I'm interested to see how capable the name limiting system is.

Craig: Don’t know if there are any mechanical changes that we’ve “discovered” after viewing the film. We’re looking at more ways to make nods to the film – gotta find a way to get Keenser (or at least his race) into the game!
Keenser's the little green guy, right?

I agree that there should be Name Filtering for Ships ( 1 ship by each name) ..They should also not let main Trek Characters names to be recycled. Everything else is all good.

Keenser was the little reptilian found with Scotty.

It's interesting. Nice sidestepping by Craig... the ol' "We saw the movie and think it's awesome but our game takes place in a whole other universe where most things are different but it's still awesome" line! =)

yeah, hes the little dude that Scotty kept yelling at to get down off of stuff.

as ive said in the other thread, im not impressed. although the title for this one makes it hurt a bit less. its about the movie, not STO.

Craig, glad you guys realized the importance of humor. I really hope you manage to pull it off. (Hint: Plenty of opportunity with Tribbles and Klingons. )

I do look forward to see Keenser's race being in. Hope they are technically inclined.

Also the other licensers? Hope you tell us who else you working with. Be interesting to know if you got permission to use other Star Trek designs that was popular. Especially in the RPGs.


And looks like we will indeed have multiple ships with the same name zipping around the Galaxy. Well it's to be expected, after all 500,000 people, there isn't going to be room for many innovative names. Especially when you got many ships per person.
