# 1 Manual Steering Column
03-11-2011, 06:48 AM
Now that Escorts (right now just the Prometheus and the refit) have the MVAM I was thinking it would be neat to have a manual steering column (as seen in Insurrection) for the Sovereign. Since it would be console based it could add a movement bonus to the Sovereign making it a little bit more manueverable. Thoughts?

this has been suggested before

but in theory would be really hard to do, how would you implement it? be something like evasive maneuvers?

beyond that, i couldnt tell you

It was an awful addition to the Star Trek and it would be equally awful in STO. It should remain buried with that horrible movie where it belongs.

seriously though how cheesy was it to have a quickshot joystick used to fly the enterprise. riker pilots a ship that size and at those speeds with no instumentation whatsoever.

insurrection was pretty poor if you need more info and how bad and how funny a review can be try this :

Uhh... no.

I can't see how it would work for Assault Cruisers like the Sovereign. You already have consoles in game that can improve a ship's speed and maneuverability, so whatever the Column does for that would be redundant. Besides, as others have said, the helm joystick was basically an unnecessary element for, to me, what was a semi-enjoyable movie.

Dunno if STO has it or not but Proper joystick support would be the only thing i could see being added to the game.
I mean seriously? a manual steering column would in no way improve maneuvrability of a starship on the specs.
