Problems:

The only way to activate a ship after Incarna is to use dropdown menus which are horrible even for late 90's. Previously, a player could drag and drop the ship in empty space while docked in station and that ship would become active. Drag-and-drop was eliminated making the only available option the dropdown menu.

Additionally, a player could previously double-click on empty space in station to open the cargo hold of an active ship without opening the Ships window. That's no longer possible, so the only way to open the cargo hold is to open the Ships window and then double-click the active ship. There should be equally accessible options to open the cargo hold both with interface and keyboard shourtcuts.

Solution:

- Make a new division on Station Panel that will hold the active ship;
- Double clicking the ship icon there will open its cargo hold;
- Drag-and-drop a ship into that area to activate it.

This has been complained about in the forums. I think it was mentioned as "to be addressed" in a dev blog or in the info that came out of the emergency meeting a bit fuzzy on where I remember reading it though. The addition of more clicking than needed, especially when there had been less prior to Incarna is a problem that needs to be addressed though.

The Devs already said they would bring Station Spinning back in an upcoming patch, so just wait for it.

I saw a couple of threads in GD that ask specifically for this. Support the idea here if you like it.
