Hi Cryptic,

Love all the great designs you have introduced into the game. I have just one small observation, and believe I am not alone.

Can you perhaps more closely scale the ships relative to their size?

Capital ships need to be capital.

Thanks

If the scale of ships were increased, it would require increasing the scale of pretty much everything.

For example, you can probably imagine the result when many multi-km ships all try to get within 10km weapons range of the same target.

They responded in some of the other hundreds of threads asking this question.

Indeed...

The answer is: We don't know how to scale things... Just look at the hallways.

Well maybe not in thoose exact words... but close.

But... it wouldn't be Star Trek without scaling problems!

The only ship that bothers me is the D'deridex-class Romulan Warbird, that really should look bigger than it does.

Maybe in STO2 they will address the scaling of Capital :p

It does bug a bit, with the Defiant and some of the larger ships.
