Viewscreens on Bridge
 
Just a suggestion more than anything - the viewscreens on the bridge look awful at the minute with basically a flat black starry canvas - any chance of maybe replacing it with a outside view of space, like when looking out a window?

It's defintiely the weak point of my bridge atm

sad isn't it? even Star Trek Bridge Commander gives you a active View Screen where you can acutally see what is going on outside, even if you're in a battle...

well i guess we'll just have to wait to see :rolleyes:

Yeah but Armada didn't have live-action viewscreens... neither did SFC, or ST: Borg, or Starfleet Academy, or Elite Force, or Judgement Rites, or New Worlds, or Away Team, or The Fallen, or Dominion Wars or mostly all other Star Trek games.

True, but how hard couple it me to have the viewscreen show SB1 when in the Sol system. I can go to my bridge while in the B-Tran Cluster and see SB1 on my viewscreen. I go to the bridge in Sol and see K-7. Next time I go to my bridge in Sol I see deep space. May the STO team could come up with a static image (like those games) and actually have it be pertinent to the area. Just a thought.

Maybe because Bridge Commander is an entirely different game from the ground up?

Plus, every seasoned Bridge Commander pilot knows that bridge view is worthless for actually fighting a serious battle in.
Which is most likely why they never bothered with one in STO. :p

The viewscreen is like a TV screen, not a window. Thats how it is supposed to be.
