What to do with Club 47?

First off it would make sense if they added a vendor you could bye drinks from. I mean it IS a club with a bar.

Secondly, I always assumed you'd use places like that for special events. You could have holidays with the club being dressed up for First Contact Day, Federation Day, Christmas, Diwali ... etc. And Cryptic could add in other events - dress up the place to be used for meeting foreign dignitaries like the Grand Nagus or the First Monarch of Krios ... something like that.

Hopefully when the get round to fixing the layout of ESD they'll put Club 47 overlooking an internal dock, like this: Old STO ESD concept.

Oh really? That's a brilliant idea! Party with loot ... now I'd luv to attend to such a party, with Caitians it would become a purrrrty though.

This would be great if you wanted to enact some kind of gift exchange at an event.

It is Earth Space Dock after all so it wouldn't be too much a stretch to see a Christmas / Hanukah celebration in Club 47.

My suggestion, from months ago, would be to mechanically separate the instance of Club 47 from Sol Spacedock and make it an entirely unique instance (though it would still appear to be in the same place as ever). Allow it to hold double the normal capacity of regular instances so people can pack into it easily and have a decent party or Fleet gathering of some kind. We had real trouble trying to use Quarks and Club 47 early on for RP because we'd all end up in different instances, as teams have a limited size, and even then a given instance can cap out or even dynamically change instance #'s.

The displayed instance number we have now makes it a little easier sorting out where we 'are' but those instance population caps can still be a bother.

So I'd turn Club 47 into STO's version of CoH's Pocket D. Why Club 47 and not Quarks? Because anyone can get there regardless of level, you're not going to get jumped by random encounters, and we all can transwarp instantly to Sol. I assume there'd be a similar place Klingon side. Mixing and matching between factions can be problematic given how players can behave and for the sake of verisimilitude. You'd want each side to have a comfy clubhouse of their own.

Player stations and multiplayer ships will eventually mitigate the need for a "Pocket 47" but not replace it. An easy to get to, central, location where folks can just randomly run into new people is always a draw.

That sounds like a terrific idea, Oddjob. I also like Amosov's brilliant idea about having it look out on internal spacedock. Shoot, I'd get a lifetime membership just so I could experience that whenever I wanted.

Its not just Club 47 its the other areas as well. Normally when you play MMORPG's there are certain virtual social areas in which you can trade, communicate, recruit players for fleets/guilds etc. In STO although there are planety of areas to socialise they do not seem to be very active even at the most busy times. This is a shame but hopefully by introducing things like Daboo game and having social events we can improve the community.
