# 1 Why can't we hail other ships?

Another simple Trek device missing in action in this game. The ability to hail a fellow Fed ship or even the enemy ship(s) would be very nice. Even when we "team" up in a instance, we don't really communicate. How many senseless battles could be averted if we merely opened hailing frequencies and talked our way out of a battle?

I thought the chat window was our way to communicate to each other if youíre in a fleet put your setting on fleet chat or zone chat ECT.
Now if you are referring to NPC's well I believe when reach contact with most missions "any kind" the NPC's do contact you for either threats or instructions or both??
Are you talking about just randomly contacting NPC's like Ferengi supply ship or other friendly ships that interact with us while in flight?
I guess finally the only other ship I am sure we do not have contact with is the transport ships
Iím that case then I understand and it would be nice to see where they are going and maybe is they might like an escort

All in all I think you need to define your question al little bit better

I belive that's coming in June with diplomacy. Although even then some ships will just refuse to be hailed.

Zone chat is like the common open channel.. you can speak with everyone in the zone you are in.

Local chat is open channel for everyone in your immediate vecinity.

Fleet chat is open channel for the members of the Fleet you belong to

Team chat is open channel with everyone in your battle group.

Right click, send Private message is your direct secure comms channel.

So Comms is in game.. it is just how you percieve it.

Also NPC's contact you in mission or in sector space.. so that communication is automatic.

Is there anything more specific you are asking about?

Only thing missing is Faction chat for PvP, and that's coming.
