Federation ship classes are inspired by the television shows. So, for example, you could have a ship like the Enterprise, the Defiant or the Voyager. We call the different classifications of ships Cruisers, Escorts and Science Vessels.
This is good news...
... not so good would be any notion of typical MMORPG "classes" in ship combat - like for instance a "healer" ship class. Please tell be we wont have ships firing "healing beams" to "heal" damaged ships.
Thanks for the addition information, Cryptic dudes and dudettes.
Customizable uniforms ftw! I was hoping for this from the get go but was worried after previous interviews/Q&As. I wonder what "popular pieces" means though.
Ship crew customization I was expecting but good to hear confirmation. I hope I can even customize their personality/demeanor like changing the style they respond back (Stubborn, Shy, etc), but as long as I can add on an Officer history or bio I'll be happy.
Love that ships come in different roles but I hope there are a couple more like Destroyer, Frigate and Supply. Can't wait for the specifics for each role!
3d chess and Ground combat. Yay for both though looks like I'll have to wait for the chess
