Star Trek Online is giving players the chance to design a ship

Like this, but with slightly better lines, hopefully.
The look of ships in Star Trek Online is a big deal; you spend a lot of time flying about in the ships, after all, so you want them to look good. A new carrier is on its way from the design team, but rather than just picking a design and going, the development team behind the game has decided to get the community in on the action. Eight designs will enter, and only one design will be produced as the next carrier in the game.

Players can check out all eight designs for the ship and will be able to vote on their favorites starting later today. The voting will be in single-elimination tournament format, meaning a few rounds of voting between pairs of designs. Check out the candidates and get ready to decide the future of several possible ship configurations.

I’m missing the argument here, this was a playful back and forth over franchises I get the feeling we both love. So… yeah, totally confused by that comment about an argument and “tribalism”.

StClair RicharddeLeonIII *shrug*  Not in my view, I like both SW and ST.  But its inevitable that comparisons be made between similar IPs.

RicharddeLeonIII Tell me we are not still having this stupid argument.
(Humans and our pointless, petty tribalism.)

It’s cool that they’re taking fan input, but I’ve never really cared about carrier starships in Star Trek Online (I’m more of a traditionalist, I guess), so I keep putting off casting my vote.

I do hope that the carrier fans get something most of them enjoy.

RicharddeLeonIII I was just having fun with the speed chart, plus the chart at the bottom of the page that shows ship sizes. I love both of ’em!

I was more counting nonwarp battle speeds. Star trek ships can fight both at sublight speeds and in warp speeds which is impressive. Afaik star wars ships cant fight at warp.
