I (and many others) would love to see shuttle missions, too. I think dstahl has said they want to make them, but I'm not too sure if they're on the 'immediate future' radar. Probably something they'll add in either Season 4 (which is supposedly around April of next year) or later.
Just don't let Chakotay fly one of them. (You think Troi piloting the Enterprise was bad...)
I have to say, I'm glad it's not just me and its great to hear that its on the agenda, maybe not a pressing matter, but at least being considered. See that's why I love STO, it gives the fans what they want!
Also, I was thinking about worlds from the Star Trek timeline that would be fun to revisit.....how about the Center of the Galaxy from the final frontier....it would be fun to meet the god of Shakari (sp)
