True. I suspect that these are "prototype" ground combat screen samples -- notice how all the Federation personnel in the one ground screen appear to be the same Vulcan female character model?

These screens are great to see (thanks, Cryptic crew!), but I wouldn't expect they're "finalized launch day quality" just yet.

My opinions, anyway,

"Klingon gameplay and advancement will be significantly different from the Federation."

Please show us how

Maybe even "the big" threat to the Alpha.
Good idea, but they're not all that ancient in trek history, so I don't think they are the "ancient threat", but that's not to say they're not a huge threat I do wonder if they're not an alliance with whom you might gain some favour for help fighting the Borg though.

As for the ancient threat, I can only (and continue to) guess. It'll be cool to see though

Wow! This set of screenshots was great because it showcased a wide variety of things in the game, some we know about and others that are things we have never seen before. What a great way to kick off the weekend -- thank you for posting these!

Yeah I’ve been wondering about the term ancient. What warp capable race isn’t “ancient”?
StarFleet seem to be the newest group out there and if you take in all of Terren history back to the stone age they’re an ancient race to.

In a gamersinfo article they said “In addition to pitting these two ancient enemies against each other, you’ll end up fighting against an unnamed ancient evil that threatens the entire Alpha quadrant” which may have been just one writers view but it shows “ancient” gets thrown around pretty easy.

Does ancient mean they were causing problems in space, specifically in the Alpha quadrant a long time ago? And if so is a long time ago before StarFleet was in space or just back to ENT era?

Whose to say thy'll join the Federation? With a Cardassian vessel, it seems more likley they'll either be NPC's for the time being, or join as part of the Klingon faction perhaps?

I just think that to be part of Starfleet you'd need a STARFLEET ship, whereas the Klingons wouldn't have such a specific ruling with regards to their fleets.
