Any plans for a new Vo'Quv Skin?
 
I was wondering if part of the KDF rework includes a new skin for the Vo'Quv carrier. I personally don't think either of the current ones have a true Klingon feel. Perhaps they could make a design based off of the Sword of Kahless from Klingon academy? Not the exact ship, but a modernized version of it with the traditional Klingon "Manta Ray" shape.

Unlikely since that design belongs to Interplay and Cryptic can't use stuff from other companies.

hrm, I hadn't thought of that. I still say it could use another skin, something like a much bulkier Vor'cha would be nice.

Sounds like a cool idea.
Hangar "pods" could be under the wings like on the current models.


Or perhaps something a bit more unconventional:
The Centauri Battlecruiser from the Babylon 5 show had a hangar in the middle of its forward section

which on the ship you propose coul correspond to the spot where the Vor'cha has its Disrputor cannon.
Why not put one hangar there?

The second could go onto the "back" of the ship once the bridge "box" has removed.
This is actually also from a Centauri ship, allbeit from the "Babylon 5 Wars" tabletop.
One of their destroyers, the Altarian had one hangar on its back

this way it would have the typical two hangar arrangement just not side-by side.

Oh, and something that doesn't have 22nd era nacelles would be preferable.:)

I like that a lot actually. The idea of a gigantic Vor'cha type ship "spitting out" fighters and birds of prey.

That Altarian Destroyer would make for a great Raptor Skin! Just change the color to green, grey or brown and I would be happy to seen that flying around Klingon space.

I just want something in the spirit of the vor kang.


Man that ship is sexy.

Well, it does lack some of the typical chacteristics of an Klingon ship like a command section and the typical characteristic of a Raptor, the nacelles.
However it does have a "beak" and somewhat birdlike wings.
While it does not shout Raptor I reminds be very much of the Orion Interceptor from "Enterprise" and it also has a forward section very similar to that of the new Orion carriers.
So green is good, but it would fit the Orions far better than the Klingon Raptors IMO.

Well I personally hope there will be more skins of skin reworks for the classic T5s...
The Hegh'ta actually looked better at release then it looks now through bad changes, the Souvereign is one of the most beloved Star Trek ships (regulary wins the "Whats your favorite Star Trek ship"-contests of certain ST pages... Tho Vo'Quv might me a BSG-knockoff but its still awsome.

But most of the recent effort was tied to new C-Store ships instead of keeping the old ones up-to-date... So yes... as soon as SOME resources are available they should be there..

Its a pretty chunky monkey for sure. Id like to see it get sleeker.
