Like maybe as soon as Christmas? They are having a ship sale AND a Zem promo, usually that equals another ship launch is not far off. I know Mr Stahl said Jan - but a Christmas sale would be fun.
I think Mr Stahl said that the FE will be in Feb and pretty much said that is the Ambassador to be given away + the Andorian ship would be before that?
I wonder if it is the Andorian Broadsider Battlehip - how would the mechanics of that work - have 4 and 4 slots - but the 4 corner slots are coded differently so the they have specific rotated arcs + the arc of the weapon would fire to port and starboard?
They could make it a true Dreadnought and have a low turn rate but a massive hull like 50K+

Where did he "pretty much say" it would be the Ambassador?
I'm not saying it won't be, but there wasn't exactly a confirmation.
"In January we'll be releasing an Andorian Ship on the Federation side to be quickly followed by the STO 3 Year Anniversary Event. This special celebration will be released with a new one-off Feature Episode. If you were at the Star Trek convention in San Francisco this last weekend, Denise Crosby would have you believe that this episode is going to be all about Tasha Yar and Sela. We'll see... anything can happen."
It has been mentioned that the Andorian ship will be an escort.
One would think that that would be a given...
Andorians Are Not the Sciency Kinda Folks.

I'm hoping the Andorian ship will be more maneuverable, maybe even an Escort, we have enough space whales already.
So How about escort that is better than Fleet defiant? - like a mix of Jem Bug and Fleet defiant
With a Cloak - that could be it's special console - the Andorians have secretly picked up starfleets phased cloak tech and have been working on it in secret? The Romulans give the OK for the help they are getting and the KDF can't say anything because of the war.
