In the first great space race, world super powers competed to achieve milestones in space exploration. Fifty years later, the world as a whole (those of us with broadband anyway) is gearing up for a new space race. At stake this time is which space-themed MMOG can get a foothold in a market dominated by fantasy games. Ten Ton Hammer's Danny "Ralsu" Gourley offers his predictions for Jumpgate Evolution, Star Trek Online, Star Wars: The Old Republic, and Stargate Worlds:

BioWare, the force (tee hee) behind Star Wars: The Old Republic (SW:TOR or TOR), is famous for making quality games that deliver compelling plots. From Baldur's Gate to Knights of the Old Republic to Neverwinter Nights to Mass Effect, BioWare produces hits, so the potential for TOR is high.
