In the recent Engineering Report, it was mentioned that a new variant for the Galaxy is in development:

Since the variants for the Nebula class are taken directly from the T5 Galaxy (Nebula = Galaxy, Magellan = Celestial), my two questions are this:

- Will the Nebula get another variant that is a copy of the new Galaxy variant?

- Will the Galaxy X get this new variant too, seeing it very desparately needs customization options?


I imagine the development time for new variants for the Nebula and Galaxy X to be much less if they're based on a pre-existing costume, and if that's the case, why not give us a new variant as well.

Personally, I don't think the Galaxy-X will get a new skin. Also I don't think it needs it. We don't need "Skins" we need actual ships.

Well, I think otherwise (less ships, more skins). But that's not the point of this thread. A new Galaxy skin is coming, that much was stated. And while they're at it, why not create a new Nebula and/or Galaxy X skin from it.

I don't think a new skin is comming for Galaxy-X...you would have to bought a skin for expensive ship you bought already

If I am to guess, I think we are talking Retrofit ships here. Vessels with additional abilities, available at the top ranks. I am also guessing that the occasionally whispered desire to expand the variety of consoles which provide powers (like with the Advanced Escort Multi-Vector Assault Mode console) factors in to this.

I wouldn't mind them adding the original secondary hull to the Nebula-class first to be honest.

I suggested something similar last week, but a new ship based on the new Enterprise. Timing is good, especially since a book series proposed a new version of the Miranda/Nebula and someone modeled it up on the Drex Files.

Here is what I came up with for a look:

That's a nice idea, though I think it's more suited to be a new ship entirely instead of a costume for the Nebula?

That and the second picture looks too Miranda-esque to me :p But the idea is interesting.

Still, in the meantime, I'd much rather see the upcoming costume for the Galaxy be converted to an appropriate costume for the Nebula since they're so similar and share costumes already.

I'm hoping it's just new ship types for T4 rather then a new skin for Galaxy, Defiant, and Intrepid. T2 and T4 really need some new ship design choices.

I'll play devil's advocate, but what exactly at all is the purpose of having new lower tier ships? You outlevel them so fast that there's simply no point in having them around. If you could have them as T5 retrofits however then the picture changes.
