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?
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.
