I'm honestly surprised by all the outrage about this... is it really that shocking that a fan pointed out that CBS doesn't seem to enforce canon in STO, and that a Cryptic employee(s) are aware of that fact?
im happy that you agree that canon isn't followed well, if you denied it I'd have to... disagree lol. i have posted quite a few times in the past how surprised i was at what cbs lets cryptic get away with regarding canon.
just don't go down that supporting a tier 5 connie road, its just impossible for something that small and shaped the way it is to stand up to the large tier 5 ships. the 24/25 century ship with around the same cubic volume of a connie are shaped like blobs, and they need to be, if they were that narrow they wouldn't be able to house large, modern systems and weapons that are similar to those found on large ships. those large, modern, ships can be more traditional shaped, their largeness allows for it.
