I think I had seen where a dev said they considered the shuttle pod but decided that because it didn't have warp capability in the show, it wouldn't make sense to have it warp around the galaxy. I could be wrong though.
Regardless, I am on board with these ideas. Most especially an NX interior with a choice between the NX01 and MX02 bridges.

I am all for any new and valid addition to the game.
But before getting more 22nd century fluff items, I think we need more MEANINGFUL 25th century elements and keep things moving forward, not backward.
I personally want a Star Trek game that is actually Star Trek. On a qualitative level that could be a lot of different things for a lot of different people. But on a quantitative level, if the developers were to watch star trek and make the game like what they see, then at least it will be a shot in the right direction, as far as I am concerned.
