It's just a matter of time before the next lockboxes drop. So which of the Escorts would you like to see?

Considering the trend, pretty sure it would be the Advanced Escort and Patrol Escort with mirrored console and bridge slots.

The Klingon side, however, is a bit more interesting. Really, the only options I see would be a mirror BoP(with universal bridge slots, what's the point?), Carrier(might be interesting), or Negh'Var(perhaps more science-leaning?).

The Neghvar is the only thing I could really see being significantly different. I mean I don't know how much they could change a Voquv to make it really different...unless they give it a Atrox like boff layout which would be kind of boring.

I sure don't see them going for next to freebie escort mirror ships. Mainly because it's been left out thus far. If anything we'll see the first very rare mirror ship being escort, I think. The most obvious thing would be the defiant but goodluck to that ever happening. They won't give us a even more heavily geared defiant(anything else would be dumb, for it to be a weaker tac ship)without a major fight so if we got it, it'd be nearly as rare as a grand prize ship, assuming it's not the grand prize ship itself of like a doff pack or whatever.

The mirror defiant had no cloaking device. Mirror Klingons didn't have cloaking tech either...

It's only been left out thus far because they've only had two sets of them, there's nothing to suggest it's because they're never getting made.

The original didn't, but in the STO timeline, the Terran Empire does have cloaking tech (see: ISS Molly).

The mirror defiant is the same as the prime universe defiant.

Smiley O'brien stole the defiant plans from the prime universe and they began constructing a prime universe defiant in the mirror universe, so I would doubt it would have different boff layouts and such. Then again they could probably still put in in there.

As for the other escorts, it's fair game i think

Dont know if the point is valid, X amount of years have past and who knows where this new terran empire has been/conquered same with the klingon (eviler empire?),

Something i dont get is, the DS9 events made me think it would have turned the terrans into a stronger yet a tad more just empire, somehow they are back to being bloodthirsty empire minded, and SOMEHOW have equal if not stronger ships than the prime federation??

And another thing i never understood about the mirror U, is with SO MANY murders in the mirror, how on earth could people be about to mirror the people alive in the prime universe, i mean the DS9 mirrors saw all the ds9 ferengi killed off, so many ways a timeline would have diverged from the prime/mirror... but meh mirror episodes where just there for the cast to play themselves completely different :p

Well if we see a rare mirror vessel I for one would love to see a mirror gal-x, maybe give it a fourth tac console...a lt cmdr tac...might make a gal-x thats worth something compared to the one we have.

For the KDF side maybe make the larger negh'var that regent worf commanded and give it something like well maybe a disruptor version of the lance.

Maybe give each standard cloak without a console...or just not give them cloak I suppose. Either way they are completely even and no complaining like with the vet ships.

ya the mirror advanced escort will be fun, can MVAM with an ens eng.

for kdf im not sure, i cant think of anything other then a negvar with a ENS sci, or maybe a carrier with a LTC eng instead of an LTC tac.
