New Negh'Var (and possibilities of newer KDF ships)
 
Heard in interview about a possible Negh'var coming out. I wonder if this will be nixed or if it was allowed to be said because it is actually coming out soon LOL.

My biggest thing personally for the KDF I want to see is a new Negh'var a given, fek'ihr/klingon hybrid raptor, k'vort bop, a b'rel (possibility of a 25th century one) that is actually viable in combat as a torpedo boat, nausicaan ship that can use the labelled "nausicaan siphon pods", gorn zilant, ferasan and lethean ships (personally i just use lockbox ships as mercenary ships since thats as close as we seem to get), and some more bortasqu' type ships but a more sound design to where they are cannon based ships but can actually use DC's and DHC's effectively.

I'm not sold on the idea of a new Negh'var because, quite frankly, the KDF has the battlecruisers it needs. It'd be sorta hard to improve on the Vor'cha, Tor'kaht, and K'tinga, along with the various other battlecruisers that we have.

I want a few more raptors and BoPs, and a dedicated end-game sci vessel.

One reason I would be sold on a new Negh'var is if a new one has a more 25th century version of the one that was used on DS9 in that battle that rocked the crap out of DS9's shields. I could agree with you if it didn't boast the fear like that one did and possibly with methods like the vesta has of making its mold into the game.

Bops I agree but one of the problems I have with the mechanics of them like the B'rel its a great icon from the franchise but it was poorly implemented in how it is represented. Also the fact that its a raiding type ship and besides lack of KDF content there is more federation type things like convoy duty from blockade and not really anything to raid with a raider.

Klingon Science is kind of a touchy area being that Science was never a strong point in the Klingon Empire and we really only have science due to the cut and paste of federation type content we get but it was considered not so honorable of a profession in the franchise. As far as the game goes I think we have gotten our science ship the kamarag/K'maj but the science department would probally be filled by more gorn and nausicaan ships if they ever allow nausicaan ships to use the tech defined as nausicaan.

Raptors I definately want to see especially if we could get some variants of fek'ihr and klingon mixed tech possibly romulan too since we are helping them would be nice to see a line of raptors using a hybrid of those 3 technologies.

I'd be sold on it if it was the Regent's Flagship.... :P :D

There's another one... tons of reasons and ideas for making one for the KDF :)

In the last 4 hour interview there was a mention about a Negh'var as the next kdf ship.
I wonder who will buy it if it will be true .I won't .
I want an escort with 5 tactical consoles and/or 5 fore slots and having a turn rate equal or more than 15.
I didn't get any other mention about other kdf ships .Maybe I missed it because I skiped some portions of the interview but from I have heard there were no mention about a second kdf ship
beside the negh'var

Pretty sure the Negh'var refit was on the list for what the KDF was going to get for when we turned F2P along with another BoP variant if i recall correctly.

Personally I have never asked for a cruiser KDF side as we have plenty of those but I would like a Raptor with a proper turning ability, maybe shove a single Hanger on it to mirror the Armitage or even a hangar version of the Varanus to mirror the Vesta. And please if you would like us to buy them do not make them a 3-pack!

not true, the kdf are missing a regent stationed ship and an exclecior stationed ship. the fleet vorcha is actually to tactical to be ideal, thanks to tech doffs the fleet ktinga or kamarang, not the fleet vorcha is the best battle cruiser curently.

a c store negvar with the regent station setup in my opinion would be the perfect battle cruiser. a fleet tkono with the excelsior station setup i would love as well.

a tier 3 fleet raptor with a LTC sci, and a tier 4 raptor with an LTC eng, would be awesome. a fleet hegh with 10% better stats, and a universal ensign would be awesome. a tier 4 bop with the a 4th sci console would be awesome. these are all great niches that there is plenty of room for on the kdf side

Are we talking Regent as in the Mirror Universe one?

zipagat 03-06-2013 05:06 PM

What's the difference between the Regent's one and a regular one anyway? It got its ass handed to it fairly easily by the mirror Defiant (which at the time lacked Quantums and had a inexperienced crew) mainly because it couldn't target the Defiant properly, and we already have a slow lumbering ship in the Bortasqu'.

It would be nice to see a raptor or BOP with 5 forward weapon slots (leaning raptor personally as they are the dedicated escort for us) for a change since we seem to have battlecruisers coming out our ass.

On the other hand its likely cheaper and less effort to just re use the existing Negh'var model.
