USA Today writes: "With the official embarkment of Star Trek Online, the game's executive producer Craig Zinkievich of developer Cryptic Studios talked with Game Hunters about some basic tips for newcomers.
"You do start off as an officer in Starfleet," he says. "Shortly into the game, several hours into it, you will have be able to unlock the Klingon faction side. So, if you want, you can go over there and just play just as a Klingon. There are multiple character slots in the game so, sure start that Starfleet captain, play for as long as you want, maybe pop over to the Klingon side for a little bit. You can always go back and forth.'"
