Make it so: Star Trek Online to feature ship bridges


Yes, you read the title right! You're also not hallucinating the picture above either! You can actually sit on the bridge of your ship in Star Trek Online!

It appears Cryptic has decided to add the infamous setting to STO for players to enjoy as a social destination -- a hang out for bridge officers and visiting captains from other vessels. The Associated Press has reported that the game will feature 20 bridges at launch, giving even the most discerning captains their own pick on bridge design.

Regarding the addition of bridges, Craig Zinkievich, the executive producer of Star Trek Online, told the AP, "We didn't want to have interiors at launch. We thought it was just a little bit too much. We really wanted to make sure we delivered a really deep experience, but your bridge not being in the game, it really felt like a hole in the game, and it was just something that we had to put in."

We'll try to get you a more high resolution screenshot later, but for now, enjoy this brief glimpse at your future command chair.

Edit: We've added a new, larger picture, and three shots of the bridges to our STO gallery!
