Hopefully they make looking up captains easier. A nice search tool would be a good start, instead of needing to punch the name into the address bar at the top.

Doesn't look like a condemnation of using it to search out Captains and their gear and BOff setups to me.

Is there a reason why the portraits of my characters and bridge officers don't use the same ones as they do in-game? They just look very weird for some reason...a lot more shadows and wrinkles then I had intended for my characters to have. I suppose the portraits are the same as the ones from the old Captain's bio system, but they're very unappealing in this format. It would be great if portraits could be upgraded.
Loving the STO Gateway concept and the potential it could bring to the game; making our characters look nice would be the icing on the cake.
Having it default to allowing others to view ANYTHING about my character or ship I don't SPECIFICALLY authorize I consider an invasion of my personal privacy. Yes, some may say what do you have to hide if you are doing nothing wrong? This is how liberty is dying. I will defer to a quote from Capt. Picard noted in my sig:
"When diplomacy fails, there's only one alternative: violence. Force must be applied without apology. It's the Starfleet way." Capt. Kathryn Janeway - Living Witness [4.23]
What possible privacy interest could you have in in-game information like the layout of your ship? What could anyone possibly do with it to harm you?
Maybe some people are just very self concious about ship layout for some weird reason. looks great so far. portraits do kinda look odd. Doff system would be cool, though I think 90% of the posts so far also mention that.
