No but its a fed ship and so has fed markings but because you feel they should be a option you think that is the way it should be this is star trek not your private space game and the ufp ships have the stripe get over it. If you don't want to play a star trek game go play wow. next ull want to paint em pink with a big bow. and i love the lets try to make it a personal thing nuff said refers to the quote above my comment, its canon ist the way the ships are thats the way the ships have always been NUFF SAID !!!

This is kinda an odd request seeing how its very canon and they were requested as a part of general ship improvements.

If from a developers perspective its easy to change then go ahead and add the option, if it would require some serious work though I don't see it being worth it.

I'd much rather see something non-canon removed - namely the darned annoying impulse engine 'glow' and 'vapour trails'.

They've never been in any version of Star Trek - or Star Wars, or any other major sci-fi franchise, for that matter! Certainly, they look totally out of place here - it'd be so easy to just add an 'off' option, so I'd really welcome such a move.

The stripes are part of the markings of a Federation ship, yes, but the point is that they should be customizable to match your ship design. Colors and designs on ships are not a part of any canon, nor are many of the variant parts, nor are any weapons aside from phasers, and so on. If they are going to make these customizable and encourage doing so, then so too should they make the stripes (in color at least). As they are, they are too thick, too bright, and too red, especially in contrast with some of the darker hull choices.

The Defiant class already has the solution implemented. The stripes are not optional, but they are attached to one of the color selections and can be modified to fit seamlessly into what other design selections you may have, including grey to make them meld into your hull if you like (although the golden chevrons will always stay golden). It wouldn't be very hard to implement this with the rest of the ships. Take a look at it in-game.
