I must have missed the episodes where Starfleet personnel could wear uniforms from the Mirror Universe and prior centuries while flying other race's ships.

Cover your eyes, plug your ears, and hum.

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.

No.... besides Battlestars already have nacelles.

I do agree that KDF needs more ships, but that's not a good reason to not give the Feds a Jupiter class.

Only by the broadest interpretation of the definition. They're flight pods (effectively detached hangars), not warp nacelles.

Uh, NO. Those are amidships. The Jump engines in that picture are located at the rear of the ship in housings seperate from the main hull.

Those aren't jump engines, they're sublight drives. Jump drive machinery is deep inside the superstructure of the ship (it's shown when Tyrol discovers the massive crack forming along Galactica's superstructure in the lead up to the series finale), and isn't actually an "engine" as we recognize it because FTL travel in that 'verse is more akin to Einsteinean space folding than actually moving the ship at a velocity faster than the speed of light.

Those are thruster style engines, not warp nacelles. Battlestars don't operate on warp-drive, they just a different means of FTL. As I'm sure you're aware. The FTL on a Battlestar is internal.

As soon as the KDF gets this then it's fair for the Fed to get a new carrier.

to add to your list

+5 Tac Console B'Rel Bird Of Prey

`my reasons? the B'Rel BoP is a true glass cannon, exactly what ALL escorts should be, it should have +5 tac console.
most escorts have hugs hulls and MASSIVE damage and the ability to tank and defend itself better than almost every other ship, The B'Rel has low hull and should have massive damage exactly what people who want to DPS everything should be flying! ... Period.

to the OP, the Atrox is fine, to be a carrier you depend on your fighters, as for the Vesta its a horrid ship, its the most vile statement of a ship.
I played from Open Beta and I still continue to play, during the first and second year of STO Tactical Captains where able to use Science Powers better than Science Captains who had spec'd their skills to that power.
in turn cryptic down toned every skill that the Tactical Captains used... the Vesta just gives Tactical Captains the edge over true Science/Science Captains.

as for the Armitage Escort Carrier, its a vile statement against the KDF, who continue to this day to recieve nothing. maybe a mirror ship in this box and mirror ship in that box.

Secondly, one snapshot of one conflict, told from an entirely Federation-centric point of view with a limited effects budget, does not a comprehensive understanding of a battle doctrine, or a faction's entire arsenal make.

You do realize if this happens I'm going to have to name it the Macon right?

Honestly, it's been years since I watched that show. I love that pic!

I do seem to remember the engine pods glowing when they charged for an FTL jump. But maybe I was imagining it....

Anyways, the ACTUAL point I was making is that the Battlestars have engine nacelles. (so what if they [possibly] aren't used for FTL)

I think the Federation has enough ships....it's time for the game to move in a new direction and focus more on an expanded KDF and a playable Romulan faction with new story missions,ships and costume options. Federation play has become dull and tedious, gaining all the unique features the KDF once had with little to nothing given in return to the KDF. If you Feds believe you are superior to the Klingons,why do you want our 'inferior' ships and equipment?
