STO Mirror Universe Luna U Kidding Me?

Fri Sep 28, 2012, 11:38 PM


Imperial Science Cruiser Singularity by Lord-Nalthren Theirs

Just saw a pic of what STO is calling a Mirror Universe Luna Class. I say thee NO!!!!
The STO LUNA class is still way way off from how the USS is supposed to be.

And even farther off from how I envisioned a Imperial Luna to look like. All it is is here is a Repaint,
NO STO you really messed up with this one.

I would of been more than happy to let you have the I.S.S. Titan Design to go with my U.S.S Titan.

And you wonder why I don't play the game.
Besides the 2 plus hour download and the fact that
I have to use my wife's PC since you won't make a
version that plays on the MAC.

Feel Free anyone who plays and is active on the STO Forums to pass my
distaste for this GOD awful excuse for a Luna class.

Update 10-1-12

Nothing like causing a SH!t storm on Cryptic's forums.  I guess I have people pissed that I would even suggest
getting the Luna fix or having a correct Mirror ship. And I have others supporting me.

I would be happy with a few fixes to the Luna and see the Devs fix some of the other issue that players are
talking about.  

As it is right now I still don't play the game, but I am a big fan.  They have come up
with some great design and some really bad ones, I just would like to see the quality they put
into uniforms put into the ships as well.



Update 10-1-2012 5:48pm

I just got an email from Brandon W. Felczer - Community Manager - Star Trek Online
and I will get back to him with my concerns on the Luna.
It sounds like the Luna may be heading back to the Digital Spacedock in the future, just no stardate yet.

I take that as promising and plan on working with them in every way I can to get her looking right.

I am not sure about the I.S.S. getting retouched, but atleast it sounds like the U.S.S. might get an overhaul.

I don't play STO, or any online game for that matter, but what you describe should be of no surprise to anyone. The people who run online games, in general, have no idea what a franchise like Star Trek is all about to the genuine fans. All they care about is making money, lots of it. Staying true to the vision is unimportant. All that matters is money. And there are countless clueless kids out there more than willing to give it to them.

If I want to game in the Trek universe, I'll use the old FASA ST RPG rules, modifying them for whichever era needed, including the Mirror universe. Real roleplaying games are Old School tabletop ones; computers are for bang-zap. Fun, perhaps, but it's not real roleplaying. That requires people :)

I am not surprised, Cryptic has a one fits all approach when it comes to Ship Textures.
And they do not change Models for their Mirror Ships so they can mass produce them.
So why bother to do anything else with the Luna?
I doubt they even did the research to check if one existed already.

But hey it could have been worse!
they didn't even have the Yellow Textures when the game launched but some purple texture...

bah ^^

but really don't let them get off that easy with the ISS Version.
after all they have put it in a LockBox, that means every single ship that flies around in the game or sits on the exchange earned them a $
i know it is just one of the lower level prices in this lottery system of theirs, but that is no excuse to do sloppy work on it.

I'd at least demand those Nacelles and Sensor Pods of yours, to be made i doubt they will change the textures to something Red, so yellow might be the point where i say OK, but please not placed so randomly.

oh and Saucer Seperation would also be 100% possible in STO,
the Tier 5 Galaxy-Refit has it, Odyssey Class has it, Prometheus has MVAM mode... they have the technology!

they could add it and allow the Tier 5 Galaxy Class *console* to activate it for their money grab.

Looks like we may keep an eye out for it then.

I heard Cryptic did contact you, I hope I was of some help there bringing the attention to Cryptic and the STO Community.

They call that a ship?! I far prefer your renderings of said ISS Luna...and I don't play STO (or any other MMORPG or computer/video game)...
