Red shirts, officers, captains, and Star Trek junkies rejoice. Cryptic has been busy updating their Star Trek Online website with more juicy tidbits of information this week. Not only have they made additions to their Ships Overview page, but information for how Crew and Bridge Officers will affect gameplay space-specific gameplay has been added as well.
The nameless men and women on a captainÂs ship are represented with the Crew statistic. TheyÂre the Âred shirtsÂ that take care of the litany of tasks captains and Bridge Officers donÂt have time or will to do, like repairing damaged subsystems or hull damage, repelling boarding parties, joining on boarding parties (which, if successful, damage an opponentÂs subsystems), and so on. Players wonÂt be able to interact with their crew on a daily basis, but their status will be visible, so captains wonÂt have to worry about getting caught off-guard if their crew isnÂt in tip-top shape.
