# 1 New Look for Toron Shuttle
12-14-2012, 08:35 PM
The Toron Shuttle got a facelift on Tribble. Here's some screenshots of it. Anybody else think they'll be flying this one more often now that it looks this good?

While I'll still be sticking with my Timeship shuttle whenever I want something aesthetically interesting, I do think they did a really nice job with the reworking of the Toron.

I hate it, it makes the Toron look dorky with those X-Wings. The canonical Toron never had such features, and it's hull was the size similar to the Type 8 shuttlecraft. So why is Cryptic messing with something that's canon?

Surely they could've kept the Toron and make this a new shuttlecraft. (Still could do without the stupid X-wings).

I love the new look! It finally looks like a formidable craft!

So am I the only one that noticed it's just a modified runabout main hull? Look at the top view of it and he bottom'll see it once your eyes stop focusing on the mods

I never felt the Toron was very attractive to start with, and IMO it just looks like Cryptic went crazy with an ugly stick on it.

I wish they'd quit fixing things that aren't broken or forcing unasked for changes on us, at the very least make it a new ship or an alternate model people can choose from in the ship customization screen if they actually like it.

Supposedly Cryptic can't make new ships for us in the cstore because it isn't worth their time or finish our faction but they have time to do who knows what to the beloved RED ui (ask cryptic 12/2012) and ugly up our shuttle! <rolls up newspaper swats on nose>STOP IT! BAD CRYPTIC! <swat> BAD CRYPTIC!

Yeah, i fail the see the point of this facelift.
The Thoron was looking pretty canon as it was.
Why make a new skin for it which was not needed instead of making a new shuttle which we would have liked more?

After actually trying it on tribble...

it looks like a toron shuttle with an elongated rear end, with a hegta bop's rear, attached to the shuttle

It's a bit odd, and really does remind me of an x-wing
