I was reminded of the fact that it is such an exotic place to us that instead of liquid water Titan has liquid methane... lakes of it... muddy shores on methane seas... methane mud flats on its flood plains... methane air where methane rain falls from methane clouds...

Thank you two fold. First off for making me laugh, and then making me laugh again when the great discription you gave reminded me of Halo: Cole Protocol when the crazy Russian-lady Spartan used her drop pod like a rocket sled to mush an army of Grunts on a planet with methane lakes, rivers and even waterfall.
It really is too bad we won't see environmental suits in STO, at least not for a long while. I'd love to beam to a planet like that and not have my flesh melt from my bones.
