Cryptic is getting better and better at putting these babies out there. This is a huge landmark for the game, way to go ship team, the attention to canon sources is really amazing, but it would be nice to have the yamaguchi variant available, and maybe those blurry torpedo launchers too.

I remember being really confused while building the old amt/ertl model for the ship, that extra shuttle bay blew my mind after going through the instructions again after completion. Sorting through the differences between refits must have been tough. Someday I hope she gets those low rider pylons and the tng esque buzzard collectors.
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.

If there are any canon resources out there that have these two features, post them in this thread and I will pass them along

Here is a very interesting image, at a closer-up view of the Torp Launcher...

Is it "canon" with the launchers above the deflector? I don't know, however it shows a clear cut view of the torp launcher at much better clarity than the poster who circled them on the TNG model.

Maybe they could do a very minor 'passive' transform. When in combat/red alert a plate recesses a bit and slides back to reveal the launchers, not in combat it covers back over. Or make it trigger-able, but still auto open in combat.

Something like that would satisfy the canon look of the ship, while still providing for launchers. After all, we never saw it fire torpedoes, so who's to say it wasn't there? (I know it was left off the studio model by mistake, but those torpedoes would have to shoot from somewhere)
