The only way we get a new ship displayed will be when they want to spend money on a new 3D billboard.
Don't forget all the skin types and patterns and every combo of colors for the patterns, its probably more in the tens of thousands of ships, maybe even in the hundreds of thousands.

Unfortunately it will probably be the carrier from the upcoming FE.....

They only put FED ships into the Shipyard, so that means we will get a new FED ship very soon, or they they do the samething they did with the Ambassador class, Ambassador for FED, Kamarag for the KDF and maybe a variant for the ROM.

At the moment, it should be the Kumari flying there. Remember that it came AFTER the Ambassador.

A ship of the week sounds nice, but I'd be extremely happy with seeing your own ship. That might be tough, but worth it for me

Ok maybe I am wrong and this is only for Starfleet ships.

Best idea so far. With the amount of ships in-game a different model flying in and out every now and then would be great...

Being able to see your own vessel would be an awesome feature, not sure if would be easy for the Dev's, but would definately be worth it.

I say, remove ESD Shipyard. Its fool having a Captain/Almirant purchasing a ship in some generic mmo store. Instead, take a fly to Utopia Planitia, make us a mini video or mini quest for the comission ceremony, etc. That would rock much more.
