Star Trek Online Ask Cryptic Q&A

A new Ask Cryptic Q&A is available, with questions pertaining to Star Trek Online.
Will ship roles be analogous to naval combat roles or will they be more like the party roles in other MMOs will ships be cruisers or destroyers or they be tanks or healers?

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.

More details on the exact roles and differences are coming soon, but for now, suffice it to say that the ship roles are a combination of naval combat and traditional MMO gameplay. Klingon ships are different, and reflect their style and culture. And everything will be very customizable and very Star Trek.
