Being able to dress our ships up with battle scars would be a nice touch.
I'd also quite like an 'aged' hull material to go with some of the older ships; y'know, hull plating that doesn't quite match because 'they just don't make it like that any more', sooty streaks around engines and plasma vents, scorch marks around weapons, and maybe the occasional rusty stain here and there, as though something had leaked through the seams.
While I accept the need to keep us looking like a fleet, and not a bunch of personalized hot rods, there should still be a few ways to add 'character' to our ships IHMO.
Exploration suggestions thread - give it a read
BTW, you'd pronounce it 'Cap'n Manks'
