# 1 Constellation Class
03-31-2012, 05:27 AM
I was thinking the other day about a cool ship that could be imported into the game, the constellation class could be sold on the c-store and come with a picard maneuver ability. I think it would be awsome to have in game. Feel free to leave a comment with and ideas of improvements, additions or even ideas of your own

As with most cool ideas in STO it comes down to Tears, err tiers. The constellation probably wouldn't be a tier 5 ship, so it wouldn't be worth buying, except for the console. Which would probably be a fire everything once (ala Fire at will) regardless of target, break sensor contact (ala the photonic decoy console, then add X speed multiplier for y seconds until we're outside os 10 KM, while we can't fire.

Since Cryptic has chosen the tiers completely arbitrarily (there is neither a consistent pattern of age nor size recognizable) the only thing standing in the way of Constellation, Ambassador, K't'inga and Constitution/Exeter/Excalibur is if the devs consider them "cool" enough. So, sorry you are out of luck. Welcome to the club.

Personally I would make a Picard Maneuver console a mix of photonic displacer module and short range teleport with a 5 second damage boost.

.... wait, the Constellation?
Uh, correct me if I'm wrong, but, do we not already have a ship in game that is pretty much that ship? The T3 Heavy Cruiser with the 4 nacelles?
Heck, I think it's even been pointed out that the Stargazer class is essentially the successor to the Constellation class.

On another note, I would like to see the Picard maneuver in-game at some point.

It would make for a interesting high tier engineering or science power. Probably too OP though.

The point is that is not a constellation class any more than the Exeter is a Connie. I have been waiting for a constellation class for 2 years now so that my tier 3 tacks had a decent looking 4 nacelled ship to fly. My opinion of course. I want to fly what I want to fly and you can fly what you want to fly.

It would be amazing to have this ship in-game! Unfortunately, it's waaaayyyyyyyyy to amazing for the Devs to likely put it into the game. They appear to be obsessed with "faction ships".
