Lol the intro pic to this was from the "Name That Ship Contest" ! So many memories....
The answer from Cryptic here discouraged me a tad bit...
Q: MustrumRidcully: There have been many concerns by canon people that the game risks losing verisimilitude by making Vulcan ships, NX-01 or the Excelsior refits or the Galaxy-X available in game...
A: We do discuss this topic internally and with CBS and at the end of the day our goal is to ensure that if we do put a legacy ship into the game, it is scaled appriopriately to make sense for our current era. We use the concepts of refits and retro-fits to explain why certain old ship classes would still be available for Captains. We certainly want fans to be able to fly their favorite ships in game and are always looking to find the right power balance to make sure there is a reason why they'd still be around in our timeline. This is why most of these ships are limited in terms of configuration layouts.
....not really a "true" answer.
NX-01 has no purpose in the 25th century.......at least add a 2nd skin to it please....oh and not a C-Store skin...I'm tired of being forced to pay for all these small things...
Although Im glad that got an answer for my question I did feel like this Ask Cryptic was a little disapointing. (sad face for no lower tiered grn, orion, or nassusican ships)
It seemed like the vast majority of answers were its "were discussing that" or "wait till the next season/update" it just seems like cryptic is less willing then they were before to give hard details.
Outside of that I just hope that we get more endgame content, rather then more alternative ways to level. I love the new weekly series and some of the ideas for more patrol missions/ alternative ways to level for both factions. I just hope that truly deep and difficult endgame content (like GOOD STFs) is dropped completely.
Well Cryptic managed to answer my little "P.S." question but they completely cut out my main question. Out of 2 paragraphs they just read and posted my last 2 sentences (original post is right here - http://forums.startrekonline.com/sho...86166&page=3)? I'm still wondering if they'll be fixing the binding of weapons problem real soon. I purchased 4 Mk X and Mk XI ship weapons that said they were "Bind on Equip" with my emblems and marks. The problem is that they bound themselves to the character as soon as they were purchased. Unfortunately, they weren't meant for that character. That was my real question. The one about the TOS bridge was just an add-on at the bottom. I'm hoping that they will allow us to trade the items back in for what they cost us in marks and/or emblems. The problem is that the last item problem I had was 7 months ago and they still haven't fixed that one, so I don't think that I'll be holding my breath for them to fix this one anytime soon.
Attention SFC Routing thru Admiral Quinn to Teh Cryptic Institute for Federation Improvements.
A Topic begin in the 10F area for improvements or ideas Poll worthy
We would like to see the new SB 1 HUB add to our experience to include a place or Whole Deck of Harmony
that could tap the UGC aspects of Exploration to display Samples found on our journeys for all lto enjoy
SUPER Idea > to enhance it I suggest something really inclusive..
You have this great place of Peaceful reflection what could be nicer then adding Plants you find on exploration missions to it.. I can see it now..
The Admiral Seelowe Momiji Plant ? You find something UGC and submit it to the UFP Academy of Science
and it is added to the garden of Harmony?
Is there in the near future to be able for a First Officer, Department Heads, Doctor, Chief Engineer? We are able to add more bridge officers, but some aren't on the bridge. So,some of the bridge officers could be in the science and engineering areas.
Are there plans to stop Talarian vessels (the one's with an x-wing) from being used as Freighters and Cargo haulers in STO? Those vessels rock and I've not given up hope of seeing the Talarians in STO. Also, will we see that particular race?
A very thoughtful Translation indeed.. THIs important to have the respect noted for all our Euro Friends
My Old Fleet was a major Beta test block in Star Fleet Command with Member noted in the Acknowledged Closed Beta Testers in the game manual. I always felt the spin for past Romulan design paths went into many grey areas due to the lack of depth in most Episodic Canon. I would say just go back to the Team writings from TOS and the Genesis of the Faction Creation for inspiration.
PATH to 2400 started out well with many good updated logical paths then sadly started rushing and watering down the inner strife. I believe its much more true to the old Roman Empires Senate and Ruling Factions for the Creation of the faction in TOS.. So Their is a place for the Old school Romulans to co-exist with the Revisionist Nero's.. So plenty of fun to be had.
The LAst major on-line Publisher of a ST Lic IP worked off the Star Fleet Battles Faction MAps and based the KDF on the old Soviet Union and the American Confederacy for Political styles Mixed up with Feudal Noble Houses with bits of Samurai and Euro Knights. Plenty of wiggle for respectful creative lic here..
My Take of Social and Government upheaval Go to the Model of Rome pre and Post Vandal sacking that broke old ROme's Power for good . and Made Constantine's Eastern Empire of the "Greeks" the last remnant of Empire tradition.
Hey Dstahl, long time no see on the forums. If you're checking this out, could you please give some word on if you guys ever plan to improve the galaxy-x (i.e bring it in line with current ships). As you know, some of us jumped through some hoops to get this ship and others paid double the current cost of any other c-store retrofit for it!
Edit: By the way, love the great work that has been put into the featured episodes. They've been giving me a reason to continue logging on, long after most people I know have left the game.
