yeah , just doesnt sit well with me though , if this is indeed a pack ship , and we dont know that for definite yet , then there really needs to be a KDF released at the same time
guess we'll find out
There will be no KDF ship until 2013 at the earliest - they have said that many times. There is Zero chance of any KDF ship coming out same time as Vesta - it would have been telegraphed way in advance to calm down some KDF players if that were the case.
Would rather have KDF content instead of a c store ship.
I would rather have some proper KDF Fleet ship variants, instead of all those useless lower tier refits. Fleet Kar'Fi is on top of my "do want" list in that regard. No idea why Cryptic's ignoring the issue - no new modeling work required whatsoever, just re-using old ships by giving them better stats and a console slot. It's not even an issue of integrated abilities, as most of the ships don't even have any aside from Guramba and B'Rel.

I hope so as well, but to be honest I wouldn't want it to have 2 hangar slots. Instead, a bit higher turn-rate or more hull would be nice. The rest can remain the same for my taste - Cmdr. Sci and lt.cmdr. tac + dual cannons is all I need in this case.
I hope the dev blog with stats is gonna come out today... The curiosity is killing me. ;>
Also, I wonder if the ship will come with its unique bridge/interior... But I doubt it.
captJamJamz made a post in my "Vesta Gets a Hanger bay" thread in the Fed fleetyards today:

Couple the wonky scales on parts, it's still shot with a hand-held, a nice one, mind you, but still not perfect.
You'll see more soon.
he was refering to an old photo - but what is of most interest is that he did not refute the title of the thread - which was that the vesta will have a hanger bay!
