Star Trek Online devs talk about 2019 content updates and vague 2020 plans in a podcast

Right before the folks at Star Trek Online took their holiday break, there was time to speak with the Priority One podcast about how the game handled developing content in 2019 and some ideas on what players can expect going in to 2020.

The interview segments feature content designer John Hegner, lead producer Jarrod Fisher, executive producer Andre Emerson, and community manager Mike Fatum. The devs discuss the challenges with creating content in tandem to the premiere of Star Trek Discovery episodes, a look back at STO’s 2019, discussion about changes and their impact to the game, and a couple of vague teases for 2020 including promise that the game is working on something that players should be excited for and promise of something special for the upcoming 10th anniversary. Unfortunately, details were rather scant due to fear of spoiling things.

You can check out the full podcast on the site or get to the STO developer stuff with the handy media players on the game’s website. You can also get some more with the devs in yesterdays Ten Forward Weekly, which is summarized on Reddit.

Seems at some point near the end Emerson went to reveal something about lockbox ships and Fatum(CM Ambassador Kael) warned him if he really wanted to reveal it now. My suspicion since they give hints for long asked things they listen for is that they will make lockbox ships account bound.

I really hope the 10th anniversary ship is more standard fed/rom/klingon ship rather than some vague race that comes out of no where.

A good(but cheap in design terms) idea could be give a promo t6 ship box that normally comes from the R&D event boxes so people choose a rare ship of their own choice. But not going to happen soon

10th anniversary should be the long asked for T6 Connie/Refit/Exeter.

T6 Connie (about 5 of them) are already in game. TOS, Refit, Kelvin, DSC and the Exeter skin can be used on any of those.

I’d prefer a T6 Vo’Quv finally personally :)
