Speculate here.

I'm hoping the Korrath is a one, as I would love to see a new KDF ship added.

A lot of people are assuming it's the Wells and Korath. Personally, I'm not sure Cryptic would be giving the 1,000 day Vets a Science Ship as their Vet Reward. I'd love to have those ships, though; but I like Science Vessels, whereas I think most people would prefer an Escort or Cruiser type.

There is always the possibility of retroactive veteran rewards. So it is possible that we could go a year without veteran rewards after the 1000 day vet reward and they could add the 1100, 1200, and 1300 day vet reward in October 2013. Unless the devs say that this is the last veteran reward ever, then there will always be the possibility for more. And even then, new management voids all promises.

Because they are Time Ships, doesn't mean they are Science Ships. They very well could be highly versitile ships with Universal slots. Which would be what Feds wanted for a long time, a Federation BoP.


Though still odd we can't have old ships or have the Enterprise-J in the game, but it's okay to have 29th Century ships flying around 400 years in the past.

Actually, according to Dan Stahl (get out your salt shaker), the J got nixed because its literally the size of ESD.

Might be a rarity issue if they give us ships that looks like it belongs in the 29th Century. The amount of people that will reach 1000 days or even reach 1000 days will be the total amount of lifetime subscribers minus lifers that will never play this game again. I doubt that even 1% of the players in this game will ever reach the 1000 day veteran reward. I have just over a month to go for whatever this ship would be.

Of course, it might be possible that these ships are based on designs that the Department of Temporal Investigations and their KDF counterpart took on the Wells and Korath ships. So there will be some minor improvements that these ships have, but nowhere near what a ship 400 years in the future would have compared to present day starships.

Of course, it is more likely that these are npc models for a future time travel mission or a mission that has been scrapped and we will never see it. I have no idea what the 1000 day veteran reward ship will look like, but since it says starship variant, then chances are that it will be a retrofit.
