It is assumed that you will NOT be able to just phase thru solid matter like ships or planets. That would take some gameplay out of the game such as last chance ramming an enemy to kill them. Friendly ships are unknown, you may be able to fly thru them do avoid "friendly fire" situations. WoW has servers for PVP damage were all damage is felt even by friends or comrades. Unknown if STO will offer this as well

Again, unknown as of yet. It would seem that entering warp to a specific place would be a load screen of sorts but they havn't said anything about it yet. Warp factors and the like have not been given attention during the Ask the Dev. segments.

Lets hope so, otherwise exploration may not apply very much at all...

Hopefully, yes. It was a main focus in the show and makes a ships speed very important during gameplay.

As far as ships go, let go of any assumptions you have about seeing your favorite ship in use here. The game takes place 30 years after known ST history so many ships will be altered/refit or simply decommissioned in this time. The Klingons are known for sticking with what works, after all, the Bird of Prey and K'ting'a have been in use for the Empire for centuries so I would think you would still see them around, maybe with upgrades to systems but basic look still intact. So far they have only released pics of new Federation ships so I have no clue what to expect from the Empire. These are all assumptions and educated guesses.

YES!!! The Federation may not have this ability because they are passive so they must befriend new civilizations and hope to gain their resources that way. But the Klingons CONQUER! So one would expect that the difference in gameplay between the two races would be that the Federation makes 1st contact with a helping hand and the Klingons do it with a phaser!

Remember, these are just resonable assumptions based off what they have released to us all so far. I would suggest you go to the main page and read all the articles posted so far to catch up. And definately read the Path to 2409. The interesting things located there will help you when assessing what will be capable of the game, in some cases.

And yes, this is a good place to ask questions. You may find a more suitible forum thread for more precise answers in the forum main page but any thread is a good place for questions.

Take care and I hope to see you in battle you smelly Klingon targ!:p
