Starships and crew members both play a big role in how players advance through Star Trek Timelines. This week, lead 3D artist Allen White and lead gameplay designer Tim Crosby reveal the Constellation class while talking about Hero Ships, such as the USS Stargazer and Enterprise NCC-1701-D. They also discuss ship stats and even give a little tease about what players can expect with ship upgrades. We’ll be revealing more details and new features in the coming weeks.

Watch the video, here:

Really enjoyed seeing this earlier today on StarTrek.com and later on Facebook.

The DB team is spot on with what you are building and is going to be great to ENGAGE!

The Stargazer is beautiful.

Loving the USS Stargazer constellation class vessel. Practically had me at words “battle stations” as well. Looking forward to hearing about how combat works in this game during those situations when all else fails. Nice work!

This is an interesting question. Right now, we don’t have plans allowing you to own a starbase or spacedock. THose things exist in the game, but they’re not “yours.” We’re focusing on starships right now, but maybe you’ll be able to build a starbase in a future expansion!

Oh yes! You’re absolutely able to slow crew into different places - like Locutus into the bar at Ten Forward.

By the way I love new background with the Captain Kirk’s 1701 Enterprise in orbit of a planet on STT-Disruptor Beam main page. That is so cool looking.

How about spider Barclay as ship’s counselor?

Thanks so much for this juicy reveal! In the vid, the game screen shows way more than just the Con class ship.

It shows 3 types of ‘currency’ on top - gonna guess one is a dilithium/energy thing you need to get from one place to another, one an in-game regular currency (e.g., Federation ‘credits’) and a third is premium cash-bought currency (e.g., ‘latinum’).

I also see a PvP button (YAY!)

and a ‘chat’ button. hrrrrrm…. not to be a buzzkill, but I sure hope & pray that DB has realized the chat in GoTA is utterly fubar and has designed this chat ground-up to be more functional (i.e., some version of a 3/type chat such as other games have: private, world, and alliance, with action logs that can be activated and DEACTIVATED by the player as needed).

I see what looks like a galaxy map, which we’ve already had a reveal for

I see what looks like a wormhole…. very intriguing! Any comments, Shan, Khatie, or Nod?

And I see a ‘list’ which could be crew, or friends, or both.

Great vid overall, and it’s looking like things are shaping up well for a BETA RELEASE sometime soon after VEGAS?? <fingers crossed> <holding my breath>

ready to ENGAGE!!

Yes I am wondering about all that myself. I am curious about the combat system and especially the alliances which Shan gave a tip we won’t be using our own ships which hope to learn more soon on that.

I’m also grateful for the sneak peak of the ‘battle stations’ screen, with a few of the forthcoming crewmembers on display.

I’m guessing that we’ll need to make some tough choices about buffs/bonuses - if we place a crewperson in ‘battle stations’ for a challenge, they’ll need to be removed from a part of the ship that could confer a buff we’d like to have on that challenge. Just so y’know, I saw what you did there…
