STO: Interior Ship Design, World Record

Cryptic has indicated that it has every intention of opening up ships for more player interaction. Currently the only interior of the ship available to players is the bridge but that may not last long.

"Anything we can do to make the game feel even more like Star Trek is something we want to do ... so, definitely, we want to give people more of their ship," he tells Inc Gamers, adding, "This is one of those things we want to get perfect before introducing it to players, though."

As someone with some experience with MMORPG's, often developers have great ambition for their games but time and resources can interfere with execution so this is one of those ideas that I would not focus on until official announcement of its release date.

According to the Times Online, Star Trek Online fans in the UK showed their love on Valentine's Day by breaking the world record for most costumed Star Trek fans gathered in a single place with 99 total. Atari celebrated the record by giving lucky participants in the event free lifetime subscriptions to the game.

Gaz Deaves, editor of the Guinness World Records: Gamer’s Edition said “We’re pleased to kick off this category here in London and hope other Star Trek fans around the world will come forward to break this record again.”

Congratulations to them. I suspect this is just the beginning of these kind of records involving STO players.
