I'm not holding my breath. It could just be a skin. We've had starter ships only useful for the first 10 levels (before level progression compels an upgrade) so a ship skin lasting a tier doesn't sound like it wouldn't have any precedents. Pay 180 C-Point, do not pass go.
Heck, how do you even translate a Nova Variant at Tier 5? It obviously can't quite be as powerful as other offerings - it'd be kind of silly to have it outdo existing ships while its so small (though the same argument could be made for the Defiant).
Ugh. Speculating about it makes my brain hurt. I'll just wait and see. It's not that much of a wait.
A T2 skin and a T5 refit similar to the Nebula and Excelsior at T3/T5? I could deal with both.
