Puts it in perspective if nothing else.

Having them on the nacelle cap would be better then where they are now, but the back of the saucer would be more trek feeling to me.

The earlier post by the dev said the OPs links were not canon, are those considered canon?

They are both role play forums so I would venture to say "no". The links I have posted containing Steamrunner images (with the exception of one) however are cannon.

Yeah, I was iffy about it too. The only reason I used it was because of the sources sited but even fans can modify something.

Ugh screw you lightwave, that ship deserved so much more screen time.
The Somraw, K'tinga, D'Kyr, D7, Kumari, Xindi carrier, Xindi escort, and the T'Varo are all older than the Constitution Refit and yet they are tier 5. The rule needs to change.

This is true, and those sources are all exceptionally good books but they are lacking the kind of in depth detail about the Steamrunner that I really feel she deserves and that we quite honestly could use for this debate.

And at this point its pretty much going to be a lot of us fans speculating and sharing our own opinions, I know I've made mine pretty clear lol. I just truly believe moving the impulse engines to the saucer section would give her a true Trek feel and would be doing her justice, the other things likes registry lighting and such are like the extra cherry on top. Lol.

I think everyone in favor of the move to the saucer made some pretty convincing arguments.

Should we hold our breath?

I hold faith that jamjamz is still watching this thread so I vote yes.

We've made passionate and thorough arguments, we've stayed on topic (for the most part), this hasn't turned into an endless rage/flame thread like some of the others, and I think we've made our case as to what we as players and as of fans of Star Trek want for and from this remarkable ship. Impulse engines on the saucer (and off the pylons) and registry flood lights being the prime two (I'd love a fleet ship version as well but one thing at a time).

May as well work off this and make a new C-Store Variant with a new skin. Some people may like the impulse engines on the pylon.

So Steamrunner Variant using one of the models as a reference. New skin, maybe a new support console. Or even make a fleet variant of it.
