doubt we'll see hangers added to existing ships to be honest , but hopefully when the long awaited saucer sep comes for the dreadnought , it'll buff it up somewhat too , good lord it needs it

i was thinking the vesta would be a niche ship that only the longtime fans would use , but cryptic have turned it into an absolute beast lol

I was wondering this too, also are they restricted to the vesta only, or could they be move to say a Defiant so you can have some of your firepower training your aux instead of weapon power, keeping your overall powerlevels higher (since both recharge seperately)

This singlehandly makes most sci/crusier ships useless.

Even most f the other c-store ships. THis is where the makers need to get off whatever there smoking and actully play the agame in full context or need to be replaced.

Prepare for the groups of this ship and only see this ship.

//edit: after reviewing the stats and seeing that all 3 are the same SCI heavy layout.... REDACTED... will not buy

Vesta Line wolfpacks will be untouchable! LOL. Not even captain Liam Neeson can stop them!

For the first time in my life, come S7 I will feel like I own three Ferraris in the garage.

Hmm, will have to think whether getting the bundle or not (If it were one ship for 2500 Zen, I'd get it at launch day - as I promised somewhere on the forums).

That said, I'll get it in some shape sooner or later.

Now on to the currently advertised specs:

Why would you add a hangar? I see no reason for it. Looks like you add a hangar to each and any new ship nowadays. Not too happy about that.

Maybe the 13 turn rate is a little too high, DHCs work fine on 10 point Vor'chas (and derivatives). You could lower it to say 11 or 10 and increase the hull somewhat. It won't seem so overpowered and would fall in line with the expectations coming from its size.

(NOTE: We don't yet know about the inertia value, would be funny if they killed the 13 turn rate with an Odyssey-like inertia.)

Overall, I'd say tune it down a notch, it'll still remain a go-to ship for any type of play. Get rid of the hangar, maybe get rid of the subsystem targeting as well (will probably not be used that much, anyway) and for the turn rate, see higher.
TOIVA, Toi Vaxx, Toia Vix, T'vritha, To Vrax: Bring in the Allegiance class
Toi'Va, Ti'vath, Toivia, Tia Vex, Toi'Virth: Add Tier 6 KDF Carrier and Raider.
Tae'Va, T'Vaya, To'Var, T'Vira, To'Vrak: Give us Asylums for Romulans

Don't make ARC mandatory! Keep it optional only!

The HULL is still way too low.

This is a HUGE ship - the Wells is also Science ship and it has a 30K HULL!! And it is much smaller.

Please make an adjustment. I hear lots of people on the fence over the low hull for such a big ship.
