforms from Next Generation and Deep Space Nine TV series. So if you really wanted to make a Jean-Luc Picard replica then getting the CE version will be essential. If that isn’t enough to suck you in, there is also another in-game item — the Red Matter Capacitor will give you a temporary quick bolt of energy.
The CE will set you back $79.99 which for a hardcore fan will probably be a small price to pay. GameStop is offering up the special Constitution Ship and access to the open beta just for pre-ordering the game, while Amazon.com is also offering beta access for pre-orders as well. So you might as well kill two birds with one stone and pre-order the CE from either one of those outlets and find yourself getting beta access and then later on getting some awesome Star Trek swag.
