29 June 2012 | Welcome Captains to a very special Supplemental broadcast of Priority One. Our discussion with Star Trek Online Lead Designer Al Rivera, was so full of fascinating STO knowledge that we decided to break it down into its component parts. This supplemental is a one on one interview between James and Al focused entirely on Ships, past present and future.
As usual, Al pulls no punches and delivers some of the most comprehensive answers in the STO Community. He touches on KDF, gets into Fleet Starbases, Tier 5 and beyond, and so much more! Take a seat and listen closely, because this is a veritable goldmine of information about what is to come in our beloved universe.

A long-time Trekkie, Elio has been watching the series since he was a child and sneaking in late night, back-to-back, episodes of TNG reruns. He finally embraced the Trekdom in college and spent many hours catching up on the entire multiverse…. instead of studying.
