Do the bridge officers you take along follow your movements exactly, like pets, or are they capable of displaying some tactical intelligence, i.e. getting in some kind of formation or taking cover themselves behind the nearest objects, etc.?
Is a typical battle between two players and their respective away teams a long, drawn out affair, or over very quickly?
Can we expect to have multi-sided (i.e., more than two sides) battles? Like multiple factions or groups of NPCs that are all hostile towards each other and you, or NPCs getting involved in PvP to a small degree?
Can ground battles be large scale and/or objective based in PvP? i.e., some path to victory other than just straight up killing the other team, like control points or power cores to take over or destroy?
