Xboxes. They're quite the money drain. The system itself, then the expensive games... and now I face shelling out more money so that I can get the advanced scart doodad that allows me to have 5.1 sound. Good old Microsoft, you've got to love them. By the time I've bought the scart and an interconnect, it's another £50 (US$75ish) poured into that little Microsoft box of evil.
It'll be worth it though, so I will get it. I just want more games to come out first, the same principle on why I'm not buying Xbox live yet.
'Star Trek Shattered Universe' looks good from screenshots, so I hope that it will be a good game. But really, I'm just waiting for anything that a)fun and interesting, and b)not about going around endless levels shooting things or skateboarding. Believe it not, games that meet these criteria are few and far between. But that Xbox day will come!

Trek Two Years Ago
- Trek X To Involve Cloning & Romulans
Rick Berman gave some of the first insights into Nemesis. "All I can tell you now about the plot is that it will deal with a supreme and hopefully memorable villain. There's some cloning involved, and there are also a lot of Romulans involved. But I will say no more."
- Rick Berman Talks Series V Premise
Berman also spoke about the then-upcoming Series V. "It's closer in tone to TNG or the original series than either DS9 or Voyager. It takes place in a different time than any other Star Trek series to date. We'll have seven regular characters, five of them human, two of them not. [...] We'll also have a kick-ass spaceship. I wish I could tell you more, but I can't."
