1) emotes that dont require me to go into a popup menu and scroll a list and click on it
2) Visual Emotes for RPers:
-different stages of battle damage "Red Alert!"
-leaking coolant random explosions
-dirfting, listing "Daisy... daaaisy..."
-do a barrel role! loopty-loop? "Fly her apart then!"
-ships lights on, ships light off "We just lost power!"
-attack patern emotes (though not necessarily usable in combat but just something to look at instead of listing slighty to the side)
-big lights when its too dark in an asteroid cavern
-eject escape pods
-eject warp core
I also like the damaged emotes above (drifting, leaking, listing, eject pods, etc)
Scanning, Sir: The ship forward scanning graphic.
Ship Salute: Single photon torp... could also be used for "shot across the bow"
Burst Engines: like the prep to warp speed glow
Beacons: higher intensity beacon flashes.. the "hey, I'm over here" emote
Role Flags for indicating intended team purpose (tanky, DPS, healing)
Emergency lights: like an ambulance
Space 'em: eject humanoids from air lock (perhaps Klingon Only)
Dans Idea for a /spock would be fun, and I still stick by my /disabled concept, but a few others i'd like would be
/spotlight - activate search lights that shine on nearby surfaces (asteroids) it was one of those cool little effects form the episode with the Pegasus
/quarantine - activates orange quarantine lights and local chat says "Extreme caution! The USS <ShipName> is a quarantined vessel by order of Starfleet Command. Do not board!"
/abandon - launches escape pods (might be a bit time consuming, as each ship has unique escape pod locations)
/fireeverything - blindly fires weapons for a single salvo in a random direction within their arc (forward for cannons and torpedoes), if an ally is targeted it appears as though the weapons fire on that target, great for RP!
/warp - warp animation, but you reappear a moment later
/transwarp - same as above but with transwarp
/transwarpf - Excelsior in Search for Spock, engine sputter... dies.
/autodestruct or /destruct - long drown out explosion animation, no damage, no actual death, ship simply lists as a burning hulk till a new emote is used or the ship moves.
a KDF specific emote
/wings - change the attack position of the wings on your bird of prey (and thus allow us to pick if we want to keep our wings up or down at all times... basically
/wings 0 - wings act like normal
/wings 1 - wings are always up
/wings 2 - wings are always down
