Catch up on your Star Trek Online essentials

For anyone who's missed out on the information train for Star Trek Online, a good place to catch up would CVG's recent preview. The reason being that it touches on all the basic talking points for Cryptic's crack at Star Trek Online. There are even a couple things in this preview that people somewhat familiar with the upcoming title may not know about -- probably due to Cryptic living up to their name when it comes to information. One such detail concerns a player's bridge crew and the fact that they level up along with the Captain of the ship. Another would be that the general crew (or redshirts) while expendable, will serve as a sort of resource mechanic in the game.

It's a short yet interesting read, perfect for killing a few minutes while satiating your Star Trek nerd lust.
