Since it is an open secret, the devs will never enhance the Exploration Cruiser to make it a aceptable/ fun ship to fly, so i suggest that we get the possibility to remove the third nacelle from the Galaxy -X and be able to use Galaxy Class ship parts at the Galaxy -X.

Before the "nay" sayers ravish this tread, let me please explain why it could work.
Since the first lockboxes we got certain "Mirror" ships in STO.
For example the Mirror Assault Cruiser looks the same as the Prime universe Star Cruiser while having the same BOFF & Console Layout as the Prime universe Assault Cruiser. (the same for the Recon science + DSSV, Patrol Escort and Prometheus Class)
While no one takes offense at this, i think the same could be said about the Galaxy Class and the Galaxy -X.

I don't know about other people, but i would be really happy if i could make my Galaxy -X be able to look like a Galaxy Class, and since no one opposes that a Star Cruiser can look like an Assault Cruiser and vice versa, i think it would be great for some Galaxy Class fans to have their favourite ship have a bit more tactical value.

Tecnically i can't imagine that this would be too complicated, since both ships are nearly identical except for that stupid looking third nacelle that ruins the whole look and the gracious lines of that ship.

EDIT:
Sorry i forgot, if some friendly dev would decide to realize it, would it be possible to mix Galaxy -R and Galaxy -X ship parts so one could use a Galaxy - X Venture Neck in combination with a Galaxy -X venture Saucer for example?

That would be absolutely AWESOME!



So please devs, give your heart a nudge and make this happen. I think a lot of people would be really happy about this.

The Galaxy and Galaxy-X switching abilities, consoles and layout? That's so stupid it has to work!

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

Not more stupid than every other Mirror ship in the game IMO.

I never got why this is an issue in the first place.
I mean no one complains about the Mirror Universe Reconnaissance Science Vessel look like the DSSV or vice versa, why is this a problem with the Galaxy -X?
It's not that it would be a especially good looking or exceptional strong ship. I don't get why it shouldn't be possible to be able to use it's counterparts appearance, just like any other Mirror ship too.

But of course it's possible to make a problem out of it, just like with anything else.


Since the Galaxy -X will get saucer seperation in the future, i thought it would be a welcome opportunity to unlock normal Galaxy class ship parts for that ship, especially Galaxy Class necks without that stupid looking third nacelle.
(i just hate it, strangely EVERY cruiser in STO has some issue that makes it look either ugly or just plain stupid.)

ugh. Heres an idea pal. Just beg the devs to get rid of the Ensign Engineer on the Galaxy Retro and make it a Universal. they should do the same with the Intrepid and Defiant. Universal Ensigns to kill the unuselessness of them.

Thats a nice idea too, but the problem is they wont do it.
There are threads about this for years now and the devs don't feel to respond to them, even once in three years.


The last thing i heard concerning a Galaxy Class -ish ship is that the Galaxy -X will be getting saucer seperation in the first half of this year. As i already said, i think it will be the LAST opportunity before the devs will completely ignore anything even remotely related to the Galaxy Class.
Maybe some dev (cough) is friendly enough to explain me why this issue is considered a problem anyway.

They already added the Mirror Star Cruiser/Assault Cruiser, the Mirror RSV/DSSV and the Mirror Patrol Escort and Advanced Escort. No one considers the existence of those ships to be a problem, why should it be a problem to make a mirror version of the Galaxy -R and -X, they could even release it as a add on for everyone who bought BOTH ships in the C-Store.
Heck i would even pay 1000 ZEN and more to be able to use Galaxy -R ship parts on my Galaxy -X!

EDIT:
I'm not so sure right now if i had better created this thread in the "C-Store and Promotions" section.

I completly agree with yreodred here, the Galaxy class is my most favorite ship, yet I do not fly it in STO because it is absolutely FAIL.

Cruisers in this game are a bad joke anyway, a Defiant class should not be stronger than a Sovereign class, close maybe, but then again beams in this game are a bad joke too. There is so much fun to be had in STO, but this closed minded system design leaves us with little to no choice and forces us / me to play another ship, which I might enjoy, but don't love.

In the show the Galaxy kicks ass, in STO its a waste of space. Unless you want to tank, damage output-wise the cruisers are no fun.

I would pay 50 dollars to get a tactical version any day!
