Well I looked in the C-store and couldn't find it, so I stopped by ESD Shipyard and checked to see if I missed a new release somehow of a new skin for the ship - nope. The god-awful looking Trident, Oracle, and Destiny classes all still listed.
So, can any one tell me what this ship I saw was? It was closest to an Oracle class, but was lacking the lower stabliizer/nacelle/hull (which is an option in customization) but more importantly, had an Akira style saucer section which was more square than round.
(or did I just completely read the wrong ship type in the owners info window??)
There is one skin in the CStore (or at least there was) but I'd not call it sleek. Nimbus I believe it's called, not exactly pretty but then none of the DSSVs are.
It's listed there if you want to check to see if it was the Nimbus.
OK, it won't let me link to it. It's in the Ships, Ship Costumes section.
