Re: Your Star Trek Online Screenshots!

They just released a new Bridge Layout to the Cryptic Store, and I had a few CPoints from when I got the DDE - and I liked the look of this Bridge, so I present the Bridge of the T4 Cruiser U.S.S. Purgatory NCC-91704:

Agreed - the 'Blaze' bridge (aka the STO version of the standard Prometheus bridge) looks particularly nice - went and bought the pack as soon as it went into the C-Store, even though I won't have access to them for aaaaages yet!

Agreed. The Blaze Prometheus bridge is one of my faves. (I love how my helm/tactical officers are only 7m away instead of 18 like my star cruiser bridge.) Two things would elevate it in my opinion, one would be to have my XO's seat next to mine, the other would be to have my other three officers at the unoccupied stations. I'm quite fond of the Voyager style bridges, but if they could go on a bit of a diet and be the size of the Prometheus bridges (23m diameter), they would take my top spot.

Why not, you should be able to put it into any ship, even your Miranda/Shi'kar/Centaur

<Ahem!> That's TOS Constitution, thankyouverymuch!

Didn't know that about C-Store Bridge Packs, although t'be honest, I don't really like the idea of that. With the Prometheus bridges, they're not that far from Excelsior/Constitution-refit bridges anyway (...because it's just a redress of the same set! ), but it just feels a bit wrong to whack one class of bridge into a different class of ship. Gets my canon-sense tingling...

On that note, I'd love to see more canon bridges as C-Store options later on. Definately a TOS-style bridge, as well as the TMP/Reliant bridge, and the TUC/Excelsior/Ent-B bridge styles. Perhaps even a TNG-esque re-vamp of the Excelsior bridge, like the versions seen in Star Trek: Borg and Elite Force II.

Of course, Cryptic would have to put out an Excelsior-class ship to do that...

...hint, hint!

I know that feeling - the originals copies of the ones I posted above are 1680X1050 - I used Irfan view to make resized copies (perserving the aspect ratio) at 640X400 for posting them here. The originals do look a lot nicer though

I put the new Blaze bridge into all of my ships. It is far less canon-breaking to have something so close to actual canon in my ships than to have that stupid 41m (135 foot) diameter star cruiser bridge in my cruisers.

See this statue? It's 135 feet tall. If you laid it down, it would fit within the confines of the C-store star cruiser bridge. Your captain's chair would be very near its belly button and your view screen would be about 15 feet wide and between the statue's feet. For me, that is canon-breaking. Before the Blaze bridge, I would have been begging to have the Defiant or Voyager style bridge for all of my ships. (Though the Voyager and TOS style are my favourite bridges ever.) I'm still not completely satisfied, but I'm going to stop complaining about the scale issues now that I've got a bridge with which I can finally feel comfortable.

=edit=

I've added pictures of the Nomad class and Blaze bridge to the http://startrekonlinestuff.com/ database. I'd post the Blaze pics, here, but I can't be bothered to size them down. :3

Preliminary pics of my Star Hammer refit. Afterwards, I went back and put an Avenger class saucer section on it (just visible in the last pic).

As nice as the Nomad class saucer is, it just doesn't ring my bell. Several positive points include its large size (length and volume) and the lateral torpedo launchers. The torpedoes actually launch sideways from the saucer and arc forward; very VERY nice. Unfortunately, you are still limited to a 90º forward firing arc, so despite the fact that they launch sideways, you cannot fire on ships that are on your flank. However, the saucer's minuses outnumber its bonuses for me. I quite like the fiddly bits all over the Avenger and Vanguard and the large number of escape pods. The Nomad is just too smooth with too few escape pods for my taste.

The Nomad nacelles have a bit of a clipping problem with the Vanguard nacelle struts; but as you can see in the last picture, even with the clipping, the combination of the two looks absolutely elegant. A great counterpoint to the inelegant Avenger hull and saucer. ^.^

Heheh, the star cruiser bridge in the C-store is based on the TMP bridge, exept that it's the size of a circus tent. 43 metres in diameter. You sit slightly aft of the centre, about 18m from your helm and tactical officers. I liked to imagine that my captain kept a bullhorn next to the captain's chair when I was using it.

For klingon bridges, it's easy to imagine that the captains are miked up to a PA system to shout and growl their orders across their giant bridges. (The "Carrier" bridge pack features warehouses with captains chairs in them. 70 metres by 50 metres. Though mine had some nice attack saurs roaming around the lower deck. ^.^ )

That's what Yeoman Rand is for. She doesn't just serve coffee and she needs the exercise.

Re: Your Star Trek Online Screenshots!

In an earlier post upthread; I showed some screencaps of the current Bridge of the U.S.S. Purgatory (NCC-91704); but no screencaps of the ship itself. So without further ado:

















(Note: These shots weren't resized, but cropped from the 1680X1050 Original screencaps.)
