It was supposed to be a social zone for veterans, but players socialize where they want so it's usually empty.

On the plus side if you are a vet that hates certain social party devices, the Captain's table is usually free of those things so you can use the exchange, bank, and email in peace and quiet.

Well it could AT LEAST need a "Transwarp Option" ... maybe with Season 9 because of the :

but wouldn't count on it ... "decisive" probably means "New EV Suit" or something like that

How about putting some kind of "[Iconian] Gateway" there, which lets you speed-travel to other Star-bases, without Transwarp ... (DS9, Drozana etc) .. right now it's just a waste of time to go there, because of the "extra-mile"

-> kind of Lore friendly, too ...

Or, at least some kind of mobile ESD, just like the Azura Personal Comm Code ...

I go there often and look out the window on the station wondering why I've lost control of my life

I used to go there all the time to set up my ships, but they removed the 'ship change' personnel for some unknown reason. I haven't been able to justify going there since - K7 and Ganalda have ALL the same benefits as the Captains Table - AND MORE.

I now just consider it a really disappointing inventory-management option for when ESD/FC chat is getting to me (I'm soft like this). Beyond that, I see no real benefit.

I was STOked (heh) to be able to go there when I first got my life sub, now it's 'just another random map' that I rarely visit.

To be honest, I avoid it now because the removal of the 'ship change' personnel makes me angrier than any video game should - I have this stupid personal rule: 'Games should bring joy, not frustration.'

Perhaps I am too quick to anger, but I fail to see how REMOVING functionality on the Captain's Table map should be considered a viable reward for our support for PWE/Cryptic.

Why would you need to go there to change ships?

You can switch ships from anywhere in the game. You just go to your shuttle bridge and change ships at the shipyard boff.

Don't even have to do that. Called hit u, bring up your ship while in space, nice little tab at the bottom of the ship's picture. Shift to any ship while in space without having to do that.
