Maybe, just maybe, it's the new lockbox ship, launching with S7?

Please?
Even though I despise the lockbox system, please?

Otherwise, I agree, it'd make every other Science ship (except maybe the Wells), thoroughly redundant.

I think we're missing a part of the picture.

There are 3 consoles. Which means likely there are 3 variants of Vesta.

I'm guessing then that 1 variant has SStargetting and more shield, one has a hangar, and the last has higher turn rate and can mount DHCs.

Because hanger = people buying fighters/runabouts etc to 'live' in it.

Well of course Cryptic can go defy my assumptions of logic by putting all three consoles on the same ship.

Ah, so it probably will be some Odyssey like pack. Oh well, danoobes everywhere.

It will have all 3 on 1 ship and won't be a 3 pack.

It's virtually a given that they will charge between 3000 to 3500 zen given the extra costs in getting the ship - payments to the designer, legal issues etc, etc and given its a brand new ship with these extra costs they can easily charge 3000 min

given that a 3 pack would be around 7000 zen or $70+

You need to remember the Oddy 3 -pack was 5000 C-POINTS when it was released or more than 6000 zen

I highly doubt they will put out a ship that you have to pay $70 1 time or over $90 over time to get all 3

especially at this time of year just before christmas - it would be a hard sell

I will have 3000 zen already and my next stipend of 500 will bring me to 3500 - which should be the top end of the price range.

Finally, a FED equivalent of a Kar'Fi (pressumably). Dream come true - day one purchase for me.

For those concerned about Vesta having "fighters" - its book version does have a large flight deck and several shuttles and runabouts at its disposal, so it's not really canon bending or anything.

Can't wait for a Dev Blog with stats and such. Now I hope we'll get a Fleet Kar'Fi for the KDF to keep things "balanced" (*cough*).

I reckon it will be 3 versions like the Ody....

Tac: Can mount dual cannons and has a higher turnrate with tactical focus.
Sci: Has the special deflector/console and can use sensor analysis with science focus.
Eng: Can equip fighters and is Engineer focused with console/boff slots.
