Meet the Executive Producer

Meet the Executive Producer  -

Cryptic Studios has posted an internal interview with Star Trek Online Executive Producer Craig Zinkievich as part of their ongoing Meet the Team series of articles which introduce players to the developers behind the game.

It's taken us six months to bring you this one, so without further ado, we'd like to introduce our Executive Producer, Craig Zinkievich. Find out what makes the driving force behind Star Trek Online tick!

What do you do on Star Trek Online?

I’m the Executive Producer on STO. I have to worry about every single aspect of STO. From the design vision to making sure the art gets executed, making sure that software does what they need to do. I have to make sure that, ultimately, you guys get to play this game. Basically, if something on the project goes wrong, everybody in the company can point at me. Woohoo!

How long have you worked in gaming, and what did you do before Star Trek Online?

I have been in gaming for 6 years now. I came to Cryptic as a technical designer back before COH shipped. I enjoyed designing game systems for COH, working with Software to make sure that they implemented systems that the designers could use and then working with Design to make sure that they used the systems properly. Eventually it got to the point that I was working with and scheduling Art to make sure that they were making art that fit into the systems that we had designed. And then – wow– we all realized that that’s what producers do. And so I became producer for COH and COV and then Director of Production at Cryptic Studios for the past few years. Now I’m Executive Producer on STO.
