# 1 Tier 6 Ships!
05-17-2010, 08:40 AM
Have you ever found yourself at floating around at T5 and wanting to use a lower tier starship but still want to be first in PvP or useful in STF's?

What if you could use any ship at a T5 level?

After looking at the poll for which new ship to implamented next it is clear that whichever ship is chosen, that people want to be able to use it at end game. In fact there are several ships throughout the game that people what to use but are torn over using it at endgame because of its huge disadvantages against other tier 5 ships. What I propose and want to know if it is feesable or not is once the skill cap has been increased whether it would be possible to make all ships availiable and useful to a maximum rank player?. And yes they are already but what sort of system could be introduced to make it viable that any ship used would have as much chance of being useful as the tier 5 ships. Throughout Star Trek series you see all sorts of captains and admirals in all kinds of ships and it would be amazing to see this variaty in pvp or on missions at end game.

So how could it be done. By making a new Tier where all the BO slots are universal? Or by increasing things like hull and shield levels based on your skill points or rank and not on the ships innate ability itself? Im not sure but I wanted to see If anyone else thinks this would be a good Idea and how would you Implament it?

well one way they could also do it, and make something of use for memory alpha crafting.
could be a crafted ship refit kit for endgame crafting

you liked flying your T4 ship, get to the last level of crafting, collect all resourse to do it and refit that ship to be more compatiable to endgame ships of the line

though im also hoping when the lvl cap comes in that we do get some kinda T6 ships and or a refit, as well as maybe a few more BO abitlys to use.

I could go for that, I like that ideal of crafting a new ship when you get to end game.

Definatley, would love to take an Akira to endgame.

Perhaps even have it so you can choose refit type?
Because personally i always thought of the Akira like in the tech manual, a Heavy Cruiser, not some lame-o escort.

Why does everyone want Higher Tier Variants of the old and busted Starships?

I mean people are talking about Akira Class and Galaxy Class are like 100 year old models. No amount of "Re-Fitting" is going to modernize it.

HENSE the Star Cruisers/Advanced Escorts... Tier 6 ships would most likely be even newer and NOT rehashed old Variants. You don't see people in TNG flying around in "Refit Constitution Class"

I actually agree with you. The old ships were/are neat, but are outdated. I personally think it's fine the way it is now though I wouldn't mind new T6/T5 ships.

Because this is Star Trek and I am willing to assume that at this point, the only people left playing are Star Trek fans. Flying your favourite ship(s) at your maximum level without penalty is fun. It also allows devs to increase the level cap and can cut down on the amount of work needed to re-introduce popular variants at the current maximum tier.

I disagree. You're talking about immersion by strictly regulating what kind of ships exist in the current timeline. Since it's pretty clear that immersion takes a backseat in this game to overall player flexibility (c.f. TOS / TWoK / Mirror Universe costumes for a frame of reference), these ships should be allowed to refit to T5 specs. They've already said they're going to have one T4 ship of each class (Galaxy, Intrepid and Defiant) available as T5 / T5.5 ships.

Yeah I mean C'Mon guys... whether you like it or not ships like the Star Cruisers and Fleet Escorts are the newest generation of Federation Technology.
