# 1 A new starship class Hercules
06-14-2011, 06:50 AM
I think STO/Cryptic & Paramount/CBS should have another starship design contest.

For the 2nd ann. of STO and for the upcoming 20th ann. of DS9 in 2013

To design the next class of monohull starship to replace the aging Defiant starship type in the area of Heavy Escort..

It should be a tier 3-5 class.

Tier 3 would be a normal Escort,

Tier 4 would be a Heavy Escort*.

Tier 5 would be a Fleet Escort*.

Weapon's Slots:
It would have 4 Forward firing weapons* and 4 Rear firing weapons.

(*= plus the 2 fixed dual heavy cannons firing forward on both the Heavy and Fleet Escort. The Type of dual heavy cannons you what to use are upto the player to choose)

Device Slots*
Tactical Slots (5), Science Slots (3), Engineering Slots (5)

BOFT Personal Slots*
Tactical (4), Science (2), Enigneering (3) and 2 univeral slots.

(*=These device and personal slots are for the Heavy and Fleet Escort types)

The regular Escort design type would be set-up like the tier 3 Defiant. Since this is the class and Design that is going replace it.

I personally think the alpha secton of the MVAM Of the Promethus is a good place to start.

I hope this idea catches on. If not oh well. At least I posted the idea.

Well, Rumor has it that the next series of special weekly missions are going to take place around DS9 and with the Borg returning. With their series of Deep Space Encounters.

I think we need a new class of starship. That can being to handle what the future in STO has to offer and it will be of the current time period as well. Which is always good for us.

Being realistic - the first contest had what a 2 or 3 month open period for entries. A flawed website that allowed copying of ones work. Then it was twice as long to even hear who a winner was and now it will take a couple months for it to be fleshed out in game. So we are looking at what mid 2012 or late 2012 ( for a new contest) before its in game. I also doubt CBS wants to do another contest this close to the first one.

Well,

They now have hindsight to guide them. They are going to be adding newer and more current starship to go with the 2409/2410 timeline and since they replaced the Enterprise.

Can you name me another well know starship that even comes close to the Enterprise.

I can name only 5 and 3 of them are starship classes

The Constituation, The Excelsior, The Galaxy and Finally The Defaint and Voyager.

In which the Intrepid has already been reworked to some degree and it has it refit type.

The Defiant is in the same boat as it were. But how old are these designs any way.

Also It will keep those who wish they had entered the design the new Enterprise a second chance and like I said it will also tie in with the upcoming 20th ann. of DS9 in 2013.

Ahh I see you said DS9 20th ann. I thought you meant the next features series this year which the focus is over near ds9 and all. For this year it is a little to soon and not enough time for this. But for that they have time.

Well

They can introduce it during that time or take a poll during that time about a new fan design contest to replace the Defiant as well for the 20th ann. of DS9.

This "escort" is better equipt than any heavy cruiser I know of. I might be wrong. Not even the KDF Carriers or Negh'Var or any Federation Cruiser for that matter, which are mammoths in comparison to escorts, boast anything remotely similar.

Well,

This is 2409/2410 and they are at war with the Klingons and are have what I call brush fire encounters with the Remens and the Romulian and the Borg are making themselves known.

So, You could say that they are looking to the future and seeing what is going on.

They need a new class type of starship capable of doing what the orginal Defiant was designed to do and that is to take names, While kick major butt.

I always use my escorts. In full frontal charge mode and to do that. With what is going to becoming down the road in STO.

You'll need an escort this tough
