Romulan BOFF Transporter Effects
 
If you have a Klingon or Fed boff in your party, they beam out with their transporter effect, which makes no sense in an immersion perspective. It would be nice if the beam effect was by the faction of the captain instead of the BOFF.

The holo-boff is also red no matter the faction. But I'm okay with that.

Same with Diplomat/Marauding BOFFs.

It is bothersome.

Strangely enough the effects are not tied to faction as my federation boffs will use the green transporter effect with the New Romulus transporters.

Yes, yes.
And why is our diplomat/marauding BOFF starfleet klingon or klingon human officer, why not romulan human or romulan klingon :mad:

I think we can add androids to the list here. :(

Yep it's the only time my betazoid science officer will use the 'correct' transporter effect. So we know it can done it's just a matter of having the right flags :)

Wouldn't be a problem if they made Romulan faction androids *grumble grumble*

Kind of like how my alien romulan factioned character uses an invisible comm badge and beams up green by romulan transporters, while my boff's use their armbands.

Now for my reman he uses nothing, but acts like he's standing at attention than transports up with a green romulan transporter effect while his boff's use their armbands.

Best one of all is when rom/fed aligned character's using romulan ships warp out either green or blue.
