I didn't recall noticing this before, but when I played through the intro last night with a new char, I noticed that when crewpeople sat at some of the bridge seats on the Origin bridge, the seat beneath them vanished. This includes the XO chair the player first is sitting in.
Glad to see that for Assimilation of the Innocent, you can once again take a second BOff, and even choose which one. ^_^ Shouldn't it automatically be Flores though? Or is their other pop-up dialogue for the others now?
