Star Trek Online players now can build custom ships, thanks to the Architect. The STO Architect is a virtual tool that allow fans to create their favorite starships and share them with others.

The Architect also includes a gallery for fans to view their creations, a mini-game and an Intel® sponsored sweepstakes with prizes that include a replica captain’s chair, Intel® Core™ i7-920 Processors and copies of the Star Trek Online game.

Created and developed by The Game Agency, a New York and Los Angeles based marketing firm, the minigame, Star Trek Online Ship Shaper, challenges players to build Star fleet ships as quickly as possible and top the leaderboard. Once a ship order has come in, the player must grab the correct pieces from the slider and assemble the ship quickly. Points and bonus time are awarded for fulfilling the ship orders correctly. It is a fun and frenzied game that is easy to pick up and play.
