Since when has trek 'verse reality ever meant a damn when it came to STO ship balance?

First, I must let out a little giggle, the speculation makes me smile!

While the Odyssey & Chimera were indeeed DTNE ships, the Bellephron was and inspired conglomeration of several, with it's own twist, the Regent itself was not based on any DTNE designs, if anything, it was based on ships currently in the game, and early concepts for the Sovereign, all in all, it's its own design, an evolution & 2409ification of the Sovereign. Not do discredit the DTNE entries, there is, without a doubt, still a pile of nice looking ships!

Ambassador and most probably K'Vort. Both Tier 5 cruisers with 9 console slots, with the latter being a battlecruiser with cloak at the cost of some HP.

Then, several weeks later, C-Store refit variants of both these ships, with upgraded stats and perhaps new looks to justify the price.

And I do honestly hope it's going to be K'Vort for the KDF, as somehow I find the prospect of flying an oversized Bird of Prey inviting.

Ok, so let's daydream a bit...

They give us a free Ambassador that has the same layout as the Galaxy has today as a Tier-4 ship, THEN...

They bring the Galaxy (Tier-4) up to what it SHOULD BE and have 3 tactical console slots (same as Excelsior Refit which is 2 generations older than the Galaxy) , the Galaxy-X (Tier-5) then be given 4 tactical console slots to truly be a Dreadnought. Then... The Fleet Galaxy/X has 5 tactical slots.

Wouldn't this help balance the Galaxy line to what it should be AND bring in the Ambassador as a Tier-4 ship to about where it should be. As far as gameplay, this would make the Ambassador a moderate ship for casual gameplay and the Galaxy more useful for more serious play.

I'm sure people would have other ideas for BOff slots and other slots, but I see current layout of tactical slots as a big nerf to these ships.

Ambassador, yes, no to the K'Vort. The K'Vort is so unoriginal and I would feel cheated. Enterprise has the D-5 Class or their version of the BOP.

Daydreaming, I would love to see the Qang-class from the IKS Gorkon novels.

Lemme repost this post again "Yet it is not that HARD to LOCK OUT the constitution skin for a Tier 5 version of the Lt. Commander ship Cruiser/Cruiser Refit!" I want a Tier 5 Cruiser/Cruiser Refit, not a Tier 5 Connie . Connie isn't the only one, there is the Exeter, Excalibur, and Vesper for that ship.

The K'vort was an accident of bad special effects direction they they had to retro in a design story to cover the mistake. Let the ship die in peace.

The D-5 would be AWESOME !!!

Personally, my favorite "speculations":

1.) "The Galor is getting a make over? I smell a ship coming!"

2.) "The D'kora is getting a make over? I smell a ship coming!"

3.) "Tholians is Season 6? They aren't gonna make all that for free. I smell a ship coming!"

4.) "Breens ships are getting a make over? i smell a ship coming!"

Dev responses to above:
1.) "The wild speculation in this thread makes me smile/laugh!"

All ships released...

Yeah it's not very....secretive when we catch winds of a makeover for one of the ships, it alway have led to release of a player version of that ship.

What makes me laugh is how much the devs think we are dumb.
