So, Feds are getting the Andorian ship eventually...
 
...let's get the normal arguments outta the way, shall we?

Blah blah, Feds get a new ship, blah blah blah. KDF isn't getting a new ship, yadda yadda. We're only 16% of the player base, etc etc.

And so on.

I am just looking forward to killing another ship that DOESN'T have a saucer, two nacelles, etc to blow up in Ker'rat.

While i'm annoyed that it's been close to 10 ships since our last release (not counting box ships and the vet ship), so long as the new ship doesn't have yet another game-breaker (team fortress anyone) and we still have the torkaht...then it's whatever.

That vet ship is pretty sweet, wouldn't mind getting my grubby little hands on it someday (907 days from now).
:rolleyes:
Course a fleet Pach or a discounted T5 C-store ship would be nice as well.

It's a FED ship which will be piloted by FED players, so even if the Andorian Ship gets ridiculously superiour stats and a 10-console layout like the last additions to c-store/steam it will still be (in most cases) easy prey. A large part of the FED-playerbase seems to think that slapping beam arrays on their ships is the best build this game has to offer.

It's mind-boggling how many beam Vestas and Steamrunners are out there ...

Its not a surprise.
Back when the Devs annouced the new ships for teh KDF, what they where and that they would be released first before the feds got thiers they set the stage for this.
Its merely playing out on the vessels that where already in the works or had been asked for a long time by the feds.

I'm not taking it as evidence we will never get another vessel made for us, though I have no illusions that we are currently in the limelight at the moment iether.

All we can hope is let them know what we wish and hope it comes in season 8 and the Devs dont follow old habits.

In fact thats all we can do at all. Wait and see if S8 is what we have been told or if it gets set aside again for some reason.

I don't mind as much, but I would love to see more variants of existing models with differences "under the hood" as a quick low-cost way to catch us up. Additional models for those variants can be made at a later date, imho.

I suppose with something as complex as the Vesta or Andorian ships, that's not as easy, but I could see a broadside Kar'Fi variant (with all the specs of an Andorian broadsider and no hangars), a Corsair with Vesta specs, and a Qin with whatever the escort-hybrid they come up with to complete the Odyssey/Vesta/??? set.

Sell enough on the C-store to warrant it and *then* make us a model/skin for it.

honestly, another popup targ-er, ship upon which to demonstrate the superiority of KDF toons, specs, skill and play?

Hmmm...excellent. I get to design a new kill marker for my ILM wall. I look forward to pounding yet another hapless, pay-for-it Fed target into the dirt in Ker'rat, then demonstrating my superiority further by being courteous and offering friendly, helpful, advice to the poor soul so afflicted by my actions. I expect I'll hear a new, exciting form of venom in response, and look forward to the whining on the forums about how OP my NON-payship Bird of Prey is, and how the Feds need some new gimmick to beat me.

l wonder if Andorian tears taste like champagne...

Not all of them. two and a half years ago I saw on the engineering reports that an andorian ship wasi n the works. Now I've always liked Andorians, and hated Vulcans, so i rolled an Andorian Tactical toon. So I'm quite happy.

I know what you mean, one of my mates whose been playing longer than me was doing that and complaining how squishy it was! He also didn't seewhy it would be so powerful as I was complaining about.
So I sat him down explained Boff powers and DHC 101. Now his game has been upped and he's quite surprised a the abbillity of this beast.

I'll be able to smash through andorian hulls with my krenn destroyer, and I'm fine with that. I just wish we get at some point a truely aggressive escort, the ones we have are rather tanky but aren't up to par with the dps of a fleet defiant. :(
