"Q: What is Cryptic using from the previous development?
A: Star Trek Online is entirely based on Cryptic's design and built using Cryptic Studios' technology and assets. The former studio that we acquired the Star Trek game rights from had a huge amount of concept art created for their game – much of that is applicable, and we are taking advantage of it. But Cryptic's engine, technology platform and content pipelines have become so mature that with a small team we can quickly ramp up a project."
I loled to this, especially the last sentence. Not gonna bother saying why either xD
