Cryptic's Jack Emmert unveiled the first Star Trek Online details, revealing that you will start as a captain of either a small Starfleet or Klingon Empire ship, customize your characters as an existing Star Trek species or create a completely new race. You'll venture through space exploring galaxies, new civilizations and life-forms, beam down to planets, have adventures inside your ship or investigate outer space. STO is set a few generations after the Next Generation, so people, ships and locations, may look familiar but will have retired or evolved.
