Wait?

We have Uniforms?

WHERE?

(Uniform, meaning Alike or equal, from latin... Hence there are no Uniforms in STO).

Fair enough.

From my point of view, asking the Devs to allow players to have little icons placed on the charaters suit is neat. But with all the noise about everything else in the game, then I would prefer the request be specialized to the character suit that best represents the Dress Uniform (the character suit NOT worn in a battle environment).

If, in the end, there is no such thing (and some players probably do not care either way), then the accolade medals is still just neat. I'd rather the Devs focus on ... something less cosmetic and more functional.

Don't get me wrong, if they actually put it in place, then I'll go for it.

there also can be a place to place the ribbons on your sash, you can add them to a formal uniform structure or simply disable the ribbons when combat is enabled in some way or in a place where there is literally no combat (ie. ESD)

Completely agree.. Not all accolades, just some awesome ones

I don't recall ever seeing decorated uniforms in Star Trek, but my memory is a bit shakey on that, on a dress uniform maybe, but the daily casuals, never.
Maybe an accolades tab on player info would be OK, but the additional graphics of having a rainbow cabbage patch on uniforms themselves I just don't see happening.

This would be perfectly consistent with US uniform policy.

This sort of thing has been brought up in the past, and I've always liked the idea. The closest we got was when they added our Accolade Score to our character's info box.

I would love some way to display my accolades. I mean sure, some of them were just grindfests (score One Zillion Points of Energy Flavor X Damage) that involved no skill, but some (M.A.C.O. Team Commander) required teamwork, significant effort, and none-too-little apptitude. These latter I'm particularlly proud of.

If on-character representation is perhaps too difficult, I would they would at least bring back the character web page that used to exist on the STO site. On the pre-PW assimilation STO web page there existed User Pages. Each user could be looked up via their @handle and you could then view their characters. It was a little buggy, but it did show off that characters Accolades (complete with little "medals" for each).

Hopefully the STO Gateway will have a similar feature.

I feel ya, I'm have an Accolade Score over 14k on my Main. If his were medals/ribbons being worn, I'd epect he wouldn't be able to stand upright without some anti-gravity assistance.

Oh, very neat! Yes, having something like this in my ship (in the Captain's Quarters, for instance) would be great. Increasing the number of displayed trophies (As we only have 7 between the mess hall and ready room) would be nice, too.

It would be awesome to have a medal case in our quarters. There's pretty much no reason to go in there right now.

I like the idea too or a display case similar to data's i rarely ever visit my bridge and perhaps adding some more personal stuff about the character would make it more interactive.
