Possably one of the most historic figures alive today in regards to space travel has sadly left us today. RIP Neil...

I wonder if the next Cryptic ship class added to the game could be called the Armstrong class as a tribute to him.

Sad day for the world.


And I agree, be great if Cryptic could do somekind of Tribute. Like a ship named after him, an Apollo pet or Trophy.

I think an Armstrong class would be a wonderful tribute for one of humanity's greatest explorers. Make it so, Cryptic!

This character is why I don't play my Romulan any more. Tovan Khev is NOT my BFF! Get him off my bridge!

Or perhaps an NPC ship in orbit around Earth SpaceDock called the USS Armstrong (Luna class ofcourse!)

Just last week I was trying to get a 1/6 Neil Armstrong after seeing some pics of it when someone mentioned wanting to use it as The Impossible Astronaut with a new 11th Dr. Who figure. I got outbid on ebay and now I see someone posting one for $400 I wish I had won last week

I remember watching the landing while staying up late and eating my cake and ice cream after my birthday party as a youngster, it was the best thing ever Thank you for that memory Neil, and Godspeed.



some pics of the figure

Yeah, this would be relatively simple to do, as well. I second this motion.

I like the idea someone posted of making a map on the moon at the landing site. Also the idea of a Armstrong class ship has alot appeal but I am not as keen on seeing a U.S.S. Armstrong in orbit as it should be out exploring the great unknownnot maintaining orbitseems like it would take away from the legacy to me.
I suppose the only issue with the map would be if there is a lunar colony on the moon in which case make the whole colony map and place a statue on the site.
Peace be with you Mr. Armstrong

They should make a moon map with the landing side of Apollo 11 and a new memorial plague at Starfleet academy .

(Or a pig)
