# 1 New Ship Ideas. . .
04-17-2013, 03:14 AM
So, we haven't had a thread discussing ideas for new ships for the KDF lately. Figured I'd start one and try to get some discussion going.

I don't have any specific ship designs thought out, as I'm not especially good at that. . .but I feel the next ships the KDF should get should be Gorn, Orion, Nausicaan, or Lethean.

We need 1-3 more Gorn, Orion, and Nausicaan ships, and a Lethean ship, all at tier 5. Preferably in the destroyer/raptor/sci ship range, as the KDF could use more of those. Especially with destroyers/raptors. For tier 5, we have 8 easily-obtainable raptors/destroyers available. I'm not counting the Pegh'qu or the Krenn Temporal Destroyer, because those are expensive/difficult to get. . .and I'm not counting the Mirror Qin Raptor, because it's scarcely different from the original Qin and it's still gimped in turning axis.

So, anyone have specific design guidelines they'd like to see followed? Speak up!

Ferasan's are very popular so perhaps a escort carrier for them would be fitting.

I'd like to see a c-store Battlecruiser that is Lethean or Klingon in nature that is fairly different from what we have. Not everyone is into fleet ships due to their one character for 2000 Zen nature and so something that c-store purchasers can get and use on various different characters would be a welcome addition.

I'd also like to see a decent science ship come to the c-store that or bring in a free one and buff the current Gorn ship to be better than a differently skinned Fed science vessel.

Honestly, all I want is for player versions of the Orion Corvette and Gorn Vishap Frigate to be made available as alternatives to the starter BoP when we get to start at lvl 1 again (maybe a Nausicaan Syphon Frigate too). Those and a Fleet Dacoit. Anything else is gravy.
Exploration suggestions thread - give it a read

BTW, you'd pronounce it 'Cap'n Manks'

I protest the removal of exploration clusters

They would be cool but I don't think very successful if they add it as a c-store option like the NX, Oberth etc

I can't imagine a lot of KDF players would buy them considering most of us are already at level 50 with one or more characters. Now if they were say thrown into a Gorn, Orion and Nausicaan pack with uniforms, weapons, duty officers etc like the Fed ENT and TOS bundles it might be worth the investment for a lot of us. Can't go wrong with a free ship when you're after uniforms.

I want a Fleet Ch'tang BoP. Love the skin and don't understand why it's only available at Captain level.

No more bops and destroyers with a lame 15 turnrate!

Honestly, we really need an escort-esque ship with 5 tac consoles that isn't the Bug.

And maybe we should also be asking for what we DON'T want as well. Like I don't want another Battlecruiser. I'm looking forward to my Fleet Negh'var and everything, but we don't really need more BCs.

Also, wouldn't mind a Lethean-built ship of some kind, I don't care what it is.

K'Vort class Bird of Prey is most needed and is missing from the game and all I can think is why is it not in the game already.

What I would love to see is a Klingon Tactical pack a Klingon Science pack and a Klingon Engineering pack.

The Tactical pack would have a 5 Tactical console K'Vort , Vor'Cha and Negh'Var.

The Science pack would have the K'Vort , Vor'Cha and Negh'Var with Sensor Analysis and favoring Science consoles.

The Engineering pack would have the K'Vort , Vor'Cha and Negh'Var favoring Engineering consoles.

I know this would probably never happen.

I would not mind a 5 forward 3 aft Battle Cruiser with 5 tac console slots for the Klingons.
Otherwise I think we klinks are okay and the Devs need to work on the other races in the KDF.
Where is our ferasin vessels for example?

The BOP from Enterprise and the Augment Klingon ship would be interesting.
