And the forums don't represent the majority of the playerbase. You said that yourself. I'm still going to give the benefit of the doubt that the people who want a T5 Excalibur/Vesper/Exeter do not outnumber the people who want a T5 Connie. Based simply on the fact it's an iconic ship, and the ship of Kirk.
But I'm done with this argument. You have your opinions, I have mine. I don't think we can persuade each other to think otherwise.
I love the Connie, the Movie connie to me is the best looking ship of all the ships in Star Trek, but as much as i love it, i don't want to see a T5 version of that ship, and any true star trek fan knows why we can't have a T5 connie...BECAUSE THEY WERE PHASED OUT. TNG, and DS9 you never saw a connie...well you did when they went back in time but during the war no connnies, plenty of Miranda's that got blown up with one shot, but no connies. STO already pushed its luck by having the Connie in the game, so i can't see it being a T5 ship, and i hope they dont, but i would not mind if they put the Exeter as a T5 cuz that ship is pretty good looking, and looks better then TMP connie in the game we have, cuz it looks nothing like the connie we seen on screen.
Plus why do all the fleet ships not have a 2409/25th century design? Instead all you did is change the colour and add neon lights on the edge, will we ever see improvements to the ships and not just the stats and boff stations.

Actually, there was apparently a Connie refit at Wolf 359 (link). And the USS Olympia (link) may have been one as well.

One of the devs mentioned a hypothetical "T5 Miranda of Doom" once.
"With the first link, the chain is forged. The first speech censured ... the first thought forbidden ... the first freedom denied ... chains us all irrevocably."
This practice is absolutely ABSURD, I have the retrofits and for 1 extra console and 10% boost in stats... I'm already attacking STF's with ease, why would I want to make it easier?
U WANT me to cough up another 500 Zen? Ahem I can tell you now where to stick that request, the words im looking for are very colourful but u'll have to settle with "the nearest singularity" Tier 6 is a fad gimmick, Unless they actually make the skill cap higher and the enemies stronger "which is highly doubtful in the 3 years its been live already"
Its not worth my time or hassle, I'm gonna help my fleeties get their ships but the grind way, PWE aint touching my wallet until something drastic changes.. ALL I saying now to other fleet founders, if someone wants a tier 6 all grind the stuff together.
I really do hope they pull the IP license and cryptic have a wake up call in how they should of been all along. They need a back bone tbh
Since the PWE overseers stepped in, well lock box bonanza **** to get me to buy buy buy.. Umm Nah them tin cases are airlocked I'm not stupid.
I got a full time job and I intend to keep it, but not playing this over 39 hrs a week to satisfy PWE in their hostile interferance with the game.
and I truly do no believe a utter word in any statement from a dev or blog developement snip, They seem too excited and perky about all changes and upcoming "lack of content", I'm like that in work im paid to smile and get the customer to buy the product.. I see right through it everyone else should too.
