I suggested this during beta, and I'm sure it has come up several times since then. Personally, I don't care as much about my crew, but I would love to have custom models of all of my ships made.

However, if merchandising for STO proceeds in typical Cryptic fashion, then we're not going to see anything happen with it. And I think that's a shame, because it could pull in a lot of money for Cryptic/Atari. Even if something like the 3-D printing is prohibitively expensive, they could do custom shirts with our ships and/or crew on them, or custom mouse pads, custom mugs, etc. etc. I don't know about you, but I'd get a bunch of custom shirts if I could have my ships on a shirt.
