A lot of people are ship collectors and others just want to fly around a Ferengi vessel. When the T5 Excelsior was announced, I decided it was my primary ship even before stats we announced. People will always have their favorite ships. That's why we have constant debate about removing the tier system so people can fly the Miranda at T5.
I've had terrible luck with these stupid boxes too. IMO they overpriced the master keys for the number of them you have to go through to get a ship.
I have a mercenary-themed character that I'd like to get a d'kora or jem'hadar attack ship for, maybe a galor, something that doesnt shout federation right away at least =P If anyone would take trade in energy credits or data samples/particle traces, I might be able to do that.
With the studio model being 90% the size of a Prometheus and having missile launchers in canon (which sounds like fancy cannon/torpedo hybrids), I'm guessing it's an escort.
Lower turn than the bugship. If I had to guess, it's probably very similar to the Guramba but probably without the siege mode and with its own gimmicks.
Yeah but the Ferengi like their spacious cargo holds (they're traders after all) which would cut down on maneuverability. I'd guess as something about halfway between an escort and a cruiser, like a Galor or a Vor'Cha-R actually, 10-13 degrees per second. Guramba-level is just too nimble for a 'space galleon.'
Of course tomorrow morning the stats will come out, and I'll be completely wrong and going I WANT!!!
