1. Hello and welcome to MSFC. We are a small and close knitted community who specialises in modding the game Star Trek Armada 2 and the Fleet Operations modification, however we have an open field for discussing a number of topics including movies, real life events and everything in-between.

    Being such a close community, we do have some restrictions, including all users required to be registered before being able to post as well as all members requiring to have participated in the community for sometime before being able to download our modding files to name the main ones. This is done for both the protection of our members and to encourage new members to get involved with the community. We also require all new registrations to first be authorised by an Administrator and to also have an active and confirmed email account.

    We have a policy of fairness and a non harassment environment, with the staff quick to act on the rare occasion of when this policy is breached. Feel free to register and join our community.

    The Romulan Tebok isn't bad either. It helps that the curve on the wings isn't as severe as on the other two Warbirds.

    So the Mirror Invasion event is running on STO. Good lord I hate this event. There was once upon a time that people complained that they ran out of portals and had to wait out the timer. Valid complaint as I was in a few of those matches and it did get boring waiting. It was asked that a trigger be added so that if the last portal closed before the timer expired that it would advance the mission automatically. Instead, the increased the number of portals that can spawn. OK, that could work.....only they did not cap the number of portals that could spawn at one time. So now you can have a screen full of portals that makes it impossible to keep up. They REALLY need to look this over and make adjustments.

    I actually find the Fed one okay. Then again, I do have a weakness for what KJC correctly calls "space whales", considering the Starchaser is one of my favorite designs. Actually, this one could kind of work as a heavier, 25th century version of the Starchaser. Would probably need an appropriately-sized deflector dish, though.
    The Ops variant IMHO clearly works best, with a nicely galaxyish saucer and the nacelle struts slightly bending away from each other. It actually pulls off the four nacelle look quite nicely, especially from the front.

    The problem I have with the designs is that the rear portion of the ship that connects the upper and lower hulls is so small it's almost non-sensical. If they distributed the mass of the forward part of the stardrive between the two, it might look better. I'm fine with space whales if they're designed right.
