So assuming that they are taking the TOS Enterprise and making a Refit T5 version, why would it be so bad? The whole idea I believe Cryptic is giving us is the ability to fly the "iconic" ships we want to. Who cares if it's "to the period" I just want to fly the thing.
It was one thing I was kind of disappointed in when I pre-ordered STO is that I got to fly the TOS Enterprise for like 3 days and had to upgrade. Thats also why I got the Excelsior was because it's a good looking ship, and snazzy to fly. I could care less about what it has on it. I'll adapt my crew to fit it. I'd love to fly the ST:II Enterprise at T5 also, but just because it looks cool.
I really dont care, chronologicallity is very impractical in ST, When i started watching the movies, you watched WoK first because it was the best. Period.
Basically, i would like to fly T5 Connie, and a Dreadnaught(I think its called the Federation Class or something along the lines of that) Because if you arent with this, then your also screwing the klingons, the best ship on the Klingon Side (K'Tinga, Respectivly) is basically a D7, Which the Enterprise fought.
Might as well put the USS Enterprise supercarrier in the game XD JK.
People just do not know what they are talking about old ship. You people have forgot the DS9 show "Homefront" The USS Lakota (NCC-42768) a Excelsior class would have defeated the USS Defiant (NX-74205) If they used the quantum torpedoes the ship had. The Captain once given the order to destroy the USS Defiant (NX-74205) did not do it.
