Possible new costume rank piece?
 
Would it be possible to get the 'Deputy Director' and/or 'Fleet Captain' rank insignias for our Starfleet costumes? I'd love to be able to have it on my character.

For reference:

Looks nice. I've never seen Fleet Captain before. Sloan wore that Deputy Director for a cover-up, right?

Yep, Sloan wore it once on DS9 (in a holodeck recreation of DS9 to get Bashir to join Section 31...), but I imagine since Bashir didnt call him out on the wrong rank that it is a rank in starfleet...

Fleet captain was referenced once or twice, in TOS, (I think Pike held that rank), and was never seen again, ut most people have given it the 5 gold pips, and that seems to be the most accepted.

I don't think anyone with the rank "Fleet Captain" was ever seen. They did have Commodores in TOS, though, and it's probably equivalent to that.

Pike was stated to be a fleet captain in The Menagerie.

what I would give for Deputy Director :P hence my fleet Section 31 Delta :) would fit perfect in it.

Commodore is Rear Admiral lower half.

Imho, Commodore also sounds better than "Rear Admiral, lower half". :cool:

new ships needed in game
 
i really think perfectworld should put the U.S.S. Kelvin into the game from the very beginning of the new star trek movie, its the ship kirks father is captain of before his son's birth and it looks unique with two deflectors on it

woerligen 07-23-2012 02:28 AM

The Kelvin has only one defeflector, at the front of the engineering hull.
However, it is unlikely we'll see this ship in the foreseeable future because:
1) although it's still part of STO timeline, it belongs to Abram's movies and is therefore off-limits,
2) it is almost two hundred years old (other old ships were species-specific or a former Enterprise) and
3) there's no trend implying older ships will be made soon. We do not even have the Andorian battleship, yet.

In short: No Kelvin-type in STO
