Ugh.. That's the ship everyone keeps campaigning for?
For the love of all that's holy and good in this world, why?
I think it's an overlong, humpbacked, hideous mess of a ship..
Hm.. Yes. That is it. I hate this! It is revolting!
o whatever man. whats the point of adding new ships if all they end up doing is adding borg stuff and reman shields on it. does it realy matter one single bit how a ship looks these days ? bring in the lego ships for all i care. more stuff for people to screw over.
Me and all my friends love the Vesta class. It looks like it would be the natural progression given the direction of ships we've seen on TV and on the Big Screen. Its absolutely beautiful to my eyes, and filled to the brim with new technologies and capabilities. I would do anything to see this in-game, and I'm surprised at the opposition in this thread.
My only wishes are these two:
1) It gets added to the game, sooner then later. We know the Ambassador and the Andorian Battlecruiser are coming soon. Make the Vesta after that?
2) Give it teeth and tech. Let it mount cannons and give it a decent turn rate. Remember, this is an ADVANCED ship. I'd like to see it as the big kid on the block. Science ship w/ a decent amount of crew (300, 400?) that can mount cannons (but keep the traditional 3x2, or maybe something creative like 4x2?) and have somewhat of a buff to shields like all science ships do, but maybe not as great. a real, literal hybrid. Let's make it interesting, fun, and decently balanced!
Oh one last thing... accord to the books it has a runabout launching pad. So if Feds can't have carriers, can we carry three runabouts? Just a beginning to the idea... there is a lot we can do with this ship!
Seems that everyone either loves the design or hates it.
I'm going to go with the love it side. I remember hearing that it might end up being a combat-oriented science ship; which I think is a really good idea. I've tried other sci ships but I'm just not liking the other designs and I think would definitely buy the Vesta from the C-store if it came out.
Count me in on the hate side, this ship is hidous and doesn't look trek to me at all, fits right in with the fleet escorts category for me, aka burn them, nuke em, vapourise what is left, and send the gasses into a black hole.
Anyway that is my opinion for those who love it, hope you enjoy it once it comes out.
