    As expected. And she's looking good too :D

    But only a couple pics? Come on devs, give us a blog where you show off your work.

    But dat new Negh'tev tho

    I'm hoping we'll get an X.

    As for a Tier 6 Sovereign...that would be next in the cycle so...maybe...Fall? I suppose that would come with a new Vor'cha as well.

    Now I wait patiently for a Bird of prey. Sovereign and Bird of Prey and I'd pretty much be set up.

    BUT MAN. They're going to KILL my dilithium supply at this rate.


    Make it so.

    i also hope for a galaxy x, but please cryptic DON'T do it too soon! please, don't rush that one.
    let all your new specialisation go out, and then choose the rights ones for it.
    i have time, no hurry!
    don't mess it:D

    Yeah already corrected the mistake,meant a phantom not a pathfinder,but still its hard to believe that such an overrated series like TNG gets this much attention,already got a lot of cruisers to choose from,i mean they just released three different ones and now they get one more?

    Yeah sorry my wallet is staying in my backpocket until i see some equality here...

    all the other cruiser that you can choose from lately are not from tng, i said lately but i think it goes back to what? 2 years? when did the regent come out?
    because after it ( expect the galaxy reboot, but that not really a new ship ) i don't remember a tng era ship to come out, i might be mistaken tho.
    if someone known it, do tell

    Well....overrated to you, the favoruite for others. People are different.
    And no, lol :D, TNG barely gets any attention here. Just notice how there are full Defiant and Voyager interior sets, but no Enterprise-D one. And just notice how the old T5 Galaxy was the most gimped ship in the game. And the bad ship model with many errors.
    This has been a long time comming after years upon years of people bugging Cryptic to do this. I just hope it has some solid, not OP, just solid stats to boot. Give us TNG fans a reason to keep smiling. :D

    They (Cryptic) are currently in the 'Command Spec' mode and that spec comes natural to big ships like the cruisers. Plus they (Cryptic) seem to work on waves and they seem to be on a 'cruiser wave' lately. I remember a time when they only released escorts and people called STO - "Escorts Online". :D
    Yeah sorry my wallet is staying in my backpocket until i see some equality here...

    And that's perfectly fine. Just like I barely buy any escorts and own all of the cruisers. When a ship you like comes, then you'll buy. And if an escort is what you're looking for, it will come very very soon, mark my words. My bet is right after the 'Delta Recruit' event.

    wow, i'm actually pleasantly surprised, this turned out better then i expected.

    if cryptic was a cool guy, all 3 ships would have a d'deridex tier station setup.

    COM eng
    LTC tac
    LTC sci
    LT eng
    ENS uni

    or some kind of variant, like

    galaxy
    COM eng
    LTC eng

    LTC sci
    LT tac
    ENS uni

    negvar
    COM eng

    Yeah, I have to agree - the new big lady has the curves. She's got the look! :D

    Told you that Thomas doing it was a safe bet for a good looking ship. ;)

    Glad to see we are getting yet one more cruiser....didnt they just release 3 different ones?

    So what i am asking myself is where are the escorts??¿¿ Sad and pathetic that our only option at level 60 is ONE yes you read right ONE ship,the Phantom...apart from that we are screwed and pigeonholed into using a slow a$$ ship with an abysmal turn rate...gj Cryptic...so this is the way its going to be?

    Escorts from boxes which are only character bound as opposed to releasing them on the Zen shop so i can use them on ALL my characters...yeah im not happy.

    I don't think you've realized how popular the Galaxy-class is in STO. I think there are far better ships than them, but I see tons of Galaxy, Galaxy-X flying around still. T6 releases of the Galaxy, Negh'Var, D'Deridex is a very smart, money making move. They can't lose on this.

    I've said when DR hit that the devs would release T6 canon ships as time wore on. They followed soon with Pathfinder. They're doing so next with the Galaxy/Negh'Var/D'Deridex. All 3 are popular ships.

    I'm also happy they're doing a D'D because the leaks made no mention of a Romulan version while showing stuff of the Galaxy & Negh'Var.

    All three have been given a 2410 facelift, much like was done for the Pathfinder Class Long Range Science Vessel
    Hopefully this isn't limited to the ships visuals.
    I seriously hope that it gets a decent BOFF and Console Layout, just a visual overhaul would be very very disappointing.


    I would be happy if it would get a pathfinder-like BOFF layout like this:

    Tactical: Lt.
    Engineering: Cmdr., Lt. Cmdr.
    Science/Command: Lt.
    Universal: Lt.
    Consoles: 3, 5, 2

    Although i'm not happy with command BOFF abilities, it is still waaay better than before and finally it promises to be versatile and fun to play.
    Which is everything i ever wished for the GCS in STO

    Hmm, that trait might be interesting. Depending on how much damage it deals and how far the explosion reaches, it might be worth taking RSP3 and turning that COM eng into something somewhat useful. Well, I'm assuming it's going to have a COM eng anyway.

    The Lt Tac is going to be the hybrid Command, since Pathfinder was Lt Eng/Intel, and the T6 Defiant only has a Lt Sci and Eng, so it's seat will probably be Lt Sci/Pilot.

    only complaint is the saucer rim is too 6 foot model thin, there's supposed to be 2 decks there. that causes the rim windows to be more on the bottom, then on the side.

