It would be pretty nifty to have some kind of TOS title tossed in if Commodore is being saved.

Fleet Captain and Commodore were both TOS-only ranks that would make for a nice title.

One other thought would be a set of themed TOS titles:
Commodore
Fleet Captain
Technician
Yeoman
Midshipman

All were titles exclusive to TOS and the TOS-era films and were retired by TNG. I'm just tossing them all out if Commodore is taken.

"Old Country Doctor" has been a title I've wanted to see but it probably works better as an accolade title.

And if you wanted to make people scratch their heads, you could throw in "Captain Dunsel". A dunsel is 23rd century slang for a useless ship part and Kirk was called "Captain Dunsel" in "The Ultimate Computer" as an insult to imply he was obsolete.

I think one would be awesome. Just throwing some options out.

I completely disagree, if I have to spend how ever much they're gonna ask (1,200+) for this TOS pack, I would rather see them get it all in now and not have to ask down the road and maybe never see it added. Right now the pack is not available, Dan has shown interest in looking into this. Perhaps while his attention is here, maybe now would be the best time to bring this up...not down the road.

Oh... And I suppose I can be somewhat brusque but I do want to thank dstahl for dropping by this (and so many other) threads to consider these suggestions today.

Why? The justification for both is the same. It's barely even asking for two inches, especially since the game isn't even set up to make it appear in dialogue.

I really hope there's something worked out with the current TOS pack. I mean, if we have the regular TOS uniforms already, we ought to get the dress versions or Kirk's wraparound regardless. I can see paying more for a bridge/interior, but not uniforms - especially Kirk's wraparound.

I agree that all uniform sets (dress and green tunic) should be given to anyone that already has TOS uniform pack. But like you said, any title, interior, emotes or gadgets that might be added should stay with the new pack.

Ehh, idunno. That might be a bit much. The TOS dress unis represent a similar amount of work to the existing TOS unis.

On the other hand, if the TOS unis will be part of the TOS bundle pack, a limited-time discount for prior owners on the whole pack would be apprioriate, I think.

Would make me more likely to grab it.

Personally, I would like to see Commodore completely replace Rear Admiral Lower Half. It is a mouthful, and I feel like the npcs are making fun of me every time they use my full title: "Thank you Rear Admiral, Lower Half..." Then the Upper Half title can be just Rear Admiral.

But that might be more work than just adding it in as an additional title, and I would rather them use their time on better things than replacing titles.
