Was sort of just browsing through youtube and I came across this. Wow. This is a *big* change from the original tutorial I played on STO when it first went F2P. It hits all of the right buttons - almost every core mechanic got blatantly shoved in your face (that's a good thing, really), and it kept the general "flavor" of Trek (even the dumb parts, like the 'newly graduated cadet taking over as captain when the real captain dies' that probably got borrowed from the reboot Trek).
Makes me want to replay the STO tutorial again. Also, it seems they've introduced the Romulan faction too. (With Sela.) Mmmmmarrrrgh......
I did a little more digging and found that the revamped tutorial was released in Nov. 2013. So almost 2 years from when it went F2P... and like 4 years after it was first released.
Gives me hope that GW2 will eventually gain a decent tutorial as well in a couple of years. =P
EDIT: Oh wow, prophetic!
"To prepare the game for its eastern release, we’re building a new comprehensive “level zero” optional tutorial that teaches the core basics of the game. We’re also adding new story steps at levels 5 and 10 to help better teach core mechanics as players grow. We will also be adding a much better hints system, and a new level-up messaging system all to better teach the game.
All of these systems will be added to the game not just in the east, but to help future new players in the west as well."
