# 1 New Flagship/Enterprise Class
12-14-2011, 02:46 AM
Morning all,

Just a quicky:

When is the new - much trumpeted Enterprise Class/Flagship coming in game?

Also - do we know how much it's going to take/cost to get one.

Inquiring minds and all that

Thanks

Probably not until the next FE is finally released. So wait about...oh 4 months? Yeah sometime in march.

Should be used to it by now....

according to D'Angelo, who posted yesterday, they're working on it now and plan to get it out in January, the next FE... they're probably aiming for the F2P date

Then the REAL fun begins !

Just look at how the game has changed recently:

1. The slow process to obtain the new STF space and ground sets. You have to run them about 240 times to get em both. And I'm just talkin about the a 3 piece space and ground set.
AND the absolute absurdly LOW drop rate of the Borg Tech drops that might speed the process up just a tad.

2. The grind for dilithium to get the now standard old purple bling along with statements from Cryptic that they want to slow things down.......

3. Then there is the latest bug in a box with the one in 500 chance.

Based upon the a fore mentioned, I'm able to make this extrapolation:

This is going to be the ULTIMATE in highly sought after high end ships. It will be highly coveted, therefore a wonderful incentive to get you to put in a huge amount of time effort and,......... wait for it ........
DILITHIUM ! aka C points, aka AGAIN real world money....
The hype's been set. The interest's been engaged, the release's has been pushed back.

Hungry for the ship yet? GOOD !
This carrot's going to be at the end of a verrrrrrrry LOOOOOOONG stick.
We're gonna have to sweat to get this puppy !

Here's my prediction:
. You will have to GRIND an INSANE, (just used for emphasis), amount of whatever mission/s to get it. The mission/s will be time a gated event/s, similiar to the Borg ground invasion of the Deferi.
One to three times a week maybe TOPS.

. 200 or MORE runs to get the new encrypted data doohickies, (one per run), with ULTRA MEGA rare tech drops as enticement. Maybe one in 500 chance anyone actually gets em.
There may be special weekends to increase the drop rates.

. You will have to craft it, (and who says crafting is dead ?!) using about 200 said encrypted data doohickies, PLUS a HUGE dilithium contribution ALONG WITH a significant data sample contribution, ( yet even more grinding).

. This new ship class will be kept purposefully rare to give it more prestige therefore justify the huge amount
of effort and time to obtain it. Hey, it's the new Enterprise after all !
Otherwise, the sol system will instantly be FULL of nothing but Odyssey class starships and C Store sales of the latest whatever flavor of the month class....... might suffer as players might be too full of win to purchase the latest "other" new ship class.

NOW, you might believe this is a complaint post..... BUT I've tricked you !

I actually BELIEVE that you should have to labor to get this ship.
How hard, or how long one should to, Now THAT has me a tad.......hesitant.

Any bets on the accuracy my theory ? (JOKING, ....there will be no gambling on the forums, save it for the C store) :p
Just kidding .......

See Cryptic ! who knows you baby ?

Anyone else have a confirmation on the side weapons the Odyssey is supposed to have? Does is use cannons? Torpedoes? Beams?

Thanks,
