Teasing us with those frustratingly tiny screenshots of Romulan character creation. Oh Cryptic...

If that's what the character selection screen will eventually look like, I aprove. Your captain and boffs, in ACTION!!!

Right now they're all just doing the cadet review stand behind you, not nearly as epic.

I like the new selection screen - it felt for a while like Cryptic were letting your crew fade into the background and not emphasizing their role in the game, but when the last patch went onto tribble and I saw my away team standing around my captain, I loved it. I just realized how ugly some of my away team boffs are and will have to change some assignments around.


I like the screenshot of it even better: the crew isn't just standing around you like they do on tribble, but doing stuff. I see they're all showing kit visuals. Was that just a mocked up image, or is that something you're sneaking into LOR?

The concept art, with your BOFFs in action, is what we're working on and our goal. Stay tuned for future Tribble patch notes!

Also, many have been wondering where the idea for this type of character select screen came from. Here's a section from the blog, in case you missed it:
Quote:
New character selection - also meant to evoke the vast scope and feel of exploring the Star Trek universe, this composition pays homage to the pantheon of great Star Trek movie posters by featuring both your crew and starship!
Cheers,
