I'm pretty sure they meant space combat ala bridge commander. This has been requested since pre-beta. Honestly I was surprised to see it in the survey, Cryptic said (a long time ago) that they tried it and didn't like the result. I'm really curious to see the results of this poll.
well, Delazure, you may be right. but there have also been many voices (since closed beta at least) which asked for missions INSIDE your very own ship. as it stands now, only the bridge is available, and almost every mission contains combat. so this could - at least IMHO - very well be understood as: "Do you want to have missions on your bridge/ship"?
perhaps this is too much wishful thinking - but I would really love to see that.
remember: many, many episodes (especially TNG) are focused on stories that happen mostly or purely on the ship.
I interpreted it to mean "Bridge View" since it was so heavily requested.
I figured if they meant "in your ship" they wouldn't just call it Bridge combat, but rather, Interior combat (since I'd very much assume you may have to fight in Engineering, or even the mess hall in such situations).
well, Delazure, you may be right. but there have also been many voices (since closed beta at least) which asked for missions INSIDE your very own ship.
Cryptic said that they will add ship interiors and create missions inside the ship : this was planned even before they decided to add the bridge at launch. I hope they don't need a poll to be sure the players want it. As you said, shipisodes are iconic, we need them.
