I liked how only the console display screens flashed to denote interactabilty, instead of the whole console, in the mission Chasing Shadows
I really really REALLY liked this in "Skirmish". It was so much more awesome and subtle to have to "LOOK" for the flashing screens on the consoles.. rather than having the whole freaking console flashing. So much more appropriate and sophisticated to just make the screens flash. Having the whole console flash reminded me of games like "Dragon's Lair"... and not in a good way. Flashing screens is WAY better.
also: the Defera sector "Sector Space" is one of the most gorgeous places in all of STO.
I agree it was soooooo much better having the panel flash instead of the entire console. it was such an eyesore, but that makes it much, much cleaner. doing that with other objects, like lockers or crates would simply require adding a small panel to them and have that flash instead.
