Treat the Separated Section like a Bridge Officer on an away team. I suspect that is the case currently, as looking at the combat logs, my saucer is referred to as "officer".

At least allow a BO to be assigned to an SS. Maybe having the Shuttle Station officer serving that function. That would allow some level of customization, with their varying skills/abilities.

Still... the ability to command the SS... that is wanted most. Like, being able to tell an SS to stop shooting the nanite generator in an elite STF, without having to reattach it for 3 minutes.

Yes, I would like to see the Galaxy have saucer commands too.

If memory serves, I believe it should also have a rear torpedo launcher if you go by the official Enterprise-D deck plans.

What if you have more than one shuttle? Or for that matter, more than one automated ship component like the MVAM?

I think you're on the right track though. Maybe assign an additional BOFF(one that isn't un use by the ship you're flying) to a special 'saucer section' station, or each of the various vectors, Aquariuses, and chevron sections of other ships.

I had considered adding that to my post. And possibly extending it to assigning BOs to Hanger Pets as well. But... that would need some UI work, to fit the additional station slots. The Shuttle station is already there, just waiting to be multipurposed.

And I didn't want to stray too far from the OP, which is to get some command & control of the separated sections.

It should depend on the vehicle... The Aquarius, NP MVAE vectors, consumable pets, and any other legitimate secondary vessels should have full carrier commands, but saucer sep pets should only have a Stay command and a Support one.
These are the unoriginal voyages of the starship Aether. Its continuing mission: to explore boring new worlds, seek out Dilithium and Reputation, to boldly go where everyone has gone before.

I like this idea, it would add a sense of realism (yes i knowStar Trek is fictional) which is currently lacking.

Bran you reading this?

Like the MVAN, I think a choice on which section you wish to fly needs to be added. Give the Saucer Section a special ability like Antimatter Spread if you fly it and maybe a Torp Spread 3 for the Stardrive. I would also like to see the MVAM have a little more diversity added to the different sections.

I'll settle for not coming to a complete stop with MVAE separation.

Think this would be a good feature, please discuss
Yes! Yes! OH GOD YES!

I would love to have the ability to command my saucer and other pets that i have deployed!

Also, what about having the extra ship you used to command help you in battle, you warp in and all the extra ships (some have more then 2) would be there as well, ive been asking for this from day 1

Not sure since what age the thread is considered necroed, but let me add to this as well. Following comment is mainly for aquarius pet, but it could mostly apply to separated parts of different separation ships as well.

I flew fed and kdf carriers and fairly quickly got used to "new" interface that shows status of the pets and allows for control of the pets. I never got separating ship or anything similar.

Until recently I got Tac Odyssey. I was shocked to learn that Aquarius does not behave like my regular carrier pets. Lack of commands is stunning. But lack of pet health overview is deal-breaker. I planned to support the squishy pet with HE and TSS only to find out that this can't be done because I do not even know how healthy the pet is and only way to find out is to search for it in space and click on it - undoable in heat of battle.

This really needs to be fixed. Plus if you dock it, then the cooldown should be proportional to the damage, i.e. you dock 100% healthy pet or ship part = there's no cooldown to re-launch it.

Though ultimately the solution for Aquarius pet (and KDF equivalent) lays in implementation of special Aquarius hangar that would provide hangar controls to the Aquarius and might even allow upgrade to ultra-rare Aquarius pet. Of course Odyssey hangar slot would be locked to this special hangar and would not allow for just any pet to be slotted in. I don't see why this limited hangar for Fed and Kdf flagships wouldn't be possible when Scimitar has universal hangar.
