I wonder why the Sovereign class and some other Federation ships have not received any consistently hullmarkings.

Ships such as the Ambassador class, have excellent markings, but the rest of the ships, especially the sovereign, were not brought to this state. is there still something to be changed or should everything stay the way it is? Probably not, right?

How do you feel about that?

That's because they're the old ships made by Cptn Logan. The Ambassador, Steamrunner etcetra are JamJamz's work. He's put far far more effort into accuracy that Logan. Especially in phaser arrays hazard markings and the strips themselves. Pin striping. RCS.

Just, over all detail is superior quality.
I would absolutely love it if JamJamz remastered all the old Federation starships to his quality. Especially the Intrepid, which, in my own opinion, wasn't one of Logan's best works.... The Galaxy's Stardrive is another notorious one, aswell.

The Sovvy is the way it looks in there movie except the other two.The Ambassador looks similar to the 1001-A except the plyons and warp necelles.

The original ships were rushed out the door to meet the Launch deadline. They're not as detailed or evolved as later ships. Many of the older ships have undergone some tweaking since Launch but there hasn't been a lot of incentive to work on a "free" ship where there's so many C-Store, Fleet Store, and Lockbox ships to work on.
STO is about my Liberated Borg Federation Captain with his Breen 1st Officer, Jem'Hadar Tactical Officer, Liberated Borg Engineering Officer, Android Ops Officer, Photonic Science Officer, Gorn Science Officer, and Reman Medical Officer jumping into their Jem'Hadar Carrier and flying off to do missions for the new Romulan Empire. But for some players allowing a T5 Connie to be used breaks the canon in the game.

I would pay to unlock remasters of the old starships. Especially the Intrepid, Nova, Nebula and Galaxy.
You hear me, Cryptic? *rattles purse* I would pay!

Improved Nebula and Nova would be nice for sure.

Maybe instead of another starship for the next Anniversary event, next year, they can allow captains more flexibility and customization to the current slate of ships we can access now.

And my Sovy tain't no stepchild to nothin. My A2B numbah melts through PvE play, just fine. (And looks good in the Veteran skin, while doin it. :p )

The Sovereign did get an update a few months before F2P went live. The only thing that could make her more accurate is if Jamz tweeks the skin so the hull lines are thinner and tweeks the windows so they match up the Enterprise-E model. Other than that, she is pretty accurate. Only thing better than that is if they come across a hull material that better handles lighting similar to what we seen on screen.
NO to ARC!

Don't forget the pinstripes and lacklustre bussard collectors. More attention to detailing on her black 'delta' panelling around the bridge would be nice too.

Another pet peeve is the torn/poorly laid UVs on the underside of the aft shuttle bay. They appear either as two black triangles, or bright white reflective surfaces, depending on lighting.

It's a 'close, but not quite' on the Sovereign. I live with it happily, as it is still the prettiest of any Assault Cruiser variant.

(Sorry Jamz, you know my opinion on the plucked turkey-slug that is the Regent. )

It can not be that hard but to make a few stickers on the ship. I demand not equal a complete overhaul on the drawing board, although this would be really necessary, but the red stripe with yellow FED logos must definitely be on the ship ...

What the ship really needs would be detailed meshes and a new texture, just as the Ambassador class has. then Sovereign hullmaterial called ... To all Starfleet ships, the same phaser arrays of the same size (Best of the Ambassador) and there the corresponding red marks at the beginning and the end of the array. Unfortunately, my English is very bad, so I know not exactly what you call this semi-circular marks ...
The torpedo launchers and Captain Yacht Bay is much too flat. Which is actually a lot more out of the saucer section.

This is the Sovereign as it should be ...

And this is what we get in STO ...

That can not be their seriousness...

What would you guys think about to start a petition and thus approaching to DStahl?
