United Mining Exploration Commission: A group of friends playing JumpGate-- "a MMORPG that launched smoothly, breaks from fantasy character setting, emphasizes PvP, and is the first persistent world space simulator that nobody talks about." ~Scorch

Will JG be referred to the same way Medidian 59 is?
Mark Asher at CGonline.com describes 3DO's meridian59. sound familiar?

The game was plagued by poor customer service and there were a number of player killers who drove some players away.
He actually goes on to describe the mmogs of the future and here's jumpgates 15seconds of fame:
Quote:
Jumpgate
Developer Netdevil
Publisher TBA
Release Date Q2, 2001
Jumpgate is a persistent sci-fi universe. It's basically Privateer or Elite in a massively multiplayer universe. Players will engage in ship combat, trading, smuggling, research, and more. Use money to upgrade your ship and hire new pilots to command a fleet. This game should make it out in 2001.
BTW, that site mentions that EVEonline is due out february 2002, NWN in March 2002 and a host of others in march. hmmm...looks like ND has some breathing space. (especially since starwars galaxies still has a year of development)
