    I couldn't care less if everyone else in the game has one or not. It only matters to me if I have one.

    Having a snifter of brandy in the library at the 'Club' with Colonel Mustard and reminiscing over a digital ship from days gone by just doesn't have much appeal. :)

    Awlriiight....do I get credit for this idea?
    <Snip>

    I'd consider it IF it came in reverse, so to speak - you could buy a ship & got the C-store version to fly online. That's the one you should customize.

    Marketing is akin to hypnotism.

    Offer me Attack Wing ships that come with an electronic version to use online, then we'll talk.

    If it's only fifteen bucks, I will probably pick one up. I said I'd consider it if they ever gave out codes for Online ships to accompany ship models, though it was about those 3D printed ones. Price seems more than fair for an attack wing expansion, too.

    Well, 22nd November this year is 20 years since First Contact debuted, so at least someone seems to care about one anniversary this year after the joke attempt at commemorating the other one on STOs part.
    Seriously, what a joke, devoting an entire expansion and a bunch of ships to TOS for the Anniversary of Star Trek, was a pathetic joke.

    One single ship, that however is totally a real appreciation of an anniversary.

    The "expansion" came out long before the anniversary, what they did to recognize the actual day WAS a joke.
    And, does it matter? The day is over in the blink of an eye. The AOY Expansion will be with us until the game servers are closed down, and be a significant monument to TOS that will be available to present and future players to remind them of Star Trek's origin.

    Agreed, not to mention the fact that it remains something that can be further built upon.

    This is far better than a sub one percent drop rate in an R&D pack. Sovereign fans rejoice!

    I read the description in the link and it says the Enterprise E is "Following the destruction of Starfleet’s Flagship, the U.S.S. Enterprise-E was built to be bigger, faster and more powerful than ever." The only thing bigger about the Sovereign class compared to the Galaxy class is the length. I am still hoping that we get a T6 sovereign class someday.

    ..... :| ..... like the one I linked to in the initial post?

    The USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-E) was a 24th century Federation Sovereign-class starship operated by Starfleet.

    Thank you for posting something I already know. There is definitely not enough answers to prove if this is a T6 sovereign class. Need more evidence.

    From your post, it would appeared that you did not.

    I hate to say it, but we probably won't get a Romulan or Klingon equivalent. We should. But if you look at the history of STO, they don't always do Romulan and Klingon counterparts to stuff like this. I wish they did. I hope I'm wrong. I would buy all three ships. The chances are, this is a one time deal. Again, I hope I'm wrong. But if they do keep doing this, it would certainly encourage me to buy more Attack Wing stuff. But, if we are going to speculate that they will do this kind of promotion again, and, we want to speculate on what ships they will offer, then take a look at the next two expansions for Attack Wing. I really hope I'm wrong, and that they do this more often. In fact, I would also love to see STO specific content in Attack Wing. The Dhelan is my favorite design. An Attack Wing mini and a tier six version of that ship would be awesome. For me, the draw is not that it is the Sovereign, but that it is a combination Attack Wing/STO deal. So, Cryptic, please do more of these.

    Hello anybody home. Wake up STO fans.... This has nothing to do with STO but the "Star trek Attack wing" game. lol

    You clearly did not read the article, or perhaps it is you that is not home. I'm not the media, nor am I expected to fully vette what I post. It appeared to be accurate. The picture of the product clearly shows a notice that it contains an STO code. The article is about how the product will have a code for an STO ship. This makes it STO relevant and obviously, until Cryptic confirms it, it's not fully supported, but that doesn't change the fact that it is there and for some of us that would love to have a T6 Sov, it's far more hope than we had last week while in the same boat as the poor Nova fans...no offense Nova fans! I hope you get your ship soon as well.

