The ugliest ship of STO? I think it's that one that keeps making me imagine a giant Q with a golf club chasing after it...

I think the ugliest ship(s) are the Miranda, Galaxy, Galaxy-X, Constitution, and Oberth.


Star Trek's ship designs didn't start to look good until they started streamlining the ships by removing the obnoxious neck that separated the hull and saucer. Even though the Oberth avoided having a neck, it's huge bulb for a saucer was just ugly.

Basically, the only ones that look good are all the escorts, the Intrepid, the Recon Science Vessel, the Assault Cruiser, Star Cruiser, the Atrox Carrier, whatever the Stargazer class cruiser is called because I don't want to look it up right now, and the Excalibur (The only exception I make to the necked cruisers.)


I only listed the Stargazer because thanks to it's customization options, I can make it look like a four-nacelled escort without the nacelles themselves sticking out too far from the rest of the ship.

The old "Jupiter Class Dreadnaught".

Looks like someone took and old school metal lunchpail and tacked warp nacelles on the thing.

For me it's the Sovereign and it's variants. Not so much an STO phenomenon, I had a bit of a dislike towards it ever since First Contact.

The Kar'fi and the Tholian ships (shuttle as well as weaver and recluse) come in second and third.

Well, that's hard. Almost all FED escorts are ugly (except the Prometheus, perhaps with some of its variants), the heavy cruisers are ugly as well. The same goes for the Olympic class and its variants and the Oberth. Oh, forgot about the Deep space science vessels.
And there are many more single skins of otherwise nice ships.

But since I am to choose the ugliest, I'll go with the "escort", particularly the Ushaan skin.

On KDF side, there are many ships that I would call "interesting" instead of ugly, like the Kar'fi. So if I skip a couple single skins (Tor'kaht, among others), there remain the Guramba, the Marauder, the B'rel and the K't'inga... hmm, interesting, looks like I like KDF ships better. Anyway, the ugliest is hands down the Marauder flight deck cruiser.

Single ship class? Galliant-class (goofy forearm protrusions) or Centaur-class (Looks like it's doing splits).

Ship type? Deep Space Science vessels (whats with hull poking down all by itself?) I guess you can toss the Oberth in here too.


And I've always thought Ferengi ships were fugly.
