Your priority for new UGC features
The Closed-Beta tester probably can form a better opinion on this, but they can't share with us. ;)

So, what features for UGC would you prioritize? What do you really need to make the type of UGC content you want?

Here is my list of features in rank of priority. There are certainly more then one can think off, but I think these are the top 3 for me.

1.) Ability to create UGC PvP Arena maps.
This isn't really a big feature, in theory. At least the map itself shouldn't be so hard to create (a good map certainly would), but from the UI perspective, there needs to be a way for PvP players to enable a custom map for PvP (be it via a Queue or Challenge).

2.) Dialogue and storyline branches.
Just to get off of the straightforward railroad. There needs to be a way to create puzzles and mysteries and decisions that affect the events and the outcome of the mission.
This seems to be one of the must crucial features to allow players to create compelling PvE missions.

3.) Ability to create PvP Capture & Hold and War Zone maps.
This seems far more complex then an Arena map - you need to be able to do "missions" scripting in a War Zone,and the Capture & Hold logic needs its own logic, too.
The ability to add this "simple" PvP content should already help the PvP community a lot to do something "fresh".

1. Branching dialogue.

2. Cutscenes.

3. NPC dialogue - for example, "overhearing" an exchange between my lower decks crew over a card game in the lounge.

4. Ability to customize at least the configuration of interior sets - For example, the ability to have a holodeck room, an armory, stellar cartography.

For me the number one priority is branching dialog/missions that enable the mission to change based on the players' actions.

I'm with this one, especially for diplomacy missions that can go wrong

I don't think any PvP maps will be possible, since those aren't really 'missions'. Also, people were talking about setting up social type areas, but those aren't missions either.

1. Fully customizable exterior (space and ground) and interior (ships and buildings) environments and a vast library of objects to make it happen. This would include all of the lighting, wheather and other effects to bring it all to life!

2. Branching dialogue trees

3. Cutscenes
