I want the Merian-class to replace the ShiKahr-class. That's pretty much it right now.
instead of the shikahar i say to replace the miranda class. the shikahar is a 25th cen ship modeled off of the miranda, so take the miranda out and put in the Merian, then make a fleet ver or a tier 5 of it, easier to explain then a tier 5 miranda that nearly 130 to 140 year old ship holding up with a ship that is jest off the line.
*for those who don't know: like the Cheyenne it's a Wolf 359 wreckage ship
For KDF I'd like to see the Chancellor class from the IKS Gorkon novel series...it's an advanced battlecruiser with highly sophisticated sensors. Should be possible just like the Luna and the Vesta.
The ship is already mentioned in "The Path to 2409".
The Springfield and New Orleans classes are the last two great looking canon designs missing from STO.
The Somraw, K'tinga, D'Kyr, D7, Kumari, Xindi carrier, Xindi escort, and the T'Varo are all older than the Constitution Refit and yet they are tier 5. The Constellation is made up primarily of Connie refit parts and it is tier 5, there is no logical reason whatsoever for the no tier 5/6 connie rule.
Don't conjure it up!
As far as i know Cryptics devs they will make it a super Cruiser, featureing some 360 degrees heavy Beam Array, a CMDR tactical BOFF, 4-5 Tact Console slots and one or two Hangar slots.
Before you can say knife, one of them would be able to single-handedly take out 3 Galaxy Class ships, LOL.
See, that'd be fantastic! Seeing that often-disregarded little brick tearing apart a Tactical Cube, 1hiting the gateway then killing the rest of his team and stealing their omega marks...
The day will not save them. And we own the night.
Merian class. I always loved the Miranda (and the Soyuz class was a favourite as well) so a "modern" interpretation was always going to be welcomed. The Merian class is beautiful and a natural progression for the style. Make it tier 5 or 5.5 and I'll pay money for it on at least 2 toons of my 9.
Other than that I still want a K'Vort. I want its looks and you can give it the Chel Grett's stats and Boff layout and I'm one happy dark elf (take away the special console and add just a bog-standard cloak and I'm still happy).
I would like (stress - LIKE) a Romulan science class vessel at lower levels but since I'm already nearly lvl 50 on my kdf/reman and fed/romulan this will only be the a temptation to roll another Rom/Rem toon.
