# 1 Ship Interior Expansion Ideas?
08-19-2010, 10:11 PM
A thread to post ideas for expanding on the cool new ship interiors.

I'll start off. Places like the Captain's quarters have pictures on the wall. It looks like they're based off your current ship class (?). It could be cool if it would pull pictures from your screenshots directory if they're there.

Expanding on your pics idea, it would be cool to take a snapshot during a mission and turn it into a picture that can be traded etc. The pics on your wall would be customizable or randomly generated from pictures YOU take, rather than generics.

Also some reward type pics for completing certain missions (such as at the end of Star Trek VI when the whole crew stands at the podium). Only for particularly heroic missions, but it would be kinda cool to be able to look at them.

Other expansion ideas:

Jefferey's tubes
Shuttlebays
Holodecks (even if they are non-functional for now)
Map Room

Also it would be kinda cool to be able to name individual crewmen. Similar to in roller coaster tycoon how you could choose a customer and name them, it would be kinda fun. As long as the names are maintained, you could eventually have the entire crew named so no more "Science Officer" and such.

On a similar note, it would be kinda cool to actually see crew members DOING something. Whether its removing a wall panel to work on the stuff behind them, sitting at a scorched area with some sparks to appear to be repairing damage, etc. Give them some REASON to be randomly traversing the halls.

I was thinking. There is a random name generator that players can use to suggest names... why not use that to create on the spot names for our crew? Just append the name to the end of their normal title. So Tactical Officer becomes Tactical Officer Savik for example.

# 4 Different interiors
08-20-2010, 10:08 PM
I also think there should be some variation in the interiors, even if it's grouped by class. So all cruisers have one set of interiors. Escorts have another. In the case of escorts you could even make them small. I think the claustrophobia would be a nice touch.

I like this idea... because on my escorts I definatly don't want huge mess halls and luxurious quarters. I run a warship, not a pleasure liner!

On another idea, some ships should have certain facilities that others don't.
For example an escort won't have well equipped science labs, but might have better equipped armory or something.
Science ships would be able to do more research etc and have an astrometrics.
Some ships might be large enough for hydroponics, or an arboretum (like in TNG the Enterprize had an arboretum I seem to recall). These would have roles, like the hyrdoponics would help with rare foodstuffs, which a chef coudl do something with.

I'd like to have crewnames I think. But you only have so many officers on a ship, the rest are crewmen aren't they?

I allways thought it would be awesome to be able to upload our own pictures to be put on the wall. My ship is named after the U.S.S. Bataan, an Independence-class aircraft carrier that served in WWII and Korea, of which my great-grandfather was the XO.

I really think it would be cool to have a picture of it in my ready room.

Of course, being able to name crew members (or at least have them use a randomly-generated name,) would also be a cool addition, along with having the option to customize ship interiors down to a realistic size.

I'd love to see a tribble infestation resulting from bringing one on board.

I would like to see the ability to do limited R&D on the ship maybe each class can have access to different type of R&D on their ships with the high end and other only accessable from Memory Alpha.

But would like to see the Shuttlebay with access to a flyable Runabout so you can view the outside of your ship, (maybe asking for too much )