    @reyan01 don't lose hope. I think they will eventually release a t6 nova. The good thing about cryptic taking so long releasing the nova is that it might actually get a good specialization and boff layout.

    yes i saw link, tho it not has nothing with game, as its about Enterprise E so, i i went about NX :)
    also i want to say it would be nice to get t6 Sovergain, t6, Nova, t6 Vor'cha, t6 Wells, t6 Miranda-ok this one is quite old, but if its used in 25th cenutry, let tradition continue :)

    Riseofthephoenix is a relatively new player assumably and is either not aware STO codes for DLC can be found in unconventional places or has a reading comprehension problem.

    I for one am going to look for a table top game shop in my area and going to pick one up the day it comes out. I am a collector of rare and odd collectables in STO. Hopefully it won't be available via CSTORE so it wont be common and would make a great conversation piece.

    Yes I'm a new player. Well 4 years new player. (lol). and no I don't have a reading problem. Unlike some I'm much more concern about the state of the game after so many years out (I'm talking about bugs here. For PC).

    But when I look at all the bug fixes on the release note for console compare to PC release note (which has got as many bugs.), I have to wonder if the game isn't going to desappear from pc.

    Eventually being the operative word.
    To be fair, my well-known 'status' as a huge fan of the Nova class doesn't mean that I am blind to the ship's standing in the game. I am well aware that it is by no-means a player favourite and never expected that it would place very high on the priority list – that ship sailed (no pun intended) when they failed to do anything with it during Delta Rising, where the USS Rhode Island featured quite prominently as a byprodcut of Garret Wang doing the voicework for her Captain, Harry Kim.

    I will however say that, whilst I am pleased that it would appear that the fans of the Sovereign class are going to get their wish, I am disappointed that the next new ship is yet another another cruiser. I know cruisers are popular. I know that the Sovereign class is a hero ship. I know this is tied into the anniversary of the movie 'First Contact' and it's release its tied into a non-STO related promotion. None of this changes the fact that majority of new ships lately seem to be cruisers, cruisers and more cruisers.

    And the worst thing? It doesn't even bring anything new to the table; seriously - it's a command cruiser which means it will be inferior to the Command Battlecruisers and the T6 Flagship Cruisers. By all accounts , I don’t see how this can be anything more than a Yamato, Resolute or Andromeda class in a different skin – and that's a real shame.

    And to be clear, my only 'issue' here is that I feel that something other than another cruiser should have been the next new ship release. I don't expect much agreement here; simply stating opinion.

    ^"it has nothing with the game"

    Another award winner for not reading closely.

    That is fine, it will make me and a few others more special flying in our exclusive wizkids T6 Sovereign. That's okay.

    Just start calling the Nova a mini-cruiser....from the side, it kinda looks like one...that may be enough to catch their attention.

    You saw the link...yet failed to read. It's about their new Enterprise-E pack coming with a code for a Command Assault Cruiser...aka Sovereign in STO.

    I just picture the Sov carrying one on it's back now, much like the -D had that space slug thing on it's back in one of the TNG episodes. :smile:

    I hope this isn't a promo only ship where I have to go around the houses to purchase the code. I.E international order and wait for shipping. I don't have a comic book/arts and craft type store where I live. I'd much rather just pay Cryptic the full £30 direct to the Zen Store and claim the ship.

    Even more unlikely when Cryptic seem to be moving away from releasing cstore ships outside of a big bundles.

    The last cstore ships were in the Temporal pack months ago, and no ships other than gamble ships since then.. :(

    Okay, so I missed the STO bit way, way, way down the page, but I also notice that it's in $'s, so that means that this offer won't be available to us over the pond!

    Not necessarily. It's possible that you are correct, although it is also of note that, in the UK, Waterstones (bookshop) stocks Attack Wing merchandise. So it doesn't seem entirely impossible that this will be made available outside of the US.

    True. It should have been a Temporal Battlecruiser with a LtC Uni/Intel seat, just like the D7. Players would buy it and the forums would be an interesting place for at least a week.

    Yes, i found attack wing stuff for online sale at a British retailer because it had a £ on it. They even had the exact ship we are talking about w/code available for preorder. So its not so NA exclusive.
