We also didn't really get a scimitar that looked more like a traditional Romulan warbird.

I wonder if this is more an experiment on the companies part on what will sell more, or if this was the lack of time or money striking again. The wings being so similar is completely understandable, animating different firing sequences would be hellish. Despite the minimal differences I still hope the customizability is great, the really varied areas like the engines and weapon pods will be super fun to play with, can't wait.
What other 3 pack has vastly different parts?

Especially the Tulwar variant, I don't know why, I just got the old spacefaring vibe from it.
Couldn't agree more. I've never been a fan of the Scimitar, but those screenshots actually look very nice, I may end up getting it haha.

Those look amazing. I can't wait to see the blog later today.

Are you guys going to update the NPC Scimitar models? They haven't been remastered like the other Romulan and Reman ships with LoR, and they don't implode properly when destroyed.
Say NO to mandatory Arc!

"Pointless"? That's a bit harsh, and I'm going to have to disagree personally. Our artists enjoy celebrating the work they've created and sharing it with players through a blog. While the stats and abilities are sure interesting, celebrating the design process is just as important IMO as there would be no ship (and therefore no stats or abilities) without the incredible work our ship artists do...
I agree with you Brandon. I actually love the behind-the-scenes peeks at the How and the Why of the game.

I so often see in these forums people complaining about ship blogs not having stats, that all they want is the stats, and people have been salivating over the Scimitar such that "every" thread with a Dev post has someone asking when it's coming... My quip was to pre-jump on the "I Can Haz Stats Now" bandwagon. That's why I quoted the word pointless and put a "tongue" smiley (as in someone blowing a raspberry) to express the cheeky nature of the post. Clearly my sarcasm and forum mockery didn't come through.

No offense was intended.

I truly apologize if any occurred.

The Vesta parts have different shapes for all their components instead of just different details. Most of the differences on these models look to be like texturing, punching holes, adding glowing lights, or very slight additions like the extra X on the Falchion. Detail work like that is really cool, but it should complement the artists major changes we so often see in STO. Maybe I'm just butt hurt that character customization is so much worse for ships. I just feel that even if a new design is a failure trying is better than not doing so.
The Somraw, K'tinga, D'Kyr, D7, Kumari, and T'Varo are all older than the Constitution Refit and yet they are tier 5. The rule needs to change.

Is it going to have the bridge and interior (hallways etc) from nemesis or at least a dark and metal reman inspired interior and bridge? I don't think the standard romulan bridge and interior would fit the concept of the ship very well imo

Maybe it could only be slight variations so all the pieces can mix and match well and still have smooth fitting animations?
