More Miranda light Cruiser varients, please!
 
I would like to see several Miranda varients added for additional customization for the Tier 1 ship. I would even pay Zen for these:

Miranda without rollbar. Example: U.S.S. Lantree from "Unnatural Selection" (TNG)

Miranda with side mounted pods like seen on the U.S.S. Saratoga in "Emissary" (DS9)

Mayflower and/or Armstrong from Star Trek (2009)

Miranda varients from Simon and Schuster Starship Creator

TOS style pre-refit Miranda. I think this was described as the Anton varient and is seen in a few of the Star Trek comics.


The ship names mentioned can be used to designate those varients ingame. Also part inspired from Starship Creator can be inserted in with the rollbar-less Lantree and Saratoga varients.

More tier 1 ships would be pretty cool. The Miranda varient in the TNG time loop episode is pretty cool too, I forget the name at the moment.

Soyuz class - USS Bozeman. Loved that episode. :)

Nice, you can't go wrong covering a sci-fi ship in antennae I always say.

Thanks, I forgot about that one. It would be nice to have all of these varients as a C-store pack.

C-Store? You would be willing to spend money on a tier 1 ship? It would be nice to have some variety with the tier ones but since you're soon done with them what's the point?

The Miranda is one of the iconic vessels of Trek, and has seen a fair few variants. It would be good to have parts to customise it and make one of your own.

Likewise with the Oberth class. You only have to Google image 'Oberth variant' to see about a dozen of the creative variations of that ship too. My favorite is the torpedo variant! :D

Honestly, there should be more small T5 ships that aren't escorts. Making them Crusiers might be a bit silly, but there's no reason they can't be Science Ships.

If throwing money at them will make it happen, then hells yea! Besides, what is the point of the skins or bridge packs? There is not much point beyond asthetics. I am simply suggesting that releasing all these varients as a c-store ship skin pack might encourage the programers to invest the time and energy. Call me a capitalist, but you get more when you use a carrot.

Yeah, I wish the Soyuz was in place of the Centaur in the T-1 ship line.
