This I don't understand, John Eaves helped design several really cool starships for STO. Why throw them away?

Even though many of us saw what you mean, but perhaps it would be nice to have a Bridge view sometimes. For instance, navigating through the Planetary Rings and Asteroid Belts would be much easier. (Trust me!) And for the dialogue / storyline communication boxes from NPCs, some people might like to see it "on screen" and not as an annoying floating window.

BTW, I don't think you really need to snazzy up a Bridge-view and seeing moving characters. People would settle for simplicity like seeing the OPS and CONN Consoles with UI info than seeing moving characters, well until you get ship's interiors completed.
