Same bridge as the Federation Wells Class, just painted green, lazy design job there. Didn't even try to make it unique. Also, same exact powers as the Fed and KDF Temporal ships. Again, nothing at all to set them apart.

Shouldn't you be going back in time to complain that the KDF and Fed temporal ships are the same. And since you knew that, why did you expect them to be different?

Yeah, same ship, just different body. I hope you weren't expecting something new? I thought Cryptic did a pretty good job of telling people it's the same ship.
Sometimes I think I play STO just to have stuff to rant about on the forums!

I don't recall lockbox ships ever being different between faction. Why would these?

They did. Announcement, multiple Tribble patch notes, discussion thread, multiple dev replies, etc. Even Facebook, if I recall.

I don't mind them being the same ship, but the same bridge ? Really ? That's stupid.

Be happy you have a specific bridge to go with it at all. Many don't.

Well, it's a lazy job, In My Opinion.

I would have liked uniqueness across the factions.

You are confusing being lazy with practicality.

being lazy is thinking you cant be bothered to do something and putting your feet up instead of working.

The other lock boxes has 1 ship and 1 lobi ship. this has 3 ships and 3 lobi. The time spent making two further unique bridges for this lockbox where every other lockbox only requires one bridge will take time away from something else. something possibly more important will suffer and be delayed as a result.

In an ideal situation they would have all have totally unique bridges, but when they give us something, it takes away from something else. that is a practical design choice you can agree or disagree with, however it is not the same thing as being lazy though.

The Rom/Rem BOFFs come to mind.

R'Mor are more better than Wells/Korath.
