# 1 TOS USS Enterprise Suggestion
07-16-2010, 01:43 PM
This morning I had an idea to make the C-Store purchase of the original series USS Enterprise more palatable, considering the hefty 800 CP cost. This thread isn't to debate whether the price should be lowered, but to add incentive to the purchase of a Tier 1 vessel with a $10 price tag.

My suggestion would be renaming the C-Store item to "Original Series Bundle" or something similar, and the purchase would include;

1) The Original Series USS Enterprise.
2) The Original Series Uniforms.
3) *New* Original Series Constitution-class Bridge, as seen in the TV show.

As a bundle, it will give people access to all of the Original Series goodies at an acceptable $10 price tag, allowing people not only to dress in the original series uniforms but also have access to the original series Constitution class with the bridge from the TV series to match! With the coming bridge interiors, I believe this is a unique opportunity!

I would be happy with a TOS constitution class bridge...
I would also go for a TOS constitution class interior as well.
That would be money well-spent...

What do you think?

Dream on... it'll never happen.

The bridge would require programming time, which I am sure has now become extremely limited. There is no incentive for the uniforms and ship to be bundled, as most people already have one or the other already.

I would rather see more content... wouldn't you?

I have no problem with dreaming, and I realize this may never come to pass. It's an idea I felt I'd share, no need to try and crush my hopes!

The Bridge would require programming time, and I do want to see more content -- how is the TOS Bridge not new content, when it's currently not in the game? Never-the-less, the GMs and Developers who post on these boards have informed us time-and-time again that revenue from the C-Store goes towards creating more content. This idea is to boost sales in mind, and I feel more people would purchase the USS Enterprise if it included something more than just a Tier1 ship, such as the original series bridge and the uniforms.

CBS is VERY strict on what Cryptic is doing with this game
Thanks for the info, I wasn't aware that the USS Enterprise was originally slated to come with the original bridge. Do you have any references concerning CBS stopping Cryptic from producing LCARs and the USS Enterprise bridge? I would like to see them. I am not so certain about the LCARs, I have a bridge on my DSSV that has a hybrid of the crappy Cryptic-styled "LCARS" wannabe and actual LCARS, but I admit that most of the panels are the knock-off brand, not the real thing. If you're interested, I'll post some pictures.
