What specific usb gaming pads have you tried? I would really be interested in a LCARs formatted second touch screen for control only. That would leave the main screen for tactical. I think this would be a new direction for the game, and more full immersion than ever before.
You would truly be in command of a Star Trek vessel. STNG\Voyager style interface. If they took it to full development, the second LCARs monitor inputs would be multi level programmable and change with the ongoing tactical scenario. Ground, Space, Science, console use at Starbase, etc.
Die hard gamers are hung on tactile buttons because they are using muscle memory only. And they are using advanced key bindings to do more than one thing at a time. A touch only LCARs interface would add a level of difficulty and excitement not found using a conventional keyboard.
Since Touch seems to be the natural evolution for computers today, why not be in front of the curve, instead of playing catch up? my opinion.
