# 1 What ship is it?
01-14-2011, 07:13 AM
I checked the whole i-net i guess but can't find any info for that ship. It's part of the fleet that sits in Gamma Orionis by the transwarp conduit. It's on the right side, it is basically a cruiser, maybe assault, it has twin-warp nacelles on each pylon. It's not in cryptic store either. It's actually a very cool design.

Right now its name escapes me. But it is a cryptic design and is pretty awesome as a fleet support ship when it gets called in. Sometime it is called a dreadnaught but it is more of a assault cruiser.

It is the Typhoon Class, I guess someone at Cryptic is a Tom Clancy Fan.

My god it is an ugly ship. I really hope it never gets added as a playable ship. The warp nacelles are actually just scaled up versions of the Cerberus ones.

The Typhoon class is indeed an atrocity to behold and I for one, am not interested in this ship class making too much of a further impact to the game. It looks like they took a Vulcan ship and slapped on undersized Constellation warp struts and called it done. Blech.

I think you're confusing the Typhoon with the Jupiter. The Jupiter's pylon arrangement is more akin to the Constellation's, plus the Typhoon actually has a more traditional Starfleet ship profile, unlike the Jupiter.

They are two different ships.

The Jupiter is simply an eye sore. The pylons and nacells are hideous. How this ship got past CBS is beyond me. I can't continue without insulting the modeler, so i won't.
