As per Dastahl's post elsewhere:

If you were at the Star Trek convention in San Francisco this last weekend, Denise Crosby would have you believe that this episode is going to be all about Tasha Yar and Sela. We'll see... anything can happen.

The anniversary event will also offer a new special free ship for both Fed and Kdf players much like we gave away the Odyssey during last year's event.

So what would YOU like to see?

Examples (or my personal thoughts if you prefer):

An episode involving Starfleet and/or the KDF receiving intelligence from somewhere regarding Sela's whereabouts, perhaps involving a 'rescue' of sorts, and perhaps even a skirmish with the Iconian ship (the Obex).

A mirror-universe themed episode involving mirror Tasha, perhaps in command of an Ambassador class starship (thus introducing the Ambassador class as the 'free ship' episode reward, if it is, perhaps).

Now, realistically, I realise that these scenarios are extremely unlikely and would likely be more than could be squeezed into one episode (especially since some will be playing it with a rather impatient 'I just want the free ship' attitude) but as I said, there IS potential for a very memorable episode there and a little speculation is basically harmless.

There is potential for a good episode so, with the speculation pertaining to Denise Crosby in mind, what would YOU like to see?

It wont be this as the featured episode is going to provide a free ship for both FED & KDF players, and Cryptic would be fools to randomly give KDF players a FED ship to play with.

Good idea (as far as the idea goes) but hardly practical.

True - but this depends on whether they're providing a single free ship that can be used by both factions, or an individual (free) Fed ship and an individual (free) KDF ship. It's not entirely clear, though their 'hint' does tend to lean toward a single ship, as you say.

The hint doesn't specifically say it will be a single ship that both factions can use. It could easily be the Ambassador for Feds, and some Klingon ship in use at the time the Ent-C was lost. It was a Klingon outpost she was defending, after all.

Ambassador for the Feds and a K'vort for the KDF.

Wait what, everyone gets a free ship or like they give away a few at random?

Pretty much this, yes.

Both to be quickly followed by a superior C-Store or Fleet version...

Yeah - the hint is (probably intentionally) vaugue on that, though I agree with your comments pertaining to the Ambassador class and said, in another thread, that it would make sense for the free ship to be of said class due to the Denise Crosby/Tasha/Sela connection.

Anyway, I would love to see the Iconians again!

If it resembles the Oddy event as much as the hint suggests, then it doesn't really matter what ship the Feds get. The KDF will get a similar, though not necessarily equal ship.
HAIL HYDRA!

You pretty much nailed it... Kind of like the bortasqu' and captains chariot... KDF gets copies but the KDF one is nerfed down a little bit so the people who think stats of a ship are all that matters that they will go buy the c-store version later on lol. Although without them making a 300 dollar ship, lock box ship, etc the only way the KDF seems to get anything if its a cut and paste and then drained out and they say we didn't forget the KDF... you got something even tho its close to nothing.
