I've been lucky enough to have a friend of a friend who had a private beta account, and from what I've seen your decisions and actions really affect the gameplay. Although I've only seen screenshots and heard rant after rant of how good the private beta is, it has definately caught my attention.
The open beta begins on the Monday 31st, but the client has been available for open beta testers to download since Saturday.

A snippet of the story,
By the end of the 22nd century, the overcrowding of Earth’s cities, the growing drain on natural resources, and the memories of recent violence caused mankind to desire new and remote locations to start their lives over again. The International Space Administration’s colonization efforts provided the perfect solution – distant havens for hundreds of thousands of Earth’s citizens to take up residence. However, as colonization efforts spread and the Vortex-Net brought humanity to the stars in ever-greater numbers, mankind’s footprint became more noticeable on a galactic scale. By the mid-24th century Earth’s spreading population had become obvious, attracting the attention of a very hostile and aggressive alien race.promoted forum item
