I want to know about the roles players will play in the party, I understand that every one will have an away team and you pick a role in this team like say science or engineering officer, but will some one be a healer some one support tank damage dealer ect. I know that in most MMOs that people will try to fall into their old roles that they have from other MMOs. So if I am support will I be locked out of healing and likewise will healers be unable to help augment their away team's base stats and ability to take/deal damage.
Also will the scaling of instances scale if we pick up a new ensign that has a talent for making sensor shadows so I can get him up to speed? or will I have to get him behind my tactical officer and tell him to get down and shut up?
I am not sure if this is relevant or not but will our kits be customizable even across factions? (i.e having a Klingon medic get a fed med tricorder)
