Fine.. O'Brien and Geordi's revolutionary modular ship construction system has made the need to completely phase out old hulls more or less obsolete. Tier 5-up away.

Just...just don't go too overboard. Be not blinded by nostalgia nerds, keep the torch burning for spiffy new 25th-century designs.

That is all I ask.

It's been pretty balanced for the last year, at least in terms of actual Fed ships. We've had the Ambassador (old), Vesta (new), Armitage (Old), Chimera (new), and Ody (new).

True enough, and I'm glad for it. If they ever do a T5 miranda or T5 connie I hope they add new-age skins for them (disappointing that they didn't do so for like the Steamrunner/Excelsior/Ambassador etc.) Especially the Steamrunner since they already had a "similar" skin in the Norway Heavy Escort (an Akira variant skin that's compatible with the HEC.

Relax, we're still never going to get a T5 Constitution class.

Does this mean we can get a galaxy that is more tactical focussed yet?

*looks at T5 Excelsior, an even older design that's been in the game for a while now*
unangbangkay, what's your point?:confused:

I've known this for a while, but it took that quote to make me give up on the "old ships must be inferior" sentiment.

I feel strangely zen about it now.

Been here since headstart and it's taken me a while for this too.
Ever since the appearance of the Excelsior I've been working on it..
I do certainly hope you can get that zen feeling to extend to other things as well.
It helps to keep you on the...less insane side of the world.:)

I'm pretty sure the money thrown at that would be amazing.
