If you've been aching for more information on Star Trek Online, then mpogd.com has what you're looking for! They recently sat down with the game's Executive Producer - Daron Stinnett - at the Austin Game Developer's Conference to discuss Perpetual's sci-fi MMORPG.
There were a wide range of topics covered, including the class system, ships players can expect to own and a lot more.
Star Trek Online will have classes similar to existing MMOGs, although they are called "professions". I asked if they will be tightly focused and defined, or if they'll have overlapping skills, allowing development of the quintessential "mage-tank". Stinson responded, "We are going to make pretty well-defined categories for the professions." They will fall into the main categories such as science, tactical, engineering, security, and then branch out from there into more classes, and more options for customization.
