I wouldn't say the beam in ruins this feature necessarily... this has been the case for NPC spawns from the start, no matter what the reason is for them appearing.

Basically what needs to happen is that EVERYTHING that spawns and despawns in the game should have the option to select how they appear... IE the animation that occurs ONCE when they appear. This is also needed for ships that warp in... if they are friendly or NPC contacts, because it is an "idle" animation, it repeats. What we need is a spawn animation and a despawn animation, with the default set to "appear" or "instant". We could then change it to what is best.

Just my 2 cents
