With only one snapshot of the UI to look at it already looks great. I was always a bit put off by how shiney and 'effect' based all the buttons, bars, mouse-over effects were and I just love the return to the flat style.

Also one of the primary barriers to me playing the klingon faction was the red UI giving me a headache after playing for 30mins. I can finally dive into those great looking raptors.

I am very much looking forward to seeing the rest of the interface but GJ so far and thankyou for developing something that is often overlooked.

This. Pretty much this.

I'm almost more excited about the UI changes and the ability to customize the color palette. (Not that a Romulan Faction is not awesome).

Indeed. Thread title purely for impact, Romulans are definitely still awesome.

It's simpler, cleaner, in good Trek fashion. Should add a bit more of an authentic feel when playing.

Is it a complete overhaul? As I understand it, the original UI 'engine' (?) was poor in terms of performance. As a look, it looks great. Much easier on the eyes.

Have not seen any other information yet. Looks like a re-skin, don't know if there are any changes going on underneath.

You mean skills will now activate the first time you click them? That would be awesome.

Agreed. The new UI looks absolutely gorgeous, and the fact that it's customizable is awesome, but I do hope we see an equally gorgeous performance upgrade.

Totally agree, it is probably the part the teaser that has excited me the most. I really like the subtle difference between them as well - Federation is rounded, Klingon is hard edges, Romulan is.. zig-zaggy.

Overall though, the new UI just 'feels' nicer/smoother. Big props.
