Looks like a Cardassian ship with a couple nacelles slapped on.

I'm curious as well. I'm hoping for a refit rather than a ship skin. http://memory-alpha.org/wiki/Nova_class. Perhaps, if you go by this...it could be the first fed sci vessel with an LTCdr Tac slot.

You and me both. I want it to be like the Voyager:Endgame one. The actually Rhode Island type Nova Class vessel. I don't want it to be the Rhode Island type in name only.

It would give me a reason to level up my science captain.. I don't want to leave the nova.. I just like the ship as a science ship.. same reason why I don't want to leave my saber, and akira for my escort tac. my main is happy in the excelsior, but that is because excelsior owns all.

Now, if this is indeed the true Rhode Island type...I have a request. I want the SC-4 shuttle soon too.:D

*whistles* I'm impressed it's showing up now. I actually also feel it likely comes at a very good time with the enterprise-F about to be released. The design style change for Starfleet indicated with the Ent-F actually goes very well in hand with the Rhode Island retouches.

I admit to be curious as to how much we'll be able to use her. There's bound to be far more interest in her if the ship is allowed to be useable later on... but this is a skin and not a retrofit. That's probably highly unlikely.

...I'm a bit disappointed to see no feature episodes or Borg Invasion starting in August.

On the bright side, I see no mention of this being a C-Store item. Maybe we get it for free? At least that'd dispel the argument: "I bought something but it's not useful at endgame RAGHRAGH!"

Nova class are Tier 2 ships. And after reading the Wiki on it, will probably be a T2 skin although I seriously doubt that there will be much demand for a T2 C-Store ship.

I wouldn't mind it being a refit as the Nova Sci ships are some of my favorite designs in STO. The simple, elegant, sleek lines of a precursor to the Intrepid class (another fave of mine).
