The hole in that theory is we already have a Wolf 359 wreckage ship in game...the Cheyenne. That was the only time it was ever seen on screen.

THose are torpedo bays. nothing more.

THe New orleans would of made the perfect tier 3 cruiser.

hmm dont know about it being an escort however. that line is very well covered.

Still an intresting idea.

That is right. It is a hole. It was a hole in the heavy cruisers that needed filled, when they stumbled across the U.S.S. Cheyenne as a wreck in space, and said to them selves, "Hmmmm... Maybe".
So we have a "Weak" Canon ship as the matriarch of Heavy Cruisers.

Not saying it isn't possible for the New Orleans class, just saying there are MANY more DESERVING Classes of starship.

In your opinion. The New Orleans is a really nice looking ship, where as the Yeager you mentioned is freaking hideous. See? Opinion.

New Orleans Canon Cred: 1 appearance (as a wrecked ship)
Yeager Canon Cred: 23 appearances on DS9
...
NOT opinion, FACT.
You calling the Yeager Hideous, is an opinion...

You can't really go by that, not the way ships are set up in game.

Luna class no on screen appearances period, in game.

Galaxy-X one appearance, in game.

Olympic one appearance, in game.

Ambassador two appearances, coming soon.

Prometheus class three appearances, in game.

Centaur class three appearances, in game.

I could go on, but you get the idea. Saying one ship deserves to be made over another is entirely subjective.

Thank you for proving my point, and taking my side of it!

Proving that screen time has nothing to do with whether or not a ship should be made? Ok. Sure.

Besides which, dstahl already said in an ask Cryptic that the New Orleans was being heavily looked in to for inclusion in game. So...this whole thing was kinda a moot discussion huh?

The only question is what will they make it in to?

In time, all canonical ships will be added to STO. Just right now the popular ones and the ones that have an easy fit with the scheme of things will be added right away.

Of course it's being considered. It will be easier to render than a Steamrunner which would require designing an original model that gets little to no customization like the Excelsiors
The New Orleans Class is a modified kitbash of the Galaxy Class using the saucer, nacelles, pylons and neck from the Galaxy.
It will be a much easier build to make than say... the Yeager which uses the Intrepid saucer/part of the hull and the Marquis Raider/Peregrine Fighter withe the nacelles moved to the end of the wings.

In the end the Devs are gonna do what is easiest... Which is a T5 Akira!... After the "New Defiant Variants" of course.
