With regards to storage, i find that i never have enough. would be possible with the addition of the ship interiors that you implement a cargo bay aboard ships as an alternate/additional storage method.
Will there be more customizations to your ships? and is it possible to get a different design for the Lt C escort ship for the federation? its one of the stupidest designs. also the Klingon Lt C bird of prey has no ship customization at all. and how about more ships like the Romulan bird of prey or even the Vulcan ships. oh and making the rare particles drop a little more often than what they do. cause you have to mine for hours before you get one maybe two rare particles. so it seems rather useless
Hey can you improve the Gal X? After all it is a dreadnaught and should not have the same hull strength as the other tier 5 ships maybe the same as the klingon carrier. Also can you add another weapon slot to the fore and aft make the cool down 30sec on the lance phaser. While your at it add an extra slot for everything on every ship, yeah that would be great.
On another note I have noticed that if you promote your bridge officers to Commander they can use all of their skills on the ground battles but if your in space they are limited. I think the ships should be designed to make use of all their skills. I know you can't have them all commanders in the beginning but as you get promoted and you promote them. You can use your skills they should have the same ability.
in the R&D will we ever get the oppertunity to 'design' our own items? i.e. take the basic stats of X and whatever mark, and then 1 add on would make it uncommon and cost some low level data samples 2 would be blue and cost more 3 = very rare and cost high level data samples.
