Re: Star Trek Online Discussion Thread (now free to play!)

I'm just wondering, what's the 'legality' of using ship designs that have been in computer games made by other games? If CBS (or whoever holds the Star Trek copyrights) owns the right to use whatever ships designs that have ever been in a Star Trek game, would you guys reckon they should start bringing in other classes for extra variety?

I can imagine the Romulans for one could do with extra variety (the Shrike and Griffon classes would be welcome additions). It would also help the possibility of other factions becoming playable if they have the variety to sustain them, rather than just having the cannon fodder/cruiser/battleship trio of ship classes that seem to exist for non-playable factions.
