I would also *LOVE* to hear more officer "chatter", besides the automated computer voice about shields failing and hull percentages... how dull! I want to hear my tactical officer say, "Our shields are failing, Captain!" or my chief engineer shout, "She cannot take it much longer, Captain!" when my hull is critical. Random voice bits about disruptor breaches or sealing off decks, etc.. would be great.
There could be an option to turn this thing off, too -- or perhaps a "slider" where you can scale back the amount you hear, but not tune it out completely (unless you've pulled the slider to 0%)?
Random brain storming. Would go a long way to adding the Star Trek touch.
the only problem i can see with "chatter" like that is the game is too fast paced, you can go from 100-0 hull in a matter of seconds or vice versa. so it would be weird having back round chatter saying things that dont match what happens. i've already had issues with the "-side- shield is down" when its actually still up.
