Yeah. They're upgrading NPC ships throughout the game. When you do Project Nightingale now the Noble is a Nebula instead of a Hope class science ship now. It's really cool to see all the changes throughout the game.
Awesome looking....now which Admiral do we bug now to get it?
BTW....will this ship have any special extra of just the vanilla BOFF seating like the Vor'Cha T5? The reason I am asking is well...completely different ship not standard Starfleet and which class it will be is the question - science, escort or engineer (this one is the least likely considering that engineers gotten at least four new ships)?
PS. Cool to see more varied ships out in space consider how expanse space is and the Federation size and varied alien species.
I'm going to bet that the Vulcan Ship will be a Science Vessel, and the upcoming Andorian ship will be an Escort. Just a guess though, as I think they were both considered cruisers in ENT.
Very true...the D'Kyr-type ship would be simply a heaviy armed science vessel. They were by terms Combat Cruisers that were used for combat while having equal capacity of a science vessel. So more likely a another Recon vessel-type. Though hope it does have some small ability like to carry dual cannon (and not the heavy type), give the science type and tacs something to fly worthy of combat nature.
