So after logging just over 1300 hours gameplay Ive decided my next character was gonna be for fun and to once again enjoy the storyline so I decided to roll it old school and went with the TOS connie and an TOS crew all decked out in TOS gear. So ive just completed night of the comet 10 times (to get the TOS phaser/rifles for all of my crew) and it got me thinking. What happens when I go up a rank ? please please cryptic can we have a retro fit TOS connie and bridge please ? I want to be able to carry on playing TOS style from start to finish. Im sure im not the only person who would purchase a TOS refit with bridge. Also now mission replays are out it makes it difficult as with the TOS connie/NX01 Enterprise and runabout there are no bridges for these ships.

Keep up the good work

NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


It makes barely any sense as it is to have the NX and TOS Connie in game at all. And I even use my NX from time to time.

The ship looks bad, its 200 years old and its so so small compared to the Sovvy or the Galaxy. Get with the times ffs lol


Im all for people wanting to do whatever they want and having fun in doing so, but this will never happen. It SHOULDNT happen, why not use the Connie Refit there already is. I know a few people who kept the Connie Refit up to endgame and have refit it quite well

Hey, it's Star Trek, and TOS is what started it all, what it's all based on, and what a fair number of us love. I would love to see, and use, a TOS Connie in that way.

Tryulis I understand where your coming from but your not looking at things in the spirit of Star Trek. Whos to say my ship got caught in a temporal loop ? im not asking for an uber refit all i want is a ship which I can use form start to endgame. I dont want to have to abandon my TOS connie because the hull or the ship isnt up to it. Bear in mind ive logged a lot of hours in this game and done everything there is to do and more. All im aksing for is to have fun and epxlore the STO universe in original series style.

You know having played PVP many times you will actually need multiple ships working together just to take down one player, so are you sure a T-5 version of a T-1 ship would be able to destroy other T-5 ships easily, also aren't the klingons using Birds of Prey at T-5. Also couldn't Cryptic make were your retrofited T-1 ship is at a slight disadvantage in PvP without affecting PVE that much.

Personally, I'm all in favor of it, though not just for the Connie. Me, I want to be able to use the T3 cruiser at admiral levels.

A refit of that nature wouldn't be too hard to do for Cryptic all for escorts and cruisers, Fed side.

You give them the same stats as star/assault cruisers and fleet/advanced escorts, with the following 3 changes:
1. The ensign slot is universal instead of tact/sci (for cruisers) or eng/sci (for escorts).
2. You lose that 3rd tact/sci (for cruisers) or eng/sci (for escorts) console.
3. It uses some refit captain skill.

For sci vessels, you could do the same thing, except you'd need to resolve the turn rate differential between deep space and recon. I'd say having it turn 1 worse than the recon ought to do the trick.

just out of curiosity what makes you think im interested in pvp ? pvp is only a small component of this game. Im sick bored to death of pvp. My other 5 end game characters (VA/LG) have been pvp'd to death. This is just for ***** and giggles and to have a laugh and enjoy the game. Why can i not use a TOS connie from start to finish ? Axterix those are some good ideas. I was thinking maybe of keeping the 3 officers but having each office use 4 skills so your still using the 12 skill limit so to speak.
