    “Fanboys” pay for the game, and STO isn’t a simulator. IRL you’re lucky to get to command a warship at all, much less have a small fleet to shift your flag among because reasons. A naval warfare sim would bomb hard if U.S.S. Monitor could slug it out toe to toe with Yamato in game, but Star Trek is science fantasy so it’s OK that 23rd century ships can mop the floor with ships “built” centuries later.

    In my opinion, more ships, especially Mirror Universe ships, are always welcome. We can never have too many ships in this game. I just hope it comes with an MU themed Crossfield interior.

    It's already done. They put out the bridge with the last patch, for use with the two other mirror disco ships. It's actually pretty nice looking, although the crew is a mix of old and new unis and the ops station guy is floating a foot above his chair.

    True, still i like it.. also, what update to the destroyers?? there was an update??, perhaps a T6 in the near future???

    Check last week's patch notes for the Dyson update. It's actually pretty much a nerf - some stuff that was supposed to be disabled in tac mode wasn't happening (or, ya know, they just changed their minds on those).

    There's always hope for a T6 update to the few remaining ships that haven't gotten one, but as always I would not get my hopes up (I am personally rooting for a T6 Patrol Escort with a fixed experimental phaser cannon replacing the tail gun). It would be a major improvement for the Dyson ships to swap that fixed proton cannon for an experimental slot, though.

    Add an experimental slot. Move the Proton DHC to the experimental slot, make it a 360 DHC. Not like there's a huge amount of support for proton damage anyways. And it's not like Cryptic did much to poke at the Dyson Science Destroyer after pushing it out the door.

    So, Mirror Crossfield class incoming.

    Wonder what the method of obtaining will be....
    My bet is on R&D promo, since the bog standard Crossfield is in lockboxes (and remains the only hero ship not available in the C-Store).

    Well....the T6 Connie was also lockbox. I think R&D? As was both Kelvin (JJverse) ships, Enterprise and the intel dread.

    But I agree that the mirror Crossfield will likely be a gamble ship. I would love to see it as Cstore, but agree that is unlikely.
    The T6 Constitution is (lamely) R&D, true, but you can still get it at T2 for free (or the T1 and Exeter versions in the C-Store). I'm not particularly a fan of DSC, but it still sucks that the people who are can't easily fly the show's main ship.

    Lets be honest, they have an 'odd' history with regard to the main ships of the show at Endgame level. I mean:

    ENT: T6 NX class is a Lobi store ship
    DSC: Crossfield class is a Lockbox ship. (Status of mirror Crossfield TBC)
    TOS (inc TOS movies): T6 Constitution is a R&D Prize ship
    TNG: Galaxy class is a C-store and Fleet ship. Also has full interior via C-store;
    Sovereign class is a C-store and Fleet ship
    DS9: Defiant class is C-store and fleet ship. Also has full interior via C-store
    VOY: Intrepid class is C-store and fleet ship. Also has full interior via C-store

    most of those ships are from series not running, I can understand doing the connie as a R&D ship they did not want everyone flying a connie in game all the time, the crossfield is a ship from a running series so again they did not want the entire community running the "new" ship etc. etc. simple logic.
