If CBS was allowed to use them, then then there wouldn't have been an issue with the Vesta and Rademaker's other ships, Probert's Ambassador, or Drexler's NX-Refit.

on another note , do we actually know for definate the cryptic has the right to the vesta or not ? last mention i saw on rademakers blog , they were still in talks , granted this was a while ago
Wish I had links, but comments a few weeks ago indicate they do got the rights to the Vesta and other Rademaker's ships. But that's all we know.

It's included in a 'ships of the line' video on Drex files, from March this year:

It's toward the end; warps in with a Borg cube chasing it.

Have to aggree with the guy who said its just a mix of the sovy and the galaxy, altough a good lookin one
So i think it would be better as a skin for them for those who have unlocked both the assault cruiser C store skin(or a t5 c store sovy refit if they ever put in such) and the t5 galaxy from c store and it could be used on both Assault Crusier and Galaxy class vessels.

That's a really nice ship. Sure it feels weird because it's like a photoshop of the galaxy and the sovereign classes (which, I guess, was its genesis), but it actually keeps those bits I like the most on each one of them. So I'd like to fly it in game.

Yech, what a fug-ugly design. I hesitate to criticise art because I'm a talentless chump in that regard, but "kitbash" designs like this and the Ambassador just strike me as lazy, in the sense that rather attempt to capture the -feel- of a previous vessel while updating it to a more modern aesthetic as we saw with the Excelsior, the Galaxy, the Sovvy, and the Odyssey, they just bodged together parts from the old ship and the new ship in a vaguely sensible way and called it a night.

Also, not every single "era" of design has to have a direct, gradual, step-by-step evolution, the whole point of the Sovereign was that it was a departure from the Galaxy-era designs, and the Galaxy that it was a departure from the TOS-Movies designs. Throwing in these "missing link" ships detracts from that impact, to my mind. I much prefer seeing previous ships brought into a new design era with a carefully considered refit design, like the Connie Refit or the Venture.

Shouldn't you play with the toys you just got before asking for a new one?

Allegiance class

Edit: I also would have preferred this being Ent-E than the sovvy class. I always hated the look of the sovvy, especially the saucer - Looks like a nickle that was left on a railroad track. Just to had to throw this in there.
LOVE this ship too. Thought the "hidden frontier" guys made it... perhaps not. A whole series about it can br found by watching Star Trek Odyssey.

I like the design, although I think the Galaxy class has enough variants. It may work as a alt skin for the ambassador class when we get it.

there are a few designs in the SOTL a really like to see in game.
