Yes, considering it's one of the ships that was on TV for 7 years and looks nothing like what was on the show.

Yes, considering he actually revised the skin on the ship and fixed everything but the underside

Yes, considering he put in art for the Reman, Aegis, and Borg shield for it and didn't fix the underside.

Yes, considering he made a variant for it (Bellerophon) and that underside is wrong too.

Also there may be a bug with the bellerophon (not sure about other intrepid saucers).

When you trip a power that makes "red things glow on the saucer" the 4 red points aren't symmetrically placed.

Yes and they were all made by you.

It's not that big of deal really. Looking at the bottom of your ship isn't exactly part of the game play. Its not like you a flying back to your ship in a shuttle or looking at your ship in orbit through a telescope on the planet.

Hey Bran, add this idea to your list of feedback: a telescope terminal on social maps where you can look up in space at your ship. Unless you're in an Intrepid, and then who would want to?

Hmm, never noticed this before.

...honestly, unless it's as horribly wrong as the Galaxy was at launch, then I'm not sure if it's that big a deal.

Please take your "it's not a big deal" elsewhere and stop threadcrapping. Thanks.

i agree the Intrepid in STO is just horrible for so many reasons.


the visuals are WAY off...
no need to even talk about it, just compare 2 pictures, even CapnLogan knows this is all sorts of WRONG.
he just has no time on the schedule (default excuse) to fix old things if the boss wants him to build new C-Store ships (and even those have visual errors because they were RUSHED)...

even the new Belaphoron Skin is looking oddly plain on the underside...

not to mention that the special power, the *Batman Armor*... is utterly USELESS.

you are limited to shooting Torpedos, no Beams,
that only pauses the game, you cant do damage, you cant barely heal,
all it does is give you 10 seconds for some cooldowns to expire.

it has a huge cooldown (3 minutes?), in Voyager's "Endgame" Episode the Voyager was shooting very powerful Torpedoes while in that mode, my Torps are still doing the same low damage they always do, why shut down my Phasers?
In Endgame Voyager was able to brake Borg Tractor Beams while in that mode... in STO tractor beams hold me anyway. -> this is even contradicting CANON.

This is not what i've seen on screen -.-

Additionally i don't care about the "power" of the item, i care about the VISUAL FX !
It looks awesome and i want my Ship to fly around LOOKING like that all the time!


MVAM mode is a TOGGLE
Galaxy Saucer Sep is a TOGGLE
Defieant Cloak is a TOGGLE
...all endgame abilities are TOGGLE's

just the Intrepid Special Armor ability... 10 seconds and it shuts down.

why ?!




Actually i just tried the Intrepid for the 2nd time just the last 2 days.
It is just not fun playing with that, i dont feel powerfull in that thing at all.
I put my Science Char in a MVAM Escort and suddenly it's FUN, i feel like i can do some damage!


What good does it do me if i can throw holds and control abilities at Borg Probes in the STF's, if i don't have the DPS to kill them while they are hold?
In an Escort i still have a Tractor Beam from the Borg set, so i can hold at least one probe as needed, but i have enough DPS to shoot everything down on my own.


The Intrepid in STO is just a sad story for me.

The worst part of it is, now they ask everyone who isn't a 600 day vet a serious amount of C-Points for this thing.
