It has been stated by Gecko that CBS categorically refuses the idea of a Tier5 Connie.

Armitage is not old maybe the akira is but is not modeled after that.

Fine.. O'Brien and Geordi's revolutionary modular ship construction system has made the need to completely phase out old hulls more or less obsolete. Tier 5-up away.

Just...just don't go too overboard. Be not blinded by nostalgia nerds, keep the torch burning for spiffy new 25th-century designs.

That is all I ask.
Those "nerds" are some of the most loyal (albeit sometimes also the most unpleasant) players. It's only fair to bring up older ships now and then. However I do agree that from gameplay the Ambassador is pretty much useless.

This wasn't obvious to people already?
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.

its not as simple as how much money would they make off of a t5 connie, or a connie lock box. the devs have said time and time again that cbs has put the final "NO" on it.. you will not see a t5 connie. you might see something get close to it. but it will most likely not happen.. i wont say with 100 percent sureness cause i have seen dumber things happen in this game.. but im 90 percent posotive you wont see one.

heres a hint as to it as well.. (if they were gonna do it, they would have already done it)..

and as far as there being fans of it, and nastalgic players wanting it.. it is in game.. and it is were it should be.. if you want to fly it, then fly it. you will have the same disadvantages as a connie in this timeline would have.. there for you will have a more "canon" expeprience lol...

yeah. most likely, if they ever make a "fleet cruiser retrofit" it will be either 1. a completely new ship with the standard "2 nacelles, saucer and a secondary hull with struts tying the three together in something that looks like the iconic constitution class from the side". or 2. figuring out how to make the current cruisers updatable without including the connie skin."
