Good news, its not in the patch notes but the Type 6 Hull is back!
Thanks for the heads up Intrinsical! I awoke, quite literally, at the crack of dawn, this morning and read this good news. I hadn't logged into STO since this past weekend. Yet, this news prompted me to log back in, right away.
And lo and behold, I haven't been able to log in since about 5:30AM! So, now I haven't got any STO at all. Hopefully that Type 6 hull will be waiting for me, when and if I'm able to get back in-game.
