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.

Enjoy!

  5. KinkyPinkie on January 30, 2019

    There could be a fleet dreadnought version, because even though the spinal phaser isn’t a console, the cloaking device is.

    Larger ships have more hull strength because they can take more damage before they are no longer operational.

    I think this is a question that no one ever askes. Why not Betazied why is that planet not in the game or Varidian system where the Enterprise D crashed landed???

  17. Jaison on January 30, 2019

    Hire Me Cyptic, I have so many Ideas for this game to make is great and make the fans love you its pittyful

  18. Jaison on January 30, 2019

    Why have you guys not done more with the interior of the ships like a deck by deck with Jefferies tubes shuttle bays instead of a guy in the transporter room, sorry to say that wack as hell. Don’t get me wrong I like what your doing by putting this game out. but, make this game a little more believable to be in the virtual Star Trek world like the game was going to originally be. like the Galaxy Class, I want to visit every deck of that ship and of all of them really. like being able to take over someone’s ship by using those duty officers thats you started. Being able to fight in Ten Foward or Sick bay, or in engineering …………ooooohhhhhhh don’t fire near the warp core or you might just cause a warp core breach, making mods to protect the warp core or different levels of force fields to contain intruders, hearing the computer say intruder alert!!! Cyptic Broading your ideas a little….please you can do so much more to make this game so much more interesting. Like making mission where you have to stabilize the warp core in time or the ship explodes by going to one deck to the next or in the Jefferies tube to re-modulate or decouple the stabilizers etc. make it a true game cause im tired of playing the same type of scenarios.

    At 46 min into the interview, Al mentioned you can use the T-5 consoles. I ask for clarification on what Al is referring too. Will we be able to move T-5 consoles around on Fleet Ships like we do now with T-4 and down consoles, becoming truly universal? Or is he just referring to the ownership of said c-store console in T-5 in the “Same” Fleet Ship making the universal consoles still not universal in T-5?

    Thanks for the great interview with Al, James.

    No T5 Connie…and yet, Cryptic once again dodges the question about the Excalibur and the Vesper…which THEY THEMSELVES stated are new ships built in the 2400’s and made them the “defacto” flagship of the game, y putting it on the box and featurng it all over their website.

    But, it would seem, because it shares a similar profile and silloutte as the Connie and Connie Refit, they will not have T5 versions, even though there will be T5 Novas and T5 Sabres.

    Loved this all ship segment! More ship porn, please!

    Would like clarification on why it’s so complicated on getting the Vesta in game when the Luna class (never seen in hard canon) was in the game from the beginning. What is the difference between the two? Also, put me down for one of the Lifers begging for the Voyager fleet being added to the game.

  27. Will on January 30, 2019

    Too bad there isn’t a transcript or summary of the interview. As a non-english person, it may be difficult to understand everything.

    • zmacgirthy on January 30, 2019

      There have been a lot of requests for this, so we are looking into it. Stay tuned for updates!

    i dont know why they dont want a T5 conny lol the ship was used during the dominion wars

    Later serviceEdit

    A Constitution-class ship served into the late 24th century and was destroyed in battle at Wolf 359; others, reactivated or still in service, fought in the Dominion War, and took part in the task force to retake Deep Space 9.—From memory beta
