Point 1:

I expected him to have the same holographic flickering like the Tutorial Hologram...

and of course ...he does not !.... not even when hit by Phaser Fire.

He is just a Human with a Sci KIT for all that i see...
there is nothing Holographic about that guy

the effect allready exists so USE IT!


Point 2:
I cant change his Uniform?... the option is greyed out:

Things i want to change:
- Uniform (realy does NOT fit with the rest of my crew)
- Combadge (i want my 100 day Future Variant Badge, not the default STO one...)
- Stance

i am perfectly fine with it that we can not change his face or attributes, he is a standard type hologram after all, but come on at least the Uniform?! We can do it with the Amazon Borg BO so why not here?

While the flickering certainly is a dead give-away for being holographic, the Doctor never flickered for no reason. Maybe the EMH in the tutorial did so because there was fighting going on and the ship was damaged. But i am with you about changing the uniform, stance. And maybe that holo guy should flicker when hit by weapons fire.

Im wondering why i care, i will never have the Holo BO anyway.

I fully agree with Z3R0 on this. The holographic boffs looks should be editable, of all the creatures in the universe one would think a hologram is one of the easiest to change their visual appearance. No invasive surgery, no implants, no genetic alterations, not even an actual change of clothes, just a few concise commands and you can have the damn thing looking like Shirley Temple.

I also agree on adding the flicker, at least as an optional extra. For me the flickering is a part of what would make it unique, without any real visual representation he might aswell be as flesh and blood as all the rest of my Boffs and i could just make one that looks how i want with the alien boff option and call that a hologram in its bio.

People complained about the lack of customisation in the Borg Boff and Cryptic went and changed that for them so if we want the ability to edit our holo boffs we should kick up a bit of a stink about it too.

the klingon version looks just like a standard klingon and is uncustomizable, and it's title ingame is kdf science officer (not like the fed photonic science officer, but it does have allse the same traits)

Well I do hope they make it fully customizable. What I mean by that is you should have full choice of race. There's no reason that the EMH or the Borg BO shouldn't be able to do that.

I know that the Doctor and other Holograms did only Flicker if there was reason to (and it would have been EXPENSIVE to let one char run arround the ship for the whole Voyager Series with Starwars like flickering Holoerrors... even Andromeda got an RL Avatar after a few Episodes because they could not do it all the time.), but come on it's a game, if you call it Holographic it has to represent that somehow.

Also here you get a CANON reason to let them flicker:
The Mobile Emitter of the Voyager EMH was from the 29th Century! We are at 2409, it still has to has some glitches if it is pirated Tech from the Future or those Holograms could not even beam down!
