    Please bring us the New Orleans class from TNG (the U.S.S. Kyushu).

    Not only is it a cool-looking ship from the TNG era (designed to essentially be a developmental precursor to the Galaxy class), but the New Orleans class has something that could make it unique and therefor motivate players to buy it:

    The New Orleans class was a light cruiser/frigate with modular upgrade hardpoints (pods) so that Starfleet could quickly and easily deploy the latest technology for testing in the field.

    In TNG the U.S.S. Kyushu had three "pods" (two above the saucer and one below the secondary hull) ... and the STO devs could use that concept to give this ship a special upgrade slot that takes one of three optional consoles (that only fit inside this ship's special upgrade slot).

    Each of the unique consoles would give this ship some unique trait/ability for science, engineering, or tactical ... but you can only mount one on a New Orleans class ship. So you have a maneuverable cruiser that is customizable so the player has his or her choice of extra science abilities, extra engineering abilities or extra tactical powers.

    That's just an idea to do something cool with the hardpoints/pods on the New Orleans class. I don't care what the devs do as long as they add the New Orleans class to STO.

    I would like to see the Sydney-class (USS Jenolan, from the episode Relics) as a Lieutenant-level ship:

    I would like to see the Federation-class (USS Star Empire from the TOS novel Dreadnought!) as a T5 or T6:

    Thanks for the new Connie skin. Beautiful work! It needs navigational strobes, however, to complete the look...A new bridge and interior would be a nice touch as well. Then, we could move on to the Excelsior and give it a similar facelift?...

    Re-watching the episode the U.S.S. Centaur appeared in and looking over the model artwork, I would love to see the skin reworked to ad all the copper colored ECM plating and nodes on the upper saucer section and wings, the four phaser turrets on the upper rear of the saucer, and the forward facing shuttle bay.

    On another note I'm surprised cryptic doesn't have access to the https://www.st-starships.com subscription where they could see, hold and add so many canon ships and gain ideas to create more advanced versions. Also each model comes with notes about the class of ship and they could create consoles based off the notes.

    Since it's pre-divergence, being from the 2160's, and all the Kelvin Timeline ships now in game kind of blow away the whole 'no AOS Movies' thing that used to exist anyway, what about ...I don't think they actually named its class, but the USS Franklin from "Beyond"? I mean, we've got the NX, NX Refit and Daedalus, which are all from roughly the same time frame, so that's not a concern.

    Make it T6, capable of equipping a cloaking device and come with a special console that does massive damage to small targets (NPC fighters, targetable torpedoes, mines, etc.) in close (less than one or two km) range, it could work.



    By the way, on another subject...
    Personally, I'd still like to see the ship from TNG: "Gambit" (where it was used by Arcus Baran's mercenaries) and DS9: "Vortex" (Where it was the Miradorn ship) added as a cross-faction ship.

    Privateer Lock Box ship? Totally called it!

    Has any considered beginning this thread over and starting it with a list of all of the canon ships that were successfully implimented and placed into the game.

    Does anyone know if there's any plans to add (cue the haters...) any of the ships from "Star Trek: Discovery" to the game?

    (Or will that come with a 2018 or 2019 'Discovery'-themed expansion?)

    I, too, would love to see the Jenolan. It would make a PERFECT ship for a T6 Scout ... and now that we have the new T5 Lukari scout ship I'm sure the devs are planning to try out a T6 scout.

    Speaking of T6 scouts, I'd also like to get a Cardassian Hideki T6 scout that comes with spiral wave disruptor cannons (since we already have spiral wave disruptor beams in the game).

    I would like to see the archer class, from the star trek vanguard novels.
  • turbomagnusturbomagnus Member Posts: 3,476 Arc User
    Might I recommend a "Mirror 'Palace'-class Dreadnought Cruiser", ala the ISS Charon, for the next Duty Officer Pack promotional ship?

    I'd love to see the New Orleans class as a playable ship too. It's always been one of my favorites despite having so little screen time in the show.

    what about ...I don't think they actually named its class, but the USS Franklin from "Beyond"?

