I had an interesting idea,
Recently I play an old game Star Trek Bridge Commander. It was a really fun user interface game where you were literally commanding the ship from the captain's chair on the bridge. You could control it from the outside, but it was a lot more fun to command from the bridge. I was wondering what you guys felt if there was a setting in the game that would allow the player to command the ship with battles and travelling through space from the bridge and have a menu to control the attacks and abilities. I find that it would be extremely cool to do that because that's what I originally envisioned when I started playing the game from its inception. It would also make the game a lot more interesting. Maybe we could even walk around the ship as a battle was happening.

I don't know about you guys, but I REALLY like the idea of commanding from the bridge.

Thank-you,
Andrew Costa

While it would be fun to do it that way, you would loose the ability to better track the events going on around you. I like to know what targets to my flanks and aft are doing (such as powering up skills etc). You wouldnt get that with a "radar bilp".

The idea's been clamored for practically since the beta, and the answer from Cryptic has not changed...

the answer that has been given repeatedly by the devs is that it is currently impossible without a total redesign of the game engine, because the bridge is a completely different zone from the normal space zones, they can't track your character in two zones at once.
