I don't mean to be greedy, I am truly loving STO, coming from WoW...it is refreshing to get rewards for being a decent player I.e. Stfs and fleet actions. Not to mention how there are actual devs that reply to concerns and in some cases just for sh!ts and giggles; that is just phenomenal and I thank Cryptic for the gaming experince thus far. I digress now.

Escort players are finally getting a "new" ship to fly, well a ship that has been reskinned and having an ability (through a console) to use a brand spanking new ability...I love it.

But...there was talk of an andorian ship on the table that seemed to have lost all of its hype and interest, no one even knew what kind of ship this was going to be and from its specs, it could have been a contender to be the new escort.

Does anyone know anything about this ship? And I mean anything at all...escort?cruiser?what the special ability would be? (I'm guessing mine related)

and just some more food for thought....I know that a sci ship was just released, an escort ship is on the way and that would leave a spot for a cruiser. There is enough cruisers atm, as well as scis. Next ship should be another escort or a kdf one.

Also, we just got 1 fed and 4 kdf race ships added to the game, games are creatures of habit, more race ships are on the way and the only one we know of is the andorian...what does that say? Speculation time

The new Engineering report has moved the Andorian ship from "In development" to "In Discussions"... that's about all the news.

Probably has an awe-inspiring air conditioner.

I literally lol'd .

Its all speculation so far, but based on the vessel's size and performance in Enterprise, I'd absolutely assume that it's an escort, or an engineering focused escort (I.e. Commander tactical, LTC eng). Which is sadly what we've all been screaming about for an Akira refit...*sigh*.

The vessel in the show also used blue energy weapons, so...hoping for either retrofit phasers or tetryons to come standard. It definitely wasn't a pushover vessel, and its very cool looking. Luckily for me, my tactical captain is in fact Andorian, so he'll feel right at home in one!

I love my new Andorian Tac, so now I'm drooling over the idea of this. I hope we can get a screenshot or something

I wonder if they'll use a broad minded design or shackle it to strictly being unimaginative canon, which doesn't give many glimpses of it possible potential or reflection of teh Andorian culture?
