I have a suggestion: Add the one-man timeship from VOY: "Future's End" as a playable shuttle-class as a bonus when we purchase the Wells class vessel from the C-Store, just like when we receive the Vulcan Support craft when we purchase the Vulcan D'Kyr from the C-Store.

(I'd like a ship pet, too, but since we didn't get a Vulcan Support craft non-combat pet, I'd understand not having a timeship non-com pet.)

Never ceases to amaze me, its always more more more...aren't there enough bloody shuttles on the fed side? Forget that its insane that players might be able to play a Wells class.

Why are we supposedly getting a 29th century Timeship again?! WTF? Why don't they just give us the Ent-J while they're at it, since that one is only 200 years more advanced. lol

People think we are getting one because Wells class vessels have been showing up in game. Odds are we might because there are idiots out there who seem to think its okay for us to be flying a a ship from 400 years in the future is alright, and the devs see dollar signs like always.

I 100% agree. I will have a really good laugh over how they try to explain how they are able to be played ingame when they are from 400 years into the future...

It is bad enough that we are currently piloting Tholian ships ingame.

Its a Timeship, just like the TARDIS. So it can show up at any time.

Personally, I'm alright with the Wells class showing up if they're extremely rare and there's a good in-game story for why they're popping up in 2409. Maybe all its futuristic tech is fried and have to be replaced by current era equipment.

Use your imagination! This could work fantastically! Let's say, indeed, we can hardly fully understand these ships... and sell em as such! Then, thru a series of painstaking upgrade cycles -- akin to the enhancing the Reman tech -- you unlock more and more of your ships abilities along the way. I'd totally love that!

As for how they got here, not a big deal: they're time ships. Maybe the fleet commander of a future wells squadron made a tiny miscalculation -- or they got stuck in an ion storm or some such -- and several dozen got warped to our time as a result. Not more outlandish than any other Star Trek lore.

Remember, it's a game; we're supposed to have fun! :)

The NX and the Odyssey have 358 years between them. If they can sit next to each other at Earth Spacedock how is that any different then an Odyssey sitting next to a Wells?

Having done the few time travel adventures already in STO, older ships are really not weaker then modern ships. In Night of the Comet I am not blowing up the 150 year old Klingon ships any faster then I am 25th century Klingon ships. It is the same in the Past Imperfect adventure.

It is fairly clear that more modern does not necessarily make you more powerful in this game.

There is a huge difference, the difference being the NX has been designed built and and put to rest. The Wells is a ship that won't be designed for centuries.

Look what happened with that shuttle? It destroyed Earth and what the whole Sol system? Why...because some idiot who didn't know what he was doing played with it. So you suggest we have dozens of these ships flying around? Captains don't know what in a blue hell what they are doing? A powder keg just waiting to blow and take half the galaxy with it.
