Hate to bring up an old thread and argument. I certainly appreciate the argument those have presented that V.S.S. does not belong. However, in fairness to the opposing view...we know from TNG:Unification II that Vulcan did in fact maintain it's own fleet separate from Starfleet.
We also know that Vulcans continued their exploration even into the Gamma Quatrant making first contact with the Wadi (DS9: Move Along Home). And that they were at the forefront of Gamma Quatrant exploration (DS9: Sword of Kahless and Vortex).
I find it hard to believe that sometime between 2369 and 2409 Vulcans completely assimilated their fleet into Starfleet or stopped their, clearly documented, tradition of exploration. There is simply no evidence of this in canon or in the lore of this game.
So...it should be fair, from an RP perspective, to RP a Captain of a Vulcan Science vessel under the command of the Vulcan High Council or Vulcan High Command (some debate as to whether this still existed) or Vulcan Science Council.
Additionally, they absolutely should have their own interiors. Why would one gut a seemingly functional (some would say superior) ship and retrofit it with a completely different design? That simply isn't logical.
I was a little surprised when the Tal'Kyr was released as a Federation ship, since I thought the Federation did not use the Vulcan designs in their ships and the Vulcans used those ships in their own science fleet separate from Starfleet.
It's not a big deal considering many of us in the game use tribbles and Horta in combat. I never saw that in Star Trek either
Even Kirk answered a hail as:: "This is the United States Ship Enterprise..." at times. And I guess you forgot that Start Trek is American.
Couldn't tell if you were being only mostly sarcastic which you probably were (it's hard to tell sometimes on the internet) so I apologize in advance but star trek is meant to show an ideal utopian future where mankind considers itself as part of a federation where interplanetary boundries mean little and national identities have become non-existent
