Yes, the dev's hate TNG ships so much that the Nebula is one of the best science ships, or even ships period, in the game.

Or in other words: prevent a s**tstorm on the forums when someone managed to s**ew up his purchase complaining it was Cryptic's fault...like they always do.
It was also because they could not find a way to charge people a second time for the Gal-X saucer sep.
The minute they released this pack, someone like me who owns all of the galaxy class ships could simply take the saucer sep console from the Gal-R and put it on the X, the devs didn't want that so they cancelled it...

There never *WAS* a Galaxy-X saucer sep. It says it can't be done in the Gal-X description, they glued them together when they added the lance. The screenshots you allegedly saw of it were obvious fakes done in photoshop. It was never real. And the truth is, I don't think there ever *WERE* any screenshots, even. Just screenshots of "screenshots". By making it a "secondhand" screenshot, the people showing it were able to disguise the poor quality of the shoopwork and fool you into believing this was ever real in the first place.

It was also talked about in interviews with several podcasts. I believe it was on STOked specifically that Geko said the lance would basically become shorter range and wider arc, like a pulsewave rifle in space. It was even addressed in a post-F2P Ask Cryptic, but the answer wasn't hopeful (technical problems, lower priority than new ships).

So, yeah, you're right on one count: It was a photo of a monitor and not a screenshot. At the time a lot of the devs were doing that, though, and seeing how many things we saw that way are now in game, it's hard to call it just poor photoshop work.

Where does it say that?

And even if it did, descriptions can be changed. The only thing that's stopping the Galaxy-X saucer-sep is technical issues

The Nebula is NOT the Galaxy, it's the ugly little sister ship, which is more useful and in a certain way better than the Galaxy. If that's no sign of their refusal to TNG i don't know.
Besides the Nebula, they really seem not to like TNG very much.

- Galaxy Class the most teethless cruiser in the Game. (even the D'Kora, Galor and Excelsior class have more firepower in STO, althrough they are from the same time period or even older)
- TNG phaser pistols (The Cobra Phasers) are just Stun and wide beam, Compression phaser pistols have different design. (Phaser pistols are the only pistols featuring two completely different models)
- TNG (series) uniform is made very cheap, blurry and looks just bad.
- TNG (series) Combadge much too big, while the TNG movie/DS9/Voy Combadge is much smaller and looks better. (the funny thing is that there was a smaller version already in the game, but the devs removed it in favour of a much bigger one, lol)


OT: i think the saucer Seperation for the Galaxy -X is going to come somewhen in the Future. (I can't remember where i read it.)


Thank you for reading.

The Pack was created for people to buy the Galaxy class in the first place, the reason it was cancelled was because the system would not allow you to buy the pack if you owned any of the ships in the pack.

the separating galaxy X and new separating tech is being held up because of the venture skin. the neck is at a lower elevation so to speak, and is incomparable with the odyssey tech at this moment. instead of releasing the galx sep with the clunky old tech, they wanted to release the new tech for both galaxy, and the difference in neck height from the venture is holding it all up

the pack was canceled because too many people owned 1, some, or all the ships already, the pack would be useless to them and the sep tech still isn't ready

In short, they have no clue how to do it.

See, THIS is yet another reason I don't believe a word they say. We have been lied to far too often for them to be credible, unless you are hopelessly naive and gullible. Again and again they offer cake, and again and again, the cake is a lie.
