I don't think the Sovereign was ever intended to have saucer separation.

There's also not much left to go by in terms of ship classes. We already have cruisers and carriers, escorts effectively serve as destroyers and science vessels tend to fall somewhere in the middle being akin to either corvettes or light cruisers.

The larger cruiser class ships such as the galaxy, sovereign and odyssey are essentially battleships or dreadnaughts in terms of size and function.

Yes it was, the original designs for the Sovereign Class starship was designed to have a saucer seperation ability.

*Me*Why don't you just step away from the weapons console. You and I both know that you couldn't hit that cube, even if it was right in front of us.
*Junior Tactical Officer* But sir the cube IS right in front of us.
*Me* EXACTLY! Its right in front of us and you still missed it! Just step away from the console.

John Eaves drafted up design sketches for Sovereign saucer sep (which were then published in Star Trek: The Magazine several months after Nemesis), but none of the TNG films featuring the 1701-E called for it, nor was the physical model set up for it (to be fair, neither were the two or four foot Galaxy models).

I'm confused. You're asking for a saucer sep ability for the assault cruiser? How's that calling for a new class of ship?

Either have a new class or have it so that the Assualt Cruiser have saucer sep. I'm looking for some new ship classes and once I find some I will post the links

Something like this would be nice to see

http://fc02.deviantart.com/fs48/f/20...njapan1988.jpg

Physical Attributes:
Length: 1525m (5008 ft)
Height: 173m (567.6 ft)
Width: 619m (tentative) (2030 ft)
Decks: 26 (5.5m per deck)

Warp (Max): 9.998
Warp (Cruise): 8.042
Impulse (Max): .75c
Equipment Information:
1x Generation 2 Benamite Enhanced Quantum Slipstream Core
2x Centauri-Utopia Dilithium-less Reactor Cores
4x Fusion Auxiliary Power Nodes
4x Fusion Powered Impulse Clusters

I think it would work perfectly in STO

Hmm. Weird to me then. Cause saucer sep exists in-game. And the assault cruiser exists in-game. Seems like the easy peasy solution is to ask for the assault cruiser to get saucer sep.

New class of ship is a whole other can of worms. And also, would be really strange to have an assault cruiser, and a totally different class of ship that looks just like one but can separate, especially since two cruisers already can separate (the galaxy and the odyssey) and one more is having sep worked on (the Galaxy-X).

I'm just want voice my opinions. To me I think have another ship with saucer sep would be fine. Either that or bring in the Perception Class that i posted a link to. Either way it would be nice to see a new ship
