There have been a variety of transporter effects used in Star Trek:

- TNG style
- Original Series (gold sparkles)
- Motion Picture
- TOS Movies (STVI style is a personal fave of mine)
- Borg, Romulan, and other misc effects

A customization option that enhances our characters but doesn't provide a combat advantage is a perfect candidate for a C-store item.

What do you think?
I like this idea. It keeps to the spirit of what the C-Store was originally meant for, and it's pretty darn cool. Heck, I'd even go with it being a per-character unlock in some way.

Yeah... yeah, I really like this idea! =)

This. Would give more point to the GPL currency.
You already use it to buy pretty things to put on your mantle on board your ship, or make your ship look different with the holo emitters. Using GPL to pretty up your transport beam fits in nicely with the 'social currency' idea of GPL.



Whats the transporter effect with the spirals in it. Thinking bajoran/cardasian. Would be neat too.

Does anyone know a good place to get screenshots or video clips of the various transporter effects? I'm having trouble finding solid references.

I use a program at my job called Particle Illusion that has several authentic recreations of various transporter effects meant to be composited onto live footage. If interested, I may be able to kick a few vids and post them on Youtube or Vimeo.

Signed, definitely, and I can't see it being that expensive either.

I to really like this idea and I'll see if I can pass this thread along to him (can't guarantee that he'll reply though), but if he does I'm sure it'll get passed along to the C-Store team.
I'm guessing the C-Store team is double the size of the content team.
