This is great news, but let's be straight. The new ships will be the botany bay, and the nx 01 sister ship we see when Tpol is taking care of old archer.
The Somraw, K'tinga, D'Kyr, D7, Kumari, and T'Varo are all older than the Constitution Refit and yet they are tier 5. The rule needs to change.

Great. For a game set about 200 years after TOS, we sure do see more of jumping backwards instead of innovating forward.

The Kelvin is what was brought to mind and the Kelvin Uniforms. Possibly do we finally get an in game event to promote the new Trek film.

Another TOS design I would love to see would be the Archer-class scout, the USS Sagittarius from Star Trek Vanguard series of books. For the ENT era, I am hoping for the Intrepid, one of the ships sent to escort the Enterprise to Earth after being hunted by the Klingons and it was commanded by Malcolm Reed in an AU Timeline.

Barring a new deal being made, anything assets wise (aside from the Hobus thing we have for story) from the new movies are a nono. Paramount has the movies, and Cryptic only has a deal with CBS.

Except for the Narada and Hobus and Red Matter. There is more that I am missing, so there must've been an exception in place. Honestly, what would be a better place to promote the newest incarnation of Trek than an online Trek game.

Anyways, scratch the Kelvin. I vote for the Archer-class and the Intrepid for the Feds. With the KDF, ENT's BOP and D-5 class (the Bortas).

those are the only events in the JJ movie that took place in the prime timeline, thus the only ones that were 'canon' to the game.

if jj abrams were to have his ships show up in star trek online the price would have to be 50$ per ship.

25$ for crytpic
15$ for paramont
10$ for jj
per ship class

Here is where I read it on the report:

Q: (tpai99) Will there be a Fleet version of the Vesta? What about the new ships that you guys design yourself? Will there be more possibilities to create your own ship?

Dstahl: We haven?t made a final decision on the Fleet Vesta, but it is one of the ships we are considering for a Fleet refit. We do have several new ship designs in the works, along with some older designs from both the TOS and Enterprise era. One of our long term goals is to allow Fleets the ability to customize and/or create their own ships, but we want to make more customization parts for existing ships before we implement that.

I'm gonna nip my imagination on this in the bud, personally, and assume he's talking about D7s as the Klingon 3rd anniversary counterpart to the Ambassador and the Andorian destroyer from Enterprise. I don't think he's talking FEDERATION TOS ships.

I would love to see the original bop from tos not the crap lookin thing from enterprise which cryptic have put in even tho its really old even older than the tos ones.

Also id love to see a first federation ship in the game as a random event of sorts and see how barok or whatever his name was is doing.
