Is it me or the ships in the first film (uss kelvin) and the second film are similar to the ships you can play in the starfleet command games?

Yes, you're quite right. The starbase as well.

While ST was off the air, in the 1970's there was a number of board strategy games and fan-fic descriptions that filled in many of the holes. Some of those elements found themselves appearing in books.

So no - they didn't steal it from the game. It was part of the legacy already.

And please, no replies from the cannonites.

Similar to the Akula class but not the same. Completely different ships and was made before the film.
KDF Future with Cryptic. Fact.

What Cryptic should consider before releasing anything.

I guess I would be semi-cannonite because I do like the film/tv and the stuff from the games and books even tho I'm not a big book reader.

From Starfleet Battles if thats the name of it that I remember which was like a board strategy game there were so many Klingon ships from that it could potentially flesh out the KDF in the ship design area. Not to mention create some new fed stuff.
