2010: Will Star Trek Online Make It?
  • Is it Trek enough for the hard-cores? Is that a bad thing?
  • Is STO dependent on the new movie franchise? 
  • Is Cryptic prepared for a Star Trek game?


Ask Cryptic:  Klingons!  (part2)
  • Warzones can be completed without PvP opponents
  • Deep Space Encounters = PvE

Name that Starship!
  • Cryptic original designs:  T5 Cruiser, Escort, & Science.

Cryptic holds special Holiday Edition IRC Trivia w/ beta giveaways... and watches it blow up in their faces.

  • Cryptic's aim is to NOT separate PvE from PvP mechanics, and instead have the player's only adaptation in PvP be outwitting smarter opponents.
  • Lots of great descriptions of different PvP scenarios/maps.
