while it is a nice idea to have more variety in PvP game modes, i feel that capture the flag will be a little too generic, and doesn't necessarily add to the situation. now, if it were, say a game mode where instead of capture the flag, you fight over deuterium and taking it back to your nearest starbase, that would play a little more into the trek world and give us a more convincing war. as it is, capture and hold really has no strategic points worth capturing and holding- given everything is either abandoned or destroyed. this type of stuff holds no value in a real war situation. Arena fights are good, its always good to go back to the good old frag deathmatches.
though i would like to see a galaxy retrofit carry a flag. it would bring a literal meaning to the word "flagship"
