97. So, about starships Jul 29, 2008, 19:31 Creston
 
It sounds like everyone now gets their own starship, that you crew with NPC crewmen? And you can upgrade your ship etc, whatever, but the idea that eventually, say, a guild could get a Galaxy class starship and needed ~ 60 or 70 people to fly it is no longer in the works?

To be honest, that idea seemed pretty cool to me.

Also, is there just nothing announced except Federation and Klingon? No Romulans? Ferengi? Cardassians? Breen? Borg? Or is it set in stone that it's just Federation & Klingons?
