Ship Interior Expansion Ideas?
 
A thread to post ideas for expanding on the cool new ship interiors.

I'll start off. Places like the Captain's quarters have pictures on the wall. It looks like they're based off your current ship class (?). It could be cool if it would pull pictures from your screenshots directory if they're there.

Expanding on your pics idea, it would be cool to take a snapshot during a mission and turn it into a picture that can be traded etc. The pics on your wall would be customizable or randomly generated from pictures YOU take, rather than generics.

Also some reward type pics for completing certain missions (such as at the end of Star Trek VI when the whole crew stands at the podium). Only for particularly heroic missions, but it would be kinda cool to be able to look at them.

Other expansion ideas:

Jefferey's tubes
Shuttlebays
Holodecks (even if they are non-functional for now)
Map Room

Also it would be kinda cool to be able to name individual crewmen. Similar to in roller coaster tycoon how you could choose a customer and name them, it would be kinda fun. As long as the names are maintained, you could eventually have the entire crew named so no more "Science Officer" and such.

On a similar note, it would be kinda cool to actually see crew members DOING something. Whether its removing a wall panel to work on the stuff behind them, sitting at a scorched area with some sparks to appear to be repairing damage, etc. Give them some REASON to be randomly traversing the halls.

I'd love to see a tribble infestation resulting from bringing one on board.

I would like to see the ability to do limited R&D on the ship maybe each class can have access to different type of R&D on their ships with the high end and other only accessable from Memory Alpha.

But would like to see the Shuttlebay with access to a flyable Runabout so you can view the outside of your ship, (maybe asking for too much :) )

I was thinking. There is a random name generator that players can use to suggest names... why not use that to create on the spot names for our crew? Just append the name to the end of their normal title. So Tactical Officer becomes Tactical Officer Savik for example.

Different interiors
 
I also think there should be some variation in the interiors, even if it's grouped by class. So all cruisers have one set of interiors. Escorts have another. In the case of escorts you could even make them small. I think the claustrophobia would be a nice touch.

I miss the conference room.... i have a sickbay without a doc or a even an EMHP, but no conference room,...

The whole interior thing is pointless at the time. You can't interact with the crew memebers, you can't use any devices, you can't palce anything in your own quaters.... You can't even order a drink or sit on a chair! As long as there is no any interaction in the interior, I think it's pointless to expand it.

I like this idea... because on my escorts I definatly don't want huge mess halls and luxurious quarters. I run a warship, not a pleasure liner!
