That way each player customize their personal quarters and have it saved to their STO account than putting the burden on one single player's account?
I'm not exactly following the reasoning behind that.

By "add[ing] a fourth deck", it seems you assuming we're using the current in-game Bridge/Crew/Engineering setup, when in fact the proposal does away with this in favour of canon deck/room layouts.

I also don't see why I should find my personal quarters aboard someone else's starship (same goes for other players).

I'll go for the one-off Zen or Dilithium unlock as well.

The maximum number of crew quarters unlocked is determined by the number of commissioned BOffs a player has - I say maximum as it'd also be nice to have options to have up to two BOffs share a room (if, for instance, they are couples).

In terms of the overall release schedule, I'd probably put BOff quarters at the very last stage, since they serve a primarily decorative function.

Let me gather my thoughts for a bit, and I'll add something to the document this weekend.

Game features I'd like to see improved / expanded: Better Ship Interiors // BOff Costume Slots
