R.I.P. Neil.

I say they make a statue of him and put it in Starfleet Acadamy with a dedication plaque to one of the men who have boldly gone where no man has gone before.

Tumorboy, make it so!

I agree an Armstrong Class ship would work indeed. This is a sad day as he was one of the pioneers to Space.

This would be a great way for the game to remember him. Even a plaque mentioned him in the Academy would be good too.

Just last week I was trying to get a 1/6 Neil Armstrong after seeing some pics of it when someone mentioned wanting to use it as The Impossible Astronaut with a new 11th Dr. Who figure. I got outbid on ebay and now I see someone posting one for $400 I wish I had won last week

I remember watching the landing while staying up late and eating my cake and ice cream after my birthday party as a youngster, it was the best thing ever Thank you for that memory Neil, and Godspeed.



some pics of the figure

I second that emotion! I remember as a kid watching the moon landing... one of the most awesome moments ever!

Didn't he punch one of those goofy nutjobs that claim the landing was faked a few years back when the idiot tried to confront him? GOOD JOB!

My family has a saying "Dance or Die"

This man danced among the stars, he will be missed.

I agree tho, we need a U.S.S. Armstrong flying around ESD as a tribute. Another poster mentioned making it a Luna class vessel, I agree with this as well.

Make it happen Cryptic
I'll stop kicking that horse when the bugs fixed. Until then as a paying consumer, I will voice my opinion.

Yeah, this would be relatively simple to do, as well. I second this motion.

I like the idea someone posted of making a map on the moon at the landing site. Also the idea of a Armstrong class ship has alot appeal but I am not as keen on seeing a U.S.S. Armstrong in orbit as it should be out exploring the great unknownnot maintaining orbitseems like it would take away from the legacy to me.
I suppose the only issue with the map would be if there is a lunar colony on the moon in which case make the whole colony map and place a statue on the site.
Peace be with you Mr. Armstrong
