I liked those shots enough to make one into an avatar and I'm very picky about my avatars

Every screenshot Cryptic releases gets me more and more excited about this game. I love this idea of Episodic content. Seems like it will really try to capture the feel of the series'. Can't wait to see how it plays out.

The Akira Class looks beautiful, the Klingons look good too.

Perhaps you could leak a screenshot of an Intrepid Class or Vor'Cha Class Attack Cruiser next ... or maybe a little combat?

The exploding planetoid and the escaping Akira-class are utterly stunning. I'm liking the variations in the Klingon armor/uniform. I am also glad we got a look at an Orion ship -- very much in line with what we saw on Enterprise.

The way I figure it though, if you're any real distance away from another ship, you're not going to see the name painted on the hull anyways, no matter how big the letters are. So there would have to be something in the User Interface telling you what ship you're looking at and so on. So why not just make the name and registry number as they are normally seen, and let the UI tell you what the ship name is.
The idea if size, itself, is one that I could live with if it's particularly important to Cryptic that a starship's name be visually identifiable - if, in fact, that's the reasoning.

More important, I think, is the issue of color, font and content. I think the use of the color red and what appears to be a script-based font exaggerate the size issue and appear unduly jarring. As well, the absence of the moniker "USS" and the registry, "NCC-12345" is notable change and does materially change the character of Starfleet vessels.

I think, above all, the issue of content is the most important one.

I'm very pleased. With a game and show like star trek, you just need to have enough graphics not to take you away from feeling like you may actually be in space and talking to some alien race. The content should take care of the rest, as it does in the shows. These graphics go waaaay beyond that, good work.
