You should watch the webcast. In the webcast he mentioned the truism that in both the star trek universe and in the real world, you dont have to be a captain in rank in order to be called the captain of a vessel. You just need to be the superior officer. We see this in first contact when LT Cmdr Worf was captain of the defiant at the battle of sector 01.
When you start the game, you wont start as a captain in rank, you'll just be refurred to as the "captain" of your own, tiny ship. As you work up the ranks, you than get to "captain" (as a verb) larger ships with bigger crews.
After watching the webcast as suggested (oops) i will revise my question. What rank do you start as, and what benifits does a Specialty give you for your captian? For example: Laura Ferron, my char, has a specialty in Tactical and Security. would she get benifits to combat on her ship, or against AI charicters, or other players? If in the event my Tactical or Security Officer is disabled, would she be able to command those aspects of her ship?
I would like to know if is just pc that is getting this mmo or will it be on them home consoles too. As well is the Q continium in here and if they are what role do they play would they give out tasks to prove our selves like on TNG or will they jus be for show
it is like that with eve part from in corp wars, and if someone just wants to attack you, they tank concord, thats the npcs that are meant to protect players from unlawful attack, some even just do it, if you have anything worth money in your cargo hold then have someone mainly their own alt to take anything that drops from your ship been as how their main ship gets destroyed by concord.
concords or resucing ships are so lame.. i am a eve player to but i cant wait till STAR TREK
still i like the unexploring space in deep tetor much beter for pvp so explorastion will be with more people in this case i hope
I got a question for you. In COH/CoV the PvP players have pretty much killed the game. Reason being is they get stuff nerfed to beyond useable. While NPC's stay they same. So a few guys with guns can pretty much kill what is post to be superman. So best way to really ask i think is.
Are you going to let PvP effect PvE gameplay pretty much?
Not everyone that will want to play this is wanting to PvP. I am in it to play Starfleet Captian with my friends. I been playing Pirates of Burning Sea lately and the game play is set up the best i seen.
O and when is closed beta starting? I am ready at any time and was signed up in orignal closed beta invite . So i been waiting on this a LONG time.
