With its first doses of weekly content
a success, Star Trek Online
is in a fairly comfortable spot at the moment. But there are still places to expand, including the often-mentioned tools for user-generated content. Although the tool isn't yet in the game, executive producer Dan Stahl
has been discussing it for some time, and he goes into a bit more depth in a recent interview
. He also discusses some of the upcoming changes scheduled for the game's later major updates, including interior interaction and bridge officer voices.
Among the more interesting issues discussed is the impact of user-generated content on the game's licensing. Everything currently in the game required approval from CBS first, which Stahl states has led to some discussion about how the user toolsets will interact with the canonical fiction. He also discusses several improvements planned for season 4, and the possibility of more interaction with ship interiors starting in season 4 or 5. Star Trek Online
players are encouraged to take a look at the newest interview
for a clearer picture of the game's future.
