Ship Skins they should make!

So before f2p conversion there used to be ship skin packs for sale in the store.

Now these skins are on the fleet variants of there ships, but there are still ships that need some more skin loving!

Nebula class - How about a new T3 unlock made from Ambassador parts? And a T5 made from Venture Class parts. How hard is this? Not sure but the main assets should already be there, yes?

Heavy Cruiser - Can we get a new 2409 looking 4 nacelle heavy cruiser? Not that the Dakota and Stargazer look bad but compared to more recent ships this vessel looks a bit of a clunker.

Research Science Vessel - Again, some people do like this ship and especially its fleet version really needs a variant that is more modernized.

Long Range Science Vessel - How about a ?warship Voyager? skin? Not for everyone but some people might like it.

The Light Cruiser - This ship really needs a more updated look! Nothing wrong with the Shi Kahr but it doesn?t seem to fit in with the more modern designs. Also this ship could really use a fleet version?

And this might be much to ask for but how about different skins for the shuttle? Now wouldn?t need interchangeable parts but different full body skins. Like the shuttle from Voyager? Or the Argo shuttle from Nemesis? And the captain?s yacht could use some loving too, perhaps looking like The original one from TNG? The unused one from Voyager? The Nova class wave rider? A new design from the Odyssey class?

Anyone else have any ship skins they would like to see? Not new ships mind you, just new parts for ships that already exists.

Yes, more skins!

I want the Allegiance class skin for probably the Assault class cruiser (or maybe the Exploration variants).

A new ship would be great, but there's just not that many combinations remaining, so a skin is a better way to go.
TOIVA, Toi Vaxx, Toia Vix: Bring in the Allegiance class
Toi'Va, Ti'vath, Toivia: Add Tier 6 staple KDF ship types: Carrier and Bird of prey.
Tae'Va, T'Vaya, To'Var: Give us Asylums for Romulans

Don't make ARC mandatory! Keep it optional only!

You keep acting as if the Allegiance class is a canon design and not a fanboy kitbash that CBS could never obtain IP rights for.

Let's not forget Yamaguchi / Zhukov skins for the Ambassador too.

I can dream, no? It's still the nicest clearly federation cruiser I've seen.

Il just go ahead and say I just want more of everything.

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 Constellation is made up primarily of Connie refit parts and it is tier 5, there is no logical reason whatsoever for the no tier 5/6 connie rule.

I'd like to see these things; especially the Nebula and Heavy Cruiser skins. For the Heavy Cruiser, I'd particularly like to see a guppy mouth design inspired by the Chimera and/or Bellerophon.

I'd also like to see a new costume for something that would explain the JJ-prise 'homage' wrecks that can be found in a few places (they have the TOS style deflector, but JJ like nacelles). Not necessarily that particular ship; just something that suggests Starfleet went through a 'retro' phase at some point, that resulted in ships with those features.
Exploration suggestions thread - give it a read

BTW, you'd pronounce it 'Cap'n Manks'

I protest the removal of exploration clusters

Personally I just want them to bring every ship to on-par in terms of skin availability with the Free ships. At the very least, do this for the "Starfleet" designs. I'm OK if they want to limit the "Alien" designs.

What do I mean? ALL the default free ships in STO have a minimum of 3 skin varieties: A ripoff/copy of a canon design (Miranda), a boxy/sharp-edged, militaristic design (Shikahr), and a smooth/curvy design (Centaur).

There are C-store ships out there with only ONE skin, or a nearly-meaningless variation (Nebula, Excelsior, Odyssey).

Some of the Fleet ships gained exclusive access to skins formerly available via skin pack (Nomad, Imperial, Maelstrom, Cerberus), but for the ships with NO skin pack release pre-S6? SOL.

I understand that Cryptic wants new skins to be tied to new ships (hence the Refit ships like Gladius, Sao Paolo, Regent), because it makes more money that way (and IMO is generally better value than a simple skin), but the result of this is that some Fleet ships end up with less value (not counting actual gameplay of course) than others.

In conclusion, I want the following skins for the Fed side:

1. A 4th Fleet skin (or Refit) of the Heavy Cruiser
2. A 3rd, 25th-century style skin for the Excelsior
3. Some new look for the Odyssey. You made 3 variants of the Vesta, why not this?
4. New material selection option for the Atrox
5. Retrofit/Refit/Skin for the Research Science Vessel
6. If you're gonna do a T5 Miranda/light cruiser it had better come with a skin

And on the KDF Side:

1. NEW MATERIALS. That's really all I want. I am SICK TO DEATH of the Green-Bronze scheme and never being able to properly see the paint patterns.
