I would like to report a Occupational Health and Safety issue regarding Fleet Starbases...to the Cryptic Art team

In the Ops level of the FED Fleet Starbase, there is a large curved piece of transparent aluminium arching over the doorway to the Officer of the Watch's room. This doubles as a bridge-like wallkway between the bar/lounge and an elevated platform.

However, the outer side of the walkway does not have a side barrier, so people can simply walk off it and fall right back down on to the main floor of the Ops level.

Whilst players don't actually take any damage this way, it just seems comical that, with all the gimmicky SB special projects the devs devise, there isn't a protective barrier along the outside of the walkway over the door to the OotW room.

Thoughts?

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

A friend of mine, who was a concept artist on CoH/V back in the day, and actually left to work on STO at Perpetual gets super angry at the lack of handrails and other common sense safety lackings in future cities etc. displayed in movies, games, tv and anime. We used to watch anime together regularly with a group from Cryptic, and we had to stop watching one series because of the lack of railings.

True Story.

The fed prison is worse. An electric energy bridge with no railings over a giant pit. Federation H&S doesn't exist!

The answer is simple on no hand rails. The execs are worried that everybody would be "leaning" all day long.

Be fair- that's a prison staffed by holograms...

On a more serious note- the section the bridge leads to just screams "featured project" to me.
