I still don't know what it is, I make a point to avoid memes or 'flavour of the month' YT videos.

Just like swag or yolo - who the hell comes up with this dumb crap!?

Anyway, it could be in the game, or it couldn't. To be honest I couldn't care less either way.

No thank you.
Air Guitar is already stupid enough.
Not able to support this idea.

What would i think ?
I would think ~By all the Gods in the Universe NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ! ~

Being somewhat less hyperbolic and silly.
I would think that (1) I would like to see my mmo avoid that You Tube , Silly flavor of the month thing.
and (2) 2409 , why in the heck would the Gangam style survive until 2409?
Air Guitar, I can almost kind of see, but Gangam style.
No freaking way.

Only sollvax could come up with such a monstrously bad idea. But then he's never been known for saying anything worth considering.

my initial reaction was 'oh god no'.

But, getting 70 people in a zone all doing the emote together, then having someone demo record it and add music would be pretty fun to see.

Personally i have nothing against that particular dance, so why not.
On a related issue: the whole tray bar should get a little attention, the constant shifts of buttons, etc + the way emotes are accessed in this game need improvements.

my idea: the ability window should have another folder with a list of emotes, that can be draged into the tray bar like abilitys can be now. There should also be a seperate folder for "ITEMS" (consumables), captain abilitys, tactical abilitys, sci abilitys and engineer abilitys.
I would love to have them more structured, and not in a scrolling list without color indication or some other method to highlight certain abilitys.
The color coding would already be great that some users custom made already.

so emotes accessable as buttons like abilitys and a more structured window for them.

Is this a troll attempt?

I can't work out if its a serious suggestion or troll thread.

If its the former then id say no. I typically hate the cheesey, overrated crap that we get in todays day and age and it couldn't be any further from Trek than adding lightsabers (that's not a damn suggestion!).

This game has already veered too far away from what its title suggests it is. So on that base ill say no for me. Sorry but if you want to dance around like pre-teen girls then do it outside of the game.