    Trendy mentioned more pics being added in about 15 minutes or so.

    For those interested.

    Her first one she titled Dat Aft.
    DAAAAAMN. Baby looks good from behind and underneath. That's gonna be nice to watch jump to warp.
    Looks like Trendy moved on to the other ships (Negh'Tev got one just now). I'm guessing 2 each.

    Her third one, the Negh'Tev: Maybe you'd prefer something a little fiercer?

    Not going to add any further, but will update a general post in the General Discussion thread.

    The Negh'tev looks even better from that angle.
    only complaint is the saucer rim is too 6 foot model thin, there's supposed to be 2 decks there. that causes the rim windows to be more on the bottom, then on the side.

    So, I got my wish :P

    But seriously man, if that's the only visual complaint, we're doing good here. They just chose one canon representation over the other. Probably trying to keep to Generations.

    I'm just hoping these carry over to the Dreadnaught.

    I am greatly saddened by this unfortunate news. I was hoping at least the components commonly shared by the vessels would be updated.

    But then again, they could just be saving it for the tier 6 Galaxy.

    On the upside, the tier 6 version will actually upgrade all normal Galaxy visuals, so that's cool by itself.

    The Dreadnaught will have her day.

    They haven't mentioned to be updating the interiors. And technically while the saucer is separated we'll be in space view, so we can't be on the battlebridge and see it anyway.

    I actually meant the 'battle bridge dome' on the neck when you saucer sep. On the current galaxy it's smooth with just the phaser strip beneath it.

    And I don't mean I want them to stink. My wallet does. lol.

    But yeah, I'm pretty excited.

    Cmd Eng was always useful between DEM3 and A2SIF3.

    The RSP Explosion trait is probably going to be buffed by PartGens and Aux power, considering it's non-weapon damage (IE Exotic)

    I am kinda happy to hear that they are not going to tackle the Gal-x, or the other dreads it seems for that matter, at the same time as the other Galaxies. Since the Gal-X is not really the same beast as the other Galaxies variants an so should get its own rework an update, with it getting the focus it deserves for what it is an not being thrown in as well as tied to the other Galaxies. Which would than be splitting time investments betwen two types of ships, the galaxies being exploration cruiser while the Gal-x being a dreadnaught, which might end up putting it into the same place it had been in. This could mean we will see it added later in a dreadnaught update with the other dreadnaughts from the roms/KDF,, which i would welcome an enjoy as it gives us the chance to give our thoughts on what should be done with these (atleast the Gal-x) ships to better suit them in the playerbase's eyes. Hope the devs will take that into account even just the fact of looking at what kind of visual updates or alterations the playerbase that uses these dreads would like to see added to them, even if the layouts or other factors are left compltely to the devs.

    While I am very happy to see the ships getting an update, my initial reaction is lukewarm.

    My Rom is a T'varo/Faeht jockey.

    I have all the Battlecruisers, including the command 3pk, T5U Vor'cha, and T5U Kamarang. Just missing the Bortas *cough* and the Neggie, and just not feeling the need for this ship. If it was a Vor'cha or K'vort I would take the plung.

    Now for the Andromeda, if it can use Saucer Seperation, 3 tact abilities, and a LTC Sci, it would be an upgrade from my T5U Fleet Ambassador.

    Now let's get these Andromeda parts on the Nebula and Galaxy-X and a New Orleans class light cruiser/Destroyer released.
    Thanks for the Advanced Light Cruiser, Allied Escort Bundles, Jem-Hadar Light Battlecruiser, and Mek'leth

    Im stoked the model got reworked, even if I might not buy it. If they give it a fail Boff layout like before then I'm saving my money. I'am very happy to see a T6 for each faction this is honestly how they need to release ships from now on, 1 for each, KDF/Rom still need caught up in ships though.

    The trait kinda blows in my book, no where in the shows can I think of any of those 3 ships did anything like that. I would rather have seen a torpedo/beam type trait. Preferably a torpedo one to actually get people using them again.

    I'm crossing my fingers that we get the Venture class necells from AGT/DS9 as costume parts since they redid the negvar.

    Reserving my final judgement on to buy or not till after I see their layouts, honestly I hope they all have a updated fleet D'd layout, then they atleast have flexablity reguardless of hybrid stations.

    New guy in charge for now, you get a thumbs up! And G-X lovers keep your chins up im sure they will do a T-6 of it, and if they fixed the G-R model they will likely fix the G-X.

    Not really liking the new looks so far on any of the three, but that's not why most of us are here. Once again, specs, particularly BOff layout, are going to be the make or break for me. If they're solid, I'm probably picking up the three-pack.

    I'm not sure how the BOff layout will go, as since the three ships have the same console and trait, it's likely they'll have the same BOff layout. Galaxy and Negh'Var are pretty similar, but the current D'Deridex is pretty different. The only thing that would allow both Galaxy/Negh'Var and D'D layouts to fit together is rather out there with several Universal stations, including at least one Lt. Comm.
    In addition, while equipped, this console also provides a passive bonus to max sub-system power levels.

    [raises eyebrow] That could be interesting. 130 Weapon power all the time, possibly higher, depending on how this works (5 being the minimum guess due to most warp cores giving +5 to max subsystem for their variant, but Obelisk is +10). These may not need OSS at all with that...
