Glad to hear that the devs are looking into racial traits that resist / buffed by the affects of certain environments (like Andorians in the cold). I'm all for this. It certainly encourages me to diversify my crew.
I won't make the chat, so on to questions...
You said away teams are always 5 men? So does that mean I couldn't bring fewer officers if I wanted to?
Can characters fire while moving? And if so does movement lower your accuracy?
Can you explain a little better how personal shields work? Do they stop everything or only energy weapons? Do they completely stop damage or only reduce it by a certain amount / percentage? And will they ever get so tough that we'll see characters tank repeated phaser hits?
Can you clarify something from the Hailing Frequency interview where they discussed healing? At what sort of range will heals be done at (hand-to-hand range, pistol range, long range... all the above?)
