Ok I'm going to ask the stupid question....if one started out with just a regular human character, then went lifer(as in, after one had leveled a character all the to 50 and hacked through all the reputation grinds and then went lifer), does this revamp allow me to redo said character into a Liberated Borg?
I like the screenshot of it even better: the crew isn't just standing around you like they do on tribble, but doing stuff. I see they're all showing kit visuals. Was that just a mocked up image, or is that something you're sneaking into LOR?
It appears to just be a mock up using images they already have to illustrate the "movie poster" concept. But I would love to see BOFFs able to equip kits.
Would certainly help, if you could fix the bug on Tribble where it shows your "small craft" on the Character Selection screen, rather than your "active ship".
Needless to say, it looks pretty ridiculous with a full away team, your Captain, and a dinky little shuttle hovering above their heads. Personally, i'd vote for always showing your active starship at Character Selection. I don't need to see my shuttle before starting my gaming session.
Yes, this. I don't want to see my Runabout. Even now, at the current character selection screen on Holodeck, it says my ship is my Runabout and not my Odyssey.
Simple request. Can something please be added in during the character creation where the new captain can select the starting ship!? I don't know how it'll work on the Klingon and Romulan side but the feds have the:
Would be great if we could start our new captains out on the ship you want to (assuming you own the rights fly that ship)
If nothing else, it would at least be nice to customize your beginning Light Cruiser BEFORE beginning the Tutorial.
I really don't think it's the "leveling 1 through 50" bit that puts alot of people off from rerolling new characters. It's the fact that you need to grind through 5 Tiers of Omega, 5 Tiers of New Romulus, and soon 5 Tiers of Nukara, to get fully bumped up in terms of passives, actives and available gear.
Reputation "grind" would be alot smoother for making new characters, if it were Account Based, instead of Character Based.

There needs to be a way to make them more friendly to people who run more than one or two characters even having them faction based would be better than the way it is now.
The way it is now makes sense, in that, it's that particular Captain's Reputation that s/he's earned with that given group. But the thought of grinding through all of that, over and over again with each new character, is quite daunting and probably turns many off to creating multiple characters. I agree that it would be better to have the Reputation System unlock the options within the Faction, at least. That way, at most, you'd only have to grind the Reputation System three times.
I really love the new changes and the text is in pictures instead that makes it easier for me to find what im looking for much faster. I even liked the way my ship shows on the Character Selection Screen.
Not sure If I checked but it be nice to see the ship's gear that changes your apperance like the borg sets appear on the Character Selection.

No more irresponsible than any web browser that saves website passwords. I'd like to have my password remembered, especially because I only play this on one computer.
No less irresponsible, either. I only use such features if they in turn are password-protected and encrypt the stored data with that passphrase. And mostly I don't even use them; I use Lastpass instead.
Only you play on that computer; but you won't be the only one who checks that option off. Others who do so won't be the only one using their computer, and when their roommate/sister/boyfriend/neighbor/fratmate uses their account, they'll be contributing to the length of the support queue.
Further, since that data will not be in any meaningful way protected, it will be accessible to malware. Gold sellers employ programmers to create malware. The support floods when they have a big strike make the above look like small beer.
