I don't know if I'm the only one who noticed this. If you go to the second floor of the dil mine, the central column has a picture/diagram of a scimitar on it. It seems Cryptic is giving us a little Teaser/Easter Egg look at the new ship. Now, if only they would let us claim Scimitars to test from the column...
Also, the semi-secret (but not really) crystal cave thing-y outside is cool. Never seen so many colored crystals on any map in the game. Which raises a question: will the rich dilithium mining mission allow us to mine more than dil? There are definitely more than just dil colored crystals out there.
