I agree with all of the above, ingame reveal... I actually didn't even want the pics they've posted so far out. I think the winning design should have been a tight sealed secret until the ingame reveal but that's just me. The luster is sadly already tarnished. C'est la vie

Secondly, um... did it occur to you that it probably isn't even finished yet? I'm willing to bet Dstahl is just as excited about as we all are and simply blew his top trying in vain to keep it a secret, thus the pic and status updates lol.

I think it's pretty clever how they do it.
Sure, they get a lot of negative comments at the moment with the half finished pictures.
Could it be it's a calculated lowering of expectations?
And even for those of us that can sort of see where they are heading with this, will be blown out of the water by the final reveal?

Ok, I stand corrected. I apologize for my eager ness to see the new ship. I just don't want to be dissapointed with the final ship. Sorry if I came over harsh.

Imagine if the final version of the ship is actually the Sovereign...

Given all the grief they had over the winning design and the "Dervish?!?" incident. It would probably be prudent for them to skip that part of the process and just name it themselves. The fanatic backlash would be no greater and it would save them the fuss of having to deal with another controversial competition.

You people need a better understanding of marketing. Slow tease releases are the way to go until you build up to the final reveal.

I'm actually enjoying seeing the design process evolve, it's also really nice that the fans are being able to give input on the ships design as well via feedback. If people don't want to follow that process, then they don't have too, no need to restrict people that do want to see it from being able to.

Perhaps they could add 'spoiler' tags to the design process instead? Instead of posting the pictures of it on the front page, just have an ASDB logo or something, that way people that don't want to have the surpirse spoiled don't see it, only if you click to read the article will you see the pitures of the ship, I think that would keep both camps happy?

*Edit* Also, isn't it a bit hypocritical to start a thread like this whilst having an image of the Enterprise-F design as your signiture?

They should also have one stationed inside ESD, if it'll fit in, replacing the Galaxy-class currently there.

On the contrary, I'm enjoying these dev diaries on designing the next Enterprise. It's nice to see something evolve from a sketch to an in-game ship over time, seeing how much effort has been put into it. I'd much prefer an in game reveal when the time is right.

I want to see the final product as much as anybody, but I see no need to rush it before they're ready.

Anyone who doesnt want to see it early can not look. Its not like someone is going to come to your house and force you to look at it. If you lack self control, that is a personal problem
