It only shows up to fight Tholians. Anything else, and you'll get the appropriate flagship for your faction. You apparently get a Korath class timeship if you're KDF.
Which makes sense, if the Tholians are messing with time and space portals. Why wouldn't 29th century Starfleet be taking an interest?
Formerly GT-01. Runnin' a small lite-RP casual fleet called "The Voyagers"! Message me in-game at either Salen@GT01 or Xavok@GT01 if yer interested.

if this is intended then they should rescale the effectiveness UP and the appearances DOWN

the Wells pops up everywhere continuously and does very little to help.

last Vault ensnared i played had 3 Wells class NPCs around in the last battle... thats just silly.

Yeah, the Wells mainly show up during my STF. It almost always does, especially when doing the Fleet Action of the Vault, or the one that you have to rescue Rommie ships.

Correction: Not in STF but in FA like the Vault

Are you guys sure it's not a player in a Wells, using the Mobius console?

Negative, the last few times I did play in the Vault FA were with players either using carriers, escorts, or large cruisers. The escorts were your standard type, no Lockbox versions.

Then there was the moments where I was alone engaging Tholians.

I like seeing them show up. They kinda needed to do something with the Ent-F anyway. Haven't heard much from the flagship since the Dominion FE.

Maybe the Tholians knew the future about you and it was known by 29th century Starfleet. They support you because you were important for the future

I noticed the same thing, but only in the Beta Lankal System.

Usually, a Wells class ships appears at the second relic, but isn't targetteable. He attacks Tholian ships, then disappears (he simply fades away, no warp / hologram effect).
Next on the third relic, the ship reappears, but is targetteable. And he keeps helping me huntil I warp out.
I checked closely, and there is no Tyken's Rift (well I don't know if it's one, but it has the same FX) appearing when he pops out, like when Tholian ships summon Mirror Ships (I also noticed they usually summon reinforcements AFTER they die).

On one occasion, I had an Obex type Iconian ship coming from the planet when I finished beaming up the last relic, scanning some anomaly, then warping out when I got closer to him. Had this happen once in twenty times in this system. I'll try to make some screenshots next time (or use the demorecord).

I haven't seen yet both Wells class and Obex ships in other patrol systems in Tau Dewa (besides Enterprise-F in the skirmish missions).

I knew about the Enterprsie before it turned up, but was surprised when fighting Tholians in one of the systems in the New Romulas sector for the patrol daily, something started shooting from off screen. Then turns out a Wells class was flying around shooting at Tholians, and it kept dissapearing and reappearing a short distance away. I thought it was having issues with it's time drive. I'm very happy it did, as Tholians always prove troublesome for my ship on it's own.

A Romulan Strike Team, Missing Farmers and an ancient base on a Klingon Border world. But what connects them? Find out in my First Foundary mission: 'The Jeroan Farmer Escapade'
