# 1 New Ships
10-06-2011, 07:35 AM
So what we know from STOked: (in terms of ships)

The Connie Refit skin looks amazing, and I wish it were a T5 ship. This will encourage me to reroll an engie captain. (Ability: cloaking Torpedo)

There's a saber in there somewhere with a speed boost console. Fun!

The Odyssey looks great, again, reroll engie captain.

The Akira refit can kill fighters real fast. (Woopie!) Couldn't we do this already? The Akira Refit looks like a cross between the Akira and the Oslo. Meh. Seems to also be rocking that Venture texture, black and white.

A defiant with quad cannons. It now looks more CANON. Get it?

None of these ships but the Odyssey are top tier ships or are usable skins at top tier(or maybe they are?).

No idea when these are coming out or reaching a test server.

Anybody have any information to add or correct?

AFAIK, the defiant one will have a skin you can use on your defiant retrofit, similar to the venture.

As much as this is cool. Where are the flipping canon ships! e.g 2nd phase sovereign refit, ambassdor class, maybe the nx refit that would be awesome and etc.

There is no gap, the two classes were very close to one another, Excelsior was the lead ship of the class and put into service in 2287-90 (after being refit with conventional warp drives) and is when the class was put into full scale production, and the Ambassador (also class lead) launched approx. 2320-25. Are you referring to a design theory gap or time gap?

design theory gap
there must have been other ships between the two
this gives a good example

The only one of those that is, in fact, canon is the Ambassador (Which I'm still betting on being a T4 equivalent to the T3 Excelsior at some point)

The Sovereign and NX refits were both proposed ship designs that were never actually seen on screen. They are no more canon than the Ambassador Prototype or the Voyager prototype.

Remember, just because you think something looks cool doesn't make it canon unless you can point out the actual episode or movie where the design showed up.

They are not the propsed desgins they are the finalized design nx refit and the sovereign refit is canon. It is stated that it was going to be in nemesis but it was pulled out due to budget reasons. So it is canon. The nx refit was going to be used for the next season if enterprise was renewed for another season. If it is stated by the desginer or the company but not used in star trek tv series or movies its still canon.

Not correct, the Nemesis version was in Nemesis, so it is canon.

http://ex-astris-scientia.org/articles/sovereign.htm

The fleet that was supposed to meet the Enterprise was pulled due to budget constraints, not the Enterprise.

The Kzinti were planned for the 5th season of "Enterprise".
They were not in since the show was cancelled after Season 4.
Hence Cryptic could not use them in STO.
What was not on screen is not canon.

I think you got to mention the Bellerophon-Intrepid type. That is a beautiful ship and this is coming from someone who avoided Sci-ships like they were on fire.

That said, I wouldn't mind seeing the NX refit or the Vesta class either.
