That's what I'm not sure about. I'm reserving judgment until more information is released.
I do like that they are putting time into combat systems because that's one of the main problems I had with EvE Online. It's shallow combat system left much to be desired, requiring no skill or just buttloads of time to achieve anything combat worthy.
I don't know how people can say combat was never a focus in Star Trek when the entire series has several episodes tied to someone shooting something.
DS9, voyager and Enterprise perhaps, but that wasn't so much the case with TNG and TOS, which represent the real "roots" of Star Trek, or as it boils down to, the Trek which Gene Roddenberry still had a hand of control over. Once he passed on, Trek became very combative, and drifted away from the original vision.
