I dont think he said 5th forward slot.

I suspect this is the mystical broadside Andorian cruiser, no idea what it means but considering the Odyssey pack I hope you like a Escort with SA ....

Why do I get the feeling the questions are picked to match already written answers?

The Friday picture thread say this isn't the broadside ship. So if that is true the conclusion is more forward weapon slots. It is speculation until they reveal the ship stats next week though.

We have instincts for a reason. They aren't always right, but most of the time they are.

Hearing about the Rom ships getting reserved for a faction is highly pleasing.

This escort though . . .
I seem to remember a BOP thread where players asked for 5 forward weapons and got shot down because the game coding couldn't allow it. Maybe i'm thinking of the warp core thread though. But most importantly, why is the andorian ship colored like the Atrox?

The Somraw, K'tinga, D'Kyr, D7, Kumari, Xindi carrier, Xindi escort, and the T'Varo are all older than the Constitution Refit and yet they are tier 5. The Constellation is made up primarily of Connie refit parts and it is tier 5, there is no logical reason whatsoever for the no tier 5/6 connie rule.

Limited time ships, such as those in the lock boxes, are intended to be proportionally rare and difficult to obtain versus Fed and KDF ships which are the default and easiest ships to obtain.
The trouble with that is that a good chunk of the playerbase has at least one lockbox ship by now, even if they're all different ones. So while no one specific lockbox ship outnumbers proper Starfleet/KDF ships, lockbox ships in general are really common.

Anyway, thanks for answering my question.

So the update in May is basically an import of the Neverwinter character creation process into STO and an extension of the romulan reputation system to allow a romulan character to be created on the appropriate faction if you go high enough?

Edit: Oh and a Kumari with 5 or 6 forward facing guns.

Neriz --- Eleven --- S'alesh --- Nizalay and maybe the odd Fed char too.

wow, that was the worst 'ask cryptic' yet. the only real solid information i got from that is: "there will be a ship introduced that could possibly have 5 fore or 5 aft slots."

Somebody in the picture said thread that Geko had stated that. However, they did not state either a source or a timeframe on when that was said...

...we'll definitely have to wait until they do the stats.

Because even in regard to the Ask Cryptic, it's not necessarily the Kumari that Stahl was talking about...

...but we like to speculate, right?

Q: (carcharodon1975) ?Beneath the Raptor?s Wings? has set people?s hope high on getting a playable Romulan faction in May. My question is? are we getting a playable Romulan faction in May?

Dstahl: We are not ready to begin discussing the details of what is in our May update, however the reference definitely suggests that it is related to Romulans in some way. We will share more news about the update and give a clearer response to your question as we get closer to May.
