i remember my first day in STO.

i'd downloaded the client a few days before, once my email came through letting me know i could. I waited for the time when the servers would open up for play.. and what did i spend most of my first playsession doing?

staring at a loading screen of a one-eyed klingon....


Closed beta's epic klingon load-screen-of-death, which would eat up at least 1/4th of the 2 hour playslots every time.

The game has come a HELL of a long way in terms of cosmetic features and touches, I also remember there being animated load screens (quite different to the ones we have now) for a while, and voice options for Boffs too.. (i wonder if those files are still in the client?)

Everyone wants that little something which to them is "trek", the team can only do so much at a time.. the whole "ESD loading=docking sequence" thing has been requested repeatedly since they put in the classic ESD last year.. i'm sure once they work out how to do it without screwing everything else up, and have time to work on it they'll get round to putting it in game.
