I'd imagine that there'll be a mission in the upcoming FE series that will require us to use this ship? I can't imagine Starfleet would really want us chugging along in former enemy vessels just for the fun of it.
Now that's almost enough to get me to log in before the 15th. I'm not a fan of the Dominion (no dislike, just don't care), but I am overjoyed to see a new Escort that is not just a minor tweak of one we already have (MVAM and Dfiant I am looking at you). Escorts have been lagging significantly behind Cruisers and Science ships.
