Jack Emmert, chief creative officer of Cryptic Studios, was interviewed by the Associated Press about Cryptic's plans for Star Trek Online:
"You'll venture through space exploring new civilizations and life-forms," said Emmert. "You'll also beam down to planets and have adventures inside your ship. It's a galactic-wide game. There's going to be tons of space to investigate. We have a great system for exploration, which will allow for almost infinite possibilities."
