All the other destroyers act like Escorts, why would this one be different? Destroyers tend to have a turn rate off around 15, I see no reason why this one would be much different.

Not all turn rates with the same multiplier work the same way-observe the Raptor pivot, and they're allegedly "escorts". A cruiser with a fast turn? still turns like a cruiser.

Ergo, "Another thin-skinned cruiser with two device slots". Given the layout in the art as linked, I suspect it's going to be basically a slower turning Raptor, something in between a Vor'cha and a Qin.

I would take your negative views out of this thread since you have NO clue what its going to do, because we dont want them here. This is a discussion about it, not a bashing before it comes out, which from how your acting i can tell its already a turd in your mind.

Since when do Destroyer class ships turn like cruisers? Why are you calling Destroyer class ships thin skinned crusiers? I am not aware of any Destroyer's that turn like crusiers.

Wow. That ship looks like they took a modified Bortas body and slapped a different head and nacelles on it.

Actually its a submission from the next enterprise contest, it was like 2nd or 3rd place, so was before the bortas was even shown, so technically the bortas ripped from it

Um... what? Fairly sure voporak was talking about the KDF ship, which I doubt placed in the Enterprise design contest...

Oh, and PLEASE give us a different head on that thing!

Not a fan of rounded pre-k toy looking KDF bridgesections. A pointy, bearded, Briok raptor look might be nice... or a mean looking Haj head?

This one is a bit too old-school B'rel or QulDun derived, and clearly the Empire had designed pointier, meaner, more dangerous looking heads since then.

As a request, can one of the vets who gets this thing put up a vid on youtube or something to show it off? I'd love to see what this thing could do. Thanks.

This ship is supposed to be able to transform from SV to escort to cruiser on the Fed side...

...does that mean your's have BoP, battlecruiser, and carrier modes?
