GamesRadar writes: "Amidst the blaring siren of a new Star Wars MMO (The Old Republic), you could be forgiven for overlooking the emergence of the first details of Star Trek Online. Cryptic Studios, of City of Heroes fame, helm this highly anticipated stellar venture, which means that at the very least we'll be able to fiddle with a Play-Doh Klingon's face until it looks just the way we want it.
In fact, the character customization will go beyond anything City of Heroes offers, seemingly approaching Spore levels of creative possibility. Stick a Klingon fanny-forehead on a Bajoran face and give it Vulcan ears if you like, as you're not restricted by Star Trek's canonical species at all. You can customize your ship too, from the livery of the runaround you're given on starting, to your epic Voyager-class vessels. Aping Spore yet again, you'll be positioning nacelles and saucers to your tastes."
