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.
What, all the various trays showing your stats don't tell you it's a game?

Expecting immersion from an MMO with UI covering a quarter/half the screen seems to be expecting too much, imo.

And the animation isn't THAT bad, seriously. I find it rather cute, the few times I notice it (I barely register it really)

Been playing STO since Open Beta, and have never regarded anything as worse than 'meh'.

Hate it.

First I was like : " WTF!! WHAT'S OFFLNE?! OMG WHAT?!!! "
Then I was like :
Then I was like : This isn't gonna go away....

It's annoying, be better if it just said " Out Of Order " or " Ya stuffed. "
Then I'd pay attention to it.

I really like the fx but I dislike that they are showing offline when systems aren't, and when your systems do go offline you are dead in the water with no sign.

I'd like the option to turn the displays off, honestly. Didn't the devs figure that there are some folks who don't like that sort of thing when they had the mess with the shield rings?

Hmm. Can't help but feel people are over-reacting just a little.

I've seen them, tiny words that flash for a few seconds then disappear. Hardly a game breaker.

I will get roasted for this I expect, but I'm also starting to think people are knit-picking every little fault they can find for the sake of complaining about it.

If you say nothing it never gets fixed and sometimes even then it never gets fixed.

I thought it was kinda funny myself, the first time I saw it was in a borg invasion and it popped up over the command ship when I used target shields. I thought it was an error message at first about something that got broken with the patch, then realized what it was for and laughed.

I have no problem with this, although I wish there was a function to turn off ability effects, similar to how we can turn off shield rings.
