Wacky ships!
My main issue with trek ships is their bridge location, in star wars their bridges are in just a poor location except they have windows so it's nessacary in trek, they are right on the top of the ship with a view screen so no windows, so the bridge could be exactly the same but in the middle of the ship and be much safer, BSG does this cause they have no windows.

meh thats just my thought,

Bridges positioned like that tend to be pretty common in sci-fi ship designs. It likely links to modern ships, where the bridge is typically placed high up to afford a great degree of visibility of the surrounding water.

Obviously in sci-fi, the capability of viewscreen technology means this isn't as necessary. Though we did see in the new Star Trek movie that the view screens were overlay displays on regular windows. I guess it's just a matter of whatever the designer feels like.

I think instead of giving out fancy (and useful) high end ships for the recruitment drive. Cryptic should give out something rediculous and uterly nonsensical.
Like a borg disco cube that does nothing but fire strobes and has spinning glowsticks on each corner

What are whacked out ships youd like to see?

How about some tribble-dice to hang off of my viewscreen?
