    The Saturn is a 4/3 science ship, and there's a post about it now on the launcher. The other is the Einsenberg (after Aaron Eisenberg, the actor who portrayed Nog on DS9), which is looking like another mediocre event-ship cruiser.

    Aron deserved a better ship to be named after him. The toilet pedestal is actually pretty disrespectful to a DS9 and STO veteran. It should have either been classic Trek, or a Ferengi ship, but not bathroom class :-(

    CBS are the ones that designed the ship and named it after him, the only Cryptic decisions here were how to release it and what stats to give it.

    I would say that using someone's death as an attempt to justify why you don't like something is even more disrespectful.

    Annddd I think you're a sick and twisted mind to have taken that foul attempt to attack someone who doesn't appreciate the supposed design aesthetics of Discovery.

    At least it does not have the gaping ridiculous holes in it (really, what possible use could air and light shafts from 20th century buildings be in space?), or have half the hull glass, or just go through silly Transformers sequences for nothing like most of the other DSC s3 and s4 ships do. And since not only do the warp nacelle drones have small bussards on them, the main hull seems to have a big one on the front of the engineering section so they would not have to worry about somehow pumping fuel slush between the hulls.

    They could have done far worse for Eisenberg than they did, as shown all too often.

    Um. No. You don't get to tey to turn your own actions into my actions.

    My holiday wish-list ship (since we're already covering plumbing & toilet fixtures):

    Dyson Class Cruiser with giant vacuum sweeper visual
    -capable of ludicrous speed
    -Suck Console that removes atmosphere from entire planets
    -"Schwarz" trait that activates a raspberry jammer
    -Non combat pet MOG (Barf name not included)

    I'd pop for over 2B EC for this!

    Going to love flying the Eisenberg just to annoy all the people that have a fanatical hatred of Discovery.

    I'm not particularly fond of Discovery but am going to fly the Eisenberg because it seems like a cool ship named after an actor I like. I honestly doubt you'll annoy anyone as there should be lot's of them in-game.

    This isn't about the "hatred of discovery", this is about how ugly that ship looks.

    Doesn't the winter event start on 12/7/2021, just logged in, no Q, or is it starting when they do their maint patch today?

    The latter. Like every event before.

    Thanks, wasn't thinking straight.

    At a particular time, not at beginning of calendar day in whatever time zone.

    If you stack the Saturn class on top of the Eisenberg class, it really does make the shape of a toilet. Maybe that is where the designer was when they got the inspiration for these new ships?

    Dear Devs: I enjoyed the Legacy of Romulus expansion much more than the Delta Rising expansion. .

    That top picture explains the design, it was obviously built by the Snowconian :lol:

    Still loving the Walker Light Exploration Cruiser and the Constitution Miracle Worker Flight Deck Carrier, flying the beezus out of them.
