Mirror Universe ship skins
 
I'll admit, I've always been pretty obsessed with the mirror universe. I'm at this moment considering purchasing the ST:ENT pack and cruising around in the NX Class with those mirror universe uniforms. But what about the look of the ship? I would gladly pay for the option of putting the Terran Empire sword and Earth symbol on my ship's hull with the old style "lightning bolts".

Do you mean the yellow pattern on the ship as well? If so, I would love to have that option, and the ISS prefix, available to all ships.

if you got the mirror versions of the assualt cruiser and star cruiser and the mirror patrol escort you can have these skins on the "normal" versions from the c-store but the mirror skins can only be used on respective ship and not on all ships

I've always thought that we should be able to have the mirror pattern and symbols on every Federation ship in the game. Based off the mirror event and missions, the design does exist on every ship, even the Odyssey (seen in Nukara missions). So, why do we only get it for a certain number of Rear Admiral ships? My thought was, there could be an accolade that unlocks the skin on at least a few more ships when you acquire all six lock-box mirror ships (2 escorts, 2 cruisers, 2 science).

Also, why do the mirror ships not come the Terran Empire symbol instead of the Federation one on the ships?

+1 for more costume options and ISS prefix for ALL (I dont always play RP, OK I never play RP but still think they should have fun too)

Having a Mirror Universe Defiant or Galaxy-class would be pretty nice.

How would Starfleet know that the Mirror vessels are captured ones rather than just Mirror Universe ships coming in to make life hard for everyone??

I like mirror ships for their low prices; it helps to be able to spend less than 60k ec for switching from one sci ves hull to another.

I don't know about the rest of the ships, but having the ability to have Terran Imperial Starfleet markings on the Defiant, TOS Constitution and NX classes would be nice since, oh, we've seen them in the Mirror Universe episodes.

Okay, we never saw the Mirror NCC-1701 from the outside, but still... The Mirror NX-01 introduced the yellow lightning markings, but you can't have them on the NX ships in-game... and the creation of the ISS Defiant was the turning point that brought the Terran Empire back from the ashes, it needs to be acknowledged.

I think, based on their releases of current Mirror options (ie. released in lockboxes), there are two possibilities that I'd like to see that seem pretty reasonable if enough people like it:-

Firstly, have a special box in the lockboxes that gives the option for players to add an 'I.S.S./A.K.S./A.R.W.' prefix to an existing ship, along with its Mirror texture, but not an actual ship itself. I doubt they'll release a Mirror version of Zen Store ships simply because it'll take away from profits, so, they can do the next best thing and put the textures and registry in the box, but no alternate ship. It'll be a good workaround for the non-releasing of Mirror Zen ships

Or, alteratively, release Mirror ships of lower Tier ships that we can use for any type of that ship (e.g. Mirror Akira ship with textures and registry so that the T5 Armitage for example can use the textures)
