Meet the Team - Al Rivera (September 8, 2008)
Learn more about Al "Captain Geko" Rivera, the lead designer of Star Trek Online!
My primary responsibility is to ensure that the team maintains that overall vision. This means writing design documentation, creating systems, implementing assets and managing the design team. It is also my personal responsibility to ensure that the work we do remains true to the IP. But most importantly, it is my job to make sure that the game is fun.

Well it's good to hear he will keep the game on course, and STO isn't going to be just a average game. Plus the fact he owns a Bat'leth, and that's very cool.

"This is not going to be another cookie-cutter MMO with a Star Trek skin on it."

Music to my ears. The lead designer sounds cool.

I will be taking a LONG break from the community forums. I trust Cryptic to do a good job until then, I hope they polish up the graphics and do not implement overly simplistic gameplay. Until there is serious information about the game, I will rejoin. It could be a month, it could be a year. we will see.

Makes Daron Stinnett seem like a distant nightmare. I hope we hear more from him regularly. For those of you who don't know, Daron was the PR man for PE for several years. Not very well-liked, to say the least.
