How 'bout we give the old Heavy Cruiser some love with a C-Store ship?

USS Constellation
NCC-1017-B

Commander rank
Heavy Cruiser

Hull Points: 26000
Crew: 500
Impulse Mod: 1.5
Shield Mod: 1.0
Turn Rate: 8 degrees/sec
Consoles: 3 Eng, 1 Sci, 2 Tac
Devices: 4
Weapons: 3 Fore, 3 Aft
BO slots: ENG (Lt.Comm & Lt.); SCI (Lt.); TAC (Lt.)

Special: Micro-Warp Console (something like the sub-space jump console. Jumps your ship 5 forward, while leaving a "photonic" duplicate in your place that people are targeting for a second or two). Basically a "Picard maneuver."

For art, I was thinking they could use the old Perpetual Excalibur art and just mirror the secondary hull and nacelles above it to create the 4 nacelle silhouette of the Cheyenne/Constellation class.

1. Her descendants are already in the game as the Heavy Cruiser.
2. It is not the warp nacelles that determine how a ship perform in slipstream.

I understand that the Heavy Cruiser is, itself, a descendant of the Constellation-class.

I suppose I was hoping for a more updated, 2409-type, skin of the Heavy Cruiser, a design that doesn't appear to see much use among Captains these days.

Additionally, a C-store buy would reduce the Fleet version's cost from 4 fleet mods to 1.

As for 4 nacelles not making slipstream go for longer, I see your point, as the slipstream is more a function of the deflector array. Perhaps something like a bonus to the Driver Coil skill?

Constellation and Ambassador classes are the only mainstay ships of Star Trek that are not in the game.

It would be nice if they would just add a Constellation class skin for free to the existing low level and fleet versions of the ship.

The KDF are the ones who deserve the new ship this time as the Feds just got the Vesta

I would say K'Vort.
