Below the break is a new developer video for Star Trek Online where members of Cryptic discuss ship-to-ship combat.

Apparently, players can use phasers to weaken certain areas of an enemy spacecraft, which wears down the shields so you can use photon torpedoes to finish ’em off.

Just like Kirk.

Game’s out in February 2010.
