It may not been in exact numbers. But it would be as the dev says : our view is that it should work as this and that, and should fill this role, its special ability should do this at the cost of this etc.

There are some stuff you dont see from just the engineering database on sol station, such as inertia etc, and you can know it, only if you buy it.
I would certainly love to know their stats. But I don't expect any real odd layouts. Even though I would love to see something new.

Beside, there can be also bugs.
Well, it's not actually our job to find all the bugs. They have a QA that should do at least some of that - some stuff will only occur if enough people test it, bug I would say that a new ship might actualy one of the things that is least likely to be bugged. Unlike a mission where you maybe went zig where the developers always wend zag.

Maybe not bug, but something like a feature about noone thought before, like that you cant go full impulse without the saucer etc. Stuff which could have been fixed, if people did test it.

The saucer stuff was known during the tribble test, though. It seems more it was not considered a big problem, at least not enough to delay the release or over some other bug they fixed or feature they

That is just a wild guess of mine:
I *think* because so many players actually requesting exchangable pods (which is the unique Nebula feature after all) Cryptic might be heading for a way to actually exchange them, even if it is just done by customization options. CapnLogan stated the base of the Nebula is designed so that pods could be exchanged, but IIRC his post sounded like it wasn't actually planned to have this feature. Maybe they just need more time to iron this stuff out.
On the other note, a reason is definatly to not release too much stuff at the same time, giving players new stuff on a regular basis.


In terms of Excelsior I would also like to know some of the stats before the release, this way I can at least think about stuff like weapons, consoles and BO power layouts and plan ahead. The stats for the Galaxy-X also leaked through a bit before it has been released.

If the Excelsior need to be bought, I will no problem. I've been saving for STO for quite sometime now. I can afford it.
