Upcoming T6 Voth Ships

I love they are adding them in game, even if its via lockbox. I generally like the bastion has command spec commands and the palisade has temporal spec commands too. The Voth Zepellin(Bulwark) is missing but I still love the coming ships. This more or less started with updating the Tholian ships a while ago. I hope they continue updating the old "neutral" races ships to T6 - undine for example do not have even one T6.

While there are many things i dont like too among those cryptic has done or plans to do, my take on this front, keep up the good work Cryptic. I also believe its a fairly cheap way to bring new ships to T6 since they dont need to design them from scratch, just improve them if possible, add trait, console, spec sit and possibly spec commands.

What is your opinion on that and would you like more unalligned(neutral) races ships getting T6 versions in the future?

    Could mean that the next Update to the R&D Infinity will include the T6 Bulwark slipstreamed in.

    Its not impossible cause I dont remember ever unalligned races ships being added to C-store

    another possibility is to add it to the lobi store to make lobi more desirable or update the phoenix box with a T6 version

    They will not add that ship to the Phoenix, that is for no longer able to get ships. The original Bulwark was a Duty Officer Promotion Ship.

    Probably be a T6 Bulwark added as the next R&D promotion, all that is left if I recall is the Undine and the Hirogen ships...kinda want the Hirogen ships because it may mean we may have a chance some day to see the Huntmaster Dreadnought.

    Apart from Hirogen and Undine I think there are at least the Malon too - not sure if there is any Kazon ship too - generally its mostly delta quadrant ships. Vaadwaur should have all T6 by now but got to check it too.

    Since they added the Vaadwaur Juggernaut dread which is in comparable size I wonder if we will see any Voth Citadel Dreads in the future

    Yes agreed its a great idea and everyone has some ships they really like among the (mostly) delta quadrant ships that are/were only T5

    Well I didn't really mention the Malon ship because it was added as T5 after T6 launched....so I figured they weren't going to give the post T6 T5 ships the upgrade treatment.

    The Malon is one of those purposely built T5 ships serving as the newer secondary prize ship additions to Lockboxes instead of the Mirror Ships. They won't be given an Upgrade.

    You forget the replacement for the Ferengi T5 D'Kora. That has not arrived yet for more general circulation, though certain people were given an Account Unlock T6 GPL Nagus Marauder, which is a T6 D'Kora.

    Yes its why I hadnt mentioned Ferengi D'Kora

    I guess for back then it made sense to keep them T5 - but nowadays it may be better for Cryptic they get a version too on them

    Why would anyone want a Kazon ship? They were considered jokes in VOY (besides they are generally ugly, which was also part of the joke I think).

    Related, I think that there should, in addition, be an upgrade mechanic in the vein of T5->T5U which lets you upgrade one of these older ships into its T6 counterpart, provided the latter exists.

    By the way the blog has been updated and the voth science ship will be a lobi store ship

    We're actually going on about 2.5 years since Cryptic started replacing T5 lock box and lobi ships with upgraded T6 versions. Way before the T5 Tholian Orb Weaver was replaced with a T6 version. It all started with the release of the T6 Keldon and T6 Jem'Hadar Dreadnought on console in late 2016. Several months later, those ships made their way over to PC and replaced the T5 Galor and T5 Jem'Hadar Dreadnought in the infinity lock box and lobi store. The process has been ongoing ever since and will continue. After the impending Voth ship update, IIRC, the only ships left to update from the infinity lock box are the T5 Hirogen Hunter Escort, T5 Undine Nicor and the T5 D'kora. So take your pick from those 3 as to which one will be the next to be updated.

    Which version do you want? That ship model was slightly altered and reused for a total of 9 different aliens on TNG, DS9 and Voyager.

    They already have the T6 replacement for the D'Kora in game. It's just that not that many people have it.

    I noticed that the Voth Palisade prices had already been jacked up by the Ferengi on the Exchange to around 300 Million.

    The Kelvin Timeline Constitutions were all listed near 900 Million.

    You could make more money with Insider Trading here than on Wall Street. :)

    I actually quite like the design of that ship.
