Very cool! However, I'm surprised I haven't seen this question yet - what happens to your ship when you are on an away mission? Does it just orbit the planet, vulnerable to attack, or will it vanish?
I would imagine your ship cannot be attacked as it would ruin an away mission by you having to beam up and defend your ship. While doing an away mission it would probably be a good idea that your ship isn't even detectable to avoid people waiting to destroy you or any thing like that.
