Did they just say that "visit the bridge" feature is being taken off? Okay for the first time I am mad at cryptic.
I don't believe that's the case since they are adding more bridges that you can add and even some you can buy.
From what I can tell, that newsletter is generated by a random word generator. It throws in the words Cryptic, STO and some of the Dev names as a way to make the words seem to pertain to this game. Otherwise it doesn't seem to make any real sense at all.
