I personally hope, that they add some skins to the C-Store and not necessarily new ships. I would not mind some skin for Patrol Escort to replace Maelstrom.

And even more I would like some skin for the Lakota Excelsior (advanced Heavy Cruiser retrofit right?). Something like this: http://www.meshweaver.com/images/models_fpeb-schem.jpg

It would even make sense as Starfleet don't have a real combat-oriented cruiser (no, Sovereign are also exploration ships). Lakota has proven that Exclesior-sized ships can be great battleships and as they are smaller then Galaxy/Sovereigns you could get a decent firepower and survivability for not that many resources. With Feds on war with anyone around and in few neighborhood universes pure combat oriented cruiser will make a lot more sense then exploration/combat ships like Odyssey or new Sovereigns subclasses.

Plus such skin could explain the place (and abilities) of T5 Excelsior - those with current skin are the Excelsiors that were refited to Lakota standards, and those with such new skins are just new ships based on Lakota experiences.

That would sort of be s t r e t c h i n g it on the Excelsior. Certainly, that would have to be her "last refit", as she's pretty much out dated. She's a TOS movie ship that's been around a long, long, time. Give her one last refit...but that's the end of the line.

I always saw the Excelsior as the UH-1 Huey of the Star Trek universe. The original design fills that niche so perfectly that Starfleet really doesn't see a need to develop a replacement. The poster-child of "if it aint broke, don't fix it".

And as for the Ambassador-Class excitement, it's the only class to carry the name "Enterprise" that isn't in-game yet. The Enterprise-C was an Ambassador, and although she wasn't around for very long, she's kind of a BFD with the whole "reason Klingons and Federation made an alliance".

Also, the only Enterprise to have a female captain- my god, when did I become such a nerd...
Nyerti "Gadget" Val-Doran. Vice Admiral.
U.S.S Spellbound, Multi-Mission Strategic Explorer. NCC-92008.

This brings me to the question....WHERE the F*** is the Andorian ship??? WHERE the F*** is the Ambassador Class?


We have seen many ships that were promised "down the line" come into the game already. Sovreign/Regent and T5 Akira just to name a few. We have witnessed lockbox ships of a Cardassian, Jem Hadar, Ferengi, and Tholian species, yet.......after almost 3 years the Devs refuse to include the Ambassador and also the Andorian ship.

Will freakin' the Enterprise-J-K-L-M or N be in-game before we see either of these long promised ships???

I'm starting to see why so many people I've chatted with in-game are getting sick. I'm an optomist, so can someone please add some words of encouragement, or, provide their thoughts when the Devs might actually live up to their promise?

Hopefully some Klingon ships, we sure as hell don't need more fed ships.
