I am still not a fan, but i am liking the lay out a little more. i would have to see more shots and maybe a 360 view before i make my final call. In the end if i get it as a end reward doing a Featured Episode (highly doubt it) i will use it. I am not going to go out of my way and buy it on C-Store as of right now. after i see the 360 and the finial BOFF lay out who knows.
Wow, that does look rather nice. I'd love to see more of it.
It would also be really cool if it had its own special bridge and interior set. Kinda like the TOS bridge/interior c-store set. That would be sweet and a complete package. I wonder what they will use for the bridge in the feature episode? That is if we get to see it from the inside.
Either way, I may have to swap out my escort skills for cruiser skills when this comes out. Though, I bet it will be very popular. The whole of the Federation Fleet will now be Odyssey class.
I'm slightly disappointed Part 4 doesn't include anything such as what the ship's class can do, how it can separate and if it has an auxiliary craft along with some more meaty specifics.
Mind you - this isn't a protest against the ship. But, just a barebones revealed from a textured model on two angle (banner header, and the article) with a class name (which I dig) is a bit unsatisfying and anticlimatic. Aside from that, the text content is really nothing those whom have followed the Dev Tracker/Diaries don't already know about (and Part 3 was in majority kind of like that too).
If you're holding off until it gets officially revealed in the game, I hope you make it worth it.
