Ask Cryptic: Ground Combat - MMORPG.com

This latest edition in the Ask Cryptic series brings us an overview of ground combat in Star Trek Online. Ground combat in STO will always consist of a five man Away Team, this team can be comprised of up to five players, with any gaps being filled in with Bridge Officers from your crew, or a selection from other group members' crews.

Bridge Officers are treated like pets, with a variety of basic functions such as aggressive, defensive, and assist commands. As for the players, they can also equip Kits which add an additional four abilities alongside whatever abilities your profession (Science, Tactical, Engineer) already provides. The kits are limited by profession and rank, with three kits per profession for a total of nine. Examples of some of the abilities kits will provide include: holographic soldiers, stasis and force fields, defensive and offense buffs, and more.
