Are you saying it didn't take me 5-6 months of effort to get my Mk XII MACO Sniper Rifle?
I'm saying the TR-116 Sniper Rifle pre-order bonus from Target which is the MACO rifle written about in Needs of the Many and is able to shoot through Fluidic Space and Undine Personal shields in that book, is a starter level item that MANY MANY MANY people wanted put on the C-Store when the other pre-order items were put on the C-Store. But it never has been.
Thing is, it's DPS was starter level, but people abused its special properties (especially in ground pvp) to utilize it at high levels effectively.
Where have all you noobs been the past three years?
For this game the Narada would probably be the same size as a Borg command ship. To be honest the thing doesn't look good, it looks like a flying trash heap, a bundle of mangled girders lashed together with an engine stuck on the end and I hope we never see it in game.
I hope that ships never get any more abstract than the Breen ships, those are bad enough.
It's a MACO gun because MACO marines use it. Yes, the TR-116.
That's stretching it quite a bit. Unless you're going to argue that every weapon in the Starfleet ground arsenal is a MACO weapon because a MACO might use it?

Wrong. the TR-116 was created to be an anti-borg weapon. It was abandoned in favor of self-resequencing directed energy weapons (weapons which consequently failed against the Borg, but that's neither here nor there). Those few that were fielded were used by far more than just MACOs.
