If they didn't slap a hangar on this thing it wouldn't be significantly different than existing escorts, as a console alone doesn't really mean much. But I suppose that's what refits/retrofits are for, so nevermind I guess?


In any case I want to see this on the KDF side, too. Regardless of what I may or may not think about the ship's layout it seems kind of ****** that our one-hangar option is a star cruiser that has no hopes of matching this DPS and maneuverability. (though I definitely like healing and tanking in it, so I'm not saying it's a boring ship or anything)


Hell you could even make this escort support with Extend Shields and the shield healing drones or whatever. Or dump EWP on folks as you tear them apart. Sheesh, I kind of wish I hadn't spent my dilithium on costumes...

I'm guessing the federation will get the B'rel retrofit before we get an escort carrier.

Yeah... sort of... earthy, peaty aroma. With a touch of lilac.

My fed will be sticking with the fleet escort most likely and the boff layout is off putting to me. I'll just wait for that Andorian Escort they were talkin about and hope that one has a boff layout I can like.

As for bops, hell ya, the lower tier ones are amazing to look at, the LG skins are just plain and outdated by comparison. At least give us a cstore skin guys!

I would love a Ferasan sci ship that maneuvers like an intrepid. There aren't enough decent sci KDF ships.

Sorry boss we've heard that line from both Jack Emmert and Daniel Stahl.

What you have to do is convince your bosses and the higher ups that it's worth Cryptic's time to make more for the KDF. I'm sure they have no problem when it comes to Feds because they know the revenue will be there just from size of the faction. That's why they got Carriers and T5 Akira... they know those will be sure sales to a large # of people.

Personally, I'd love to see a Multi-Vector Assault Raptor for the KDF. I'm happy with the Kar'fi but I have to say a Ferasan Tactical Carrier to counter the T5 Akira sounds awesome.

... I feel my ability to argue any point KDF-side is a little diminished due to my favourite Fed ship getting included as a T-5 refit (and not at all disappointing, all things considered... at first glance maybe even too powerful).

Still, as shiny a ship as it is, what new content would I fly that thing in that would make the purchase worthwhile? If it's just PvP, then ... well, I have a slew of KDF ships already to choose from.

Lockboxes and C-Store shinies with no new missions or STFs to use them on is like Mel Brooks handing out those ball paddles in Blazing Saddles: "Give these out to the boys in lieu of pay."

a BoP? phase cloaked sci vessel? t6 hero cruiser?

the suspense is killing me!
