Possably one of the most historic figures alive today in regards to space travel has sadly left us today. RIP Neil...

I wonder if the next Cryptic ship class added to the game could be called the Armstrong class as a tribute to him.

Sad day for the world.


And I agree, be great if Cryptic could do somekind of Tribute. Like a ship named after him, an Apollo pet or Trophy.

I think an Armstrong class would be a wonderful tribute for one of humanity's greatest explorers. Make it so, Cryptic!

That's a good idea. He is too great of a national hero to just have one ship named after him.
It is sad that we are losing heroes of his generation. The people we admire today don't measure up. Remember, when he landed on the moon the instruments and computers on the spacecraft had less computational power than a graphing calculator today.

Or perhaps an NPC ship in orbit around Earth SpaceDock called the USS Armstrong (Luna class ofcourse!)

They should make a moon map with the landing side of Apollo 11 and a new memorial plague at Starfleet academy .

I think Cryptic shoud try to do something in his honor. IF Cryptic actually makes a ship, I think it should be a nice free-be to be honest. I know in Star Trek Armanda II there was an Intrepid Class named Armstrong.

I think if I change from my Odyssey I might name my next ship after Neil Armstrong.


It is a very sad day.
EXPLORE.

Yeah, an Armstrong class or even just the U.S.S. Armstrong would be an amazing thing to have in the game.
