Ask Cryptic (September 17, 2008)
 
Ask Cryptic returns with answers on ships, customization and PvP content. Thanks very much to our development team for taking time out of their busy schedules to answer these!
Federation ship classes are inspired by the television shows. So, for example, you could have a ship like the Enterprise, the Defiant or the Voyager. We call the different classifications of ships Cruisers, Escorts and Science Vessels.

PLAYABLE HORTA FIRST PLEASE

...

*cough*

Thank you for another awesome chunk o' info, guys. It's very very appreciated. I am very much looking forward to finding out if I can convert an Akira into a rockin' science vessel. :cool:

So playable Horta will be in the game at some point?

Though I don't know how a living rock is going to pilot a ship or do anything else on board ship. Though I want one.

Nice to hear we can use any ship regardless of our specialty, so maybe I can have a medical specialty and still fly my Akira which would more likely be a tactical specialty ship,

lets hope there will be npcs captable of keeping pvp gankers out of non pvp zones and protecting those that do not wish to pvp,
and also hope that the gms will take a grim look on those that attack others for no reason while they are just trying to do their unrelated mission.

More news, sweet. I still would like to know what happens to your ship when you beam down, especially in a PvP zone where it could be attacked!

I'm super excited about the bridge crew customization, and happy that player specialties don't limit us to certain classes of ships. Thank you, Cryptic. :)
