Star Trek Online’s former lead producer departs Cryptic

Zorp? Phasers don't go zorp.

With several series finales and touching moments in history, fans of Star Trek have many ways to say goodbye. Now that former lead producer Maria Rosseau has departed Cryptic, many Star Trek Online fans are going with the time honored “all good things must come to an end,” as seems fitting. The good news is that this was in no way a sudden or unplanned departure and appears to be Rosseau simply moving on to other opportunities. There’s been no official statement on the matter, but since one of the game’s community managers is posting pictures of her farewell dinner, it seems to be a goodbye on good terms.

It should be noted that Rosseau had already departed STO to work on a separate project within Cryptic, presumably the still-in-development Magic: the Gathering MMO.

On an unrelated note, it’s been a long time since we’ve seen anyone create something truly bonkers in the game’s character creator, hasn’t it? Let’s check out The Joker in Star Trek Online, then. Yes, this is a thing someone made. No, we don’t yet know how someone would make a hero to stop him. We can guess it’d be in a bad-shaped ship, though, so probably some Romulan ship.

@MassivelyOP The Tweet in the post suggests Maria Rosseau is leaving Cryptic, not just moving to another team within it.
