There are questionable art issues with the new Constellation.


Red Bussard Collectors: Please give us the option for canonical Black.

Front Hanger Bay Door: Please give us an Option to turn on the canonical force field on the bow (front) door.

Impulse Engine Glow: Please give us option to turn on Impulse Engine glow.

Additional Glows: Please give us an option to turn off the non-canonical red glow at the equipment at the top of the pylons (above the torpedos).

Yes. I wouldn't object to a channel switch much like was offered for Excelsior when it was added to the game. We can choose to illuminate the length of the nacelles per TNG and Voyager or not lit per Search for Spock or Undiscovered Country. As both are correct.

Regarding the forward hanger door, I didn't notice that in Peak Performance (something I've watched recently). Was it shown activated over the close doors in The Battle? I can't recall.

I'm surprised to read that the impulse engines aren't illuminated. Only the canon Nebula saucer was ever given the unique reason to not be.

The name on the top is hard to read and should be bigger.

Uh, there is no "forcefield" on the constellation's forward shuttlebay, or what ever it is

Really? Red glow on it?! Good Lord. It'd be nice if the ship designers actually watched the episode the ship they are making was in. Or noticed that it was the same nacelles from the movie ship (which also didn't glow, btw)
Sometimes I think I play STO just to have stuff to rant about on the forums!

Who knows. Maybe they thought it was a good idea to give it a red glow so it feels feel modernized?

If they was going to fiddle with a canon design, I'm surprised they didn't incorporated options like with the Steamrunner and the Excelsior.

personally, im happy to see a ship where the windows line up with a sensible deck plan.

not happy to see it only have half the agility of an intrepid or prometheus that its similar size to.

this would be nice, though it'd probably mean designing a hanger interior similar to the catbox, and resulting in calls for it to be made an fdc.
t6 cruiser? keep it, i'd rather have aux to dampers 3.
as it turns out, an intrepid would lose a fight with a connie.
and thats canon.

Only when they're open. . . And who's to say that forcefield isn't on the other side of the door.

Only when they are open. But that applies to every ship, and none in game currently allow us to toggle open the shuttlebay doors, so I'm not sure why you think this ship should be unique.
