# 1 New Deep Space Science Vessel?
02-08-2012, 09:48 AM
I was hanging around sector space near ESD yesterday and saw a ship which I didn't recognize.

I clicked on the player and looked to see what ship he was flying. It was listed as (Deep Space Science Vessel). Well my Sci officer had one but dropped it because it is so fugly. This one however was pretty sleek and impressed me so I thought, hmm...must be a C-Store skin/variant.

Well I looked in the C-store and couldn't find it, so I stopped by ESD Shipyard and checked to see if I missed a new release somehow of a new skin for the ship - nope. The god-awful looking Trident, Oracle, and Destiny classes all still listed.

So, can any one tell me what this ship I saw was? It was closest to an Oracle class, but was lacking the lower stabliizer/nacelle/hull (which is an option in customization) but more importantly, had an Akira style saucer section which was more square than round.

(or did I just completely read the wrong ship type in the owners info window??)

Thanks!

There is one skin in the CStore (or at least there was) but I'd not call it sleek. Nimbus I believe it's called, not exactly pretty but then none of the DSSVs are.

It's listed there if you want to check to see if it was the Nimbus.

OK, it won't let me link to it. It's in the Ships, Ship Costumes section.

That would be the Nimbus costume variant, which I happen to fly quite a lot. You can purchase them in the C-Store under "ship costumes". It comes with the secondary array underneath but I prefer to turn that off - and it does kinda look like an akira :-)

turning the nimbus deflector off makes it have a certain battlestar galactica feel about it.

What do you mean "awful looking?" The Trident looks pretty beast!

The only thing I don't like about the Deep Space Science Vessel is the little genitalia underneath it. I always remove its third leg when I fly the ship.

Thanks folks!

That was driving me crazy.

I looked through the ship section in the C-Store twice before I posted and somehow missed it both times. Ah well, more coffee is needed I guess.

I was quite hot on the Nimbus for a long time. Don't see it too often these days.

I never really like the aesthetics any of the DSSVs sets. I always did a kit bash variantto get something I liked. when the Nimbus class skin came out, I bought it in an instant. And I've been flying it ever since as it.
