Can We Burn The Captain's Table?

Let me add to my last post:
Actually, I find the very concept of the Captain's Table to be ridiculous. I'm actually in agreement to the opening poster in just getting rid of it. I don't want to see it become more important than already important locales like Deep Space Nine and Earth Space Dock and many of the above suggestions in this thread would imply that.
In many ways, I feel that the very concept and purpose of a locale like the Captain's table has been hijacked - better - by Drozana station.
Heck, come to think of it, one thing I'd actually like to see in the game is more importance given to secondary starbases like Starbase 114 (Celes system), Starbase 24 (so we can give a damn about defending it) and Starbase Sierra-39. I also think the default Transwarp power should lead us to the nearest starbase and not Earth Space Dock - that way, while we're operating in a certain region of space the nearest starbase becomes our most important Port o' Call rather than always returning to ESD
(i.e.: While doing missions in the Regulus sector, Starbase 114 in the Celes sector would be able to functionally support the player)and the Transwarp power would lead there by default).
While I'm on a roll, one placeable that would be nice is a Transwarp gate in the locales where player ships can transwarp to. For example, player ships arriving to Sol via transwarp wouldn't arrive at the default location, but rather at a Transwarp Gate placeable much like the one shown in Battle Group Omega.
