Since the Klingons got a unique Carrier class added to their standard ones (Bird-of-Prey, Raptor, and Battle Crusier), I'm wondering what kind of unique class could be given to the Federation, if or when Cryptic decides to add one? (it doesn't have to be a Carrier, that would only make the Klingon players mad)
Right now, we have Cruisers, Escorts, and Science Vessels. What kind of class could the Federation use, especially since it's in the middle of war?
And please, no aruguments about the fact that the Feds have more content then the Klingons, that's not what this thread is for.
The Nebula refit is unique in that it's a cruiser/science vessel hybrid rather then a true science vessel. I assume any Akira refit done will probably be an escort/cruiser hybrid rather then a standard escort update. I'm not sure the game needs any more specific class ships: IE, it would be cool for the Feds to have a carrier but it's not really necessary.
Dreadnought - We already have the Galaxy-X - what about the Jupiter class, or something less ugly?
Frigate - Half escort/half science. Light and packs a punch like an escort, but has support abilities.
Scout - Super light, fast and nimble, with emphasis on gathering intel, and maybe debuffs. Think VEnture class from Insurrection.
