The Comet-class is out next month. Take a gander at the calendar.
While it is unfortunate that the Nomad-class could not be brought around in time, I'm glad to see it was replaced with something else (instead of not getting anything at all). The Maelstrom looks pretty sweet to me.
Here's an idea.
Fix the problems with the game instead of going "look a shiny object" in order to distract the player base?
Or if there has to be fixation on ship variants then how about something for the klingon empire?
