You guys are always talking about making the game better for n00bs. I think one nice way of doing this a bit would be...

1) When you get to the part where you first see your ship go to a ship customization screen first.

2) Make two more FREE ships and give players a choice. I think the Oberth should be free (maybe give a c-store alternative with an ability) and then an escort (perhaps a Maquis style raider, or anything).


Really, one ship being at tier 1 (or 0 to the devs) gets really boring. I've made a ton of characters. Each time it's that boring Miranda.

I kind of agree with this. There are other starter ships, the Constitution and the NX-01, but you have to buy them from the c-store. It would be nice for noobs to get more of a choice. And I'd love to have the Ju'day Class.

You have my full support.

I support this, but I wouldn't get your hopes up.

It wouldn't be an issue if the starting rank wasn't interminably long.

The Connie and NX are kind of out of this time and odd. Obvious C-Store choice. I would love to have a light science and light escort ship that are more modern, at least to the connie refit like the Oberth is (and the Oberth was still in wide use by DS9 and VOY).

surprisingly - geko and I were talking about this very thing today. I'd like to see more variety at all tiers and if I can get the ship art time out of CapnLogan - i'd like to see both the KDF and FEDs have more choices as they level up.

One idea we were talking about (brainstorming) was that if we did add some new ships at lower tiers, that we could put their unique powers on a console so that even after you leveled out of the ship, you could at least take the console with you and possibly use the ability on another similar ship. Sounded like a cool idea.

Oberth is a perfect candidate for a Light Science vessel!!! I'm glad it's in game because I'm all about diversity, (Except for Pakleds, I wish they'd go back to the caves they crawled out of) but I couldn't help but thinking; it needs to be a Science Vessel, but tier 2 seems too high for it! That would be amazing to have light Science and Escort!

I have to agree with this. It seems like a bad idea to have people buy something right from the onset. It sets a bad tone for what their game play might be like.

agreed with this. if anything, that early grind would be made more entertaining by having a decent selection to choose from.
