    A promo ship no doubt, most likely R&D.

    It's pretty sure not a common lockbox ship. We just had a new lockbox, no way they'd release another one so soon. So promo, I guess.

    To me it looks like a manta ray with nacelles on the end.

    It was cool for a villain ship, but I'm not interested in flying that thing. As for release method, Lockbox seems very unlikely because we just had a new lockbox, Promo seems odd since we just had a promo weekend but that may have been a filler since they messed up the XP weekend, Lobi seems unlikely because they haven't added a ship to that in a long time, and C-Store is extremely unlikely. I'll put my money on Promobox.

    I'd love it to be Lobi, especially with the upcoming opportunity to get effectively a free Lobi ship, but my guess would be R&D as we've just had a new Lockbox and I can't for a second imagine it being C-Store.

    I bet it's going to be a pricey Promo Pack ship.

    That's a huge amount of pets.

    Prolly best route is infinity pack so will be 1-1.5B

    I dunno, some scientist somewhere is working on flying pigs I suppose... So it might happen.

    Then again, I've probably got an equal shot of waking up tomorrow to find all my hair has grown back and my waistline shrunk overnight to what it was thirty years ago.

    I am just wondering what all those particles are going to do to lag. The mass wave of enemies stuff already strains the game engine without a few million of those drones flying around. Making it an almost impossible to get ship might actually be a good thing...

    IT DRAGS!
    IT LAGS!
    IT EVEN COMES WITH CRYPTIC'S OWN BAD PET AI!

    It's the all new Scryer/Hur'q hybrid ship! And it can be your's for the low cost of 3000 Zen! Buy now! Don't Wait!

    Question is, which Star Trek actor did they waste money on, when they do an episode to showcase this one? Doesn't seem like a Geordi one to me.

    What particles? They looked more like an Altamid swarm to me (although I'm not sure how Section 31 would have gotten their hands on those).

    This one is on the fence for me..

    I like the look, like the pets.. it will just come down to the specs of the ship for me. If it's got a layout that works for me, I'll probably grab one.. if it doesn't fit my needs I'm content to pass on it.

    Looking forward to seeing the stats.
    Insert witty signature line here.

    For me to spend my remaining billions on a ship it needs to be a step up from the Discovery Flight deck cruiser. And the trait would have to actually be worth a damn not like all the current ones. If it does not I am not interested. Even if I want to annoy people with all the pet swarming. Since for some reason that aggravates people.

    Ugly. Check.
    Ridiculous concept. Check.

    Interest. None.

    I hope those who get it enjoy it.

    itll be an rnd box ship no doubt. an interesting idea for the pets would be to make them more like a mechanic as opposed to pets, its will keep the lag down. the way the saucer visibly changes on launch,its it a possibility. similar to a tactical mode switch or saucer separation concept.
    the pets do circle the ships similar to the way swarmers circle hive ships in the gamma quadrant fights.

    Personally, I hope I will not met any in team in a TFO - this looks like 2 of them on the same map will kill framerate on my PC...

    Sigh.. another promo ship. .after a massive cash grab 10 pack.. I get that this stuff is the life blood of the game but.. there's so much BROKEN stuff in this game right now, we have a laundry list of missions that don't work and have to skipped, abilities that are broken and constant re-occurring glitches like warp outs, people standing around after being killed and the lag has been atrocious lately across areas like Dyson

    Just like.. I dunno.. could you get some more people to fix these problems? It's just ship ship ship ship ship, maybe a fix or two, tons more problems and than ship ship ship ship.

    Improve the product Cryptic, you keep asking for money while the games been in constant state of degradation

    Right after the most expensive C-Store pack ever, a lobi sale, a global ship sale and another infinity pack promo... all in one month and the latter ended just 3 days ago. And that's not including the lifetime promo just a little bit more than 1 month ago.

    Does the marketing team even know the word "timing"?

    The money is needed both to keep the lights on at Cryptic and in a desperate attempt to make the new M:TG look like something other than a 10-year old isometric 2D RPG written for an aging console system.

    Fixes for STO await some sort of miracle and/or corporate management change.
