As for the age of Connies ...lets just say D'Kyr and have done with it. But thats all a bit academic, Cryptic and CBS have said no, we can't have one.

But, the TOS set I would bet is one of the best selling items in the C-Store... go figure... I would have prefered that we have multiple era's to play in, but, that would be unrealistic, so I play a time travelling character, who is allowed to indulge his uniform choice, due to the current uniform code, and is allowed to customise his bridge to look like a connie to ease his command style into 2409...

Back on to topic, I would love communicators and Tricorders for the TOS kit I already have and new beam up animation to support the new communicators

It is the BEST Rare pistol (blue) in the game with the TOS Phaser from the same mission (Night of the Comet) being the second best. I use that combo for Borg STFs (my tac is specced into pistols) Anti-Proton Pistols are only better by a couple of DPS. If you want to RP TOS or just like the sounds/looks of the weapons, they are well worth it.

Look at the NX for a second it's a reproduction. old school looks with up to date tech. Why not do the

same for the Connie? I would love to have the NX as a VA ship i love the looks of it and by god if i

have to fly around seeing ships covered in Borg crap or looking like Vegas crapped neon all over it i

should be able to spend an insane amount of particle traces and ec to refit my NX to fit my captains

lvl. the same should be done for the Connie even the Miranda we did see them defending DS 9.

or if nothing esle let us make a craftable unlimited use holo emitter that can give use the appearance of the ships we love based on class of course NX for escorts Connie for cruisers etc.

If a T5, T6 ect TOS Connie was on the C-Store for CP I'd buy it in a hear beat. I'm an old time Star Trek fan and I grew up watching the Original Series as a Kid.

IF anything I wish they would just put the option for the ship model on my end to look like a TOS Connie. I'd be happy with that.

I was in my Connie up until Captain, just because I didn't want to command anything else. I tried again at VA and it was not pretty. For us old farts it is not too much to ask for. It would greatly enhance my game play as well as others I'm sure.

I hear you! It is also fun when you do a PvP match with all conies (and I don't even like PvP) There is no reason that a TOS ship with modern shield/engines/equipment should not be a force to be reckoned with. I really feel that if we are using older ships we just need a good Chief Engineer to “hold it together” with a good old “Aye. I'm workin' on 'em”

What happend to rseduce (if you can't) then REUSE before you recycle..

Miranda inspired TOS counter part- http://spyrou77.files.wordpress.com/...miniorthos.jpg
Another TOS ship- http://img.trekmovie.com/images/merc...d3/truth1n.jpg
Alternate Klingon D7- http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/me...hip-sketch.jpg

I suppose you could sneak in one or two alien ships from ENT too (like Andorian, Vulcan ships)
You could also include stand alone Vulcan, Tellarite, Andorian, Gorn and Orion factions... you could even sneak in Cardassians if you take some novels/comics of TOS into account

But think of it, a classic Trek server with weird and wonderful encounters and classic battles with old foes.

Personally I'd be willing to make the sacrifice of not having my Liberated Borg main Character and making him completely human. That said you could still include the numerous "Alien" races that players have made. The only reason we didn't see a lot of aliens in TOS was due to budget and the make up/special effect limitations of the day, but as we see in TOS Animated series, with M'ress and Arex, there are species in Starfleet and the Federation that you didn't see in the live action show.

... I geek out when ever I think about the possibility
Not a bad idea but a TOS/TMP server would mean a lot of work for the Dev's they would have to revamp some of the Space stations and change most of the missions to reflect the time line. when Cryptic has enough staff that they can have a dedicated team, that would not take Dev's away from the main part of the game. I would be all for this idea could make the game fun again

Hmm, a Bonaventure Class might be nice as an alternate TOS skin on the Fleet Escort...

I know!! We have been trying to do some Fleet storyline foundry work where we rescue Captains from the past (moments before tier demise) and bring them to the 25th century to help in the war efforts. It makes sense that we would have lots of TOS stuff lying around LOL And back in those days we had phasers that would stun a grown man with only one shot

Unless the TOS ship appeared in the TNG time the will not even think of it and I have yet to see a peace a paper saying it is CBS saying NO. Until Cryptic names the people how said NO then there just using it as stone wall tactic.
