Getting BOs to holster their weapons
 
So, what does everyone think?

I've has a few peaceful missions now and think the away team look very silly brandishing phasers when their captain is not.

Cryptic: Please consider having the whole away team holster their weapons when the command is given for the player character to do so.

Comments?

AND make them walk when the player character does! I hate it when they run and scramble around behind me... maybe if they walked when the character does, they would get stuck in the geomtry less.

+10 in agreement.

Also, let us select to beam down with weapons holstered, both individually when going to spacedock, and on planet assignments.

Agreed. I take my BO's weapons off on peace missions. Please save my the trouble.

Hear, hear! On all accounts!

Rarely on the shows did anyone beam anywhere with weapons already out, unless they knew for a fact they were going into a hostile situation. And even then a lot of times the weapons were holstered. Heck I remember a lot of the original series shows a lot of the away team didn't seem to have weapons at all!

Holster should be the defaul in all situations. I've not seen where firing from a holstered position is any slower than firing with the weapon already out. I think it's graphical only.

My vote is always holstered, or if not, at least make the entire away team do what I do (holster if I holser, crouch if I crouch, run if I run, and walk if I walk).

I couldn't agree more. I'd love to see this included.

Absolutely. I gave these jokers stances so I'd like to actually see them. So far the only way that works is to make 'em all equip dual pistols or go unarmed entirely. And that...is kinda silly.

It is rather annoying with my slender, pretty (ahem. Shut up, that's what!) klingon (Yeah, yeah. Be quiet.) engineering officer...clad in Original series tight fitting uniform (+skirt)...

...beams down to a space station carrying a huge assault heavy weapon at all times.

It's like..."Yeah, this gun is huge. Yup. Why, wsup? Oh, did you want to talk to me? Well...guess what: This here baby [gun] is not going away, so...Feeling lucky?".

Federation needs five people for an away team; the captain and four other people. We klingons only need the Captain :)

Holstering weapons... pffft!
