heck they only rebuilt it it to pamper kirk and even then it was no match for the excelsior in terms of technology heck it was not for Scotty maybe the Transwarp drive had actually worked by TNG there was no connies left they was obsolete something the fan base can't seem to accept heck even the Miranda and Excelsiors was nothing more then glorified workhorses they was not the backbone of the fleet mere expendable ships

People used the argument but admirals used the excelsior so it must be good still .... did it ever occure to you people that the reason admirals used the excelsior class was that all the actual tech ship was to busy to waste ferrying flag officers around other then the Lakota not a single Excelsior had gotten a full upgrade and I suspect that it was not Starfleet's policy to introduce such a radical upgrade to such a old ship Vice Admiral Layton most likely authorized the upgrade and never bothered to consult anyone about it the Defiant Crew seemed surprised about the upgrades
Dude, we have punctuation marks for a reason.

That aside, the people here like their classic ships. My feelings on that are irrelevant; I will not begrudge a guy his free time. If he wants to putt around in a classic ship, so be it. The Oddessy and Vesta has shown that Cryptic will add 25th Century ships (for some money of course ) and cater to the "modern" ship fans, while at the same time catering to the classic ship people.

Me? I really want those weapon belts that the alternate Enterpirse-D crew wore on Yesterday's Enterprise (the officer and enlisted versions).
Most JJ Trek hate = IDIC fail.
Most who don't like the new Star Trek either didn't like TOS, don't remember TOS, or didn't see TOS
