* MultiArmedAndDangerous: The Tzenkethi feature two sets of arms; one huge pair that would make Franchise/TheIncredibleHulk jealous, and a smaller pair used for more precise interactions.

*** One of the early story arcs for Klingon players is a full-scale strike on a Federation shipyard orbiting Mars...the planet ''right next to the one housing Starfleet Headquarters.'' The very next arc sees you and four guys invading Gre'thor, a.k.a ''KLINGON HELL,'' just so you can get a crack at killing Fek'lhr, a.k.a. ''KLINGON SATAN,'' for so much as ''looking'' at Klingon space with intent to invade it. If you need any further proof of the Klingons' BadAss credentials...

* DoNotRunWithAGun: Firing weapons (or taking fire, for that matter) in space missions will drop your ship from full impulse to a slower maneuvering speed. Full impulse will also divert some of your weapon power to the engines as well.

** Frankly, most of the ship variants count. Each Tier contains: 1) a ship from the TV series, and 2) two more ships that ''look'' different but are basically cosmetic redesigns. This allows the mix-and-match customization, since the warp nacelles, engineering hull, etc are all in the same position, but the cosmetic redesigns themselves are of variable aesthetic quality.

The Exploration Cruiser (''Galaxy'' pattern) is a particularly bad offender.

** The new ''Avenger''-class battlecruiser is clearly one of the U.S.S. ''Vengeance'' from ''Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness'' and the Borg Modified Romulan Lockbox ships are this of the ''Narada'' from ''Film/StarTrek'' (in fact, the storyline ship the Borg Modified Romulan Lockbox ships are based on was originally identified as Narada-class -- presumably the fact that technically the ''Narada'' is from the Prime Timeline gave them some leeway). Note that Cryptic cannot use anything from the Alternate Timeline Treks.

* MyGreatestSecondChance: In the Klingon mission "Afterlife", you'll find First Officer Doran, who was slain in the Klingon Tutorial Mission. You find out that her death was a one way ticket to Gre'thor, Klingon Hell. Your player convinces her to team up with her husband and give her a clean slate so she can go to Sto-vo-kor, Klingon Heaven.

** The [[Series/StarTrekDeepspaceNine Defiant-class]] and its variants, naturally. Made all the more apparent by the fact that lower-tier, weaker escorts (especially the Akira, the class you use before upgrading to the Defiant) are much, much bigger. And then you get the Vice Admiral- and the Fllet Admiral-tier escorts.

An MMO developed by Cryptic, makers of ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes'' and ''VideoGame/ChampionsOnline'', set in the original ''Franchise/StarTrek'' universe in the year 2409, thirty years after the last appearance of the [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Next Generation]] crew in film, and 22 after Romulus was destroyed in the prime timeline as per ''[[Film/StarTrek Star Trek XI]]''. The game was originally being developed by Perpetual, but was auctioned off as the studio was facing severe financial troubles at the time, and actually had to lay off nearly half of the development staff.

* DumpStat: For a long time, ground combat skills were a DumpStat because most players didn't want to waste valuable skillpoints on it when space combat was considered to be much more fun and the primary appeal of the game. This was changed, making it mandatory to invest 20% of one's skillpoints into ground skills, but mercifully added 20% more total skillpoints to allow for this without ruining the builds that veteran players had created. Now the DumpStat is a matter of playstyle: most players neglect science skills in favor of [[MoreDakka tactical]] and engineering (healing and survivability) skills unless they fly science ships. For science ship captains, tactical skills are the least relevant since they have fewer weapons per ship than either escorts or cruisers and they rely more on control and damage abilities in the science skill tree.

For just about every other player vs npc battle, skillpoints in damage resistance aren't even needed. The focus for the top players now is on inflicting maximum damage with weapons per ship than either escorts or cruisers and they rely more on control and damage abilities in the science skill tree.skills. Only two engineering skills out of a possible ten are still useful to throw points into: the ones that increase speed and maneuverability, and the energy output of the ship's warp core.
