Can't wait to blow up a few of these new ships ( in ker'rat) on the first day they come out.
Ah yes. Beware feddies, you will be hunted a little extra that day
Just a little rain for your parades.
And when it turns out that the Kumari line of ships actually has 5 Forward Weapons, at least 2 Aft Weapons, and a total of 10 Consoles... Then your threats will be well warranted. Because then the Kumari will be the single most powerful ship in the game.
If however, it turns out to have anything less than what I have specified (less than 5 Forward Weapons, or less than 2 Aft Weapons, or less than 10 Consoles, or some combination of these less than's) then your threats are unjustified in any regard because then, it will just be another ship of the line and not a threat.
What I expect to see is a ship that is about equal to the Jem'Hadar Attack Ship without being so exorbitantly over priced as to make it near impossible for the vast majority of the gaming community to be able to access it. This way people other than just those who are willing to shell out the equivalent to 400,000,000 to 500,000,000 energy credits can actually have an opportunity to participate in serious competitive level PvP and other things.
Heh... and the irony of this thing being a flying gun means that they will try to distract us from the obvious short-falls of the other two ship classes by baiting us with this new escort. And they have stressed it's wing-mounted cannons to the point where they will try to distract us from the fact that beams are not nearly as good as they should be.
I see this ship as two things.
1) A distraction away from the problems with cruisers and science ships.
2) A beautifully designed (at least as it's in-game sprite goes) escort/heavy escort/destroyer based off of a nice (albeit ancient) ship design.
I will reserve further judgment until it's stats come out. Hopefully it's not as much of a disappointment as the JHEC and JDC were.
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.
