Sadly, I find myself less and less interested in these special projects as time goes by.
Had they added an actual shuttle bay to the starbase, that allows you to switch over to and fly a shuttlecraft, that I would have been somewhat impressed by.
Let us add more accessible levels to our starbase, with sick bays and shuttle decks and science labs, etc. And stuff to do in them. That will definitely get my attention.
Pretty, non-functional projects are going to remain way down at the bottom of my list to queue up and contribute to. I appreciate the art time that went into them, and the quality of the work, but I'm just not interested in spending Dilithium on them.

Too bad the fleet bases cannot be social hubs, as a player gets booted to his last location before entering the fleet system after relogging. Cryptic, PLEASE do not close the fleet starbase instances after a player has left it!!! PLEASE enable these awesome places to be what they are supposed to be: SOCIAL hubs. Even in the largest fleets you are almost always alone there...
It would be nice if they were active as long as a member of the fleet were logged in.
