OP CONTINUES HERE!!!


Klingon:
*Most Canon Klingon ship designs in STO appear to be scaled 'against' Federation ships, and as such aren't even close to Canon scale.
*Basic Hull color is a different green than Canon. Perhaps make it a material choice?
*Where Is the K'Vort?


Tier 2:

Quldun BoP:
Quldun BoP Canon Inconsistencies:
*This ship uses the Enterprise series warship design that, for all intents and purposes, looks like an older B'Rel design. It seems highly unlikely that it would be superior to a ship about 100 years newer.


Tier 3:

Norghi BoP:
Norghi BoP Canon Inconsistencies:
*This is an ENT series-based model, sharing much of the design philosophy of the Tier2. It could at least be more 'TMP/TNG' like like it's actual predecessor, the B'Rel.

K'Tinga Cruiser:
K'Tinga Canon Inconsistencies:
*IT IS NOT A K'TINGA - It's a D7: (Thank you Tain for the excellent image)
-Aft section is entirely the wrong shape.
-Impulse engines are the wrong shape and location: current STO (D7), Canon K'Tinga.
-Due to above, The Aft Torp Launcher is missing.
-Reactor buldge on the belly is missing (k't'inga feature, not present in D7)
-Head is that of a D7: no bow flattening, bridge tower is level with bridge dome like a D7, should be taller.
-the dome shaped neck bubble immediately behind the head where the officer's mess/lounge is located is missing.
-Only two window rows in STO model, as per D7, Canon K'Tinga has 4 on head, 2 on brim, 2 on head itself.


Tier 4:

Ki'Tang BoP:
Ki'Tang BoP Canon Inconsistencies:
*This is an ENT series-based model, sharing much of the design philosophy of the Tier2. It could at least be more 'TMP/TNG' like like it's predecessor, the B'Rel.
*Why is this ship not the K'Vort, a well known heavy attack ship?

Tier 5:

Hegh'Ta BoP:
Hegh'Ta BoP Canon Inconsistencies:
*This is an ENT series-based model, sharing much of the design philosophy of the Tier2. It could at least be more 'TMP/TNG' like like it's actual predecessor, the B'Rel.
*Why is this ship not the K'Vort, a well known heavy attack ship?


Romulan:

Romulan BoP:
Canon Inconsistencies:
*Model used is that of the Romulan warship seen in Enterprise. It doesn't fit all that well in STO.

Mogai Escort:
Canon Inconsistencies:
*It's name: It's most commonly known as the Valdore-Type, or the Norexan-Class
*Possible Scaling issue. (not confirmed)

D'Deridex Warbird:
Canon Inconsistencies:
*Possibly underscaled. It is supposed to be (at least) one KILOMETER long, larger than even a Galaxy Class. (available data varies from 1.042km to 1.353km)


Miscellaneoust:
Doomsday Machine:
Canon inconsistencies:
*STO model has much rougher design, as opposed to TOS (remastered).
