I see Warp Nacelles in the second photo.

I understand the criticisms but I have to say this is one of the most beautiful scifi ships I've seen.

That's a warp ring dude, not traditional linear starfleet warp nacelles.

I am happy for Cryptic to add all the canon ships even if they are relics, but I also want to see some fresh designs, why not a class of ship with an arched nacelle? Or more Defiant style ships with the nacelles built in? Or large Cruisers/science vessels with built-in nacelles?
Well that ultimately is up to CBS, now is it?

Noob Question:

Why does CBS get so involved with STO's ship design ideas, etc... any of the previous games, particularly Starfleet Academy, Legacy, etc... seem to have a more unique selection of ships. Particularly where the first game is concerned and including subsequent sequels allowed players to play a variety of different species with their own story arch, ship choices, etc...

Don't get me wrong, I love STO but CBS keeps popping up as being a major party pooper.

You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard ya hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward." - Rocky Balboa (2006)

Because CBS owns Star Trek and has certain visions when it comes to their property.

if you want to put a phaser lance on it, then sure. Otherwise, what's the point. No v neck for slipstream, no slot for the Aquarius which was specifically designed to give added firepower to the Odyssey, does not look like the saucer separates from the stardrive. what would be the point of this design?

Looks like Nacelles at the bottom end of the ring to me.

Jupiter SUCKS! Why do you think they replaced it ingame with the Galaxy Refit. Maneuverability is next to nothing, poor weapons layout, speed is non existent, hull integrity is terrible. A Jupiter is essentially a big, lumbering target.
