Great Potential !

Light box is a great idea but would limit you to a static background and so you would need to reprint every time you advanced or changed your abilities. Hmmmm,

Money being no object in the Star Trek Universe, mount one on a big screen LCD TV then flat mount that on a slight angle on a desk top. Using some software that would allow you to change LCARS screens easily and use Photoshop or something similar to Design your LCARS for all the aspects of game play. I would have to hire Michael Okuda* as I am graphically challenged.

Running dual monitors put another LCD TV, say a really BIG one on the wall. Display the game on the wall and the controls on the desktop.

Close to total emersion for Ship play! Not so much for ground play.

Wonder if Cryptic would give us dual monitor support so maps and controls could be moved off the primary display?

*The LCARS graphical user interface was designed by scenic art supervisor Michael Okuda for Next Gen. Michael was suppose to have worked on STO, but when Perpetual Entertainment went belly up so did his work.
