Might just be my connection, but every time I beam to a planet or starbase, I'll still have the starship model for about 10 seconds before it loads the character, and vice versa when going into space. Don't know if this has been reported already, but here's my report.
I get this everytime i change from space to ground and back. the time it takes to sort its life out varies. Last time it was a good 10 minutes. when i was a little man in space i found turning impulse on made my man walk and then pop! i was a ship again.
