Why Cryptic would do it:
1) No new ships need to be made so no work for them
2) New item in latinum store, which many people have been looking for (the first new items in 2+ years were added last month with Winter Event)
3) Contributes to reducing energy credit inflation (since the most common method of latinum is dabo, from EC)
4) Satisfies TOS fans because they get to fly a "T5 Connie"
5) Satisfies everyone else because it's not *really* a T5 Connie
And then us old schoolers can never have money again. That's a terrible idea.
The Somraw, K'tinga, D'Kyr, D7, Kumari, Xindi carrier, Xindi escort, and the T'Varo are all older than the Constitution Refit and yet they are tier 5. The Constellation is made up primarily of Connie refit parts and it is tier 5, there is no logical reason whatsoever for the no tier 5/6 connie rule.
