TNG Bundle
 
Since it has been 25 years since TNG started (and for some of us Star Trek started with it), i think it would be appropriate to release a TNG series bundle.
I mean the Holodeck Worf simulation was nice but it think many players want more TNG stuff and Cryptic wants our money.

Here are some ideas of what could be included:

- A improved TNG series Uniform, one that is much more professional done, like the DS9 Admiral Uniform for instance.
- A improved All good Things Uniform, without (or a very small) cumberbund.
- A alternative TNG series Uniform with closed Collar (like in TNG: Yesterdays Enterprise) and Belt.
- Picard hair.

- A Galaxy Class ship like in the TNG: Yesterdays Enterprise. A much more tactical focussed Galaxy Class with the BOFF layout of a Ferengi D'Kora or Regent class.
- No saucer seperation.
- A special Beam Overload Console only useable on Galaxy Class ships.
(I just HATE that the devs made this ship so teethless. Even a Ferengi ship has more tactical BOFF slots in STO.
The Galaxy Class was build to operate far from any reinforcements, it needs more Firepower!)


- A heavily redressed Galaxy Class Bridge like in that same Episode.

- A "Generations" like Bridge

- Galaxy Class ship interior.
(Yeah, i know someone at cryptic seems to hate TNG series design but for many of us the Galaxy Class is still THE iconic Star Trek ship.)

- TNG like "Cobra Phasers" that do Exploit Damage, just like the Compression Phaser Pistol but with the look of TNG Phasers.
(i just hate those phaser compression pistols we have in STO.)

- TNG like Phaser rifles (split beam rifles maybe?)

- An Android Bridge Officer, different stats than the 700day reward BO.

- Maybe some special DOFFs like a holodeck specialist, like Barclay.


If someone has additional ideas of what could be included, please feel free to contribute.

Live long and prosper.

sounds pretty good to me..

and i totally agree the galaxy class only is pretty teethless. 2 tactical slots? come on cryptic. Galaxy class ship and bridge is my favorite

Only problem with "some" current bridge interiors is they are large enough to play football in...they really need to be scaled way down...the TV / movie series bridges were probably 1/2 the scale of the in-game ones we currently have...

The best two bridges / interiors I've seen to date is the bundle pack ones...scale wise not to shabby at all and way more realistic size wise...

Yea just got the TOS bundle myself not to long ago and gotta say the interior is pretty spot on, in fact I'd go so far as to say the hallways are actually a little smaller than they should be (that.. and engineering is sadly missing the 2nd level ladder and aux control room in the back..).

I have seen the TOS bridge first hand and i wonder, why they didn't do all the other bridges in the same scale?
On the other hand sector space is so small, but the interiors are abnormally big. Someone must have been a bit confused about scales in general, lol.

I think they would make a lot of cash if they would release a TNG bundle with a reaonable sized interior, some TNG equipment (like the Cobra phasers, which do exploit damage) and a enhanced (TV like) Galaxy Class.
Personally i would pay just as much as the Odyssey bundle costs.


Live long and prosper.

Agreed
 
I have been hoping for a TNG bundle since they came out with the TOS bundle! All I would like is the TNG intereiors to scale, the TNG series bridge+battle bridge (especially when we go to sucer sep mode we should have the Battle bridge when using the battle section).
Also, and this one is huge, officers walking around my galaxy clas ship wearing the post season 3 uniforms!

Big wish list but I beleive these are a must for a TNG bundle pack and please Cryptic there are only two things I'll ever beg you for and the other would be a full Romulan Faction(TNG style :))

Maybe some of the things on my list could be part of one of the next lock boxes, like the phased Tetryon weapons or the DS9 uniform pack.

They could name it the TNG lock Boxes. :)


Live long and prosper.

I agree with most everything here except the console should be universal, and sauser seperation should work with any galaxy class or ship that has that ability.

Thr tng yesterdays enterprise uniform, gun belt, and bridge I have been a proponent for and have asked for since launch. I would also like to see a tng admirals uniform from seasons 3-7.


i would ask that cryptic would not include the generations version that did not make it in the film, the one that looks like a cross between a navy & love boat uniform, with rank rings on the sleves, the 1960s are long gone and never made it into tng.

Last thought z-store price needs to be reasonable, no crazy outrageous price.

Thank you.

These are excellent ideas!

Um, why not?
There are so many ugly uniforms in this game, i think it is time for a uniform some people like.
For example, i don't like/use the Jupiter uniforms myself but i would never say that other people shouldn't use them if they like it.:)
My point, STO is big enough for a lot of different uniforms, the generations uniform would be a good addition.

Personally, i especially like the Rank sleeves on that uniform, i wish we could get an option to use them on other uniforms too.

Live long and prosper.
