Like they already do for social maps, Cryptic could provide us with a list of entities that exist on ship's interior maps. Then we'd be able to attach triggers and dialogs to these entities. It's a lot of work for Cryptic to enter/modify their data and the Foundry, but it's doable.
What I fear would be a lot more problematic, perhaps so much so as to deter Cryptic from even contemplating the feature, is allowing us to add entities to a ship's interior map that weren't there before.
I was re-thinking my original assumptions earlier today, and have come to the conclusion that this issue is too complex for a simple place holder concept because depending on the injected entity and the place holder 3D position in the individual ship's interior, things could look pretty funny, and I don't mean funny HA HA.
Therefore, I guess baby-steps are in order, first allow us to attach triggers/events to pre-existing consoles etc, and then we'll take it from there.
