One last suggestion for Risa...
 
I know we can't keep the "Flying High" event going after the Summer Event is over, but if we're keeping the flight-enabled map would it be possible to leave a couple of holographic courses going permanently? Just for fun?

That would be cool, they could just reward with Skill or Exp points. I'm all for it, everything is in place for it to happen already.

I'm not even asking for that.

I'm asking for a cosmetic, always-visible holo-track that floaters could have fun flying through. Probably somewhere at the back of the island where it won't be an eyesore, nowhere near the resort area.

Ok, So you are willing to forgo any rewards, just to have a spot to use the jetpack. I have to admit, it is fun and I will miss it if it all goes away till next year. However, being rewarded AND having fun at the same time is the best. :)

There are a couple near the arches that are perfect, but if it's removed completely, I suspect it will give rise to a new sport: River runners! There might even be player made race events to follow the river one end to the other for fun. I can easily see that happening. Follow the river!

I would prefer it to be invisible until its being used. Talk to an NPC and he turns on the track then gives the go order to race either against a lock or other players would be fun.

I personally would love to have such beautiful areas available year round. It's like the planet itself is 'alive' with star trek. (ex. what's more fun to go to, andoria as it is, or andoria with all the commotion of a winter fest)

Honestly I think this would be the easiest implementation for this, since it only allows the race courses to appear when you want them to, and the "Flying High" mission structure already exists. All that has to be done really is to switch out the pearl rewards for a pittance of skill points and expertise. I don't imagine it would be a lot of exp, but that's alright. I see this working somewhat like the "Surly Secrets" mission you get from an old Klingon dude in the bar on Qo'noS, which only exists to provide some lighthearted enjoyment w/some exp. Some multiplayer course would be nice as well if the devs are up to it.
