Synopsis: Ten Ton Hammer's sixth episode of Loading... Live is joined by Star Trek Online Executive Producer Craig Zinkievich. We didn't have enough time for audience questions at the NY Comic-Con 2009 Star Trek Online panel, so Craig graciously offered to stop by for over twenty minutes of hard-hitting questions from the Ten Ton Hammer crew and the audience. Will the Borg be a playable at launch? Will reptilian and non-human races be available as avatars or bridge crew? How is STO's development progressing? Answers to this and dozens of in-depth questions in this entertaining Loading... Live dev chat with Craig Zinkievich!
