i am currently a little confused with two of the ship classes, they are the Stargazer class and the Constellation class. if i am correct i thought that the USS Stargazer was a Constellation Class cruiser. so it stumped me when i saw the class Stargazer, because surely if the Stargazer Class is based on captain Jean-luc Picards USS stargazer the two classes will look identical???
any comments? did anyone get to see the difference in these two in the beta?
The USS Stargazer was indeed a Constellation class ship in its day. The USS Enterprise was a Constitution class ship in its day. Someone said that some EU books or comics or something claimed that at a certain date all or some ship classes were renamed for either thier first or best example of the old class. The also told me that the old Constitution class was renamed the Enterprise class.
I myself am sticking with the old school, the Stargazer was a ship and the Constellation was a class of ship that included the Stargazer.
Writers should be forced to do research when writing about established things. Its thier fault the colors of uniforms were changed in TNG with red as command and gold as engineering.
but in there is no Reference to what i know of in any star Trek series of a Stargazer Class? It seems made up my Cryptic? there is only one Reference to the USS Stargazer from the series, not a cruiser Class.
and if the Constellation class was renamed to the Stargazer class there would be no need for both classes in the game? so this cant be the case either. tho it is a plausible idea.
i do agree with Hatu tho, is this is just an error on cryptics part? it may show they haven't fully kept to the star trek universe and seem to have made changes? whether by accident or on purpose?
