Hopefully once the sale of Cryptic has been completed and CapnLogan has been given the permission and funds to create that slave army of modelers he's always wanted, then maybe we'll start to see the ship designs of the other races start mixing in to the tiers
Heck, the KDF needs both a bunch more ships and a bunch of ships that can't cloak. Will make the cloak on Klingon ships a little more special, especially if they get that OPvP territory control system worked out
I'm still not convinced that the level of detail is entirely the problem.
I've also got some screenshots that clearly show that the details are so good it could easily pass as a player ship:
so it seems there is something else preventing them from including them into the player fleet, perhaps some problems with the conversion process...
