The Regent.

I cant stand the look of it. Its too flat, and it look very fore-heavy from the side with the nacelle pylons slanted forward. And from the top it looks like a turkey ready to be roasted... Only good part about the ship are the nacelles... but overall the default stock sovereign is much much better.

And the Jupiter-class... is just... ugly.

Actually that would be each and every non-canon ship in there. No, not just because I'd wish for a game that really feels and looks like Star Trek but all of those "new" ships just look to me as if the designer just didn't get the hold of the basic design principle of the IP. They all look so out of place/wannabe cool, I don't know. I especially hate the caitian ships - if the DEVs had to invent some completely new ship design why did they just copy battlestar galactica instead of doing some original work? Granted, we never really saw any caitians at all. But the design they choose do not reflect the image I got from the rare sources we had. At all.

it's not like the canon ships are any better. The Galaxy is the worst design in the whole franchise.

Keeping in mind that this is all about individual opinion....


I don't like the Luna class. Not one bit.

That pod attached to the saucer looks out of place, and viewing that ship from behind it reminds of one of those dogs that's dragging itself around the carpet! Or a slug.

Sorry - great abilities, functions well in use, but I just hate the look of the thing.

Wrong - that distinction goes to the DS9 kitbashes.

Agreed on the Pod, but not on the Luna as a whole. If you remove the Pod (you can in the customizer), it's one of the best-looking SVs. Not that it's such a hard thing to achieve, considering SVs is where ugly Ships congregate (the Nova isn't ugly, but it's too damn small).

The Galaxy looks good, he just trollan'. On the other hand, the Constitution, Excelsior, Excalibur,... all look pretty bad. Not Olympic/Hope/Horizon-class bad, but still bad.

Galaxy is okay, but I'd take the Connie and Excelsior over it any day of the week. NX-class is my favorite.

has anyone mentioned IT yet? IT was a galaxy skin iirc, and was removed from STo for crimes against civilization.

I dont remember what it was actually called, but everyone called it the "legoprise"

I will try to find a a pic.

edit- http://www.stowiki.org/Exploration_Cruiser way down the bottom in notes, although, that does not accurately show the full injustice just a taste, sorry only one I could find on a quick google search
