i don't know, or like, the design very well, but the proportions look a bit off to me. now remember, we are almost certain this is gonna be a sci ship, with cannons, it will be interesting


1000 day ships revealed as well, blog about them next tuesday according to brian

now the klingon vet ship, the Peghqu'

the nacelles exposed themselves a bit, wonder what else it does

i like that common components are used here, the warp engines i think are exactly the same ones off of a lower tier raptor i think. like that the cannon harpoints looking like actual cannons, and not just from a spot on the hull. with the fleet somraw and fleet scorge finally giveing the kdf good escorts, another escort looking ship is a bonus, and hopefully as good, and not to gimmicky

only saw 1 of the fed vet ships, the chimera

its clearly almost exactly like one of those ent-f contest entries, the one that inspired the intrepid refit costume deflector.

Wait till you see her in-game. A still from a digital camera taking video doesn't do the Chimera justice. She is absolutely beautiful, and so is the KDF ship. Also, their transformations are incredible.

worried about to many gimmicks myself with these vet ships, hop they don't give anything up for gimmicks. oh who am i kidding, ships don't give anything up for an advantage anymore.

guessing the vesta as gonna have the same station setup as the regent, only sci in place of engineering. not sure on the vt ships, heard them refereed to as destroyers, so escorts, but the fed ship looks like a cruiser, not a tac heavy ship at all.

i dont recall the vesta lookiing that ugly in the books.

:(

What a failboat.

It's a starcruiser 2.0.

Laaazy.

Can I haz sooper OP Vet console 1000 days +10% ACC +40 turn rate +75% Crit Sev +15% Crit Chance +BuffStrip proc +3x Vog proc +200 Kinetic resist +200 All energy resist +50% all damage +50% shield bleed... Whew...

What have Vet rewards ever done for ground by the way? I know everyone thinks PvP is borked from creep/apathy/weak PvE but if that's the case then ground stuff has been Completely ignored...

Some nifty costum choices for ground.

I dunno, I kinda like the Vesta (but I'm partial to a kit-bash of the Star Cruiser I've got floating around, so it could just be down to preferences). For those that might not know, it's not a particularly small ship (a hair shorter bow-to-stern than the Sovvy, but with less beam and draft). I'm really hoping we get the forward swept pylons, as well. I wouldn't be surprised if its BOff layout was similar to the AC-R or Vo'Quv.

It'll probably be the last Fed-side C-Store ship I buy (already have the Regent and Armitage), becoming the new ride of my Sci cappy in the Armitage. Cryptic would have to go beyond the impossible to really come up with an in-house model that wows me into buying another Fed ship. KDF side... eh, IDK, other than the Fleet Corsair Flight-Deck cruiser and Fleet Ning'Tao, there's not really a lot that appeal to me.

Here's a few links to Mr. Rademaker's renders of the ship.

[EDIT]

Just for giggles, that flat space at the back between the nacelles? Runabout launchpads. Along with a shuttle bay near the back of the saucer. Have a nice night.

Before the Atrox and Armitage, folks were talking about it being the Fed Carrier - the specs for it basically had it as a shuttlecarrier...

The Chimera just looks like a good looking Advanced Escort, shame I can't stand flying it lol.

I'll get round to flying these sometime next year >.>

matteo716maikai 10-06-2012 10:26 PM

Boff layout should be bird of prey. All UNi. That way it's a ship that's whatever you want it to be.

webdeath 10-06-2012 10:53 PM

I'm kinda interested in what these "Transformations" are for the 1k ships. I hope it's not going to be too cheesy. But I am interested in how it will play out. I suspect though both will be Cruiser/Battle Cruiser first. And the Transformations maybe allow for Escort Modes. Which might be kinda fun.

Of course the Seating also depends on how effective it will be.. as well as the turn rate. So looking foward to Monday/Tuesday.
