Also to the naysayers who claim we don't know our trek - the majority of us have watched nearly every episode (if not all) of each series as well as the movies. There is a big difference between "knowing trek" and having to turn it into a multiplayer video game.
Nobody is perfect, mistakes are made, and given the ridiculous amount of information in the Star Trek universe, I don't think it's fair to say that they will get everything right every time (especially when even canon contradicts itself).
EDIT: I can't find the source that says they were watching episodes in the office. Perhaps I'm mistaken about that, but not about the fact that the devs watch Star Trek in general.
