I support this ship scaling and If the ships and stations are all to scare the universe would feel bigger. and IF you lowered the space junk in Galaxy maps, you should be able to make the zones 4 times as large.

Cryptic this game NEEDS true scale to get that Star Trek feeling.

Scaring the Universe is only going to get you trouble! LOL!

Although they might be able to optimize things a bit, the "sector-ization" of the maps is necessary to reduce lag/load on the servers. This is the reason that ships and planets are a lot smaller than they should be.

Also, I'm sure that you noticed that the bridges and hallways on the ships are much larger than they should be. This is because they are trying to keep the "player camera/view" inside the walls so you don't see outside the "set".

In the info, why are a lot of ships listed as "[]" in the ship's type? Have they not added these into the game?

What are the largest ships? I thought the Bortas Heavy Cruiser was large but it is always dwarfed next to other ships, even shuttles and fighters. Doesn't make sense.
biggest ingame playable ship is likely the vo'quv. it would dwarf ds9, let alone a deridex.

two that are absurdly out of scale are the aquarius and oddessy.
especially when in another intermediate sized ship parked between two...
Cryptic.
Figure out and address the players path of least resistance to reward. this one thing is THE consistent factor undermining all your efforts. be that crafting, raids or starbase projects.

Huh? What are you talking about? Oh... Is your subspace relay down? You should have your engineer fix it because you're responding to conversation that finished over a month ago.

I was wondering how the new Avenger sizes up to the others.

Once again you people left out the Ambassador Class Support Cruiser. It is slightly smaller than the galaxy class, and deserves a place.

Yeah a comparison chart from 2011 leaves out a ship that was introduced into the game in 2013.

What a shock.
