Star Trek Online Meet the Team Q&A

Cryptic seems to be fond of on-site “Meet the Team” Q&As, as they introduce lead designer Al Rivera from the Star Trek Online team.

Q: What part of Star Trek Online are you the most excited about working on?

A: Space combat. I am a combat system designer at heart, and I am very excited about the system we have worked out for space combat. Space combat is nothing like typical MMO combat, nor is it a dogfighter. It is deeply tactical, strategic and 100 percent Trek. Shield facing, turn rates, weapon firing arcs, power transfers, bridge officer skills, ship configurations and damage control are all things you will need to manage. We also are working on mechanics for different levels of automation if you want a simpler experience (put some weapons on auto fire, power level presets, that sort of thing).
