All the Stars are Pulsars
 
I turned off whatever setting it was to make the tsunami of balloons in every social zone disappear and now all the stars in the playable systems look like pulsars until I get within about half a light year of them. Kind of a neat effect. May just keep it this way.

I'll try next time I'm in game, but it's a dynamic thing so I don't know if I can catch it in a screen shot. Also, I never figured out how to do screenshots in-game other than copy to clipboard and paste to Microsoft Paint.

Pressing "Prnt Scrn" key on your keyboard saves the screenshot into a Screenshot folder of Star Trek Online. You have to find where your game is installed, there you'll find the screenshots folder.
Screenshots are saved without the UI as a JPG.

Thanks. I was having trouble getting good shots after cropping out the UI.

You can also type /screenshot into your chat bar to do the same thing. It will even bring up a list of screenshot options as well. ;)

Ok, I've got it set up as my signature now. The Acamar System is shown. Note the pulsing (at least in real-time) of the two stars on the left. The picture on the right is up close to the same system and the stars are not pulsing. I have regular settings on my alt's and they don't have the pulsing effect.

I was in the Sirius Sector near Wolf 359 and Andoria and P'Jem were both doing the same thing.
