Let me put it this way. I'd pay money for a proper Constellation class ship. I'd pay a lot of money for a Constellation class ship. Even if it isn't T5. I'd buy the thing in a heartbeat.

The thing is, how many OTHER people would buy it? How much demand is there for the Constellation, really? Especially if it isn't T5, and is just a vanity thing.

It's got to be profitable enough for Cryptic to assign an artist to it, and all the other dev time needed to make it into the game.

Exactly. The TOS Connie is in there because it is the definitive icon of Star Trek, and its bound to be wanted by many players. But most people have never even seen the Constellation class, or given it any notice. As a vanity ship it would make hardly any sales, and not be worth the cost at all.

The only thing I think might let it into the game is if it is made a unique variant for the Tier 5 Fleet Heavy Cruiser Retrofit (Cheyenne). This still doesn't make up for the hours needed to make the model, but at least they don't have to figure out all the stats for it.

Of course, and i understand, that is why i am asking people to support it.
it is ok if they decide to make it a "full" ship, i am not saying that they should not, and of course also, if you make it a skin for the Cheyenne, or a "related" ship (like the Tunderchild to the Akira and so), then you could very well have a fleet retrofit Cheyenne looking like a Constellation.
We have other ships that are not so famous around, i see no point not to have the Constellation because of a "popularity" thing, because i am sure that it is more well known that some of the other classes.

Yeah the constellation class should be in game, I agree it should be a cruiser retrofit level ship. But there there should be a tier 5 fleet version too.
The Somraw, K'tinga, D'Kyr, D7, Kumari, Xindi carrier, Xindi escort, and the T'Varo are all older than the Constitution Refit and yet they are tier 5. The rule needs to change.

I am not so sure about the fleet retrofit or tier 5, but i do think it could be a tier 3 ship.

Intresting fact: The Stargazer was a kit bash from 2 Revelle Enterprise A models and a Gundam model. If you look closley at the Ship you can see the Enterprise A's parts all over it. There are some intresting facts about the ship. Its 4 Nacells gave it some special abilities that other ships did not have. Such as being able to make tight turns at warp, By adjusting the warp fields of Each Nacelle at diffrent frequencies would cause the ship to make manuevers other ships couldent. Kind of like Bow plain thrusters on todays ships. And abilities like the Picard manuver. The only reason the ship Class was decommissioned was it had Faulty fire supression systems and the internal dampeners were unable to compensate for the beefed up warp field and caused it crew to suffer from nausea and motion sickness. I would love if you could have "Trophy Ships" in this game like Kirks Enterprise refit. with the authentic motion picture interior, Arboretum and everything. The Stargazer, Voyager and other famous ships from the books and movies and shows. even if they were just skins and interior packs. To be able to Walk around our favorite ships is great. I love the TOS pack, I just wich it was bigger. ANd we have a Pack for every famous ship.

Yes i was ware of it being based heavily on Constitution-Refit parts, and the fact that having 4 nacelles gave it more manoeuvrability.

Not sure where you got all this supposed background information (about the fire suppression etc.) but have you ever seen "The Original Series", or "The Next Generation"-episodes like "The Emissary"?
Ships could always turn at warp until that stupid episode on Voyager where they suddently stated they can't and have to slow to impulse.
Heck, in "The Ultimate Computer" the Enterprise fought other ships at Warp 3+ without ever slowing down.
It's not a feature unique to the Constellation class.

He was referring to the ships with 4 nacelles having inherently more manoeuvrability at warp than 2 nacelles designs, something i have read about many times, not like shown on some of the episodes, but theoretically even higher degrees.
How many of you would like to see the class in the game anyway?.
