Star Trek Online Starship Tactics and Bridge

Two new videos are now online for Star Trek Online that shows some off some features of the game. The first video shows off some of the starship fighting techniques using pre-beta footage. It shows how combat is handled within the game using various ship designs and I believe this is the first time the user interface is shown off.

The second video gives you a brief look at the bridge feature of the game, which will be an environment players can visit within their ship. Exactly what functionality the bridge will provide is unknown. It also shows off more battle footage and planet environments. Of note is apparently one of those planets is where the Guardian of Forever resides from the famous episode "The City on the Edge of Forever." I just hope that Cryptic got permission to use that character as its creator, Harlan Ellison, has shown in the past a williness to sue to get money for anytime any element form that episode is used without his permission.
