That's why I am still promoting the Steamrunner or Yeager. Both of which are Canon ships also.
Perhaps a retrofit version should be T6?

While I don't like the wait for the ship, I do feel that it being a T6 retrofit would ensure that it has some good longevity. If it's T5, it will be "good" right up until T6 ships release and it will join all the other T5 ships in the orbital garage.

tier 6 aint never gonna happen. seems like there should be some kind of advanced heavy escort added with the same style station setup as the nebula, and that should get the tier 3 and tier 5 treatment. trouble is a tier 5 akira is whats wanted

Gimme Akira refit, with special ability that reduces the shared cooldown on torpedo launchers by 3s, and HYT affects all launchers :p So with 2x photon launcher, you would be able to spit up to 8 torpedoes oooh the dreams !

id be happy with an Akira refit with 8 weapons slots and a BO setup comprable to the fleet escort. That would be enough to make me decomission my Excelsior refit and my Defiant refit :-D

Well I personally hope that one day all the ships that fans love will be added to the game. But for right now there is a large outcry for the Akira...and the Steamrunner is known as just another skin for the Akira so...

you would have to take away its dual cannon use for that, which i would be totally fine with. I'd love the ENS station to be engineering too, along with the LTCOM station.

No...
The Steamrunner was not ever known a "just another skin for the Akira". Thats the hidieous brick that is named the Zephyr that your talking about.

It is a Canon ship from ST: First Contact... Just like the Akira was and the Saber.

I'm talking about for STO...it's known as a skin for STO...you read that part right?...did you also read the part that I really hope someday everyone gets their favorite ship in STO? And for future reference I've said it many times try not to use any Wiki as "canon"...the only thing thats canon is what is in the TV shows, or Movies....if CBS aint had a hand in it...then it aint right LOL

It will be an easy thing for them to do, to intro a T5 Akira.
