surprisingly - geko and I were talking about this very thing today. I'd like to see more variety at all tiers and if I can get the ship art time out of CapnLogan - i'd like to see both the KDF and FEDs have more choices as they level up.

One idea we were talking about (brainstorming) was that if we did add some new ships at lower tiers, that we could put their unique powers on a console so that even after you leveled out of the ship, you could at least take the console with you and possibly use the ability on another similar ship. Sounded like a cool idea.

Make it so!

What i personally would like to see is some race-specific ships in the lower tiers for KDF players. I would say it's much more important than new FED ships. While playing 3 chars to vice admiral on the FED side i never had any problem with the available ships .. they feel allright ( and yes i would love to see a Ferengi starship indeed as a T5 ship *begging* ), because any captain belongs to starfleet.

I don't feel the same way for the KDF. The races there seem to be more of a loose alliance. I leveled up a Nausicaan character there and he got his Guramba Siege Destroyer. But that there are no race specific ships in the lower tiers prevents me from playing my Orion character. Because i don't want to command him a typical Klingon vessel.

i would love to see the nausican ship that was in the 'enterprise' series available from rank 2-5, doable with a few model tweaks and making it bigger models as you go up the ranks, make it primerily a sci ship passive buff but an some kind of hidden buff where if a sci captain is piloting it then it gets target subsystem abilities at the cost of something like crew number.

1) When you get to the part where you first see your ship go to a ship customization screen first.

Really, one ship being at tier 1 (or 0 to the devs) gets really boring. I've made a ton of characters. Each time it's that boring Miranda.
Why do yo want a another tier 1 ship?

Are you planing to fly it till you hit cap?

My self I am uber l33t n00b and I did not fly the tier 1 ship for more than 2 days..

Lots of pew pew gets you a tier 2 ship realy fast

You already have a full suite of KDF ships available in the form of Gorn, Orion etc... vessels.

It can never hurt to improve the pre-end game. In fact it can only help. The first tier needs the most help. Also the endless kill X/X missions but that's another issue.

I think this is a good idae, and not necessarily just in connection with an early ship. Coming up with a suite of 'special power'/quasi-refit consoles in general would be a good idea and help the ships that aren't the endgame gimmick ships feel less bland by comparison.

Here's an idea we could do away with the whole tier system entirely and have full diversity at all levels instead of forced choices. food for thought. would require a lot of work.
