TrekMovie.com, the web's foremost Star Trek blog, claims that it has "confirmed with sources" that Cryptic is the new developer of Star Trek Online. Just a couple of days ago, some forum-dwellers connected a lawyer representing STO back to Cryptic. A couple days before that, the STO website mysteriously relaunched. The clues don't end there, either.
TrekMovie is a fairly credible blog. It has an outstanding track record of inside scoops about the new Star Trek movie, at least. So: you know when two friends in your circle are sleeping together, and they want to keep it a secret, but every one knows, and it would just be easier for all involved (and not involved) if they'd just fess up? This Cryptic/STO relationship is looking a bit like that.
