    If a 'stats' blog is released later it is probably safe to assume that the ships hit the C-store tomorrow.

    Have to admit, I'll probably buy the Federation pack. The design of the Sojourner class alone pretty much sold it for me (although I'll probably put the original Odyssey saucer on it).

    That's what I hope for. Not too keen on the borts (takes alot more to make me let go of my Qib) but since I am a sucker for those fed space barbies and don't have a single scimi but always played with the thought, I might as well go for that fat pack.

    They already said it's coming on Thursday in the pictures they released on twitter.

    No problem just have to decide between the Sojourner or Yorktown now! I would prefer to see the top of the Sojourner first between I make a final comment on the design.

    I'm not the biggest fan of it, there are a couple of good aspects. But it feels like the designer tried to make it like the majestic class, which doesn't really fit. There's a tiny possibility that I would pick up the tac variant, but in reality i'm just waiting for this to be over with so dil exchange prices will recover like they were before the ships were announced.

    It seems a little bit of the NX can be found here, with how the upper half of the saucer section is sub-divided...

    I Think it looks rather nice also along with the Yorktown. The endeavor would not be bad either if they went back and reworked the noise on it. the top view of it in particular makes it look bad with that expanded dark band and extra-long windows that make it look like the texture is distorted and stretched out.

    Something that would have been fun to see on the sojourner would have been an option to have quad nacelles like the vet and command ships it just makes it look beefier if you wanted.

    Granted I never been a fan of the Odyssey class and variants. This one does help some in the looks. But to me its still horrible for looks.

    I take it back, the Sojourner is ugly as sin. I'm really very upset at that, too. The low angle was so nice, but everything about it from the new angles provided is just terrible.
  • mirrorchaosmirrorchaos Member Posts: 9,817 Arc User
    as long as it is not an oddy class ship thats fine, i have no issue with it. of course if its seen in all its glory and it isnt really that great looking, it wouldnt be the first design cryptic has made as ugly as sin..
    T6 Miranda Hero Ship FTW.

    It's a good thing we can ktibash it with a bunch of other versions, though I dont' think I used a single piece of the Sojourner when I kitbashed my ship. :D
  • samt1996samt1996 Member Posts: 2,856 Arc User
    I fixed it by switching out the nacelles and Pylons to science/tactical respectively.

    I have to admit I'm less sold on it from a top down view as I was the bottom.

    Personally, I like to use the Sojourner stardrive section and then all original Oddy parts. With the upgrades Cryptic made to the original Odyssey model and the Sojorner's slimmer profile and "classic" round deflector it makes the ship look a bit more like a giant Sovereign vaguely melded with a heavily upgraded constitution refit. (The last bit again mostly thanks to the Sojuorner's deflector. I also used type 3 hull material and a very pale blue/silver colored Andromeda pattern to match 23rd century color schemes) I'm sure that's not everyone's cup of tea, but I kind of like the look, and it definitely takes away a lot of the "bloated" feel of the Oddy's original stardrive.

    I'm still tempted to return to my Fleet Arbiter out of a sad and ingrained reliance on better turn rates + cannons (Even though I'm getting kind of bored with it; the Arbiter is efficient but the Flagship consoles are fun :) ), but the look of this ship alone is making it a hard decision. Perhaps I'll keep using it for Episodes and the Undine Battlezone and then use the Arbiter for tougher queues and the Badlands Battlezone. o:)

    On the other hand I can't say I'm too fond of the Sojourner's saucer though, which is one of the reasons I stuck with the original. I usually really like "classic" round saucers, but for some reason the Sojourner's dosen't work for me.
    As Zephram Cochrane once said, "That'll do, pig. That'll do." - April 1st 2015. o:)

    It's a bit more oval than I expected which is fine per se but I like perfectly circular more, I'm sure their just saving it for the T6 Sovvy.

    this will be the first ship bundle I buy. The Sci Oddy is my main flag ship, and it's time for a refit - she's been banged up lately.
  • toivatoiva Member Posts: 3,276 Arc User
    The Sojourner is surprisingly nice when you use Odyssey nacelles and Odyssey/Yorktown pylons. It's not necessarily a ship I'd fly, but it has a classical quality about it. It then becomes the large family friendly galaxy successor. With sleek lines.
    TOIVA, Toi Vaxx, Toia Vix, Toveg, T'vritha, To Vrax: Bring in the Allegiance class.
    Toi'Va, Ti'vath, Toivia, Ty'Vris, Tia Vex, Toi'Virth: Add Tier 6 KDF Carrier and Raider.
    Tae'Va, T'Vaya, To'Var, Tevra, T'Vira, To'Vrak: Give us Asylums for Romulans.

    Looks more like what the Ambassador would look like if it went T6, I'm not too fond of the design though, doesn't fit the Odyssey's theme. I only like the Yorktown since it kept the Odysseys design with that T6 flare to it.

    Ok please forgive me if this is a dumb question but i was wondering if I buy the Tactical Star Cruiser aka Endeavor class starship, would I be able to customize it with the Operations or Science Star Cruiser parts too? Just curious before I make the buy.

    Not unless you buy all three.​​

    Norway and Yeager dammit... I still want my Typhoon and Jupiter though.
    JJ Trek The Kelvin Timeline is just Trek and it's fully canon... get over it. But I still prefer TAR.

    1) Necromancy is not okay. (Don't post in threads that have been inactive for more than a month. Create your own.)
    2) You need to buy all three variants to use two other variant's parts on another.
    3) @pwlaughingtrendy (or any other moderator) please save us from the zombie hoard!
