# 1 View the Las Vegas Webcast

Our live webcast from Las Vegas may be over, but that doesn't mean you missed out!

Jack Emmert, chief creative officer of Cryptic Studios, was joined on stage by legendary Star Trek actor Leonard Nimoy. Jack talked about Cryptic's plans for Star Trek Online, answered questions and showed the first in-engine footage from the game!

Check out our video page to see everything that happened!

The trailer, although impressive, seemed an anti-climax by its length and rapid scene cuts. Edit: Also, the echo-chambered narration was distracting. Edit 2: The downloadable trailer is far more impressive!

I really enjoyed the speech and Q/A. All of my fear about the direction of the game has been put to rest.

Thanks, Spork!

I loved Leonard's intro, the new information Jack provided, and the trailer itself was absolutely gorgeous. Do I spy the Cryptic AR and fully animated faces, much like we have in Champions? Awesome!

Thanks for the speedy upload of the video for those of us that weren't home to catch it. I saw it on YouTube.



Comments: I like what I see, but I'm concerned that starship combat is an external view option only. Please Cryptic say that is not so! Starship interiors for player ships are a MUST-HAVE for all phases of starship operations. The game has a ways to go and with earlier threads on the subject you can see how popular of a requirement it is for a EXCELLENT STO experience!

Thanks for listening...I hope!

I'm not sure if an interior view is necessary. After all if we're not directly controlling characters individually, I'm not too concerned with watching them do their thing. I'd rather watch the scenery and shootin'.

It's interesting that there'll be a break from levels for this game (at least in the traditional sense).

Romulan faction later? Cool, I can wait. But I certainly hope I can make a Romulan Star Fleet officer, mind you

Holographic bridge crew? Could they be more permanent, like the EMH Doctor in Star Trek: Voyager, or just temporary replacements for key bridge crew positions?

Answers can lead to more questions.... *sigh*
