Feds need more ships. LOL

No. Add in more KDF and Rommie ships. Then you fed fanboys can get your more ships that you desperately need.
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.

Recently I was thinking about how many ships federation is not yet added to the game. I will answer: a lot.

For example, known to all class of New Orleans.

Or fanmade Insignia Class.

Or even Ascension Class.

And also my question to the community manager: Are you going to add any of the ships listed above?

And please add more varieties of Class Odyssey (because in my opinion, these three versions for Zen and basic like in appearance there is no difference, except the rear hangar).

And to everyone else support my idea.

Feds don't need more ships.

Cryptic has to go through an incredible hassle of legal stuff to use fanmade ships, just look at the Vesta.

Why do people want ships that were only seen once as a burnt hull at Wolf 359?

And also, it's spelled canon, not cannon.

I do agree though, that Odyssey could use some variants.

Dude. The way he was referring to it in the title, he meant canon - which means official lore for something, in this case Trek. He wasn't referring to those things that fire a dual shot of energy from ships.

The other factions need ships, not the feds.

Exactly because they were only a burnt hull at Wolf 359, that's why. It's illogical to implement ship types just for destroyed ships without acknowledging their implied existence before their destruction as members of starship classes yet unseen by the audience. They're also perfect candidates for additional ships to fill out ship choices for players.

Though I do admit the KDF and Republic could use more ships first...

to sum is up

lockbox ships+all player base= more money
FED+large player base+new ships= money
KDF+smaller player base+new ship= less money
Except that you're forgetting the effects of market saturation. The Federation is saturated with almost every kind of ship you can imagine (layout-wise, anyway). Romulans and Klingons are starved for Science vessels (and the latter for any kind of new ship, really). Release a Wolf 359 kitbash with Vesta-like stats, and a few players will bite. Release it for one of the other two factions, and everyone looking for a new Science ship for that faction will at least think about trying it out.
