Just my view but I dont see hardly any ships except maybe the romulans as being very canon at all in the entire game.Let's not even discuss the ship size issues.I mean look at the feration for example..I dont recall any galaxy class looking like the one in the game..it looks like a cheap plastic model that's been beat up a bit.The sovereign(not my favorite enterprise at all..not even by any stretch of the imagination..)looks awful...blurry,colors are off,just what else can ya say?...BOTF is more canon and it was made in 1999 and isnt even a full 3D game..The feds space station that's in the game..I have never seen it in any of the shows..???..I have not purchased Legacy yet..but I hope it has more realisim concerning the ships,stations,etc than Armada does..or I'll be skipping it.Not really to concerned whether it's like armada in every way or not..but it should atleast look believable.You can tell some of the ships were just guessed at in armada...I dont recall any of the borg ships,staions,etc in any of the shows,movies looking that green or appearing to be made with sewing pins and dirty aluminium...lol
Lemme get this straight. You are saying the game isnt canon because of its graphics. Not because of 20 other reasons i can think of off the top of my head? Am i missing something here? Btw i know you started helpin Freyr with the upgrade project so i thank you. but i think you need to take a look at the rest of the game before you call the graphics not canon.

Dontai;3515749So many problem that need to be fixed.
They have been fixed, go and find some of the thousand's of mods out there.

1.me helping freyr had nothing to do with this post.?? or does it?? what am i missing here?
2.the game cant be believable if the first thing you pay attention to doesnt look right.
3.i was stating the most obvious thing,which to me is the way it looks.i know there are other issues.
4.i have taken a look at the game in every aspect and still say the graphics are not canon.they just arent.
5.to me if what you are seeing doesnt atleast slightly remind you of what you know this probable universe of beings,etc to be.then it wouldnt matter if the engine was gold..atleast to me anyway.
dontai's post is a bit out of order(meaning count order)..and yeah dontai i agree with you on the points you made...the show enterflop,let's not start on deep splooge nine,or that last two movies..and star trik vaginer...tng was gold..but to me they smoked way to much space crack or something and started retro tripping,weird delta missions that were boring,life on a craptacular space station..whew..anyway good night.
armada 2 is as cannon as Enterprise the tv show, it is about has cannon has dropping a Star destroyer in to the trek reaility Or having kirk fighting ewoks. Their so many cannon proplem that i cant even count them. Akira cant burst fire and fire only one torp, borgs have sheilds and use klingon weapons, 8472 use klingon weapons, heck borg station is lame. not cannon at all. Some and most station i can over look, ant like their alot of stations on trek any way. The graphic i cant over look, they look like a hunk of junk. Romulan war bird is way to small. (spose to be twice as long as galaxy class and three times has strong) War bird is heavily under powerd. The sovern is far to under powerd and it built like it was built in kirks time. All ship die to easy. Definets doesnt even have torps. So many proplem that need to be fixed.
Who cares about canon? What's important is that you have fun playing the game. If you need better textures, download some good mods. McCoy: "The words aren't important, Spock. What's important is that you have a good time singing." --Star Trek: The Final Frontier
As ludwig said, download some mods to change what you dont like. Ok the original isnt so cannon but its fun anyway. Hell, i never even considered things like whether the Akira can burst fire or not. If i want an Akira i build it. My main mod as some nice newer models that replace the crappy ones and some totally non-cannon ships in it as well. Its FUN.
Hello: Gavin is right, if you want better graphics download some of the hundreds of amazing mods, or keep doing what Freyr, you and I are doing, revamping the stock game. Solving the size issue is as easy as to change a number in the ODF using notepad, and it is right is some ships are new to the Star Trek universe because it will add more fun and new possibilities to the game, it is obvious that the producers needed a Frigate for the Federation but it is nothing wrong in creating a totally new ship (the cool Aegian) instead of putting a known ship because they knew that the community would began making models of their own (if that's not the case then why are some many exporters for making new models ourselves?). I really enjoy playing the game, and I like the stock models, they could be better: YES, but they were made to make every PC happy while playing the game knowing that Armada 1&2 are games of big fleets interacting and battling. I like the game the way it is, that's why I revamp them, it is fun to change some minor details while keeping the models provided for us, don't get me wrong, I admire the modders and moddellers because they make such wonderful things, many, many of them I cannot do. But I dislike people just saying how things are wrong just for placer. Please nobody get me wrong, but I think everybody is free to play or not the game and change everything we want, for me, I guess I'll play some Armada2, since I really like the game and I enjoy so much playing. And I could try making some maps myself, there are such wonderful environments that rae almost unused.... sounds like a plan for me :) Thanks for reading.
Indeed the graphics are not all thet realistic but look at it like this. We get to say: "I did a better job than the people who went to school for four years and made this game"
lol true double A..true
