Today I ran one of the non-combat missions, and I was struck at the irony of my pint-sized Vulcan female tactical officer toting around her 4-1/2 foot long cannon like the Marine gal in "Aliens." I'm sure the shrubberies were impressed. Granted, if it's a diplomatic mission it may help make an impression if the person you're talking to is staring down four barrels of smoking instant death. But it's not exactly a Star Trek sorta image.

A few of us were talking about this in Fleet channel today, and one excellent suggestion came up: Have the BOs beam down with weapons holstered. If you click any of the "combat" icons (My Target, Attack Mode, whatever) let them pull them out. Or if they're set to "standby" have the weapons pop out when they try to initiate an attack.

For a mission without any military targets whatsoever, having them tote around Massive Cannons of Death seems not only awkward but very un-Trek-like.

I like this idea, your BO's take their ques from their boss!

I could live with this. Even if somebody created a "DOOOOOM" post because they clicked the holster button, couldn't figure out how to fix it, and got a team wipe. Laugh now, but you KNOW it would happen.

I like this idea too. I also would like the ability to "cloak" my armour. Yes I want the benefits of wearing it... but I happen to like my tailoring too, and would like to wander around not constantly looking like a shock trooper.

You can do this already. Right click on the armor item in the character view and select "hide under costume" or something like that

That would work great. Just like already they crouch when I do. It would be nice to have the holster action tied together as well.

That's really useful... thanks! I thought there should be something, after all you can hide helmets and cloaks in general for other mmorpgs.
