I know that people have said its a game limitation, but anything can be overcome and I for one would be more then willing to pay for this feature as an unlock on a character.
Pretty much im faced with this problem ~
I have dumped hundreds of hours into my main Federation character, have easily over $1000 USD put into her. And as much as I want to lvl up a new AoD character, they will never be as good as my main. So I would simply like to use the Discovery effects such as beaming, warping, scanning, and anything else I missed. Even just beaming and warping would be fine and I would have no problem shelling out even up to $20 USD for that simple feature.
Let us players that have been here a while also be able to be part of the group.
Without having to go through ungodly grind again. Please?
Edit: And I know this is at least partially possible due to the April fools event that allows us to turn on the joke sounds of the devs and peeps making all the sounds of our ships and effects.
