Okay -- I know this has been beat to DEATH. But I had an idea while running up my Engineer on tribble.

People are asking for a T-5 connie and the powers that be are against it for a variety of reasons.

People are asking for more skins/variants for the Excelsior.

How about a compromise?

Make the Cruiser Refit costume a costume for the Excelsior as well. It's basically an advanced looking connie without BEING a connie. It's an awesome-looking ship for a such a short lived level.

There's precedent for a lower tier ship looking just like a max-level ship. T3 Excelsior looks just like the T5, T4 Venture looks just like the Galaxy Retrofit with the Venture skin and the T4 Defiant looks just like the Retrofit Defiant. So the whole "PvPers would be confused" idea of a ship needs to look like the tier it's in is already nonsense.

I think this will go a long way to solving two problems (grievances) with almost no real work (no idea how long or how much work it takes to hook up a ship costume).

What do all of you think?
