Executive Producer Stephen Ricossa has announced that he is leaving Star Trek Online to work on other projects within Cryptic Studios. Andre Emerson will be taking over the position and brings "a wealth of video game industry experience and knowledge of STar Trek" to the game's production.
Star Trek has been part of my life since I was very young and the thought that one day I would lead a team that crafted such a fantastic game in this beloved universe was something I never thought possible. From the amazing stories to the interactions with the community, I’m a better developer for having worked on this game, a better leader for having worked with this amazing team, and a better person for having a chance to interact with and get to know all of you in the community.
Star Trek Online has one of the best, most passionate communities in the world. It has been my honor to have served as your captain for the past three and a half years. Thank you for all your support.
