I only mentioned it because the Voth science vessel has a cloaking device. Not a battle cloak, and I believe that you need consoles for it, but a cloaking device nonetheless.

B Its not romulan
C soon as I spend the lobi on it cryptic will announce a vesta like vessel for romulans......

im very confused on which way to go...hold out and hope for season 14 when romulans get a science vessel (for a faction that is deeply rooted in science) or just get it now...altho id rather have the temporal ship...its pretty much the same but at least has a more romulan look to it
Already confirmed via podcast interview that the next Romulan ship is a "Vesta-Quality" Science Vessel, and that it should be available by end of 13 or early 14.

With no carrier and no sci ships I turned to the recluse. It's perfectly functional. A fine ship. But even with the reman shield (looks very cool) and sporting scorpion fighters I don't feel very Romulan. And that is a bit of a buzzkill.

My advice, especially with a rom sci ship in the works, is pass on the voth one.

Also, a new science vessel for Romulans would be so awesome, I hope it's true!

that is a hell of a wait tho...we could be sitting for another 6 months for something that should have already came out....

but since we like to have tactical with our tactical ships it would be fitting that the "science" vessel comes out with 4 tac consoles 3 sci consoles and 3 eng consoles and a commander tactical bridge slot.....forgive me but I have no faith in the design and implementation of anything cryptic studios does as of late

altho on a hopeful note...I was hoping/thinking that the Christmas ship will indeed be a generic universal science ship for all factions
last winter was a cruiser with tac like abilities, summer was a tac ship that I think most parked in their garages now, and every freebie ship to date (minus the imo ugly carrier we just got) has not been science in theme...

im still debating the damn palisade in the mean time...it does have a nice bridge and console layout regardless....

Well that is just great news. Maybe the KDF will get one too.

The visual Department specifically used forced perspective to make the ship look like it was about 1/3 the size of the Galaxy-class U.S.S. Enterprise-D. I fail to see why they cannot add that ship. So there would be two ships in the game that look the same just scaled differently. Big freaking deal.
They decided it was a terrible looking ship, which it is, so they released it as a shuttle variant.

Geko has stated they see the need for more Rom Sci ships, so they are coming eventually.
