Lack of detail on Chimera
So, it's the little things that bug me, but maybe because there are those of us on the forums who pointed it out and it finally got done on the Odyssey but not the Chimera.

The Chimera only has her registry number on the top and bottom of the saucer, and her name only on the top of the saucer.

Now, I get that it's a small ship, but why not at least throw on the Starfleet pennant on the hull, like the Odyssey, the Intrepid, and the Constitution. Q knows there's enough space there.

Bonus points if the ship name could show up somewhere else (I imagine the backside of the giant hull to be a cargo shuttlebay, so that would be a good place) or the registry number to show up as well.

Decals. They're cool.

I agree with this completely. I can't imagine any person who is a Trek fan to forget something as basic as the Starfleet pennant some where. Has there ever been a Federation starship in any show or movie of any series that did not have the Starfleet logo somewhere on the ship? Also, you can't put your fleet logo on the ship.

Unfortunately it is an oft overlooked decal. I can imagine it presents issues lining up correctly with ships that have interchangeable parts, but, considering the Chimera has none - it would be very welcome if it was added.

We tried to stay true to the design.

I respect that (even if I personally may still want the pennant on the hull).

It looks like the original design had the registry on the upper nacelles. I get that may not work with the transforming nacelles (which I totally dig).

Pretty please...

I loved it but I'm more KDF player which was awesome they atleast let you make a KDF one. Here is hoping they let you do some more KDF ships :)

I'm just glad it has RCS thrusters on more than just the saucer section, most of the other ships in-game are missing quite a few of them.

The original design has far more details, specially the bussard collectors and the connection between the upper and lower nacelles are looking dull on the ingame model. But thats the price you pay to make STO running on low end computers i guess? :(

the vet ships have some of the best detail of any ships they have made so far, they look incredibly good.

the kdf vet ship still doesn't have it nacelles extended in sector space though like it should. how am i the only one who has noticed this?
