I'm not in the "MUST HAVE T5 CONNIE" camp, but I mean really? If I can have a D7 T5 fleet ship at end game, and I can have a T5 TOS style Rom BoP at end game, then why can I not have a T5 fleet Exeter at end game? If we have to talk to CBS about this, then I say we do so, since Cryptic apparently won't or can't get the message across.

The "why can't I have X" was mentioned in the podcast. Dan said they plan to discuss it with us when the question comes up at launch. He didn't elaborate about it or about what the plan is. It will probably be in a Dev Blog at some point closer to May 21st.
STO is about my Liberated Borg Federation Captain with his Breen 1st Officer, Jem'Hadar Tactical Officer, Liberated Borg Engineering Officer, Android Ops Officer, Photonic Science Officer, Gorn Science Officer, and Reman Medical Officer jumping into their Jem'Hadar Carrier and flying off to do missions for the new Romulan Empire. But for some players allowing a T5 Connie to be used breaks the canon in the game.

Sorry, meant to say "have a D7 T5 fleet ship at end game." And haven't listened to the podcast yet, waiting to have more time.

Thanks for pulling out the soundbites though, very nice.

I just have one question.

Will the Romulans get a cloaking carrier or flight deck cruiser?

In the Scimitars only on-screen appearance, it had a hanger full of scorpion fighters (that were never launched-might have saved Shinzon's bacon there at the end, but he was not exactly smart). It seems likely that the scimitar or a variant of it will have a hanger.

Good. I expected something like this. If the T5 Mogai is any good I will certainly buy one.

Another reason to go KDF ... not that I ever considered joining the Feds with my upcoming Romulan anyway

*sigh*
They better hurry up with this.

How is this going to work? Ally with a high tier fleet and get access to all their unlocked stores?

They better drop this idea NOW. If this ever gets implemented there will be no reason to play anything but Feds.

Well, given the trend of C-store ships of late to have some kind of combat pet ability, I'm sure it will have at least one hangar bay. I should probably elaborate -- I'm hoping for something more akin to the Armitage-class, compared to the Atrox or Vo'quv. My dream ship here is agile, escort-level hull and shields with a focus on mobility and cloak for survival, three fore and three aft weapons with no dual cannons, two hangar bays. Give it a "fire on my mark" or "sensor analysis" like ability for buffing combat pet damage against your selected target, a 2/3/5 console allotment, and a Lt. tactical slot, Lt. and ensign engineering slots, and Lt. Cmdr. and Cmdr. science slots.

Great episode, all the important questions were asked IMO. I really get that this update is focusing on major story updates and I appreciate it. Once this groundwork is done, I'm sure we'll see FEs which progress the main story much more instead of self-contained tales like the Dominion or Breen series.

I cannot wait for May to come.

Btw: I've read or listened to pretty much all the dev interviews that were conducted during the last 14 months, and my experience honed spidey senses let me interpret Dan's response to the T5 connie thing as "Yes, it will finally come".

I got that vibe myself - that every Faction is going to get Fleet ships from all Tiers - but I am not going to read too much into it until we finally get a Blog about it.

Dan's last line about the Forums.....talk about understatement
