Next Iconic Interior

illustriousqillustriousq Member Posts: 37 Arc User
I was reading through the Voyager Interior Blog when I came to this sentence at the end of the blog:
We really hope you enjoy the Intrepid interior, and you can look forward to us bringing you more iconic spaces in the future.

That got me thinking as to what else is considered an Iconic Space/Interior?

If we were to go by the definition that was provided by the blog, with the release of the Voyager Interior we now have 3 Iconic Interiors in the game.
  • Constitution Class—TOS Era USS Enterprise
  • Defiant Class—DS9 USS Defiant
  • Intrepid Class—USS Voyager

So they are ships that are locations/ships that are well known, extremely well photographed, and is something that the devs could feature throughout the game.

Currently, only the Intrepid Interior is used heavily in the game right now. The TOS Connie is currently only used for Foundry missions, and the Defiant's bridge is used in a total of two missions (for cut scenes) leaving the rest of that interior as a player ship interior.

I fully expect the Defiant interior to be used heavily if/when the Cardassian Front Missions are remastered for the game like the Klingon Front missions were.

But, what could possibly come next? What could be added to the game that is so Iconic that it could be used everywhere without too much fuss?

Well, 4 interiors come to mind immediately.
  • Galaxy Class—TNG USS Enterprise, NCC-1701-D
  • Sovereign Class—TNG USS Enterprise, NCC-1701-E
  • Constitution Class—TOS Movie Era USS Enterprise, NCC-1701/NCC-1701-A
  • NX Class—Enterprise, NX-01

Two of them are really easy to incorporate into the game. Namely the Galaxy Class and the Sovereign Class.

Both ships are still in very active service in 2410, and haven't had their interiors updated to the new building codes (like the Miranda has been).

Realistically, those two interiors could be added almost everywhere you run into those two ship classes in game without too much trouble.

Plus there are the Variants for Galaxy Class Bridge and Decks that have been seen throughout the series.
  • TNG Season 1
  • TNG Season 2—7
  • Yesterday's Enterprise
  • All Good Things Future Enterprise D (Galaxy Dreadnought)

For the Sovereign Class, we can have Standard, and Assimilated (thank you Star Trek First Contact!)

The Movie Era connie and the NX-01 interiors would require them to be either missions that take place on museum ships (might be interesting to see that Museum that Deanna Troi mentioned in the Series Finale of Enterprise) or in a time travel story arc.

Most of the assets already exist for the 23rd and 22nd century Starfleets (and their opponents) so really it shouldn't be too much of a stretch to see these done.

The problem is they couldn't be reused afterwards since those assets are very period specific. And constantly either going back to the past or having the past come to the future could become repetitive very quickly.

So, what are your thoughts?

    The next one is probably 2-3 years away ... and it'll only happen if there is going to be an Galaxy/Sovereign/NX - related Content update in which they can use it ...

    Id like to see these interiors used in a ground event/mission of some sorts. At this point they are just eye candy and bling.

    Galaxy Class interior would be awesome.

    Galaxy class would get my vote.

    Though I suspect a Gamma Quadrant expansion will be on the cards first, so DS9 will get the attention.

    I want to see either the Galaxy Class Battle Bridge or either the Enterprise-A bridge and interior or the Excelsior bridge

    Next bridge pack pretty much has to be the Galaxy Class. I'd like to see the NX01, personally; but the Ent-D bridge is as iconic and important as ship interiors come. Frankly, I'm surprised they've let it slide so long.

    I want the NX interior, exactly to canon detail and layout.
    STO would have been better as a Stargate MMO than it is as Star Trek. Go figure.

    Those are basically all the same set, aren't they? just redecorated. Would be easy to do in game, since they just need to build one with wiffeent consoles and LCARS.

    Main Engineering is Drastically different on the original movie connie, as is the rec center, and shuttle bay, and transporter room, and bridge.

    The hallways though are redresses.

    Uh...considering the Feds already have more T6 ships than both factions put together...and three iconic interiors, compared to the KDF which have NONE...

    ...would a simple, compact BoP interior with NO TURBOLIFTS be too much to ask before even more Fed content gets added?

    Ya, that would be too much for the feddies to stomach.

    I wouldn't mind having Kirks converted B'rel bridge tho. Could even make it cross faction.

    The original Connie through the first 3 movies was drastically different. The ent-a in STV and VI had a redress of the TNG engineering set.

    Logged on today and finally got my fleet Armitage. Went to the ship customize to get the Intrepid interior and got sticker shock.

    Dear lord, no wounder interiors don't sell. They ether look like TRIBBLE or are part of a bundle of stuff witch drives up the price.

    I would love to have a Enterprize E interior, and will pay for it. But I am NOT paying for a bundle of stuff I don't want.

    i would rather they didn't waste man hours on more pointless "fluff" and the interiors are just that they are a waste of time and resources.

    get rid of the mindless grinding make reputation unlocks for accoutns not per char.

    What about the 2364 Battle Bridge design?

    Any of the below:

    Enterprise A and/or Excelsior. I want something more updated than the Connie but not a rehash of the Galaxy which is what I feel we have in general and these work nicely.

    Isn't the one for the Defiant basically horribly wrong and needs to be replaced? That was my impression at least.

    K'tinga for the KDF.

    Bird of Prey for the KDF.
