    Actually that race started with the British built Battleship HMS Dreadnought.

    It was the name of the ship that revolutionized Naval Battleship construction. It was the first ship with tiered rotating large guns and made every other predecessor obsolete in an instance. So every other naval power needed their own battleship to content this new innovative design.

    Which is ... kind of exactly what the guy you're trying to correct just said.

    Indeed

    HMS Dreadnought = Scimitar

    Like I said it made every other ship obsolete
    You repeated what I've been saying.

    +1, Easily we will need the increased firepower (tyhoon) and mass (jupiter) for the upcoming onslaught of Undine and their penchant for planet killing.

    Let's try and get the normal Typhoon first ;P Then we can ask for a Mirror Version but I don't think that Cryptic would make Mirror versions of C-Store Ships since they'd lose out. I wouldn't mind having a Mirror Universe hull material to put on the normal Typhoon though I'd be happy with just that.

    I support the Typhoon wholeheartedly, especially if it has a Lt.Cmdr Tac seat.

    Jupiter would be cool but I worry about them clogging up the space around ESD. Perhaps ownership of it could be a perk of being a fleet commander or senior fleet officer?

    The Jupiter should be an uber-hard nut to crack and be able to dish out abominable firepower but I think it would really add to the realism if it had some innate shortcomings that made it impractical for solo play but perfect as a group leader.

    I practically know nothing about the Typhoon and Jupiter class.

    You guys need to make it worth my while if i'm going to spend money to buy those two ship classes or variants.

    Hit me with the stats and for the love of God...

    Could they at LEAST give background and the stats like for the Intrepid, Sovereign, and Defiant classes show us the ship, background on the class even what the bridge would look like

    What's the crew compliment as I know some of us use our ships in our own private fan fiction that we may or may not post online.

    So what is wrong giving us the history of the classes,

    Like General Overview of the class, Class history, Technical data, Physical arrangement, decks, Command and control systems and the rest. I am TIRED of being STUCK at Vice Admiral/Lieutenant General and being so damned bored that reading War and Peace sounds more interesting than STO every second of every day. "Oh just log on an work on Endgame components." Sure, pop on, spend money and resources and come back twenty hours later to repeat the process all over again.

    WHAT IS THE POINT of every twenty hours daily for the reputation and save your breath if you're going to tell me "Endgame level equipment" or anything even remotely like that.

    And when the HELL is the damn exchange going to have NORMAL prices not stark raving mad prices of over three million for some components and nearly twenty million for ultra rare TRIBBLE! "Well we feel that we have to jump through all those hoops to get it/create it/forge it so why shouldn't we get something for our efforts?" You want something for your efforts...Go ride your Warp core and spin

    I've been hearing talk about this and I really think, it's a bad idea it will cause fleets to break apart... and if the fleet admiral wanted to he/she could promote someone in the fleet long enough for the member to get the ship and depromote him. Maybe Cryptic COULD create a system to block this but it's unlikely and I believe it would be unfair for people that are in a fleet.... it's just my opinion..........

    This isn't a Thread to rant about Exchange prices and Endgame Grinding if you want to discuss that go and make your own thread.

    As already stated by some of the other thread-participators this is a SUPPORT thread and not meant for you to rant...

    Anyways, to come to your question "what are the Jupiter and Typhoon".

    Well, basically they are some of the oldest designs of the Game, the Jupiter being the first Dreadnought and the Typhoon being the first Battleship (NPC rank wise) on Federation side, long before ships like the Odyssey, Armitage,... took their places in several locations/missions.

    We [the supporters of this thread] want them to have a comeback as they are some of the Few main faction-Classes that are not playable yet (i actually think they are the only 2 main faction ships not playable yet).

    That's why we want em and love am ... nostalgia from the old days when there was no Odyssey, no Bundle ships, no Fleet Ships and no OP Romulans (man as i'm talking about it, i wish STO was like back then xD)

    Oh and i forgot to add, there was no power creep as we know it today. (I think to remember Science abiilities being insanely OP at that time though i'm not sure anymore when exactly that happened :P)
    And content was still challenging ...

    I should stop now... ;)

    A few Nausicaan, Orion, and Gorn ships and shuttles for the KDF and the old T'Liss Fighter for the Romulans.

    Norway and Yeager dammit... I still want my Typhoon and Jupiter though.

    I wouldn't count Gorn and Orion ships as Klingon (main faction) but somehow they're part of the empire ... I guess that's a definition thing.

    Anyways, did i already say i'd like to have one of those Gorn Dreadnoughts for my Klingon? ;)

    It would't be any worse than the monster Warbirds clogging up ESD space. And people need to realize that sector space around a planet isn't a damned parking lot.



    So, I have to respectfully disagree with you on this. The Jupiter should be available to the masses, not just to a few among the elite.

    Agreed, the space argument is invalid with all the Scimitars, D'Ds and Ha'Paxes parking in front of ESD.

    Quote: The Typhoon Class is a dreadnaught that will most likely not appear as a playable ship until we increase the skill point cap to full Admiral. Even then, we haven't yet decided if this will be a player ship, but we can be convinced to make it so if there is enough support for it.


    1: The Typhoon is a BATTLESHIP and will be referred to as such on this thread. The JUPITER is a DREADNAUGHT.

    2: This is SUPPORT thread, and not for discussion. Use the 100's of other threads for that.


    3: As said above, If there is enough support for the Typhoon and Jupiter classes, they will have a good chance to be added.


    4: If you don't agree, don't post please, or at least be nice about it.


    5: Go and post! For we WILL have these SSSSSSSSHHHHHHHHIIIIPPPPPPPPPPSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!


    I'd love a Typhoon with a D'deridex BOFF layout.

    My Odyessy has quite a light-years under its belt.. an upgrade would be nice, extra console slot.. maybe tier-up a boff slot..
    I could completely support a similarly-setup Typhoon.

    I support the Typhoon with a proper re-deisign (current model is ugly).

    I DON'T support the Jupiter, as it's simply hideous and would rather see some other new design instead.

    Change the design of the Typhoon? you must be joking It's one of the best Federation designs that Cryptic has produced, changing it would be blasphemy.
