Cryptic should get to doing these already and make leveling again more interesting. (and they should be FREE)

Oberth is obvious for Tier 1 Science.

The Miranda is a Light Cruiser so I'm thinking we need an Escorty type ship, something that looks it too. Maybe one of those Maquis ships which were technically Federation?

Or dare we do something else like a Kelvin-Class ship?

Yeah, I know a lot of people had problems with that movie, but I really enjoyed the Kelvin class design, and that one would technically still be part of canon.

The USS Kelvin took a lot of design risks and it worked. Plus it's not looking like it's made entirely out of car parts like the new Enterprise.

The NX Class would make a good Tier 1 ship. Maybe the New Orleans and sabre to.

New Orleans is too new. Saber... that's Tier 2. XP

NX Class is too ridiculously old. It wasn't even a Federation ship.

Basically I hate your ideas!

Kelvin was a lovely piece of ship building, would make for a nice T1 Escort.

Oberth too is much missed as an oldy-goldy and would fit right in as T1 sci.

I still vote for Rigel Class, myself.

I'd try to keep Tier 1 ships kind of old. Rigel looks like good Tier 2 or 3 material.

I would vote for the Saladin class Destroyer. it is very Kelvin-esque....

I think in order for the Oberth and other Tier 1 ships to be viable additions, there has to be some kind of mission for them. Currently once a player reaches a certain tier, the lower tier ships become useless even if you put X level weapons on them.

I know there are calls for some zones, missions, or PVP maps for runabouts. I think a similar mechanic must be added so that lower Tier ships can be useful even if the player is already an Admiral.

I personally wouldn't mind the smaller Maquis ships to be added somehow, even if it has the same mechanic as a runabout. I think Chakotay's Maquis ship in particular is large enough that it can be the Tier 1 Escort you are looking for. Plus even in that DS9 season 4 mirror universe episode, you can see that a Maquis like ship piloted by Bashir was nearly the same size as the Defiant.
