# 1 Playble Esemar class Warbird?
02-12-2014, 12:18 AM
I was looking at the wiki entry for the Fed mission "S'harien's Swords" the other day. Does anyone else think it would be super awesome if the Esemar (class) was a playable ship? I would blow out the coffers of all of my toons to get one.

Isn't the Esmar just a Mogai with the Borg set equipped...?

Not really, it's skin is Assimilated, but it has the capabilities of the npc D'deridex warbird. So ingame, it would probably have the base stats of the DD retrofit. It is it's own ship, refitted from the Mogai base.

The thing is that NPC ships don't have the same set of abilities as the player ship, in some cases they're not even in the same class.
Of course that goes in both directions: the NPC ships have slots that differ from players ships and player ships differ from NPC ships.
So conclusions about the layout the player version of this ship would have are...unwise.

I was not the first one to make assumptions.

While it would be nice to have the Esemar as another Mogai/Valdore/Norexan skin, I doubt it will happen.

Although, that does give me an idea. The Khnial-class Tal Shiar Adapted Battle Crusier was augmented from the D'Deridex, and the Llaihr-class Tal Shiar Adapted Destroyer was augmented from the Dhelan. Could there be a Tal Shiar adapted ship created by augmenting a Mogai?

My thoughts exactly, it was Augmented from a Mogai Heavy Warbird in the mission, so perhaps that could tie to something in-game. Though there would need to be an expansion of the Tal Shi'ar set.

I had an idea similar to davidwford's.
How about a second Tal Shiar Lockbox (call it Tal Shiar Beta or something) with the remaining known RSE used ships converted to Borg tech?
The Khnial is an adapted D'deridex while the Llaihr is and adapted Dhelan.
We know the RSE also uses the Mogai and the T'varo so it would make sense there are at least a handful of adapted models of those ships around for special purposes.

The adapted T'varo could be their version of a "science" ship in the sense it is used to gather intelligence on others and provide EW support in combat.

Yes, that sounds like we've made quite a plan here. I'd like to see a Nanite Disruptor Spinal Lance on the playable Esemar. Thoughts?

Isn't the Esemar still using the old Mogai model from before LoR, albeit assimilated. It could do with an update either way.
