They're just superficial uses of old designs on newly constructed ships. Think "New Mustang" or "New VW Bug". New car, classic shape.
And whats a modern day warship built from

There has got to be some way Cryptic can add these ships to please the old timers but make them useful. Maybe having to buy the classic NX for example for a series of time travel missions back to Archer's time just to kind of give everyone what they want. Once those missions are complete, let them use it just like any other ship they have already purchased. This would definitely require the limit on how many ships you can own to be removed.

Not from Duranium or any of the other fun stuff starships are built from.

There already is. It's in the Timeline. It's in the book. And Leviathan already posted about it. The "skin" of the ship is a classic/retro skin. The rest of the ship is an up to date ship. It's the entry in the timeline that talks about MODULAR ship design that the starfleet corps of engineers came up with. It's the way all ships now have a framework that captains now equip. The framework is the same. The captain makes the choices. All up to date and modern and 25th century choices. The ship's skin, or appearance, can be up to date (like the Nomad) or retro (like the Constitution).

But the ship is still a modern 25th century ship.

This already is in place. Is already working. There's no need to create any more ideas on how to make this possible since it's already possible.

Why not play Legacy instead :p

I am sorry to be so mean, but get real for a second. The current STO world has enough 'Plot-Holes' with the Classic-Connie or even the Refit Connie...

It doesent feel right, thats all.

just because a ship was seen in the 22nd century doesn't mean it didn't just come off the assembly line, it just means it's a good design that works

why fix what isn't broken

All equally vaild, just problematic to resolve.

Personally, I find some of the ship designs do not feel right, but my feeling right should not dictate how others should feel.

Some people love the Fleet Escorts. I personally find them less than aesthetically appealing.

Immersion? Again, one person's definition of immersion is not another's.

Why not have options?

There is this whole IDIC thing in Star Trek. I lean towards options and diversity.
This is more to do with everyone wants this to be cannon. Bringing the refit connie back was a long shot but hey if cryptic decided to give ppl NX tier 5s and Excelsiors I wouldnt complain, Id prefer it not to happen but heck if it makes ppl happy in the game then deep down im up for it.
