Later.
Cannons i doubt but I could see it being a recon style science ship since the nebula is an engineering styled science ship(regardless of how good or bad people thing it is). Maybe make it a science flavoured excelsior with a LT Com tac.

MIND. BLOWN.

Skin options?

It looks like it shares the coloring of the Gorn science ship right now. Is there a "rust" color too, like the reference pic?

And I hereby second the motion for a Starfleet grey hull color version too.

Hmmmm ... I wonder how well it explodes when facing the might of the Klingon Empire? .... looks like something else for us to shoot at.

I wonder if the Warp nacelles will move when out of combat, according to mem-alpha...they should.

"When the warp drive was not in use, the ship's annular-warp nacelle was dropped into the vertical position; when the engines were powered down, or preparing to launch its auxiliary craft, the nacelle was folded horizontally into the primary hull."

What I still don't get is why Cryptic decided to put those old rustbuckets in when we know the Vulcans designed and built new ships to use like the T'Pau-Type.

It's like making a game about the Cold War and starting with tanks from WW1, it doesn't really make sense.

..... don't be so literal. Ifs not an exact recreation, its a "remake"

Do Vulcans really seem like the type to throw away a good design?

Remake, is that what they now call re-re-reusing ships?:p
They used to be called magic "refits" but now the magic word is "remake".

Appearently they do otherwise the Vulcan ships in "Enterprise " would have looked
like the T'Pau type...or the other way around if you prefer.
But obviously the Vulcans recognize when a design needs to be replaced instead of
reusing it to death as an excuse for a lack budget that prevents them from getting new
stuff.
And they do stop using ships
