I concur. Why the bridges seen in movies I-VI aren't available to plyers from tier 1 on up is beyond me. Players had the expectation that interiors would be the correct match to the ship they were getting. So far it has been more miss than hit on that despite the highly vocal and varied demands i find throught the player community.

Reminds me still no Soyuz-, Constellation- or NX-91001-class ships ...


On a more positive note: will there be a free prototype version of the Kumari?

Gotta love the timing of this announcement, when so many people are up in arms over Cryptic's most recent decision which has really made people take a hard look at where the real issues lie with Cryptic's design direction.

Does this come with new playable content?

No?

Well Cryptic can keep it. I don't buy fluff.

Sorry just couldn't resist, no bad intended.

Actually it would have been nice to give the Fed. their first battlecruiser in the form of the Kumari, that would be more authenitc with the original. Andorian battlecruiser would have been a nice opportunity to do that. And then throw a sci-vessel bundle similar to the Vesta for the KDF so there won't be complaints about Fed. getting their kind of ship or getting anything over KDF at all.

Fantasies and wishfull thinking aside, I was looking forward to the Andorian ship, but the way it is now, I'm more impressed about the unique bridge being the one from ENT. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that these are bad ships in any way, I have no doubt that they will be loved by many players. But, IMHO, they are a bit all over the place. I mean, holy overgrown cannons, Batman! And for my taste, the material is kind of too colourfull and shiny like a pimpmobile.
Forget Andorians, I'll need to make a char. named Snoop Dogg if I decide to fly one!

Why doesn't this forum have an ignore button.
No need for ignorance.

The quote might be an extreme example but the message stands; if an issue is affecting lots of people but not you the issue still stands. If you don't have empathy for others don't expect them to have empathy when you need it.

On topic: looking forward to this ship but wish it was a single release rather than a pack. I could just buy 1 but I want it all.

I'm hoping this ship has the turn rate of the Defiant.

A HUGE thank you to Cryptic for the Mogh-class battle cruiser!

I'm calling that as a NEGATIVE (I figure 15-16) but SIX DHCs will ease the pain, if I'm right. The tradeoff will be that it's toothless if not aimed at a target so the maneuverability needs to be modest.

They called attention to the six wing cannon placements.

That says to me that we're looking at six fore weapons, two more than any other ship in the game.

I might be the one that is wrong, but I think you're missreading their post.

"Nobody can say "no" to a ship with two huge wing-mounted cannons, especially three of them."

The way I understand it:

Nobody can say "no" to a ship with two huge wing-mounted cannons - 2 huge wing cannons, one for each wing.

Especially three of them - not cannons per wing, 3 ships with huge wing cannons, each wing has one.

Gorgeous ships. I hope the turnrate is at least Defiant level.
