Star Trek: Online Executive Producer Daniel Stahl has resigned from Cryptic Studios and will depart at the end of the month.
Last year, Stahl replaced Craig Zinkievich, and Stahl will be replaced temporarily by CTO Stephen D’Angelo until a permanent executive producer can be found.
In Stahl’s resignation post, he said: “All good things must come to an end. Today I am announcing my departure from Star Trek Online and Cryptic Studios. For three years I have been humbled to work with such a fine crew to ensure that Star Trek Online became a reality. Through many months of hard work and countless good and bad days, we have created a living galaxy where anyone could boldly go. I’m now confident that the future of Star Trek Online is secure with Perfect World. While there is never a perfect time to leave such a good thing, I’ve chosen to move on in my career and pursue new challenges. This was a difficult decision but ultimately one that will start a new chapter for me and my family. My time at Cryptic has been wonderful and I strongly believe in all the employees of this company.”
Until his departure, Stahl will be “fielding interviews, answering questions and working toward ensuring STO free-to-play has an amazing launch later this year.”
