It`s too bad they couldn`t do an Upgrade to The Intrepid where You could LAND The Ship like they could in The Series!

Voyager did landed 2 or 3 times on the series. The intrepid should be able to land on some exploration missions!

Problem is, you'd be left wondering why smaller classes of ship can't do the same - for example, if the Intrepid class can land, why not the smaller and lighter Nova-class?

When was that? I don't recall any episodes where the Defiant landed.

Logically it would make sense that the ship could land, but I don't believe it ever did so on screen.

There are none.

There are landing struts on the MDS, the Defiant is already a problematic ship with the mysterious "deck 5" that according to the MSD does not exist, size inconsistencies and the Lazarus effect (AKA reusing old footage when the ship was destroyed and the new one had a different registry number).

The real answer is the producers did not knew it had landing struts and since we never seen a White Star landing on B5 ...

The Nova Class actually could land. The tech's show landing struts in the underside of the 2ndary hull. Actually the Defiant could ALSO land on a planets surface and be used as a base in the original blue prints. Only b/c of production cost is why we never saw it.

But this lends the question again.. where would you land? There really is no point in doing so in this game.

EDIT: my bad f2pdrakron, i should have read all the post before i said anything... i basically repeated just what you said..
