Now the big question is: What do you want to see as an upgrade for the intrepid line.

Some things come to mind:

- Isokinetic Cannon
- If they take the easy way out and just throw on a hangar then it should launch delta flyers.
- http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Refractive_shield
- Warship Voyager skin
- Borg skin.

As for boff seating and consoles i think they don't need anything. To change too much would remove the science feeling from the intrepid.

So what are your ideas on the subject.
1) Fix the model. It is blatantly flawed. (That includes the Ablative Armour activation/deactivation animation, which looks nothing like the one from VOY: "Endgame".

2) Tie the ablative console, photonic torpedo console together in a 2pc set bonus to speed, turn rate and flow caps.

3) Proper Voyager interiors. Grey colour scheme, Voyager ready room and observation lounge off of the bridge, and a proper engineering section (not that 2x massive Sovereign core).

One more possible addition: metaphasic sweep.

Something of an innate cloak detection.

Yup, such laziness. Still, looking forward to my Avenger getting one....it will eventually lol

I tend to forget using them, so, I find this really useful even though I'm not choosing exactly on what subsystem I'm diminishing.

There's also very cheap Doffs that nobody seems to want on the exchange that significantly shorten the cooldowns of subsystem targeting. with just one of them, I'm fairly sure I can shorten cooldowns enough so that I can fire off one such ability every fifteen second indefinitely even though innate subsystem targeting has unoptimized cooldown ratios.

There's also a great Voth Duty Officer whom makes it so that there's a good chance that a second subsystem will be taken down to zero for 3 seconds.

I run both these Doffs, and combined a flow capacitor of 100+, those inbuilt powers really pull their weight.

Know all about 'em. Just seemed like something to do with it would be a good fit given the way the ship operated in the series, y'know?

Actually, if it's 3rd place out of the Science Ships, then it's doing a damn sight better in its class than the Galaxy is relative to other Cruisers.

The Intrepid line is a solid design and although outclassed by the wells and Vesta, which i do not consider a pure blooded science vessel, it can hold its own.

Competition is fierce in the science department: Wells, Vesta, Nebula, Nova and Intrepid.
Well, there's the Luna as well but i have never seen that particular ship anywhere.

But let's get back on the original question: If the Intrepid line receives a reboot, then what do you feel would be worthwhile additions.

For me it would have to be the items i mentioned in the OP or some additional science ability.
Turning an Intrepid into a science heavy escort would feel wrong.

Turning it into a carrier would have the same effect though there is something to be said regarding that because it is hard to separate Voyager and the Delta Flyer.

Let's hear your thoughts and ideas.

Well, if they are to reboot the Intrepid line, along with the suggestions above it would be nice if they added the Aeroshuttle, a custom designed shuttle embedded in the underside of the Intrepid's saucer. Its a line of Danube that was specifically designed for the Intrepid class.

It could act as a ship similar to the Vulcan D'kyr's companion ship?

This shuttle is canon cause it showed up in schematics in some voyager episodes as well as technical manuals and of course Memory Alpha. See link below:

I think this should be one of the many things added to Season 9.

Maybe make a two piece set bonus grant you a Delta Flyer (or maybe Janeway's Shuttle from the finale?) that gains the abilities of the consoles (Ablative Armor and PSW Transphasic Torpedoes). [/end musings]

Unfortunately, none of the Federation starships with Captain's Yachts/Aeroshuttles ever got implemented in the game. The Galaxy, Sovereign, Defiant, Intrepid, Nova, etc all do not have the option to go "yachting".
