It also feels quite un-Star-Trek like to have to turn around to grab some loot in every second fight... since we beam that stuff in anway, could it please have a more appropriate beaming range (like, 100km or more)?
I agree and also drops shouldn't disappear so fast, if ever. Especially since everything is instanced, its not like its going to clutter anything up. I hate when I die from a ships explosion, it drops something, I re-spawn and finish the battle and that drop is gone. It was probably a battery, but WHAT IF????
