It would make a great skin for the Fleet Escort! Should about that size.

The OP forgot the letter "e" in something.

It doesn't need to be a direct port of that holoship. I've personally always liked the aesthetic of the Dauntless, why not just use the shape?

One of the images there makes it smaller than the Intrepid, yes, but I always feel the Dauntless may have been inspiration for the Deep Space science ships (Trident etc.). Maybe make it a scaled up version as a variant for those? If not, as mentioned it'd make an interesting escort and the world knows we need more variation there.

For extra out of the box thinking, why not make it a KDF (or some other faction down the road) ability for some kind of new holoship. Failing all that, just make it as a holoemmiter from latinum!

All opinions only, just like the ship.

Thanks.

I always thought that the T5 Excelsior needs some other styled ship costume, because i know many who like to fly it, but just as many hate it's appearance. So i thought that a costume which does have a completely different design could be just what that ship needs.

Btw. i like the looks of the Dauntless a lot.

Of course it had to be larger than in the show, i think about 2/3 of the lenght of the Excelsior would be sufficient, because it is much more compact and massive IMHO.

Live long and prosper.

I just had another (good?) idea.
After testing the Galaxy -R, especially the Battle mode i thought that it would be nice to have a ship that permanently like this (of course a bit weaker fo the sake of balance.)
What about making the Dauntless similar to the Galaxy -R in battle mode?
Of course it has to be a bit weaker, but i think it would be fun to have something like a light, agile and fast tactical focused cruiser.

What do you think about this:

Tac: Lt. + Ensign
Engineering: Cmdr. + Lt.
Science: Lt.
(Maybe) Universal: Ensign

Weaopns:
4 Fore; 3 Aft
Devices: 3

Consoles:
Enineering: 4
Science: 2
Tac: 2 or 3

Turn rate and initia like the Galaxy -R in Seperated mode.
Hull: 35000
Power: +5 Weapons, +5 Engines (or Shields)

The ship itself (the model) should be bigger than shown in the show, i thing the size of a Akira class or a bit shorter than a Excelsior would be sufficient.

And special ability to increase Quantum Slipstream velocity to, say... 25? Because the Dauntless WAS the original Quantum Slipstream thing...

Personally, I think this vessel would fit in well as a T-6 Science vessel archetype, when the ranks for up to Fleet Admiral are opened up. Given the Jupiter Dreadnought is likely a T-6 cruiser choice, a Sci version is needed.

And given the Galaxy-X is in the game in a rather flimsy excuse, the Dauntless Class would have an easier time of it.

Now we just need a T-6 Tactical vessel choice... :p

Are we getting the Vesta in S5? Last I heard it was in negotiation limbo.
