Science ships could have a full tactical crew but you miss out on the science bonus and...some ships aren't equipped to do certain things.

So similar idea but BO layout is tied to rank, not ship.
I like this idea the most.

did i miss the memo where all ships were made to not be available to all classes? I seems to still have my escort, cruiser and science ships available to fly...

This, and changing BO layouts would be a major nerf to many builds and even if it was optional, I do not low forward to facing a cruiser hull with a escort boff layout, as stated in my previous comment.

Personally i would like it to be easier to switch between ships without having to respec all the time.

Other than that I like ships being different :-)

Personally, I don't mind at all about respeccing when taking another ship for a spin because people are meant to have disadvantages and not be 100% (or even close to) efficient at everything. That's exactly why Cryptic put the Skill Cap in the game in the first place, remember?

I would love it however if whenever we switched ships, we wouldn't have to fiddle with the power-trays before setting to space because quite frankly, that's the main reason I dread changing ships, even as I level up and obtain a higher-tier ship!

I think that every ship ought to have one Universal slot (to replace an existing fixed slot), without forcing the BoP's to give up their existing Universal slots. It should never replace the highest ranking console, which should conform to the intended purpose of the ship, and should never be higher than LT.

This would increase the versatility of every ship and allow Captains to take more advantage of their class without necessarily being overpowered.

But, I dont see that happening and I'm content to play just like it is as long as they don't implement the ridiculous notion of forcing captains to fly their class.

I know that. but it would be nice to have something like a spec change... without having to pay for a respec. me personally i like to fly my escort and my cruiser... I could ofcourse level a second tac officer

Just my opinion though..

But you are right with the action bars and BO layout. It is somewhat annoying to have to set it up again every time.

Couldn't we just give every single ship an extra universal BOFF slot? There are very few 'powers' at low level so this would give everyone something else to do and wouldn't unbalance things. I've just made it to Lt Cmdr on my Fed and it's been really tedious doing ten levels where all I have is a very limited number of 'powers'. An extra boff slot would let me be a bit more tactical.

Therefore Cryptic marked these requests as "Nice to Have" and moved on...
