Well, that's a lot of it. I just don't want to bother anyone. I could ask, but it seems like I'd be imposing.

Having everything pulsating is going to be very, very distracting. There's a reason ships don't have blinking red lights during battle-stations - it would be hard as hell to focus on what needs to be done.

If ANYTHING should blink, it should be you ship's health once it drops below 25 or 50%. I get popped in the Chel Grett because it is difficult to notice the health in your peripheral vision.
It's not a glaringly obvious <Blink> effect, it's a light pulsating effect that whilst barely noticeable does give a little life to the UI in line with the LCARS feel.

As for my own feelings on the UI, can it be made more noticeable when an exploit attack will trigger it's exploit effect, as it stands the border is barely noticeable in the heat of battle.

As someone that started a House (Fleet) on the Klingon side just after the Starbases became online, you will burn out very quickly trying to build a Starbase/Embassy with only one man - in my case, several friends helped a bit, but still it was 95% me, and after getting the Starbase to just over Tier 1, and seeing what the (then new) Embassy would take - I burned out and took a couple months off. Not recommended .....

Oh, I get that. Mostly the big problem I have is that I do that anyway, so it's not a huge issue for me.

DRATS, boffs stations gone same with all my doffs, but ship gear and even personal inventory were there on that transfer

I'm guessing my crew staged a mutiny and left since i wouldn't take them to Risa for the bikini competition

On this transfer it took forever to get to DS9

I use these buttons all the time on holodeck. They are convenient to all bridge officer and power tray abilities.

So when will we begin testing out the new faction? It'd be nice to have enough time to create and fully level one of each character class before the release.

I created a new fed to test the new character creation system. It looks nicer but doesn't seem to be more efficient. It is probably just because I have not used it enough and am totally accustomed to the old setup.

Something to note, all the cutscenes on New Romulus, from the reputation missions, have messed up animations. Half the time the characters get stuck mid-walk, and look like they've been frozen from the neck down.
