It has been stated that this is impossible due to the game engine's limitations. The thing is, when you are on your bridge in STO you are not actually on YOUR bridge in space, you just run around a pre-defined map, just as you would run around a space station. When you leave the station and are in space, your character (the girl/guy you played on the station) turns into s space ship and "walks" through space as the game is unable to simulate an actual ship transporting sonething through sector space.

This means there is no connection whatsoever between your bridge and the rest of the game. The only reason this would be possible I think are cutscenes which would play (and had to load seperately) every time you approach something.

The sad truth is: The Star Trek game everyone wants is just not Star Trek Online and it will never be
