I hate the Venture but if people want another Galaxy variant, let them have it. It doesn't offend me if others fly around in a ship I find to be an ugly repackage. But why NOT make tier 5 Akiras, sov refits, and ambassadors because some hate those? Make products because players want them, don't NOT make them because others don't. If you don't like something, don't buy it, but fighting the implementation of something other players want is childish, impedes variety, and suppresses growth.
As I said above, Cryptic can only make product that CBS approves. But at the same time they also have a Tier strategy they want to adhere to. Some people might not like the Tier structure but it does server a purpose both as incentive to keep playing and as a reward system. It is just the way it is.
