Yeah, how about we get a few Raptors/Destroyers and Science Ships for the KDF, and adding more ships to the Romulan lineup, before giving more unnecessary toys to the Federation. By now, the Federation practically has a ship for any build you can think of. Excellent variety of escorts, cruisers (and now an actual battlecruiser), and science ships, along with a carrier and 2 hybrid carriers. Enough is enough, for Pete's sake. I don't REALLY have anything against more ships for the Federation, but just fill out the OTHER factions first!
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.
Those vessels in the graveyard scene had models and artwork done up for them. And there were several more vessels confirmed as being of the New Orleans Class in valid source material.
And the omission of the Constellation Class is a glaring one.
I would rather see more of these canon "kitbashes" than more horrible monstrosities, like the Envoy and Pulsar, churned out of Cryptic's ship design department. And judging from Geko's comments in a recent interview, horrible homegrown monstrosities is what we are going to get in the future.
I vote for faction parity... and the Tinfoil Hat costume unlock for use when they conspire to leave the factions horribly out of balance. 'Cause they hate everyone without a chevron in their faction logo.
In all seriousness, though, I have pretty much anything I want available for my Federation characters. My other guys need a reason to spend money, instead of leaving me with such limited options that I can just trade dilithium in. Or buy Fleet Ship Modules off the Exchange. Though... it certainly saves me money not having new shinies all over the place, trying to pry open my wallet.

I have a better idea... lets give feds a ship with 5 universal commander station, 15 console slots and god mode... so finally feds have one decent ship... they absolutely need it because feds have not enough decent ships.
Nobody needs anything in regards to new vessels. The realistic way of looking at it would be "KDF players want new ships in the game".
To be honest, there are certain elements that are needed rather than just wanted.
Like for example, KDF and Romulan science ships. Let's face it, we have a character class in game that has only one dedicated class vessel at end-game in 2 out of 3 factions in game. The Klingons only have the Varanus, which is a copy of the D'kyr - a ship that is considered vastly underachieving and obsolete on the Fed side. And the Romulans have the Ha'nom - an overgrown slow turning hulk of metal that looks more like a starbase than a science vessel. And even that is arguably better than the Varanus.
That's one example where there really is a need for something rather than just a player desire to have more.
The federation doesn't need anymore ships. That's the last thing they need. KDF could use some ships. If cryptic needs to make money with KDF, I know how.
#1: Fix the Bortasqu' class ships. More turn rate. Allow disruptor auto cannon to be usable on Fleet Hoh'Sus class bird of prey. (2500 zen for tactical bortasqu' & 2000 zen for 4 modules)
#2: Remove cross faction consoles. All of them. KDF has the best consoles so players would have to buy KDF ships to use those consoles. Cryptic gave the federation players no reason to be KDF (really). Faction Diversity must exist. Make everything the same-- everyone will choose one faction (feds).
#3: More 'good' ships for KDF. Can't really sell anything if there's nothing good to buy. See the Rom Scimitar? That's called a 'good' ship. Give KDF something like that.
As for the federation, you give them a ship with six nacelles & warp 40-- instant $$$$. Too easy. The Feds are perfect. Work on other factions please. It can't be that hard. I'm sure another federation 3 pack is on its way
