# 1 gesturing

Imagine if we, IRL gestured the way the characters do in STO? That would be pretty funny to watch and yet kinda sad. You'd think the person had some kind of disorder.

For one, the Romulan woman standing outside Admiral Quinn's office just talking to herself using hand and arm movements.

The mission where you get the Ambassador class ship, you order humanoid nutritional supplement and you kind of wave your hands and swing your arm as if you say, "there you go".

The Romulan ambassador is not talking to herself, another one is standing next to her cloaked.

I'd never get work done because I wouldn't be touching the keyboard!

I think we both need to get some professional help.

I always thought she was on the phone.

I think that when we talk in zone chat, etc., our toon should move their hands and body like they were actually speaking.

That would make it more realistic I think.

Its not like a lot of work would need to be done for it. The 'conversation' animation already exists because the NPCs use it when they talk to you or others.

I guess you guys are too young to visit a bar, especially a college town bar, during Happy Hour.
If your post is anything like, "I have a sandwich so you can't be starving" it's time to rethink posting.

What does that have to do with the topic?

The topic is that gesturing in STO is ludicrous and wouldn't happen IRL. The post you quoted implied Drunk College Students actually do behave like that.
