Now that my eye-catching but substance-light thread title has roped you in, here is my list of "where we are with mirror ships" because I am bored and refreshing google news isn't turning up anything interesting.
Mirror Ships: The Rundown
We have gotten Mirror ships with the past few lockboxes - mostly due to their connection with the Tholian happenings.
The ships we have gotten have all been mirror version of RA free/dilithium ships, they have been fairly common and a welcomed, easy to acquire booby prize.
We have not gotten any C-store ships in mirror form, although we did get the Future/MU Future ships in the Temporal lockbox. I do not think we will ever see C-store ships in mirror form in lockboxes - we may see them one day in the C-store but I think that it's not very likely.
MU Assault Cruiser
MU Star Cruiser
MU Deep Space Science Vessel
MU Reconnaisance Vessel
MU Advanced Escort
MU Patrol Escort
MU Qin Raptor
By my estimation, that means Feds have now run out of RA ships to create mirror versions of - and KDF has only two ships left.
The Negh'var (Where are you?) & the BoP (lol).
This is as far as I had gotten with regards to an actual topic for a thread. Maybe it will produce something of interest as I head back to google news.
How about we get some original ship designs into this washizzle. This game is far from canon anyway.
Continue the Armitage and Thunderchild line of thought, and stop trying to incorporate the most obtuse designs left to scrounge from past shows (practically the only major canon ship left to do is the Norway class, and CBS already said that was impossible due to the original CG being corrupted and they wouldn't allow a scratchbuild) and movies, we're all past the point of caring about canon ships - simply because almost all of them are in by now, and NOBODY cares about these dumb mirror universe salvages crapping up the joint.
And I bet if you asked any Trek fan prior to this game's launch, none of them were expecting - or wanted - to pilot any Jem'Hadar ships as a federation character!
