Chimera, CHIMERA class. Not Magellanic. They've made that clear.

And given that it has at least three 'modes', including a high-speed sector space one, it should beat out the Excelsi in a couple of ways.

They are destroyers... not cruiser/escort/sci...

Do we really know it's high-speed? The Intrepid has a "Sector Space mode" where the nacelles swing up and it's... absolutely average there.

The Intrepid is that way because that is they way it was in the show, nothing more. If I were to venture a guess, the different modes are probably dependent on the role you wish to play it: Tac, Eng, or Sci.

There is said to be a Sector Space mode (though I believe that was mentioned for the KDF ship, it's likely the case for both), which wouldn't follow the careers... since it's a Sector Space Mode, and that's a non-combat area.

While I don't doubt that there will be some benefit to it in Sector Space over standard ships... they could just be aiming for a cool animation in that particular case like the Intrepid or BoP have. Cryptic have done stranger things. Thus I ask if we actually know it's high-speed, and not just aesthetic.

Where did they say these things? I haven't seen any naming of this class (other than what's printed on the original artwork) or its features in any Twitter feeds or forum posts or podcasts. Can you point me in the right direction?

Noting the KDF ship's Sector Space Mode

As a "sub guy" I appreciate the consideration.
If your post is anything like, "I have a sandwich so you can't be starving" it's time to rethink posting.

Still trying to figure out how this thing is actually going to be statted. I mean, given it's sheer rarity, it automatically gets promoted into the 'Hero Ship' slot.

10 consoles is a given, likely with 3/3/4.

Cmdr Tac/Universal, the rest... hmmm, up for debate.

One pertinent question is if the 'modes' will effect ship handling or not, and more importantly, how maneuverable and cannon-worthy is she to start with?

Also, I really don't see the problem people have with the klink ship. I mean, look at it. It has clear and present suggestions that all of the klingon faction races have banded together to make that thing. Hints from the orion flight deck cruisers, some from the gorn, some slight signs from the nausicans, all wrapped up into the base iconic klingon frame. It could use tweaking, yes, but it's well... the biggest problem I can find with it is that it's 'adorable'. Then again, so's a cat. And they're viscous little furry *******s.
