Besides, the ship really breaks the traditional looks of Starfleet "saucer-engineering hull-nacelles" configuration. Although stats may be enough to win over certain captains, I would stay away from buying this ship. To be honest, I would get sick of the look after a week of playing.
To answer your first question, yes I think that it's a marketable product. As you would/have/or will see in the plethora of pages that this thread contains, there are many who would buy the ship. In fact this is the second thread I've opened on the topic, the first having been closed with the forum overhaul. Not to mention there will undoubtably be quite a few players IG who don't use the forums who would buy it, and I know for a fact there are many players who would buy it for the sake of saying they have all the ships in the game.

Secondly, to be honest, there are MANY ships IG that break the Saucer/Engineering/Nacelles look. Most of the escorts for a start, a few science ships and even some variants of the Stargazer! I'd say that the Jupiter looks like a bigger brother to the Stargazer, and I wouldn't be remiss by saying the resemblance is a bit close.

Hope that answers your questions,

I vote "yes" as long as they re-design the Jupiter ship a bit more...Lets face it's not a "looker" but we do need a better Dreadnought with better carrier abilities than the cat ATROX ship. We can name it the "doggie" ship or the PUG ship....

Serioulsy we do need more sound carriers for FED side

Well, the Romulan faction is coming out! So I guess I'll be there waiting for the Jupiter

They'll run out of content eventually!

Hopefully they won't kill the Jupiter like they did the typhoon, and I really hope they don't make it a carrier, we've got plenty of those now.

I'd be fine with a redesign to bring her more in line with other 2409 ships, as long as it still kept the Jupiter class at it's core so you could still tell what she was originally.

Also Ew carrier

A Dreadnought? lol.


My main grip with making the Jupiter a Carrier is:

1. on the Fed side we already have 5 Carriers
-The Atrox
-The Artimage
-The 3 Vestas

2. The current pets are inadequate to be used on the Jupiter, I mean if they make it a carrier I want to launch Mirandas or Defiants out of it not runabouts.

Wait, what? How'd they kill the Typhoon? I must've missed something while trolling in Planetside
