4th Class of Federation Starship - any ideas?
 
Since the Klingons got a unique Carrier class added to their standard ones (Bird-of-Prey, Raptor, and Battle Crusier), I'm wondering what kind of unique class could be given to the Federation, if or when Cryptic decides to add one? (it doesn't have to be a Carrier, that would only make the Klingon players mad)

Right now, we have Cruisers, Escorts, and Science Vessels. What kind of class could the Federation use, especially since it's in the middle of war?

And please, no aruguments about the fact that the Feds have more content then the Klingons, that's not what this thread is for.

Medical Ships? As a explorer/diplomatic fleet first and defense as a necccasity of life, I can see such a class of ship existing in the star fleet ships of the line.

The Nebula refit is unique in that it's a cruiser/science vessel hybrid rather then a true science vessel. I assume any Akira refit done will probably be an escort/cruiser hybrid rather then a standard escort update. I'm not sure the game needs any more specific class ships: IE, it would be cool for the Feds to have a carrier but it's not really necessary.

I think the feds seem to be getting "Hybrid" ships like the Excelsior and Nebula. Expect to see an Escort with and Ltc Science station sometime in the near future.

Those probably fill the "unique" ship space for the federation.

Dreadnought - We already have the Galaxy-X - what about the Jupiter class, or something less ugly?
Frigate - Half escort/half science. Light and packs a punch like an escort, but has support abilities.
Scout - Super light, fast and nimble, with emphasis on gathering intel, and maybe debuffs. Think VEnture class from Insurrection.

Anyone else notice the Jupiter class in Omega Fleet was chenged to a Gal-X?

Yeah. Makes me wonder if it's getting removed from the game entirely.

a dreadnought of some type. slow moving, lots of weapons (5 fore and 5 aft?) and lots of hull etc but very few Boff stations.

Make it a real monster just lacking in abilities.

lets be honest here no one really liked it that much. personally i just felt having much larger nacelles would have made it look much better.

i wonder if they will change the dreadnought from the klingon version of the minefield fleet action, to a galaxy x as well, if not already done so?
