I just don't get how the Typhoon is ugly. It looks like a bad-ass battle cruiser. Perhaps the hull could use a little work, but the saucer/nacelles/pylons are great. Jupiter on the other hand... Looks like a building made in the 1970's with 4 small nacelles strapped to it. Blech.

I agree with jexsamx. Though if they stay in the game, they should be playable.

I would never actually fly one, I just enjoy seeing them around.

They seem more like Tier 6 ships so after a level cap increase. Personally, I find them too ugly, but some people have weird tastes so if some people want to fly them, then fine. Although, I think they need a lot of work to be made into player ships since they don't seem that customizable due to their npc status.

If those are the choices for Tier 6, I think I'll stay at Tier 5

I believe it was stated in the December Ask Cryptic that the Typhoon class is being considered for release as an Admiral level ship if they have enough people that want it. Since it is a high end ship, we're not going to see it just as a free ship.

For those of us with patience, the link works just fine.

p.s. Technically that linked ship is the "Jupiter 2".

Thats politician talk.

They are not going to release T6 ships because they would have pissed not only everyone that brought C-Store VA ships down to Pack ships but also would render the entire Fleet Ship line obsolete.

What you see is what you will get because they cannot just "up" and expect people to NOT be really pissed off about their constant changing the rules of the game and then we have Lockbox ships that would create a huge blacklash against Cryptic because of a forced upgrade that existed for no reason.

T6 is not going to happen and so they can "consider" the Typhoon for Admiral ship since they know there would never be a Admiral ship because NOBODY wants to have the T5/Lockbox/Fleet system utter invalidated.
