Well I for one would like to see a T5 version of the Exeter/Excalibur.

Its a cool 25th Century reinterpretation of the classic Constitution Class. Furthmore the Excalibur is the ship on the front of the damned box for the game not to mention the header for the steam store page.



As for the TOS Connie and the NX, I still have fun kitting them out with endgame gear and going into Normal STF's :p so I'm already content with those as is haha!

I contacted CBS, and here's what they said:

Thank your for contacting us. All Star Trek licensing questions should be directed to the CBS Consumer Products website.
That website has no contact information about inquiries. It's as if they don't want to be contacted other than applying to be a licensee.

Alien races don't have to follow that logic. If the ship design works perfectly fine, then why replace it? All that is needed is to utilize the latest technology in its construction. Therefore Starfleet ship designs from 200 years ago would make sense for a Lieutenant to operate while a Tier 5 version piloted by a Vice Admiral doesn't. It also makes sense why Romulan ship designs can be operated at Tier 1 and Tier 5. The Tier 1 Romulan ship is from 200 years ago while the Tier 5 ship was built recently using recent shipyard technologies. So while the design is the same, all the technology in the Tier 5 Romulan ship is completely different.

Making Tier 5 versions of the Constitution and NX would be like putting a V8 engine in a Model T. It might go faster than an original Model T, but it would not go faster than any Car that was designed with the V8 engine in mind.
You seem to be confusing capitalist values with human values here, but your point is interesting. Realistically I think alien ships didn't change much because it is cheaper to reuse the same models. I would imagine, If we had another series there would be greater variety.

I know the t5 excelcior has 4 forward weapon. But I think the connie should only have 3. But even the stats of the shield and hull don't need to change too much. But the Boff layout is just ridiculous. I have a borged out connie and I still fly it sometimes. But one tactical slot is insufficient. It takes too long to kill anything.

I agree with this.

I understand not wanting a fleet version of the Connie, NX, or Miranda. But the Exeter is my favorite looking ship and fully modern in the game universe.

The Constitution is not dead, be happy...the USS Kittyprize still lives on and is making a name for itself! You can search the Skill Planner section for ship builds (Federation/Tactical/Constitution Cruiser) or I have also added the link to our federation shipyards section, look for my new thread, "What Cats use =^.^=

I use this build to take on all none Elite level missions and STF's successfully, nor have I been destroyed in over a month.

It takes a professional Caitian to make the magic happen!

How about a fleet version of the Tuffli class freighter? anyway, a fleet version of the Miranda or Constitution, or NX classes is just polishing a turd. That's why they are set up in game for people who are levels 1 to 10, good for newbies, bad for anything more. Sure a fleet version would have higher stats but they'd still be limited to 2 weapon slots so not much firepower and the new stats would be really poor compaired to other fleet ships. May as well just dig out your old Miranda if you still have it or pick up the other two from the c shop for 500 zen and shove some fleet equipment on it.

THEN FLY HER APART!

Sorry. Had to say that.
