Of course. Star Trek holograms are a giant pot of BS, anyways, and the franchise never displayed much consistency when it comes to photonic stuff. So in essence, it doesn't matter how STO deals with it, since the series already messed it up.

It still "feels" wrong, at least to me - and apparently some other players as well. *shrugs* I dunno, I would just prefer something more "classic", I guess. And not basically a copy of Fleet Support, whose only difference is that the trigger condition is balanced by the NPC ship's strength.
