# 1 NX-01 Doug Drexler Refit
07-03-2012, 02:21 PM
This idea was once brought up on the old forums, but I'm posting it again here with some additional images. Just wondering what the Dev's official word is on this?

For those who don't know, Doug Drexler was a Visual Effects Artist involved with the various Star Trek TV series for several years.

It's supposed to have a bit of a retro look due to the era where it comes from, and the "experimental" (NX) nature of the design. It is afterall a stepping stone between ENT and TOS.

Additionally, the design would have appeared sometime during the Romulan War, which could account for its "rushed" prototype appearance.

What do you think? Could this possibly be added someday?

Probably not...

Seeing how it's taken Them almost a YEAR to get the Aventine to a point where it "Might" be in game...

I can't imagine Them wanting to pursue something like this.

Though "I Personally" would pay 2000 ZP's to be able to fly it In-Game.


I'm hoping in a year or two They decide to set up a TOS through TMP Exclusive Era Server...

This would be a Perfect Ship for that.

Yeah, it would be another legal hurdle since the NX-Refit is owned by Doug Drexler.

And if they did add it, surely it would be a Utopia-Refit and probably added to Tier 2.

I'd much rather have this one in the game than the "Akiraprize".

Though... that "Exclusive Era" server is sounding better all the time.

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.

That would pretty much have to be a completely separate game.
