Well this will not happen. JamJamz said that in the future we will see one ship design for all classes (like the Odyssey). The specification differences between the types will be increased compared to the Oddy. There is a high probability that in the future new designs will be - to big part - cruisers.

In fairness... Star Trek WAS mainly cruisers.. But a "ship designer" who can't imagine starfleet escorts, is not ship designer at all...

Take a look at BC... there are tons of escort-like ships there... all made by people in their spare time:

http://bridgecommander.filefront.com...on_Class;37779

http://bridgecommander.filefront.com...r_class;117493

http://bridgecommander.filefront.com...nt_Class;89626

http://bridgecommander.filefront.com...er_Class;99907

http://bridgecommander.filefront.com/file/Chimera;31174

To just illustrate a few...

Shouldn be too hard for a pro to do something cool as well. (and yea... I know how hard modeling can be... I made a few for BC myself...)

Wow, I like that http://bridgecommander.filefront.com...nt_Class;89626 moreso that the defiant. And the Adder class. Good imagination. Although I think a monthly survey would be very good, and as an escort flyer as well, I'd like to see more escorts.

So far, only 118 people have taken part in the questionnaire... I'm still shocked that that Romulan and Federation are the most popular factions...

I am not... Dispite not really being a major faction in Trek, the Klingons are not surrounded my mystery... The Romulans are.

Done. Great survey! Just pray that the devs listen, because if you are going on what they have done in they past, they will ignore it on purpose.

It was hard to choose between Federation and Romulan...

I liked the idea of "mini-factions" and I think there's some potential there.

I think I was the 100th person to take it.. do I get a prize? (The results are now showing 100 in most categories).

Edit: maybe I should read previous posts. But if 118 have taken it, why is 100 the highest total?

Ain't the Akira & the Andorian Vessel supposed to be Escorts?

Besides that: In Star Trek size usually does matter if about the same tech level. IIRC the official ST definition of "Escort" doen't even mean warship. It was a choosen classification for the Defiant to cover up the fact that it was a warship. Explained by Sisko somewhere in the DS9 episode with the first Defiant appearance.

Nothing to be shocked about with those numbers. What most people fail to realize is the fact that the reason that the kdf faction doesnt have high numbers isnt because of a lack of content, its because of a lack of interest, ive stated it a few times now and no one still believes me that klingons are just not that damn appealing of a faction, while romulans are.
Have the klingons had more screen time sure...we can thank that pathetic excuse for a tactical officer worf for that one.
Who showed up first as the big baddies in trek...Romulans
Who gave cloaking tech to the klingons.....Romulans
Who has way sleeker designed ships.....Romulans
Who has illegal ale.....Romulans....

I can keep going but its pointless...people still whine that they want a 1-22 level setup for the kdf...meanwhile we won the poll 2 years ago to be the next faction placed ingame and yet still continue to wait while we listen to KDF whining about content or not having this or that...

Im not against the kdf at all, and think whats occured for the past 2 years is unexcusible for a professional development team but in my eyes,
STO is the Titanic and the KDF is the damn iceberg...2 years we been sinking instead of just tossing the romulans in when we should have...pvp alone would have been more robust...

I have to pay to get results past 100 votes. But I have 132 people who took the survey. Once I get the 1,000 votes I want, i'll pay for the results.
