alternatively, just add it to the existing NX class like how the teir 3 excelsior gets retrofitted to teir 5. but to digress, similar posts have been made about it. why they fail to gain traction i have utterly no idea.
I'm guessing they would have to go through Doug Drexler to get the rights to the NX refit, as it is his baby and not specifically CBS. I'm not sure on it, but I do know the refit was designed long after the show was over.
I doubt it would make it to T5. If it did it would pis the constitution people off hard core (then again that would be prety amusing).
But I could see it hitting tier 2 or 3.
And technicaly an akita IS a 24th century refit.
No the Akira is a completely original ship that shares similar geometry to the NX.
Refit means they got the old ships and fitted new things in/on them.
By your logic the Galaxy is a refit of the Ambassador.
I was once DKnight1000, apparently I had taken my own name so now I'm DKnight0001. If I ask you a question it is not an insult but a genuine attempt to understand why. When I insult you I won't be discreet about it, I will be precise and to the point stupid.
