# 1 Argo Shuttle
02-06-2011, 02:26 AM
Shouldnt the Argo from nemesis be added as the closest thing to a 25th century shuttle?

Makes sense as it was the most advanced and last shuttle in the ST line.

If you want to go by newest pure shuttle it would either be one of two ships depending on your perspective. I don't count the arog carrying shuttle because it was designed to carry the argo and is quite a bit larger then the typical shuttle craft.

The alternative future Admiral Janeway's shuttle.

Either way I want to see a ton more shuttles ingame now.

if they add the argo shuttle they would also need to add the Argo itself + a ground vehicle mission.

i don't think that is intended right now, but might turn up at some point.


think about it.

orbit a planet in your ship,
go to interrior,
walk to shuttle bay,
fly shuttle down to planet,
go into shuttle interrior,
use ARGO and drive like Halo through the ground map.

It would still be a good(-looking) shuttle without the ground vehicle. Also, I'd guess the Argo car would have limited use but require extensive software tech to be created, thus making it low priority.

In short I like all of the TNG movie shuttles/small crafts. Lets see what the future brings.

I think this WOULD be possible soon (TM) with the current technology - I mean it is just substituting your character A for character B, which still goes WASD and has its own run animations etc

The big issue with any and all of this is ground map size. The maps at present are just 500% too small.

It means that the Argo would only work on new maps specifically made/supported, locking out the entire game. Perhaps causing episodes to be remastered again!

But, this would be awesome! And it should open the door to flying your shuttle as a vehicle in a planetary atmosphere... i.e. shuttle vs alien ship fights on the ground, going through obstacles, having races etc

Lets compare shall we?

Warthog:
  • Fast
  • Durable
  • Inexpensive
  • Lightly Armed
  • Always getting destroyed

Argo:
  • Fast
  • Durable
  • Fairly Well Armed
  • Insanely tenacious and lucky
  • Comes with its own shuttle
  • General Lee style jumps

Conclusion? Argo wins no contest.

donít care if they omit speed buggy but I like the way that shuttle looks and would like to see it in game. Can they though, does cbs own the rights to that since I think it was only ever seen in the movie.

Top picture is the type 11 shuttle and the venture scot ship.

Admiral janeway's shuttle looks like a modifed version of the type 9 shuttle.

I have asked this many times for the argo to be in and yet no answer?

Why have an Argo (or yet another shuttle) after the Yellowstone? That wee beasty can do all the things expected of the Argo without much additional imagination, and is larger to boot.

Also..... lack of shuttle content = no point developing shuttles.......
