Since quite often searching these forums is looking for the proverbial needle in a haystack, has there been talk of what role the Nausicaan ship they're working on will fill? Since we've had a couple of new Klingon ships added that fill the niche of science ship and cruiser, will the Naussy's been an escort? Or since the ship is already in-game as an NPC Nausicaan battleship, does that mean it'll be a cruiser-type as well?
And what officer stations? I'd like to start planning a build for this ship, but I'd like to know what I'm building for.
There hasn't been any info from the devs about the Naussican ship except for a few screenshots. You guesses about it as as good as any other. But I personally expect it to be tactic in bent for ship class and/or it's special ability.
Other than rumors of some sort of "crushing" ability (backed up by Dstahl saying somewhere that the ship has some complex animations in the works), nothing's really been said. Also, it's apparently been bumped down to a Lvl. 41 Brigadier General ship.
Which I'm actually fine with. The Feds have a ton of Lvl. 41 ships, but only 3 VA ships (which supposedly aren't anything to write home about), while most people seem to like the 4 new Klingon Lvl. 51 ships, but they have fewer options than the Feds do at Lvl. 41, so it all sorta balances out.
Well if you look in your Captain ship abilities, there is a new 'destroyer' classification that has a note on the bottom that says "Note: Currently there is no ship that uses this ability". So I would have to assume that this is the ship in question. If you saw pictures of the ship with it's spider/crab like 'legs' then a crushing ability would be rather logical... as well as just freakin amazing to see. I am certainly HOPING for that!
I'm excited that we are getting a nausicaan ship (The designs for these are absolutely awesome). I do wish that eventually we'd get the Talon. I know for both myself and a lot of friends we all find the Talon (battleship) to be one of the most beautiful ships in the game. (Its my personal favorite ship)
