Tholians and Breen both pack subsystem targeting and would be happy to show you.

I'm not complaining about it mind you. Its just odd compared to the smaller visual cues used for most other debuffs. *shrugs*

I had seen it on Tribble. I do not mind it so much. Personally, if they had some sort of visual on your ships readout, that would be super. Other than your shield facings dissappearing, there is nothing there that shows any other subsystem offline.

For me it's not so much the colours, I like that it's an actual word rather than a weird arse symbol that makes me feel I should have learnt Egyptian hieroglyphs just to understand WTF is going on.

I agree that an option would be nice, I'm all for options. However Cryptics record on these things means it'll take a long time if ever. We did EVENTUALLY get the option to turn shield rings off, but we STILL have impulse trails, we STILL have no options on walk/run animations, we STILL have no race/class options for our android Boffs and even less for photonicBoffs. It really seems to come down to someone at Cryptic agreeing with what's being said, if no one there does, good idea or not, it'll stay right where the impulse trails are.

But I want mine to show "OFFLINE LOL" followed by an automatic fireworks discharge !

That'll show them Tholians I means buisness !
STO will be out of Beta in another 2-4 years ???
... you know after another 3 story arc remasters, crafting revamp, skills revamp, PVP upgrade ...
*note : the 2-4 year guesstimate came out of comparing Cryptic's Dev speed and that of a snail . Sadly the snail won .

Oh, its OUR ship thats offline? I thought we were really giving it to that borg dildo in the Red alert. I agree, thats lame. When I take screenshots, I want all those mmo graphics off so it looks like a pure tv/movie battle. Putting giant letters onto ships is lame. That graphic should just be on our dashboard. I have my shield rings turned off in space for a reason. So if you want to tell me my subsystems are offline, make little LCARs (or icons the Sci ships use for subsystems) buttons attached to the ship hull/shield dashboard and when they are working, they are shaded blue like the dashboard is, when they are offline, light them up red individually. Also put these buttons on the enemy ship status on our dashboard.

Once again, attention to details not followed, and I throw Dan dirty look #257 as to why that giant billboard graphic got approved.

The OP is right, whoever thought of this hideous information animation should be shoveling s##t for a living.

A ridiculous and unnecessary animation that completely removes the player from any sense of immersion and enforces the fact that you are looking at a game.

More good work Cryptic.....please allow use to turn it off.

It applies to both your ships and the enemies you are shooting at. If a system goes offline, you get the giant 'Offline' logo flashing up. It looks great when you disable the weapons on the Borg Queen's giant space dildo. The Offline message almost covers the entire end of the Unimatrix ship.
