Interiors
 
I don't know about the rest of you... but I would certainly like to see a great deal of expansion for the interiors of starships. It seems that a lot more could be done to incorporate it into gameplay and make it more of the home-away-from-home kind of environment. Thoughts anyone?

I agree, possibly an optional tactical / order based system for flying the ship from on the bridge, then switch to tactical view for fighting.

Other ideas:
Crew training done on board and mini missions for on board crisis's?

Placing our officers' butts in which seats, doing what.

"Officer of the Watch"-type missions where I have to complete one menial task from one of 7 departments, and get a small reward. Engineering gives me Components, Operations nets me Energy Credits, Science rewards Particle Traces, Medical gets me a Regenerator, Tactical awards Prisoners, Security gives me Contraband, and Civilian grants me Diplomatic Immunity.

According to the devs, we need some tech from Neverwinter to produce customized interiors.

I'd like to see a lot done with the interiors of the ships :P From what I can tell only the bridge is different in each type the rest of the ships remains unchanged regardless of the ship you are flying. I truly don't understand how every single ship has the exact same engine room and hall ways and the lounge :P (I could be wrong in this I've only flown fed ships)

And hell even to be able to sit down in the chairs would be an improvement (One i don't understand why they haven't stuck in anyway seeing as they have interactive benches on Bajor)

But I'd have to agree with the above suggestions too, allowing you to do more regarding your crew while you are on your ship.

I would like to see more done with the starship interiors too. :)

I can't see how they can add gameplay there, as the tech would require to know what specific interior you have on your ship.

However, it would be nice if they made interiors maps, so you can:
- Choose your bridge
- Choose your engineering deck
- Choose your crew deck


More choices on shelves to include purchasable items found only in particular locations, or obtainable from certain missions.

A similar system when you walk up to plants, where from a drop down menu you can choose what type of plant or ornament you want. Also, for pictures on walls, and even the ability to link to your screenshots so you can put your own image on there.

A similar system could be employed on the bridge and main engineering on the master systems display where you choose your ship type from a drop down, that way you can have one bridge or engineering map for multiple starships. :P

Man, 'officer of the watch' is already freaking absurd when it's some starbase watch lieutenant ordering my level 50 VA to scour the station for some cadet's missing PADD (where's my option for telling this guy to order the cadet to bloody well find it himself), an officer of the watch on your own bleeding ship would just about do my head in. :)

+1 Wholeheartedly.

when choosing a new bridge, there is a tab called Layout, i think...it has Small (for escorts), Medium (small crusiers and science ships), and Large (for the large Cruisers and the Caitian Atrox Carrier, at least that's what i use)

Hopefully they will get the tech they need to allow us to make custom interiors.
