I think it would be neat to offer a bank, an Exchange and mail terminal, a tailor, a ship tailor - basically make it a one-stop shop for customizations. No actual vendors.

I know that the Table is right off of ESD and that ESD has most / all of these things, but it'd give people a reason to hang around there.

Maybe even include crafting terminals, to make it even more convenient. It's not game-breaking for those who don't have it, but you'd definitely notice when you do.

I'd like to see the entrance moved. Either (a) put an Aenigma Nebula at Sol, SB39, K7, DS9, Ganalda, etc., (b) move the Aenigma to Sector Space, or perhaps best of all, (c) put it in the drop-down menu next to "Visit the Bridge." I can guarantee you that making it instantly accessible from any non-combat map would make it very desirable...though perhaps even at the expense of the other, tougher to reach social zones.

Right now though, it's simply too much effort to zone into Sol System, then turn my ship around to access the Nebula when I could just punch Full Impulse and dock at ESD instead.

Here's a short list of what should be there. (Some may already exist, but... )
  1. Uniform Tailor
  2. Ship Changer
  3. Ship Designer
  4. Emblem Merchant
  5. Respec Merchant
  6. Exploration Token Merchants
  7. Dabo Table
  8. PvP Token Merchants
  9. Exchange
  10. Fleet Bank
  11. Mail
  12. Library Computer (Ship Spec's and such)

That's all I can think of at the moment, but that would be a great start. I'd still like to have a Transwarp directly there though.

Well, not so much what's on the station, but how to get to it....

http://forums.startrekonline.com/sho...d.php?t=187050

Basically:

1) A Trans-Warp to it.

2) As an option from Sol in sector space. (So you don't have to go to Sol -> Fly -> Portal -> Fly -> Captain's Table)

There are other ideas in that thread worth looking into.

Juice bar. Cappucino machine. Love those things. Of course, caffeine makes bajorans sneeze, but that can't be helped.

I don't see the captain's table as a finished product but rather an effort on Cryptic's part to throw a stake in the ground and say 'we want a special place for our regular customers and lifetimers'.

In all seirousness, maybe building on the "soft canon" from the captain's table series of books would be nice. Maybe I can talk to a 22nd century klingon captain or a 29th century starfleet officer. What would we say to each other?

If I remember my soft canon (it's been years since I read the books) the captain's table was a magical bar that existed simultaneously in multiple time periods on earth and on several worlds. Famous captains would stumble in there and discover the place.

1.) Not just ANY Dabo table. Put in a High Roller one. 1K Energy bet or some other higher number then 100 Energy.

2.) Access to the captains table for anyone who has achieved all accolades from playing Dabo. Think VIP rooms at clubs or Casinos.

3.) Unique decorative items that can be bought only from the Captains Table shop.

4.) A BO trainer would be very helpful.

5.) Unique beverages from Cap that provide a cosmetic effect on your toon.(Burps, Hiccups, staggering, glowing)

In short make it things that are not critical to gameplay but that would make the casual player ask how you got that or are doing that.

I love the Cpatains Table, It was SO cool when it first opened. But there is really no reason to go there right now or hang out there.

Rather than seeing stuff go in there I can just do at DS9 like dabo tables and ship tailors, I'd like to have unique stuff to do there. How about making Cap a special mission giver and put in some small missions like "Find me some Tranya and bring it back here for 40 DXP" or something?

That way, it would give us something to DO and a reason to go there multiple times.

Oh, and I'd also like the Orion concierge chick at the front desk to give random hints about future stuff coming to the game like she does with the Breen message from the future. It would be a nice perk for long time players to get hints about what's coming up in development, even if it's just a name drop like she does with the Breen. That's the kind of quirky thing Captain's Table needs.
