Flexiflo - I went all TOS including the old uniforms, old weapons, flew a constitution class... etc. I found that if you're smart about your tactics you can continue using the original constitution class all through the Lieutenant Commander rank & into the early Commander levels as well, and use the movie era constitution all through Commander but somewhere in the early Captain levels it's just not possible to remain effective in combat even with the tier 2 (i.e. movie era) ship.

Those old boats will take you far but there is a reason why the Federation comes out with bigger better vessels every few years. You can't really take those ships into end game stuff... however I still wear my TOS uniform proudly and pack old blue phasers on my admiral rank cruiser.
