Weapon design
 
Anyone think they should redo the skins on some of the weapons like the high density compression pistol, or blast assault? Make them look cardassian, or jem hadar, which they have a model of in ESD's requisition room on those shelves on the wall between there and club 47, or any other race.

Meh... i think they should rather re-do the whole thing... Skins, models...

Most weapons are rediciously oversized and look waaayyyyy too cartoonish.

Speaking of over-sized and cartoonish...

Where are the bazooka's and heavy heavy weapons?

That would be nice. Most of the player usable weapons are too big. The Pistol and rifle from the Romulan FE, TOS type 2 and the TOS Klingon disruptor look good. Almost everything else is over-sized.

The tetryon weapons in game would look fine if they were just scaled down a little.

They could also look at some of the guns from ENT, like the ones the Andorians and Vulcans used in the shadows of P'jem episode.

I am pretty sure that the Tetryon Rifles are *inspired* by / 2409 versions of the Hirogen Rifle:

in that case it rather should be scaled up a bit ;P

This could also apply to the summonable turret, mortar, and transphasic bomb.

After looking at those pictures, I have to agree with you. I didn't get to watch much Voyager once it went to UPN (it never came in clearly and I didn't have cable) so I didn't even think that they could be modeled after the Hirogen rifles..

dont even think about scaling them things up!

If anything most of the weapons could do with a 10% reduction in scale

Thats kinda what we are saying... I dont think anyone wants the weapons to be scaled up.
