It is entirely possible the jupiter and typhoon will be introduced, because after clammering for an ambassador class, it finally happened. These ships will come, eventually, but surely

IMO Jupiter needs a redesign, not much of one but needs one none the less.

I would buy one of these Dreadnaught in a heartbeat if STO were to make one. The Jupiter Class Dreadnaught is the one ship I have wanted to play forever. STO would make so much money from this ship I think they are making a mistake not putting this out there for us to play.

If it gets the stats from the OP I'm all for it. It's interesting what people would suggest for endgame ship stats in 2011 - 3 Turnrate, 3/3 weapons, no cannons - If that's the playable Jupiter go for it

Of course I wouldn't touch that hideous abomination with a 10 kilometer long pole but now that we have "assimilated" erm... whatever those things are called flying around and every second player has a "Scimitar" I don't mind seeing those ugly bricks in-game.

5 fore weapons and 5 aft slots.

No DHC's but 4 hangar bays. Can carry 2 frigates of the 4 slots.

I wouldn't mind seeing the Jupiter and Typhoon in-game. Just streamline the Jupiter a bit, and clean up/add detail to both designs, and you have a couple of nice rides for the game.


As for people complaining about the looks of the Jupiter, pretty is as pretty does. The Jupiter is a vessel that is supposed to convey the message "**** with us at your own peril". It's supposed to look like it means business. And it's ugliness only adds to the menacing aura and leaves no mistake of it's intended purpose. Like the also rather ugly classes of escorts, the Jupiter is designed to kill people and break things. It's not meant to be the "friendly face" of the Federation, like the Odyssey.


I also find it's design to be a nice change from the usual cookie-cutter saucer and nacelles designs we typically see. And I say this being a "cruiser man" when it come to this game.

Im sorry but its not "ugly menacing" its "ugly Ugly" If I saw this somehow irl I would go " woah thats an ugly ship lets put it out of its misery : ) " I guess you could use its ugliness as weapon : P I say this good naturdely though.

Maybe somehow smoothen the hull/saucer section together better. the nacelles though man they are ugly and i would hope they redesign them

I guess the hull saucer thing is the main thing to you Jupiter fans so as much as I dislike it I could maybe learn to like it if it was tweeked some. but the nacelle section....yikes

Those 4 warp nacelles that are way to small are just dreadful. The overall "saucer-less" design is somehow in-line with Cryptic's idea of how Starfleet vessels should look like (Star cruisers, escorts...).

The whole thing is stupid. It's concept is stupid, it's design is stupid but this is Cryptic "Trek" and they want it to be Star Wars or BSG with personnel that looks nothing like star Trek and ships that do look nothing like Star Trek so let them have it.

But of course now every FED wants that thing to be superior to the Scimitar. 10 weapons and 4 hangars and someone suggested it should "launch" light cruisers - that's just ridiculous on so many levels
