USS Excelsior Texture Error

There seems to be something weird above the Excelsior's deflector, I presume this is a texture error. Can it be fixed?0t54n3st0tah.png

  • The 2 colored areas under the Secondary Hull are missing, possible it's related to the above (hull texture is rotated 180 degrees?) The middle bit it likely supposed to be in the deflector recess.
  • And (aside from the Voyager episode "Flashback") the original Excelsior's nacelles never glowed Blue, that was a DS9-era thing. In all the TOS Movies with Excelsior, her nacelles were dark, even at warp.
  • Don't know if they will change it, just like the 1701-A outboard nacelles are blue in game, when they shouldn't be.
  • And the 1701-A has Red in the nacelles at the front in STT, which is wrong, as it never had Bussards like the 24th Century ships. Real simple fixes they could make to improve things... Sigh.
  • Star Trek Online is gradually doing a massive ship update program, vastly improving the original assets in the game. A shame that STT can't do something similar. The 1701-D in STT is atrocious.

    For some reason the Timelines crew seem adamant about making TOS-Movie-era ships' nacelles blue. They did the same thing to the 1701 refit. A shame, because those ships are striking with the matte black nacelles.

    I wonder if they got that blue from the Diamond Select Toy model. On mine, the nacelles light up blue.

    This is known, I do not have an ETA for a fix.

    Also the text on the starboard outboard and port inboard sides of the nacelles is reversed.

  • Many of the ships have the reversed text on one of the nacelles. I figured it was a bug in the engine.

    But on my iPad Pro 11, the ship looks like this, which makes me sad.

  • And the underside Shuttlebay or whatever that it is opposite the Deflector is lit Red, should be blue, or dark.

    Is this recurring?
  • I believe this happens first time equipping the new ship. After a restart, it looks more normal.

    On iOS and on Facebook via Firefox, the Excelsior deflector dish is just white with no blue gradient. Is this normal?

    And the nacelles, as pictured earlier in the thread, should be black, but I realize this is an editorial choice.

  • On Android the dish is also pure white. Timelines' promotional artwork (top of thread) showed it with a blue dish, so it must be something in the various platforms that is causing the white dish?

    The Prometheus also has a white dish ingame and should not be.

    It’s also an all-white dish on Facebook. Is this an art direction choice or an error on multiple platforms?
