They should be more concerned with the REST of the crap going on in this game (or most often, NOT going on) and less about which ships are being flown around by the players.
Honestly, the "CBS doesn't like the idea" line gets tossed out a lot by Cryptic, and it doesn't ring all that true to me.
Compliance with their contract with CBS is not optional. I remind everybody again of the history on Trek gaming licenses; ask FASA and Last Unicorn Games what happens when you fail to comply with your contract.
Oh wait, you can't; they both disappeared not long after CBS yanked their Star Trek licenses for non-compliance.
