Fan questions regarding the capabilities of bridge crews in the Star Trek: Online MMORPG were addressed recently by Star Trek: Online Executive Producer Craig Zinkievich.
As reported by Zam, Zinkievich explained how bridge crews will function, telling gamers that different ships will have a different number of stations on the bridge. “You’ll be able to activate different permutations of Bridge Officers,” said Zinkievich. “Most officers will be tradable, though some may be bound to you. You’ll be able to give them individual commands, as well command the entire group at once. And, of course, you’ll be able to customize the appearance of each officer.”
One question asked how players would obtain bridge officers. “You’ll get bridge officers all sorts of different ways,” said Zinkievich. “Starfleet/KDF will grant them to you; you’ll have the ability to recruit them from planets you’ve done missions for. Bridge officers end up being the ‘phat lewt’ of STO.”
In addition to regular bridge officers, other bridge officers will be available. “There are rare bridge officers as well,” said Zinkievich. “Some that you’ll only get access to when you do high-end content, some you’ll get through luck and exploration.”
