Cryptic, heres my suggestion, please read it if nothing else.

Could we have profiles, maybe something we have to spend merits on, or rank based to unlock, maybe 1 at commander, 1 at captain and 1 at the admiral levels, so 4 in all, or just cost them incrementally, .5k, 1k, 1.5k, 2k.

Ship profiles,
Stick alittle button like the rename and inventory buttons on the ship equipment screen that has a drop drop list of each profile (a profile we could rename of course, its custom name would appear in the list)

I would like to be able to enter a space battle and change my ship loadout according to the situation quickly and smoothly with just 1 click. (a setup for to defend against disruptors for pvp, 1 for borg, etc.

Same could be done for ground combat in the same way, I'm not sure how much coding this would take but I can't imagine it would be alot, maybe 1 person for a few weeks.

I don't know what ideas you guys at Cryptic have for duty officers and over-all revamps, I hope you'll consider this, maybe this could be something a duty officer could handle, they could have traits (a knowledge of borg weapons trait could give a bonus to shields against borg attack, unlock a borg space/ground character profile and they could give you suggestions on best setup (i.e. maybe adaptive shields for borg space, and repel weapons for ground are 2 examples) Having a specialist in crew on hirogen would be helpful with hints tips and alittle bonus if I use his setup profile, this would also make you want to equip your ship for each profile, giving more value to items and more things to do/collect/make.

A simple drop down box with a few profiles or something complex with duty officers or bridge crew would be excellent.

Thanks for reading.

As to your idea, I support/agree with you, so long as it only changes your configuration for that ship. I don't think we should be able to switch ships on the fly.

Doesn't sound like a bad idea. I have always been surprised that we can just "swap out" major components like shields and weapons without being in spacedock, but since we can do that, this just seems like a convenience feature. So I suppose I support it.

But yes, definitely no insta-swapping of ships outside of the dock.
