# 1 What ship is this?

It appears in the Shipyard of ESD, and there's also a statue of it somewhere else (can't remember where).

It looks kind of like an Envoy with Typhoon stylings.

What is it?

I think it may be a variant of the sovereign. A mixture of Imperial hull with the sovvie itself, saucer belonging to one of the other variants. Could be, and probably am, wrong though. My other thought is that it may actually be one of those small sci ships.

The nacelles are throwing me. it may be another example of one of the early Cryptic kitbashes similar to the Typhoon.

I think it's one of Perpetuals designs, it's very low slung and that saucer is unusual. It's really hard to say from that angle. but the warp nacelles and the impulse engines look very much like those in perpetual concept art. I've been trying to find the images online, I swear I've seen it rendered.

I think it's labeled as "unknown" on this picture.



...Oh hey look, it's the Ushaan.

If you look at the Trailer for STO when it first came out that particular federation ship was in it. Plus some Screenshots showing the ships name as Cryptic. I believe it was supposed to be in the game but because of some (Unknown to me) reason they never put the ship in the game. I think a varient of the ship is in the trailer.

you mean the one at 0:28, and again at 1:00? yeah that does look similar.

Hmm... at 1:25 there's a nice shot of what looks like a Sovereign variant with a bridge connecting the two nacelles.

That just looks like the Typhoon at a weird angle.

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.

No the Typhoon has a much larger nav deflector and has the doubled nacelles and this ship is too short and rounded to be a Sovereign variant. It's a pity these ships never ended up in game as anything but wrecks although I think the Aquarius is based on a Perpetual design.
