Wow. Long article. Makes a change from the last few (not that they were bad mind you). Thanks for the heads up

I swear if I see this quote again I'm going to track down Zinc and erase the English language from his mind so that he might learn to say something else! (I know somehow it'll backfire and we'll all see that quote again in Spanish or something.

Away missions always require a group of five. If you're playing with four other players, you'll all be captains. If you're going solo you get to choose which bridge officers should fill the gaps - an important decision, as it determines the kind of gameplay experience you'll enjoy. Here, in the wonderfully named "Away Team Picker" screen, Andy has the aforementioned Hope, Jinn, Sasa Mira and the mysterious Red Shirt for company (don't tell him, but we reckon poor old Red Shirt doesn't stand much chance of surviving).
Wait, can we pick a random red shirt to join the away team? Or was that poor character called 'Red Shirt'? (Those are some cruel parents if its option no.2)

It's a nice little preview. Having someone elaborate on the BO powers and how they are used in space combat was good.

I like the fact that Craig got disappointed by a lucky shot destroying all three Klingon Ships, but I personally am starting to wonder what the Klingon Missions will be like.

It has been previously stated that at the begining of the game, when you still don't have enough BOs, red shirts ocupy their places on away teams.

Pretty much the same info as the previous reviews but I must admit he added some humor to it to make a more interesting read.

Although a lot of this article is the same info we've seen a dozen times already there is some new stuff too.

One bit I noticed, he didnt seem to have a helm officer. Do we get one later, on bigger ships or do we, the captains fly the ships all the way through? I'd like to see us get a helm officer to provide some extra manuvers, attack patterns, sudden turns, short warp jumps or something.
