I had a idea for a new escort, Cruiser and science vessel . Wanted to know how can I submit my designing and ideas.

For example like if there was a new level cap for a few levels have a story line base off of M A C O and the honor guards front line missions

I don't think cryptic want's you too...

If you submit somthing, they reject it, and then later design (intentionally or unintentionally) somthing that looks slightly like it, you can claim they stole your idea and force them to pay you (worst case scenario, I know)...

Yep.

Same with TV studios. I wrote a story for DS9 back in the 90s... just a stupid kid back then. Went on about how cool it would be to see a story about how a pacifist society like the UFP would wage war for it's own survival.

Then they did the Dominion War arch. They sent back my manuscript 'Unread', and cited that exact reason you mentioned above.

Well, why not make your ideas in a computer graphics program, post the link on the forums, and then submit to Cryptic, that way you can prove it was your idea.

Cryptic is considering tier 6 since so many people are ranking up to VA so fast. I drew up designs, haven't made them yet.

That is exactly the reason why they DO NOT want people to submit their work (I am actually sure it says that you are not to submit things to them in the EULA).

If people can proove "I had that idea first", then Cryptic are significantly more likely to avoid using anything even remotely similar, to avoid a lawsuit or lengthy negotiations with the artist/CBS.

Oh and... I highly doubt we will ever see T6 ships... Unless of cause Current T5 ships get an upgrade option... Imagine the rage if all those people who bought T5 ships and Costumes suddenly become obsolete... We are past the point where they can add T6... It would slit the throat of STO.
