When you get a new ship, do you have access to all the ship's customizations or do you get each customization part from crafting and loot?

In the same vein, what's crafting like?  Is getting resources something you do during missions, or is it a grind?  Ditto on creating things - from what's been released if you have the parts there's no skill issue in creating it - but are recipes found, purchased, traded?  That sort of stuff.

Can you talk about how the EXPOSE and EXPLOIT features work in away missions?  Is it obvious when you outfitting your crew what to do and do your BOs use the features automatically?

Can one ship block fire from another ship?  In early interviews this was impossible.  However in a recent dev interview it sounded possible.  That opens the door to fleet formations and tactics that can be used as screening elements.  Can you clarify how this works (e.g., is it possible, is it a only a special feature of cruisers, or can any ship do it).

[Edit - skip question -
In the beta, I understand every is using Ventrilo.  That will go away during live play - using your imagination, for people that have never player and never played with other players, how bad is it going to be lose voice communications.

Jeremy & Chris of STOked are answering questions on the live show - one of the things they said is that the game loses a lot without voice communications.  Fleets/Houses will use something like Ventrilo of course, but PUGs via AutoGroup are going to be a BIG problem]

Any idea whether the "red matter" device from the Collector's edition will be outdated by the time we are in tier 5 ships?  Or will it and/or the borg bridge officer be useful end game?

All preorder items will only be good till around 20 hours of gameplay... (As stated by Cryptic)

You can still use some, but will have upgrades / better ones around 20+ hours. So yeah, pretty pointless... Nothing in preorder is ment to last forever....

About the uniforms are only worth the effort, even the borg officer will be outdated after a bit. You can NOT upgrade her/customize her!

Thanks for you time to answer these questions:

Question 1,  in Eve, you can enter and leave any ship depending on the role you require and that you have the skills to use the ship, how is this different in STO ?

Question 2, how fast do you rank up and upgrade ships/equipment/officers/etc?

Do we have the ability of raising and lowering shields at will, or are they always active?

yes and no,  you have the ability to devert power to or from sheilds as you need and to reroute to other systems - weapons, engines, aux.  at other times like when engaging full impulse or cloaking they will lower automatically.
