So another question for those who have the beta...

Do you get to design your bridge officers?
Nope.
I'm sorry, but this is wrong. You have near total control over your bridge officer's appearance, skills, qualities, the works.
Not exactly. You cannot select innate traits and you can't change gender/species. You can train new abilities for them, but it costs prestige or whatever they call that currency. So basically what you have to do if you want to fully customize your officers is to first pick one with the correct race/gender (of course you can always pick an "unknown" race, but then the innate traits are random), customize their appearance and then unless you got really lucky, go and buy the abilities you want for them. This is all doable, but it will take time and points... and you still never get to pick the innate traits, which amount to passive bonuses.

It's also made a bit dicey by the new feature they added last night where every few levels you get an uncommon or rare bridge officer with better innate traits... but give you no choices as to their race/gender. So if you want to get the bonus from any of those, it looks like you'll be locked in. You can still customize within those boundaries of course... but damnit, Bolians are ugly, I don't want any on my bridge

Sure, if you want to spend the cash to do that, otherwise you get what you get.

Re: Star Trek: Online

Very cool...buy the way McAfee gives your site a yellow rating???

When we visited this site, we found that its primary purpose may be to capture traffic meant for komli.com, a more popular site with a similar name.

Re: Star Trek: Online

Not entirely sure what that means, but it could have something to do with the web host?

I use 000webhost.com for my site, nice and free, decent amount of space, and I'll stop there before this turns into an advertisment.

Anyway, could that be what McAfee is crying about? Either that or it knows who I am and is making stuff up cause it knows I don't like it.

Customizing appearance, uniform and name is free the first time you get a BO, within the bounds of race/gender of course.

Actually, even aside from race. Sure, it'll still "be" human or trill, or whatever. But my "andorian" bridge officer looks more like the soul hunters from B5

Not to my knowledge. When i started the Open Beta, I didn't have to fill one out.

This doesn't change the traits the characters have though, some of which are race dependent. And there's some wiggle room in appearance for sure, but you can't turn say a Vulcan into the appearance of a Saurian.

NDA only applies to the closed Beta. There is no NDA for the open Beta.
