HOLY CRAP! You're on to something! You should work for them. If you did, we'd have our saucer sep by now! lol! Great idea though! I agree as well.

Most players would probably be quite happy to have even crappy Saucer Separation, but then there would be that small percentage of forum posters who just love pointing out every mistake Cryptic makes and would use it as ammunition against Cryptic for the next few years. So better for Cryptic to just get it done whenever they get it done. It's a side project, anyway. It's not really something that was promised to us.
STO is about my Liberated Borg Federation Captain with his Breen 1st Officer, Jem'Hadar Tactical Officer, Liberated Borg Engineering Officer, Android Ops Officer, Photonic Science Officer, Gorn Science Officer, and Reman Medical Officer jumping into their Jem'Hadar Carrier and flying off to do missions for the new Romulan Empire. But for some players allowing a T5 Connie to be used breaks the canon in the game.

I'm guessing it's done and they're just waiting for a way to sell it the players for some ridiculous pricing schedule.

I recall reading on STO Wiki that the Dreadnought Cruiser Saucer Sep was going to be released before Season 8 (or late 2013). But I also recall reading that it was slated for release last spring, then in the summer, then by Christmas, and yeah...you can see where I'm going with this.

I just think its hilarious that if you destroy a ship that separates (Galaxy, Prometheus) it reforms while exploding which is completely ridiculous Surely it would be better if all parts just exploded independently

Or that when you dock it, whether it blew up or not, the crew that went with it are somehow all dead.

You would think it really wouldn't be that hard.

That's why most of us aren't programmers or animators.

And, again, Saucer Sep on the ship is a side project - something they do in their spare time rather then something promised to us.
