Well in the trek universe Andorians are known for being fierce and honorable warriors who will fight to the bitter end....

So howzabout some sort of "Go Down fighting" ability that grants a bonus to damage dealing as the ship's hull drops:
- under 75% hull strength grants a 10% boost to all attack damage
- under 50% hull strenght a 25% bonus to attack damage and a 25% reduction in cooldown times for weapons arrays
- under 25% hull strength grants a 50% boost to attack damage, and a 50% reduction in weapon cooldown times
- under 10% hull strength grant a 75% boost to attack damage and a 75% reduction to weapon cooldowns...
- 0% hullstrength the vessel destruct withs higher damage output, and 2X range of standard ship destruction...

It would make the ship a fiercer opponent as it sustains more damage, and maybe give the smurfs a chance to escape destruction...
also would give captains an interesting conundrum as they would need to decide just how close to destruction they are willing to get to allow their ship to go in tradeoff for the extra damage output... a real risk vs reward

To be honest, it is smart. you will need to truely know your ship and the damage you take.

I hope, when/if the Shran-class battle cruiser comes, it won't be a Lockbox ship.

I want it to be z-store, but I almost hope it is a lockbox ship, so that it will be fleet ship quality. If it is z-store then it will be weaker then fleet and lockbox ships.

I expect and hope that if it is a cruiser then it will be a mirror of the fleet Tor'kat, turn rate of at least 10, can mount DHC, 4 tac and 4 engineering consoles, or 4 and 3

A refit version is fine, but keep the Kumari-class name. It just sounds cooler.

And it must be an escort. It performed like an escort in Enterprise, and the Feds have too many cruisers already.

I would prefer it as a shameles Tor'kaht clone. The feds may have tons of cruisers, but all of them are space whales.
Either that, or weapons firing to the side. Instead of 4 weapons fore and aft, 4 weapons right and left. Or better yet, 3 to each side and one fore/aft. Would at least give the feds a ship that can kite Donatra AND survive her torp volleys.

Does anyone else think this looks ALOT like a Qin Raptor?

They do share similarities, yes. Both the Kumari and the original Somraw Raptor were shown in Enterprise; it's conceivable that one is a modified version of the other.

Great looking ships! Enterprise had a lot of great art direction and this ship just looks andorian to me. The Vulcan ships were the coolest though.

In the youtube video of priority one visting Cryptic studios JamJamz especially emphasizes that there will be Andorian SHIPS. Meaning there will be more than one! So maybe they will release an escort and a cruiser? Or maybe just a cruiser and a shuttle. I don't know.
