This is certainly a nice surprise - I just received an email from Genetic Anomalies, the developer of the upcoming 'Star Trek: ConQuest Online' game, inviting me to participate in the online beta test of the game for journalists. There are apparently thousands of people also testing the game, so it's not really something very exclusive, but it's still great to also be able to take part. Jeff 'Koganuts' Koga, who went to the E3 gaming expo a few weeks ago (of which his first reports should start appearing this weekend) also received an invitation, so hopefully we'll be able to write up a short preview of the game, also looking at the multiplayer aspect. I'll in any case be trying out the game, and will of course let you know what my impressions are.