    A display in the film names it as a Freedom Class. A different Freedom Class appears in TNG (the USS Firebrand in BoBW). I think this would be the only instance of a Federation ship where two different classes have the same name. Though the Federation have used the same designation (D7) to refer to two different Klingon ship classes (the Sech and the K't'inga).​​

    Norway and Yeager dammit... I still want my Typhoon and Jupiter though.
    JJ Trek The Kelvin Timeline is just Trek and it's fully canon... get over it. But I still prefer TAR.

    The ships I'd like to see now are the Freedom class and Challenger class. These could be set as Tier 1 ships even. Fitting to put in a similar KDF and ROM variant of the Freedom class too... :3
    Still wanna see the Type 9 and Type 11 shuttles as well.

    Although this seems to be a dead or neglected thread, I'd like to pose an STO version of the Achilles-class as a new Star Cruiser archetype.

    Its main feature would be a set of 4x Quantum Micro-Torpedo Launchers; which fire twice as fast as regular Quantums, but deal only 1/4th the damage per torpedo, and are limited to 135' broadside arcs. 2x Launchers per side, each firing off a volley of 4 micro-torpedoes. Similar to the Fixed Weapon mounts on Escorts/Destroyers, these weapons would be Fixed to Star Cruisers, but removable for rarity/level upgrade purposes. These weapons would always be first affected by Torpedo: Spread skills, but not Torpedo: High Yield skills. On the other hand, these weapons also always multi-target, with each of the 4 torps heading to a different target, in order by range. It's only when there are less than 4 targets that the spare torpedoes focus on a specific target.

    It doesn't need a console, though adding a console that increases the firing arcs to a full 315 degrees (sides and rear) as a continuous passive and increases the number of torpedoes launched by 1 per launcher works. Of course, said console is limited to Star Cruisers.

    Other than that, the stats would mostly be geared towards a heavy survivability focus (Command or Miracle Worker BOff Lt.Cmdr seat) with a minor secondary attack focus (Intel BOff Lieutenant seat), with a standard 4/4 cruiser weapon set.

    Then expand the design to equivalent KDF/Romulan variants, with the KDF also using Quantums but having a 5/3 weapon loadout, whereas the Romulans use Romulan Plasma Micro-Torpedoes instead but retain a 4/4 weapon loadout.

    Be like the Borg, and Adapt to changes first. Only after you've Adapted do you have the right to complain about said changes, as you're not the Borg, but you understand the changes.

    I like this idea. Well rounded and not too OP, but with enough advantages to make it desirable. Always been a fan of the Achilles, so much so that I continue to try and replicate her with an Arbiter/Avenger Battlecruiser.

    That Captain Proton Rocket Ship would simply be phenomenal and yet, sadly I doubt that they would even consider it. Too bad!

    two ships I would like too see are the U.S.S. Incursion from Armada II and Star Trek: Away Team. this ship has a holo masking system that allows it to appear as any other ship (to be used for stealth infiltration)
    another is the Venture class first seen in Star Trek: insurrection (piloted by Data I think) and seen again in Armada 1 and Armada II. It would make for an interesting T1 ship that could maybe also do shuttle stuff for new players or whatever.

    U.S.S. Incursion I believe was a heavily modified defiant variant
    Venture class is a really small scout vessel with (I think) a crew of only 5 or so (yes I know crew levels are no longer counted in STO, I listed it so you could get an idea of how small it is)

    also the shuttle ARGO and it's accompanying buggy from Star Trek Nemesis.

    the buggy could be useful when traveling large distances on the ground map like the Dyson BZ or at nimbus.

    shuttle argo and buggy from ST:nemisis:

    I'm still wanting the return of the Heavy Bird Of Prey. Although I could complain t hat we haven't had a T5 or T6 heavy bird of prey like we had that I think is considered a dilithium ship or maybe T4 bordering on a T5. The game has had so many years and tech that didn't exist yet and talents that had not yet joined their various STO Teams. I'm just looking at it from a positive viewpoint that the lack of KDF content was just so it could be way better now.

    The one idea I had after loving these jem hadar ships like those two pilot/wingman mechanics. Is combining that tech with some of the multi vector tech. So a heavy bop could function on its own with commands/powers and then have like the wing men pieces when it could seperate into 3 bops. I think it would be pretty cool but not sure if the demand for something like this would be high enough to get it made. What would be great is if I was way too late on this and already being made yep I could deal with that lol.
