Losing the secondary hull would ruin the ship. :|

i predict the odyssey ending up with the sci LTC station, it looks like a star cruiser after all. the akira should natively be at tier 5, but i think eventually there will be a tier 5 refit with a eng LTC station. sci ship with a LTC tactical? hmm. well, they could make the andorian ship a sci ship, it would complement the vulcan ship well in that position.

everyone would proboly grown at the release of ANOTHER sci ship, especially when they were expecting an escort, but oh well. fix the nebula then, it should never have been a sci ship. it should have been a sci focused counterpart to the more tactical galaxy R.

Think we'll ever see this cycle completed?

The missing ships would be a Tac Ship with LtComm Engineer station, Cruiser with LtComm Science station, and a Science Vessel with a LtComm Tactical station.

If Cryptic were to hire you to design these last 3, what canon (or soft canon / non canon) ships would you base them off of? Extra points for links to Memory Alpha or any other site that has Star Trek ship designs on it. I'm especially interested in any candidates for the Sci Vessel with LtComm Tactical station . . . I'd really love something like that for my main Captain.
What you will probably see is a Tier 6 eventually comming out with those slots and some increased console slots and more weaps' slots.

As 1 of the Devs recently mentioned, the Ambassador Class is due out before 2012, so that may bridge the gap a little bit, especially if its' a lower mid tier, and a higher tier (like Excelsior). There was also once talk of the New Orleans Class, but I do not believe that design has begun on that ship yet. I'm sure there will be more ships available soon. In January, I believe I heard someone say a ton of new ships are coming into the game. Hopefully Cryptic will address these issues when the new ships roll out.

I wouldn't hold your breath on getting the Ambassador before the new year, but go ahead if you want.

*Somewhere* on the forum...there is a post by capnLogan, in which he says the Ambassador Class will totally make its' debut in December, before 2012. I will remain upbeat and believe his statement was true....(i would link to it if I could find it again)....I'll have faith until Jan 1st. If no Ambassador by then, I'll really be disappointed if an explanation (at the very least), is not provided.

As soemone who reagularly follows the development of the KDF and various statements about what was supposed to be released when I'm pretty sure the Ambassador will go the way of the KDF.

For the Sci/Tac, if Cryptic could get the rights, Vesta-class would be awesome to have in game (http://memory-beta.wikia.com/wiki/Vesta_class)

I loved this design from the Enterprise contest. Where do you think it would fit it, based on aesthetics?

Actually, the more I see it, the more I think it looks like a better version of the Jupiter class.

I can't seem to find it, but during the enterprIse comtest, there was design that looked like an Ambassador class had made sweet love to a Mack truck, does anyone else know what I'm talking about? It had a blue, split navigational deflector dish. THAT was my vote for the next Enterprise.

Edit: Found it! http://www.startrekonline.com/dyncon...place_news.jpg
