I am puzzling, why do they refuse to change this ship. Is it laziness, incompetence or do you think they just hate the Galaxy Class?

I just don't get it, there are more than enough people wanting this ship to be more like in the shows and the devs are just laughing and saying that is is ok as it is?
(which is simply not true.)

I really want to understand their motives.

Why on earth they decided that Miniguns, Blast Assault Rifles, Plasma Grenades and all that stuff had to be in this game is anyones guess but it may be just a result of the limited possibliites the DEVs had to work with. Who knows...
I think they did what they always do, they just add things they think are "cool".
They don't care about what would be appropriate to Star Trek, they just add what they like.
The devs of STO treat Star Trek as if it where there own creation, i think CBS or whoever has the rights on Star Trek should keep an rigorous eye on this game.
Other francises are much better "protected" just think about Lord of the Rings. There are actually a lot of people that boycott Peter Jacksons movies. What would those people do if they where Star trek fans and had to see what Cryptic has done to "their" Star Trek?

Live long and prosper.
