On July 1st, 2012 Subspace Radio's DJ Concentus of Borg, will be interviewing CaptainGeko (AKA Al Rivera), Lead Designer for Star Trek Online. Concentus will be asking his own, and your submitted questions, so please send any questions you'd like to be asked to concentus@subspace-radio.net.

The Interview will be broadcast on a later date, so be sure to keep an eye out here for the details and be sure to get your questions in ASAP! Entry time for questions will closed on July 1st at noon EDT. Once the interview is edited and ready to air we will transcribe it as well for everyone.

Live Long and Prosper Captains!


PS: Questions about Foundry, Art or the Forums will be ignored.

PPS: If you were known by something on the previous instance of the forums and want your question to be attributed to THAT name, indicate it in your post. If you've got what name you were on the old forums in your signature, I'll use that one.

The opinions expressed in my posts are not necessarily those of my employer or Subspace Radio.
PS: My show is actually at 0200 GMT these days. I really need to dig up the PSD for that signature and redo it.

After endgame is brought up to speed in content and PvP, will we be seeing a focus on storyline missions both agnostic and Faction specific to complete the loose-ends and missing parts of the KDF and fed factions?
STO is very much an Adam One culture and completely inarticulate about Adam Two.

There have recently been new sectors of space talked about.
Will the content that becomes available in these sectors be focused solely on endgame ??
Will there be new dailies ?
What planets are we likely to see ? Will any have a new "social" zone aspect ?
Ferenginar ??

Why would questions about the Foundry be ignored?

Kind of wondering that myself, especially with Devs , including MornStahl saying that the Foundry was a big selling point for the LTS, and all the implication of deeper and better foundry functionality.

I have no idea, why questions regarding an aspect of the game they seem to be "pushing" would be ignored. But, it's the OPs podcast and questions. In the end I suspect that the answer is ... it's his show. (or Cryptic /PWE has said that No questions regarding these topics)

CaptainGeko doesn't work with the Foundry in his role as Lead Designer. Its the same with Art and the Forums.
Its mainly just the fact that he probably won't have an answer to a lot of questions that commonly get asked about the Foundry.

Lead designer has no involvement with the Foundry, huh? Ok then. I guess that explains some things.

Can we get more info on Starbase ships? A Dev Blog (or maybe post, can't remember which) gave an example called an "Elite Defiant". Does that mean it'll be slightly better than the Defiant Retrofit? What other sorts of ships can we expect from the Starbases?

How close are we to getting a Sovy Refit/Variant? What about a Fleet Escort Refit/Variant?

Is there any plan on adding in some kind of boff functionality to ground pvp or stf's? Aside from the fact being accompanied down to a planet by your senior officers is more realistic and in-line w/ cannon, bringing boffs into pvps would:

Allow captains to interact with their crew more
Allow captains to show off their boffs to other players
Increases the strategic possibilities in these matches

Added to the opening post:
So, as the LEAD designer, he won't have any answers regarding the state of various aspects of the game he is employed to "lead" the team in designing.

While he might not have specific answers, if he is truly the LEAD , then he should know ... ya know ... what's up with various aspects of the game. Maybe the parts that involve oh ... any design work whatsoever.

But as I stated , above. It's your interview man. My questions I posted follow your guidelines.
