(in general feedback because while is pertains to both faction shipyards, it seems silly to copy the thread into 2 separate ones)

For some time, lurking in and out of the forums you notice quite a few similar threads, the ones that im curious about now are "what ship will players want next"

For some time federation players have been asking (screaming incoherently sometimes) for ships like the ambasador (to finish the enterpise set), vesta for its potential op'dness and epicness, andorian broadsider, that turned out to not broadside, carriers etc.

For the KDF players, complaints over not getting ships, or asking/demanding for layouts/types rather than specific ships. e.g. an escort flight deck, any ship with 5 tact consoles, 'Free' sci dedicated ships for kdf. The only named ship i have ever seen is a K'vort.


But now that the main bulk is out of the way, what will people ask/demand/scream for now?

things I've seen but not seen much interst in include

-warship voyager
-Dauntless
-some federation ships where copright laws could be a devil to fight for
-K'vort
-and of course the idea of a T5 connie

My question is, what next?
Tactical Cube deals 338364 (204629) Kinetic Damage to Tactical Cube with Plasma Torpedo - Heavy III.
Recoil damage... Burn

Well, I suppose that now there are so many carriers in the game, there might be renewed demand for a true Starfleet designed carrier sooner or later.

If folks start to give up on the idea that the devs might change how beam weapons work, then there might be interest in a specific ship that uses beams in a unique way (rather than just a general reworking of beam mechanics I mean). Perhaps something like a ship that can merge its individual beams into a single more powerful beam, making for extremely powerful Overloads.

I'd also guess at a demand for KDF (and probably true Starfleet) 5 DHC escorts.

B'rel ~ what's the point in having a Bird of Prey with the Cruiser setup, I personally think it would be irrelevant.

A T5 Exeter at least.

Short of the Typhoon, I'd say the Wolf 359 Ships.

- New Orleans
- Freedom
- Niagara
- Challenger
- Springfield

Am I missing any? Suffice to say, short of (maybe) the New Orleans, I can't see Cryptic doing the others. I don't think there will be enough interest. Who's going to want to fly about with some of them ugly kit-bashes? At least the New Orleans has some uniqueness to it. The others don't.


The next (two) ships I want to see are the Federation Achilles and the Klingon Kvort'cha. In an Ask Cryptic, they said they can't use ships from other games specifically, but if certain ships have appeared (or were mentioned in) certain novels, then there is a chance we'll see them at some point. I do believe the Achilles has made it to a novel or two.

Q: (flash525) What is the Cryptic's policy where other designs from other games are concerned? The DS9: Dominion Wars game has the Federation Achilles, Klingon K'vorcha and a couple of Cardassian designs, the ST: Armada game has the Romulan Griffin and Shrike, along with a bunch of other Cardassian and Klingon designs. I'm sure there are other Trek games out there with further designs. Are we ever likely to see any of these within STO?

Dstahl: Good question. Our license with CBS is restricted to the TV Shows, the movies (up to Nemesis), the Animated Series, and some of the book fiction. Unfortunately, this license doesn?t extend to other video games. However, if those ships or factions appeared in any of the previously mentioned properties, then it is fair game.
