I don't think this ship was a Luna, since Luna's have a more round saucer section. It could either be a customized version, or Polaris / Sol Class

Well it was clearly the Tier 5 Science ship. Still looked very cool.

Yeah, that secret project of theirs has been underway for many, many years...they have acquired and completed the games CO and STO during the time that one's been in development. Cryptics main page makes a mention of it, and there is a shot or two or artwork or something there but nothing to get excited about.

YES!!! Finally someone gets it. Anybody catch Jack's comment about how they didnt want to make STO like WoW because "everybody who LIKES WoW IS PLAYING WoW".

That was a nice, informative article. I enjoyed the historical aspects and how they also managed to put a human face on the folks at Cryptic. If they're that dedicated and worried about making a great Star Trek game, then we have nothing to worry about.

I really enjoyed the videos that were a part of this article, and I think it would be great if future articles could include something like this as well so that it's not just all information but also a little demonstration of how things will actually function in-game. Overall this is probably one of my favorite updates in recent memory. Keep up the good work!

Bet the boys a Perpetual wished they took up that job offer now! haha

Seeing those videos made me very giddy, which isn't an easy thing to do, so I'm very very excited now. That space combat looked great!

Excellent interviews!

That is boggling to me. I can see 75% saying "Thanks but no thanks, don't want to re-locate" due to family committments or whatever, but nobody took them up on the offer? Hmmm.

I know California is a big state and all, but I live in Texas and we have folks re-locating from Dallas to Houston, Austin to San Antonio and every combination all the time. It just struck me as odd.

Now worries though and it was a good piece of STO history to hear about. Good series of interviews.
That is disturbing....If Perpetual had zero employees interested in going to work for Cryptic to continue the development of STO then it is a GREAT thing that they did not have a chance to finish it.

STO needed to be developed by a company that would not only know the franchise, but live it, as Cryptic appears to be.

I also love that the studio has a minis table and someone has a very nicely painted Skorne army for Warmachine/Hordes. Now if the hospital I work at would just install a gaming table.
