MMO Week in Review: The planet of galactic peace


At the end of every week, we round up the best and most popular news stories, exclusive features, and insightful columns published on Massively and then present them all in one convenient place. If you missed a big MMO or WoW Insider story last week, you've come to the right post.

Three-year-old Star Trek Online loosed its Legacy of Romulus expansion this week, carrying with it the thrills of a third faction and the annoyances of extended downtime. Also? Lockboxes. Massively covered the expansion with a content roundup, an interview with Cryptic's Dan Stahl, and a primer to catch returnees up on the newness.

Read on for a look at the rest of this past week's top MMO stories.
