Here are my suggestions for a more Trek like look and feel:
- As a Fed Officer: Why not stunning the bad guys first, marking them with a kind of transporter-focus-gizmo, beam them to the brig and get extra experience points, or accolades, or all of their stuff for catching them alive.
- Same with the ships: I don't expect all of the aliens thinking that its always a good day to die. Some of them might be very faint hearted. Why not letting them give up (like some high level Klingon's do (!!!)).
- How about implementing a boarding option after the ship is given up - so its yours after you fought to the bridge? (Maybe with a time limit due to a self destruction countdown or warp core breach.)
- The winner than could sell the ships, fly them by himself or even build up a fleet.
IMHO this should not be a problem since most of these things already are put into effect in certain missions.
- I really enjoyed all of the Season 1.2 changes! With only one exception: I don't want any accolades for "kills". I don't even want to be called a (virtual) killer". Please give me the opportunity to reject these.
i like the idea,of using the transporters,as instant 'your in the brig now,matey' buttons.as a fed officer,one of our skills should be something that makes an enemy give up.I too don't like all this 'we kill all u noobs' mentality of the current Feds.I'll be trying the diplomatic corps asap.the ships giving up idea is cool too,maybe if they give up,after a certain amount of damage,but you don't get so much xp?good way of getting a mission done quickly.
doubts about the boarding ships,and taking them as yr own,to do with as you please.the federation,frowns apon that kind of thing,I think.maybe if there was a neutral faction,like marquis,then maybe yeah.
