I dunno, I don;t get bothered by TOS connie's around by the same excuse I would use for NX series ships around - blame starfleet engineering.

Engineering school in starfleet is probably where all the old ships get refitted and then deployed as the equivalent of "class projects". OF course, this also means if you're commanding one, you might want to be a little careful and double check everything was properly assembled.....

But, I may be too willing to see a humorous yet theoretically valid way to have really old ships in service with the new stuff. Its the starfleet equivalent of a bunch of high school kids restoring a car, then modernizing it as much as possible.

This NX-Class replica is not a ship restored from mothballs or the fleet museum. She's a brand new ship built from the keel up with Starfleet's latest materials and computer packages.

And she handles like an escort. Not seeing any reason this can't be made into a Retrofit, or a T5 ship at all. She handles great. I put dual cannons on the bow of mine and she's great.

Yeah, this is my dream come true.. not because I wanted an NX, but because I just couldn't stand playing the light cruiser ever again. Light Escorts are sweet.

I have to agree, I have too many alts and adding a light escort is a very good move on cryptic's part. Its also a sensible niche for the NX IMO because its playable without rocking the boat too much.

Although, I think they should work on a "premium" tier 3/5 escort of some kind, just to keep the escort players in line with the other ship types.

That's...actually not a terrible analogy. I've seen a 67 Ford Mustang completely gutted and had the engine, transmission, fuel system, exhaust, suspension etc. replaced with all new stuff from a 2010 Mustang. The skin was the same but the innards were all brand new. Well crap I'm gonna go name my new NX the USS Mustang haha
