I am very much appreciating these relatively minor details:
1) Distinctive, cleaner looking career badges on the character selection screen
2) Distinctive, cleaner looking badges on the BOff selection screen(s)
3) Shield arc indicators that change color relative to the remaining shield health
Yes, I think I remember seeing one of my shield indicators turn red now you say that. That's a smart move, and I like it. I wished there was a way to switch the visual off altogether though for when I am taking my screen shots.
The improved career badges are a distinct improvement too, and they are the first thing you notice when you create a new character.
