I Would love to have a visual pack loss meter for STO, many of us play on poor or slow connections, knowing when these problem occur would be ideal, that way we can distinguish between the game and our environment. Just a little block that shows packet performance, as an option for users like in Call of Duty or most FPS games.
For the preload of the game, how about Sirius Sector and the Klingon Home sector being part of the primary download rather than on demand patching, there should not be a reason to patch files when going to something like earth space dock or Starfleet academy . Those should be part of the base patch level not a per entry patch or on demand patch. \
