In the end, ship hulls are just a fancy bling bling we want to show off to others. And the more options we have is all the more work/bug fixing that Cryptic probably does not always have time to invest in. Atleast we have a Star Trek game to enjoy. I was trying to get the old Taldren 'StarFleet Command' games to work for my Trek fix. Nice to see Cryptic UI came out a bit simular to that great classic.
I am in agreement with you. Unfortunatly, the writer of the story "The First Duty" somehow managed to get copyrights to the character Nicholas Loncardo. How that happened is ludicrist. The way I see it, if you make a ship or character in the Star Trek Universe, and it makes it into print or on screen, then it becomes a part of the franchise, and falls under the property rights of the Star Trek name. The only real concession I would give, is credit for the origin of said character or design, and look for imput as to character motivation.
