I'm assuming this is the right section to post this.
I was thinking that the beginning of the game seems very narrow in customization compared to the other aspects of this game. Their isnt much choice after creating your character.
The main place I see this is with our starting ship. I was thinking in the future it might be better if you get diffrent starting ships depending on your class. Engineers would still start with the Centaur, Science officers would start with a Light Science type and Tactical officers would start with a Light Escort.
This would let people get into their class roles earlier, and give some diversity and more of a reason to roll multiple characters because their beginning experience wont be the same as their last toon.
