I have thrown away my personal shields and now ground combat better than space combat

I really enjoyed City on the Edge of Never.
I'm not suggesting everyone play this way. And I'm not suggesting Cryptic change anything except for keeping it up and running and not crashing.
My point has always been that if you wanted to think more (and I agree that this game attracts a more cerebral player than a lot of mmo's because Star Trek has always been a smart person's show) then remove the personal shield. It really doesn't crank up the difficulty that much. The initial change is frustrating because your bridge officers have to unlearn their dependence on the personal shields but once they do, it's about the same level of difficulty just with more strategy.
It is not for everyone but I just wanted to spread the word because it's a whole lot of freaking fun. I kid you not.
I love this game.
