DevChat Transcript Available - Star Trek Online -

A brief but informative devchat for Star Trek Online was conducted recently, and the transcript is now available. The topic of the devchat centered around the skills & progression in the game, serving to clear up a few questions some fans have been confused about.

An excerpt from the chat below:

<BizarroDaeke> <WebGuest03> Question: We know that at some point a player may level up and learn all the skills in the game. Is there a restriction as to how many of these are available for use during combat. For example, if a player learns 34 skills can he mapp all 34 to buttons/keys and use them in combat. Is it the same for land and space?

<Cryptic_Geko> You get to use/keep ALL your skills all the time. you don't need to pick them to make a "build". "Skills" are typically passive bonuses that are always active, so your Photon skill will improve all your photon attacks, and your deflector skill will make all deflector abilities better.
<Cryptic_Geko> What you will have to do is pick the right weapons, items and Bridge Officers for your ship - so that is your "build". You make a similar decision when you choose your away team or your ground Kit and weapons.

The full transcript is available here.
