# 1 There MUST be a T5 Akira!

The latest Ask Cryptic.
Quote:
Q: Rexy The Akira class ship was designed as part of Star Fleets response to the Borg threat, and is a newer ship design then the Defiant, Galaxy, Nebula, and Excelsior classes, which are T5 ships. So, when are we getting a t5 Akira?

A: We are scheduled to release an enhanced version of the Akira to be released sometime during Season 4, but we are still on the fence about whether or not we will release a Vice Admiral variant of the ship.
I cannot emphasise how much there must be a T5 Akira, Its horribly misplaced as is as a T3.
The Akira is both newer and more powerful than the T4 & T5 retrofit that is the Defiant.
And it is definitely vastly more powerful than a puny Excelsior Class starship.

But most of all, the Akira is Cryptic's flagship.
It proudly adorns the cover of the the Gold Edition of STO.

I would like to see a Tier 5 akira, depending on the boff list I would probably replace my fleet with it.

Although before that I would like to see an Ambassador class.

the Akira does at the very least deserve to be a tier 4.

i would support a tier 5 as i love the design.

Sure... We need it.. It is logical

*After* the KDF have recieved no less than 7 new ships (including SVs at every tier, as well as an option for a Offensive SV - A LtC Tac Cruiser wouldnt be bad either)

The Akira should've been T5 from the start. I support making a T5 Akira, and on a larger scale a whole new tier setup. the one now is kinda laughable.

Stay out of Akira related threads if you don't like it, An enhanced version would be great, hopefully some cool ability like a 360 degree torpedo launcher will be added

He/she doesn't have the right to express an opposing opinion in an Akira related thread? I don't particularly care one way or the other about an Akira at T-5, but I can tell you I'd never fly one. I happen to agree with the person you're quoting.

Actually the fine details on the model clearly show that its a carrier with a pass-through hanger deck. The artist went into detail about it on either Eaves or Drexler's blog sometime last year as well.

The shots shown in the movie and on TV may not have been close enough to show such detail, but the original model had them.
