# 1 Merchantman Ship
03-17-2014, 03:35 AM
I would like to request that STO add the Merchantman ship to the game as an NPC. It is the only canon ship not present in the game. It was used in ST3 and many TNG episodes. Also like to see a Sheliac version. Both would be useful for the Foundry

"It is the only canon ship not present in the game." LOL are you serious?

Do you have any idea how many ships are still missing from the game?
There are threads over threads with lists and this....sorry this is so inaccurate it blows my mind.

My reaction exactly...
My name may say "PWE member", but I will never be.

Don't look silly, don't call it "Zen-Store" - Don't waste devs time, Post proper bug-reports - I don't like Gekos

Lets just assume, for the sake of argument, that this was the only canon ship still missing in the game.

It would be pointless. It can only serve as a transport ship, and we already have the Tuffli and Cell ship for it. So even if there weren't many more ships that are quite more useful in the game, I would still see zero incentive in any developer to put this garbage hauler in. I'd rather see a playable Neelix Garbage Scow than an NPC this. Ok that isn't true but it does illustrate my feelings xD.
Not knowing something isn't a sign of stupidity, not asking is.

But........ but.......the only thing anything related to neelix is good for is target practice.

As inaccurate as the OP's statement may be, the Merchantman was one of the most used studio models in Star Trek history! It's very sad it's not in the game.

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.

While the OP's is very inaccurate, I would like to see this ship and other freighters put in the game just as NPCs to show the universe is diverse.

Of all the ships to add to the game.. you want a small civilian transport that's over 120 years old by now?
