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.

Which is where they're likely to spring some KDF ship at the same time they do the Ambassador next year...

...but there's what - two Fed ships before that?

Would rather have KDF content instead of a c store ship.

Nothing comes close to kar'fi and I find it extremely difficult to fly any other KDF ship!

I do hope this is fed kar'fi equivalent...but it would need two hangers, 4/3 fore aft weps, etc!

I don't see myself buying any more three ship packs after the massive pile of sheet that is known as odyssey!

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!

He also did not speak of it in any capacity other than visual work save for the comment that we will know more soon.

Just playing devils advocate here. I'm relatively certain we will see it launch fighters in some capacity.

True he did not say yes, however, many times when someone has posted that a "Ship Will have This" thread - the dev's have come on the tread and said "no it won't"

Leaving it as a no-comment: Is almost as good as a confirmation until the official news is announced.
