[Ship-Talking Podcast] Episode 12: Al Rivera

January 29, 2021

Star Trek Online's Design Director Al "CaptainGeko" Rivera met us in Quark's Bar this week to talk sh*p. Not only did he speak about bringing ships into the game, but we also discussed balancing ships from various eras, ship ability design based on on-screen features, and more. An expanded chat with Al is exclusively available to our patrons at or above the Constitution-class tier on Patreon. Submissions for this week's Community Q were also shared before announcing the new one, and this week's All Hands on Deck Drill sent the community to the Holodeck to load up some historic ship battles. Hailing frequencies are always open at or email
