I was thinking about this earlier, and during a lot of missions there's apparently a bunch of really cool stuff that goes on off-camera involving your own ship or away teams. "Cutting the Cord" is one that immediately springs to mind, in which while you're away your ship is participating in the major, decisive battle.

It would be nice, at least on rerun, to take control of your first officer, or even retain command of your ship and simply send an away team, and experience the "other side" of these missions. That would definitely add replay value to missions that hadn't much before beyond mission rewards.
