Who are they trying to fool by calling them blue and black?
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 rule needs to change.

Seriously, instead of introducing another "cool" gun overloaded Escort, you should focus on making iconic ships like the Galaxy Class a bit more fun to fly.
I don't know if you ever tested it, but especially the Galaxy Class is just a catastrophe in your game.

Personally i stopped taking this game for serious a long time ago.
I think it is a open secret that STO is just a Star Trek theme park, so where is the problem in making all ships fun to fly, not just escorts?

I have finished.
i think you're quite alone with this problem... i flew galaxy with my tank engineer captain and it was just fine. a bit slow i can give that, but every cruiser is slow for Christ's sake... i liked it's boff and console park too. now i fly a fleet advanced heavy crusier retro, and that's really great too. the playing style i need to fill the role of the tank is naturally different from what i used to play as in my escorts, but i find tanking also fun. and i have also have a healer sci, so i've played every "classic" rpg gamestyle in this game...

Both the Vesta Line and the Chel Grett are in dire need of unique bridges. Hopefully this will be addressed in the May Update.

Wait! What? Do we have to purchase all three or something?

Klingons = May (with the Romulans). They're probably saving all the KDF content until then.

Ditto. This might just be the first zen ship I actually buy. Helps that my main ENG toon is an Andorian too.

Maybe its the chrome that bothers me so much, either that or the giant wing guns, maybe both. Don't get me wrong, its a good looking ship, it just doesn't look like an Andorian ship to me, or really a Star Trek ship either.
Hopefully the D'Kyr will receive similar treatment down the line.

I'm curious, but in order to mix and match, would I need to purchase all three of these vessels? I made a post in another thread the other day asking the question of whether the Vesta was customizable and was told it isn't. Yet equally, I've read people say that you can customize the Vesta, so I'm wondering whether these ships are customizable only once the actual 'pack' has been purchased, rather than the individual vessel. Could someone clear this up for me?

I've two FED toons (one ENG, the other SCI) and I'd actually consider purchasing both a Kumari and Vesta (though I don't want the packs). I don't however like the Science-Vesta and thus would wish to modify it. I'm not going to buy it if it isn't customizable without buying all three.

I will not be buying one of these. I will not be buying anything until you stop screwing over the player base. Once again you have staunched the flow of resources in your ever-worsening grindfest game. Enough is enough.

You need all three to use all the parts. You can only use the parts of the ones you own. So if you buy only one of them, you can only use the parts of the one you own. You own only two, you can only use the parts of those two.

One player's payment loss isn't gonna change much, sorry.

And btw, I don't see this as screwing us over, and I'm as affected by the FM removal as anyone. (And another btw, respond to the FM issue on it's own thread: don't drag it into others)

Except that their handling of the FM situation is in direct conflict of many peoples' desire to purchase a ship like this. Until a resolution is reached, many people, such as myself and others will not be buying another ship.

Also, seriously? Releasing the Andorian ship just days after the FM strike down in the Foundry? It's like you guys knew you were going to take serious heat for it and decided "We'll release this ship they've been clamoring for to shut them up" so it can be swept under the rug and forgotten about.

Oh and the ship looks nice, too bad it couldn't be what it was supposed to be. Battlecruisers don't fly circles around other ships and use pew pew cannons. The original from Enterprise was over 300 meters long, had some of the first deflector shields, and used 5 energy beam weapons. I thought this would be followed, should have known better.

We've known the Andorian ships were coming this month for weeks, I think its just a coincidence.
