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??)

That would be the Nimbus costume variant, which I happen to fly quite a lot. You can purchase them in the C-Store under "ship costumes". It comes with the secondary array underneath but I prefer to turn that off - and it does kinda look like an akira :-)
