Flying bits would be glorious. I love flying bitzorz!!

I like being able to quickly glance at my BO's status to see what, if any, injuries they have sustained by the color coding.

As for injury textures or any other visible injury graphics- no. It's not necessary and it would force a rating change on the game. It isn't necessary for STO's fun factor and I like that I can play STO around my five year old with no worries on graphic content. I even let her run around ESD sometimes (a warning to all those who are in there with her, lol).
Right so a severe injury for a Vulcan would show up green, blue for Andorian and so on.

As to the original thread subject: I ... really don't think that is necessary. Even if it would just take a minute or so to implement. I mean, we're talking about interface here. That's like creating medikits with a green cross instead of a red one because "duh, this one is for Vulcans".
I wish he had medkits. It's stupid to have to go back to Sol to heal. And you should be able to heal up in your ship's sickbay, I mean c'mon, watch a DVD or two STO!!!!
