I'm back guys - sorry!!!!!!! I've been gone for a while, but I'm now the head contact for the ship team. MTattersall moved to a different project so now it's all me.
I've got some really cool stuff coming soon. I'll have a gander through this thread soon and get back in touch with all of you - I apologize for my absence.
Oh my! This means there may still be hope for the Intrepid being finished..?
I'm so excited!
My precious Miwaku.. I can't wait to see it with all of it's little white, green and red lights blinking and pulsing away~
Back after several months - all the cool new stuff like the spiffy new (old!) Spacedock lured me in again!
Felt this was the best place to say a huge THANK YOU!!! to whoever came up with the new hull textures and modifications for the Klingon ships!
Seriously - if anyone's not already seen this (might be old news by now, but it's refreshing for me!), check out the ship tailor for your Klingon ships. There's a great authentic green pattern for the Bird of Prey, and there's now a separate D7 option for the cruiser, without any of the raised patterning on the back.
Really appreciate these additions to the game - the Klingon ships have always been great fun to fly, but let down somewhat by cosmetic flaws. Not anymore - now they just look awesome!
I'd wax lyrical on the subject some more, but my battlecruiser ain't going to fly itself... Thanks again, to whoever was responsible for this!
I thought I would also mention a few model issues while its dead here at work.
1: Teir 2 cruseiers variants need a little more love. (eg. shuttlebay added to Vesper and Excalibur classes, more detail and decals added to the class in general.)
2: Galaxy class secondary hull needs rcs thrusters at front near deflector. Also deflector needs the same love that you give the Soveriegn model. Also the deflector bite as they all it has to be remodeled.
3: Intrepid under saucer needs more work.(I dont persanolly fly the class, but I did notice how it looked vey blocky)
4: Defiant fixes. (numerous liitle tweaks)
And on another note, more ship parts for each teir(or a C-Store pack) which givers us more nacelles and saucers sections to choose from as apossed to just the 3.
Thing that bugs me most with the Galaxy right now is that the Pylons curvature is "too sharp"
The Curves are supposed to be softer, longer, more drawn out.

I agree. I think the secondary Hull needs a little overhaull full stop. If I recall the pylons are attached to the Hull as a seperate section in game at the moment. The saucer is spot on, just needs the registry near the main shuttlebay.
The deflector bothers me though, as it is a seperate dish. On the current model its just the plain blue deflector. The overbite needs to be modelled on the secondary Hull, not to mention the missing rcs thrusters.
Galaxy class asside, I think the teir two crusier needs more love. The Excaliber and Vesper are dying to have a shuttlebay implimented if we have shuttles in game now.lol
