Hi there, I hope this is the right subforum for a ship request.

Short story: I've got this game the moment it went F2P. Because I grew up watching the original Star Trek and really love retro-scifi I got all the TOS-related content in STO like uniforms, bridges and ships. I am currently playing at level 44 and even though I've equipped my TOS Connie with the best items I could find on the exchange it's hard to fight against Cardassian ships with it. My ship did a good job all through the Klingon and Romulan campaigns.

So there's my request: Please, please make a TOS Constitution Retrofit to match level 40+. I know it is a small ship compared to the large cruisers but so is the Prometheus and the Intrepid - which actually have a refit-version. You could even give the Connie similar stats as for the Prometheus or Intrepid. Or do a TOS Connie ship-costume for the Excelsior Retrofit.

I am sure a lot of players would appreciate that because it's the most well known starship in science fiction history. And yeah, it's James T. freakin' Kirk's vessel, so it deserves a retrofit imo. I would throw my money at the screen for it.

Thanks.

I'd like a Constitution Class Refit (i.e. 1701-A) for level 50, with retrofit abilities. Based on it's size in game, it's be cool if it had an escort's turn rate at level 50.

I love the canon ships (from the series, not equipped with Cannons) but straight up, your in a Tier 1 ship doing Tier 4 content. Your ship just won't cut it.

Infact if you replayed the Klingon missions in that ship, you'd be struggling.

For a Constitution refit refit (Tier 2 has the Constitution (1701A) refit btw).

I'm seeing it as a Halfway point between a Cruiser and an Escort, the problem is they got a ship to do that the Excelsior. And the Galor kinda fills that role too.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but I don't see the Constitution class being in the game at Tier 5.

ATM I think we all have our fingers crossed for a Tier 5 Akira, (Yes my personal favourite, but I doubt I'm alone)

While these are valid points, maybe it would be comfortable for a lot of people to have the ability to upgrade their "old ships" instead of getting a new one. So far, it's like playing until you gained 10 level, get a new ship and throw the "old one" - which you had just for a week - away to keep up. that solution would fix the issue with not having a T5 Akira and a 1701-A. I mean, why not doing this? Enemy ships in the campaigns level as well. If you play "night of the comet" in level 50 you gotta battle a level 50 23rd century D7 klingon ship.

Quite simply it's for Silhouette recognition, in PVP having to know every ship at every level and every part combo is already a daunting task.

And knowing the difference in profile between a Star Cruiser, an Assualt Cruiser, a Dreadnought, a Galaxy Retro, Excelsior, Galor, Vulcan Sci, and Nebula, can really help. That's just the T5 Cruisers. I think I may have missed some. I included the Sci orientated Psuedo Cruisers because they can function well as Cruisers in PVP. Maybe some in more of a fleet Support role but you get the idea.

OH and I forgot the new Oddessy and the C-Store variant coming.

I can totally see this message spammed across the server sometime this summer:

Congratulations! Anazonda has just opened an Elite Constitution Class Retrofit!

Those aren't science based pseudo cruisers. Those are actual science ships. The D'Kyr is far closer to an Intrepid in terms of stats than anything in the cruiser class. And while the Nebula turns like a tub, it's got all the science ship characteristics that a science ship has (target subsystem beam skills, the science boost, the 3/3 weapons loadout). They're not really like cruisers at all and to get the most use out of them, especially in PvP, you need to equip them like a science ship.

I keep saying this and Ill say it again, it would be fine to use your T1 ship as it is now, no new weapons, no new console upgrades, no more base HP

AS LONG AS, you could use the higher ranks of your Bridge Officer Skills. In that way, the T1/T2/T2.5 Constitution Class Starship in the game would be able to, with much difficulty, play T4 and T5 content.
Having the ability to use Commander and Lieutenant commander abilities would go a long way in allowing people to use their favorite old ships without breaking the game! As the higher Tier ships have more base HP, more weapon slots, more console upgrades and better passive bonuses.
