Posted Mon, Sep 21, 2009 by Dalmarus

The 15th installment of Ask Cryptic has been posted and this time, it's all about player progression. Whether you have a passing interest in the game or are a die hard Trekker that can think of little more than Star Trek Online, the topic of how your character progresses is an important one. Tired of feeling like your hands are tied when it comes to choosing new skills in a game? Then you're not going to want to miss this!

Mach789: By the time I reach Admiral, will my skills be locked or will I be able to max out every skill eventually?

You can max out every skill eventually. We plan to keep adding skills to keep ahead of people, and by the time you’ve progressed through the endgame content, you’ll only have about half of the total skills you can acquire anyway.

We do need to clarify one thing, which is in regard to this question and the previous one: The profession you choose – say, Engineer – will limit the ground skills available to you, but not the space skills.
