Would this be so bad? Would the player helming said spec sized ships not have the correct view point on their screen? Or is there an already existing limitation in the coding for camera scroll in/out view?

I really would not complain as long as my vantage point was not compromised, and to be selfish about it, I really couldn't care less that another person feels "small" in their escort or shuttle. They are supposed to be small. I really hope this decision was because there was an outcry early on about size, or a limitation in camera view points, and not a presumed future complaint by players.

I want to feel large in a cruiser, and I want to feel small in an escort. Without these factors it's very hard to feel immersed in the gameplay when all you ever do is notice how small/how big you are depending on the ship. Not that I expect the scales to ever change at this point, but it needs to be said. I don't want to be one of THOSE people that likes to state things like they know it's a fact, but uh, I guarantee that most people paying up for this game would have the same opinion as I in regards to the scaling issue because we're all ST nerds, so if there isn't any limits in the way, I say make the paying playerbase happy if it's not too much trouble. At the very least, if it's easy enough, give us a testing run of new scales on tribble for awhile and see how it goes there.
