Gamespot was at this year's Gamescom and took some time to get behind closed doors with Craig Zinkievich. Check out their impressions here.
From the article:

Zinkievich said one of his favourite tactics is to have his science officer use a tacyon beam to knock out an enemy's shields, and then use his tactical officer to destroy the craft with torpedoes. After taking care of the Klingon ships, we discovered that some of the Klingons had beamed down to the surface to attack the monastery, and we beamed down to follow them.

great article, but when are we going to get something new? Also all of these articles read as though the writer is watching the developer play the game. Does that mean that the game is so far off that it is not playable at all. other than very limited missions? If so, then it is going to be a very long time until release.

I want to hear from someone, other than than a cryptic employee, who has actually played the game. Third person MMO watching then reporting just isn't that great.

I kinda giggled at the non-bb code for break in the OP that didn't translate properly.

"Star Trek Online is shaping up to be a Trekkie's dream, with plenty of .... diplomatic and research missions, and plenty of customisation of both the character and vehicles in the game."

Really? I'd love to hear all about those

I also note that once again we're being told about these things, and not shown them.

Otherwise, not an exciting interview, but not bad at all.

Except that the word is spelled "tachyon," dangit. :p

Haven't there been multiple references to proton torpedoes also though recently? That makes me a little more sad; as its a key component to Trek.
