I know I have brought up the idea of this before but especially now when there's a Super Cruiser, Super Sciece....where is the super escort?

I brought up in the past the Idea of a Genuine battleship, It was hampered down hard by people who said the Gal-X is a dreadnought. to me it is both a dreadnought in stature and in name, but it is namely a dreadnought due to its size and spinal lance...and its cloak.

Why not make us a newer generation Battleship, we got the odyssey, and soon the Vesta.

I know the adorian ship has been discussed and may be on the horizon, but it is not a Starfleet ship like the Odyssey and Vesta. both of those ships are newer generation.

I would love to see a DTN: Starfleet Battleship.

people in the past kept saying it is not starfleets way to design warships...and its not...but boy hell can Starfleet loophole the Sh** out of that statement and we all know it.

any thoughts on this?

BTW the main idea behind this is to get a battleship which is much larger than a normal escort but smaller than a cruiser...sort of like the destroyers we got in game now.

I second this idea, and I want at least one version to have a 360 turret that is worthy of being mounted on a battleship class of ship, and we'll call it the Missouri class.

That ship does exist in STO and is called Chimera.

You just need an LTS

If its larger than an Escort but smaller than a Cruiser it is not a Battleship but a destroyer in fact. The Chimera fills that function.

I was just thinking the same thing last night actually. We need an escort to finish off the set.

Why does STO need a 'super escort' when you have the nose-job saucer section with warp nacelles bolted on that is the Fleet Defiant?

And then there is the Jemmy Bug........

Don't remind me.

That thing is so unbelievably ugly.

No offense to it's designer intended..

There's a 3 variant Cruiser in the Odyssey, a three variant Sci ship coming in the Vesta, yes, we do need a 3 Variant Escort to finish it off.

I believe the Chimera class meets that criteria.

But I do agree that the Escorts could do with some more love from Cryptic. We've seen plenty of cruisers added, a few science ships but not many escorts. We need something to even it out.
