. If they were true Star Trek fans they'd accept that the time of the Constitution is over. It's like the battleships. They had a time and a place as master of the oceans and seas. Now that era has passed. As has the era of the Constitution. A legendary ship in a league of it's own, the Constitution and it's modernised (23rd century) refit were without doubt symbolic of the Federation. However that has now passed. As has the time of the Excelsior and the Galaxy. And the era of the Sovereign is waning too, unfortunately for me as I command one.
It is just a game and in games anything is theoretically possible but it's a game with rich lore and a timeline which dictates that the Constitution class is centuries old. There have never been any frontline warships that are over a century old. Miranda's were used in the Battle of Wolf 359 and during the Dominion War but they weren't true frontline combat vessels, they were support vessels which were directed to engage enemy vessels. I was less than impressed when they (Cryptic) brought the NX in but I've accepted it as it's a T1 not a T5. As beautiful as the class may be, it's days as a frontline warship facing off against Borg and Undine are just not meant to be. It's already in game as a T2. Let it go.
I appreciate your point of view, I really do. But saying that people like me are full of... scat? No carnivores leave scat. How about shi... no only omnivores leave that and this post is not worth that many infractions. Ah that's it droppings. Herbivores leave droppings or in this case cow droppings. Well it gets my hackles up.
Thank goodness the Exeter has the Connie's distinctive anachronistic profile. Now all old TOSsers like me need is a TMP interior to use on it.
Call me out of place in this modern world but I like old things. Like the 1956 F100 I am working on modernizing in such a way that you can't tell by looking at it, or that old out of date FZR600 I used to ride that kept up with much newer bikes in the corners, even my 1940s apartment which has more electrical outlets in each square foot of it's brick walls than many of the homes that were made in the 1990s.
Yup got me the first +1 ship in the game with my pre-order, (read T1 TOS Constitution). That plus an out of date Miranda or an anachronistically profiled Exeter and a 100 year old T5 Excelsior to gall up the gears of the "true purists" is good enough for me.
So I did let it go already, but then folk gotta come along and offended my sensibilities by suggesting I'm full of cow droppings and I write silliness like this in response. How about you all relax a little yourselves? Continuity in this game is already a joke. Me streaking ESD in my TOS uniforms should be a graphic reminder of that fact. Then again the fact that every sign that denotes "Bank" in ESD is done in
Star Trek BT
, (now called Horizon), font should be a good reminder when I am away as well.
