# 1 UI Enhancement
11-26-2012, 05:02 PM
Many moons ago, an artist formerly known as Thomas the Cat (now known as Thomas the CrypticCat), created a thread with several examples of possible minigames for STO. That thread has since been archived in the Great Forum Shuffle of 2012 (located at

Now, while many of us have come to love (or hate) these minigames (most notably, the scanning minigame), i'm wondering when it might be that we see more of these minigames, and/or the potential for "enhancing" the existing ones. Most notably, the scanning minigame.

Compare Thomas the Cat's UI Mock-Up:

Ingame Scanning Game:

You'll note for example, that the mock-up had a potential "Science slot" which could enhance your scanning results to a certain extent. Since the introduction of the "Duty Officer System" and the "Department Heads", i'd hope they would one day re-visit the scanning mini-game, and to implement certain "buffs" to the scanning process, based on whatever Science department head you currently have active. We have a bunch of Department Heads. Let's give them some actual benefit in the game.

Some of the minigame additions like the bonus from a sci, engi or tac officer for a specific task is on their wall of wanted additions; just that there is more resources dedicated to other parts of the game atm.
