Keep the Enterprise E
 
I know that the current trend going around the forums is submissions for the new Enterprise F. However, I find this unnecessary. The Enterprise E is still out there somewhere. I don't think she should be replaced yet. Anyone agree?

It isn't a trend, it is an official contest. Soo it is happening whether you think it should or not.

It's practically a 40 year old ship. With the rate of advancing technology, she's pretty old. Also it would seem rather unimpressive compared to the hundreds of Sovereign class ships people are flying in. Also story wise, the Enterprise E has mysteriously gone missing after inspecting a distress call from a federation station. It's been missing a few years so they probably gave up hope. Unlike Voyager, it was in federation space so it should've been found.

I for one blame Iconians.

I think between those two reasons, starfleet probably would've built a new flagship and a new enterprise.

The Ent F contest stems from the original idea of wanting to add the End J into the game. That idea was vetoed but CBS said Crytpic could add a different "futuristic" ship. That got expanded into the idea of having a contest for the fans to create the futuristic F ship. That's really all there was to it. Besides, the Ent E Refit is now 24 years old based on STO's timeline - the Sovereign Class being 37 years old. It's time for an upgrade.

I like the contest, the horrible page it's entrants have to deal with is another story though. (this is likely why people are posting their designs on the forums, that's the only way they'll ever get seen at all) At this point the only change i think they should make is nixxing the whole user voting thing and just go through all the entries themselves.

Who said anything about it being destroyed? It could very well simply be decommissioned. Happens all the time when things live out their usefulness.



Oh crap, brb, gotta call my grandpa

the user voting thing, does not decide the winner.

they will go through it themselves. the star rating is just to say if you like it a design or not. it decides nothing.

you may want to read the contest judging portion of the rules. If the entries don't break any other rules they'll be picking from the top 25 voted entries.

I beleive that's been changed via a Dev statement on the forum saying basically they'll pick the winner.
