Screw tier 5+1, I would be happy with pure tier 5. Skins would be OG Conni, any of the tier 2 cruisers and the Exeter Class (of course if you own them). Cryptic, come on, its my birthday in a week, throw me a bone!
This almost sounds like a "science hybrid" tactical cruiser. Possibly too OP...

My thoughts for a Tier 5 Connie are to go "pure science" - 3-3 weapons loadout, base off the RSSV's loadout/boffs but go LtCmdr Tac instead of Lt/Ens Tac.

Many people complain that the Connie really shouldn't be a cruiser alongside the Galaxys and Oddesseys. Fine. Also, Roddenberry wanted the TOS Enterprise to be more of an exploration (science) ship that just happened to fight fairly well. Hence the shift of a Connie-Retro from Cruiser to Science.

That, and "when" the NX-Enterprise (Utopia class?) gets the tier 5 treatment, I'd slot it as an escort, the original hull is about the same size as Defiant, IIRC, and the NX could be slotted as a "science secondary" - 4 Tac 3 Sci 2 Eng consoles, Cmdr + Lt Cmdr Tac, Lt Cmdr Sci, Lt Eng. to reflect NX's original "exploration" role...

This has an additional effect of giving both an "old school" (aka 22nd century) and "newer school" (aka 23rd century) Tier 5 representative in each class (all retrofits). NX and Defiant (Ent and DS9) escorts, Connie and Intrepid (TOS and Voy) science vessels, Excelsior and Galaxy (TMP and TNG) as cruisers.
Yes, I'm going here. Iconic / "hero" ships, I'm talking Galaxy/Defiant/Intrepid here you TNG-era fans, get a T6 version, then ALL the hero ships (Connie, Miranda, NX, etc.) need one too. I'm a ToS fan, and proud of it. This is a themepark, let me enjoy my ride or none of us deserve one...

I don't agree with the Constitution Class being a tier 5 ship. It just doesn't make since because it has a 5th of the hull strength of the modern cruisers and couldn't last in battle with them. I think this might be a better idea: make new missions where it requires using your smaller lower tier ships just like there were missions requiring shuttle use versus ship usage. I think people want to be able to use alot of those old ships, maybe even do battle with them.

Okay *sigh*. How bout this? Three servers. Main. TNG-era only, and TOS-era only. Ship skins, uniforms, all of it. Make limited sizes/classes for TNG/TOS servers. I for one might never leave the TOS era. (I'm old) LOL. WSY all?
