Assuming they had to pay big bucks to get it if they don't make the stats on the Vesta OP then it will not cover their costs

And Crytipc - giving it crappy stats but an amazing console - or 2 won't slide - most people will see right through.

Bare min it should have 3 univeral BO slots

really I think it should be the first to break 10 with 11 - 4/4/3 - console slots

a 12+ turn rate would be good to make use of those cannons up front

42k Hull

1.4 shield mod as a super sci ship


Its very probable that Cryptic will charge 3000 zen plus for the ship to cover the extra costs so it's even more important that the ship screams - "next level up - have to buy!"

Where does this fantasy of the Vesta costing Cryptic extra to get come from?

Not exactly this, we usually get someone demanding that this or that ship MUST be an escort because...I don't know.
I particularly remember the idea to make the Nebula an escort because of its small size and excessive maneuverability.

Just going to put this right here:

The Vesta will be just this: a nice model, a science vessel (with presumably a different boff lineup than other ships), and a special console. So please, do not expect an "I win" vessel.

I think you underestimate the fact that people will just buy it because they are Vesta fans. I mean really look how many people picked up the Galaxy-X, the Excelsior, all the other ships in the C-Store. If it's there, people will buy it because they want it for the looks. Hell I was one of those people. I picked up almost every ship in the C-store because I like the way it looks. I've leveled up countless captains and made them work in specific ships.

All in all each ship has it's own unique abilities, and lucky for all of us we can swap around most of the abilities they each have. To make a claim that a ship needs to be OP or people won't buy it is absurd. Just look at how many people by keys all day long in hopes that they can get ships from the boxes.

First thing sales of the Regent were almost non-existant - I said it would bomb and it did.

I admitted in that thread later that I was deliberately going over the top - primarily to bug KDF players. But as most KDF forum goers who have tracked me since then I have been 100% supportive of the KDF and have made posts all across the forums asking them to fix things for the KDF. I asked Dan Stahl recently to put big notices in when a FED player can open up KDF - I have a thread in Game play bugs right now asking them to fix the First city re-direct - in fact since many KDF forum goers have given up asking for change I am one of the new ones on their case - so I don't think that thread you mentioned carries the same weight.

Since you do the exact same thing now you did then...what has changed?
NOTHING.

I don't have numbers - but i play the game 6 hrs a day every day - all over the map - and i don't see the regent more than a couple times in the whole day.

I see the Oddy everywhere, I see the Armitage a lot, I see other FED ships a lot but almost no regents - I would call that a bomb. I don't think i am the only player that does not see the Regent very often.

And Talking about the 2 ships this one is way different - first i said that i was going over the top on the Regent which was just A REFIT of the Sov

The VESTA is the first completely new Starfleet C-Store starship to the Game since the Oddy - off course it needs to 1 up the bar.
