T6 Federation Ship Voting (revised)

2

Comments

  • waywardwandererwaywardwanderer Member Posts: 17 Arc User
    I've put in a genuine "other" vote because there's one ship I'd love to see in-game:

    The Tamarian ship, from the ST:TNG episode "Darmok"

    In the episode, the ship is on-par with the Enterprise-D for firepower and general capabilities, and there's no reason to think the Children of Tama haven't kept advancing in the last 30+ years. According to the "Path to 2409" lore, the Tamarians joined the Federation about 15 years ago along with the Bajorans, so they have every incentive to contribute to the common defense like the Caitians, Vulcans, and Andorians have done in the past (especially in the wake of the Iconian War.) The general role of the ship is left undefined in the episode (it seemed like something similar to a cruiser, but nothing definite there), so it could work for whatever is needed most.

    Plus, and this is my preference, I really like the look of the ship.

    Torn between Star Cruiser and Nova. Eventually decided for the Nova, since I like to fly science vessels the most.

    Why this specific selection of ships?

    Voting "other" because: Nebula.​​
    Based mostly off of other discussions recently, mainly one this morning that included mention of an "official" interest in what everybody most wanted to see. Nebula has gotten a few votes as "Other" so far. I can't bring myself to recreate the Poll again just for that, but I can try to go through later and specifically count up the called out Nebula votes and add them as a note to the poll text. That seem fair?
    Maybe a running tally of write-ins?

    My vote is for a T6 Assault Cruiser. It was around when the game first launched and it's the most recent Prime Universe Enterprise - this has to pull some weight in terms of players and money. Second, we have the three different skins for the free Assault Cruiser; Sovereign, Noble, and Majestic; plus the C-Store version; the Regent; and a fleet version; the Imperial. Add along to that list the Mirror Version some of us have. That a total of six different skins, meaning lots of time invested into just this one ship. We all know that Cryptic doesn't have too much time/money into designing a new skin for a ship, and the Assault Cruiser has shown how many times the Developers have continued to keep this ship in the forefront of Starfleet's arsenal. It needs to stay. Some might say that it needs to be upgraded just to stay with the pack, but I think it needs to be upgrade so Crpytic's longest lasting design/class/type doesn't die abandoned.

    That all being said, you could make the same case for the Star Cruiser, the Science version of the Assault Cruiser. It's been in the game just as long as the Assault Cruiser and if not already abandoned. Back when Tier 5 was just starting out, the Assault Cruiser got the upgrade while the Star Cruiser got left behind. Personally, I love the design, but I don't like how it's a Science Cruiser. On my first character for the game, I used the Mirror Star Cruiser as his ship for sometime till I upgraded to the Oddy. I love the design (not to mentioned the boff seating), but it needs an upgrade so more people can use it. Having more experience in the game, people are starting to tank more and more. A Cruiser with high Eng. and Sci. abilities would be loved by many people, and might be used to jump star a full Strategist specialization if Cryptic wants to go that route.

    Both of those, however, are true. The Assault Cruiser needs it because it's a famous Enterprise and the Star Cruiser needs it because people love this design, and we all know Cryptic's design doesn't fly with many people. I think it would appease many people if both of these ships are sold in a bundle, the first multi-ship bundle. For the cost of 4500 Zen (the mid-point of one ship and two for full price), you could buy two separate ships. Given one is a science version of the other and vice versa one is the tactical version of the other, both of these ships are very close to each other design and stats wise. It would make sense for both ships to be sold together.

    *I put my vote for the Assault Cruiser because when I was first writing this out it was for the Assault Cruiser, but as I typed away I found that both of the ships are virtually the same. I'm still keeping my vote for the Assault Cruiser, but both ships need them*

    Other: +1 for the Nebula
  • kronin#4685 kronin Member Posts: 325 Arc User
    "Other", because of the Miranda. However, the Nebula is an excellent choice because of the ship's intended purpose. The upper deck modules were interchangeable so that any given Nebula ship could easily be refitted for different missions and duties. So, if they are going to make a T6 Nebula, they should make three different versions, all with different deck modules. They could do more, but I say three because you'd have science, escort and cruiser. Other Star Trek games that offer the Nebula only offer one version of what is supposed to be a modular ship.

    Thought I'd love an T6 Assault Cruiser, a T6 nebula with different sub-versions I'd like for the sake of the community.

    Sovereign please. She is my waifu of fed ships. Like I said in the previous poll, I would also like to see a t6 Kumari and would settle for a single ship instead of another 3-pack. If I had to pick an honorable mention for a third choice then it'd be Vesta.

    I would probably roll a Fed character to fly a decent Miranda. Or just sit back and enjoy a universe suddenly choked with T6 U.S.S. Reliants

    You know, its gotten to the point that every time I think about how we STILL don't have a T6 Sovereign, but we do have a T6 of the Excelsior, I want to slam my head on the desk. Do they seriously not want our money that bad?
  • kekvinkekvin Member Posts: 633 Arc User
    Yet the excaliber has no t5 or t6 varient. Its needed and wanted badly. Nova and excaliber should b the next 2 released

    Won't come as any surprise to most that my vote goes to the Nova/Rhode Island.

    And as unpopular an opinion as this may be, I think that it needs priority over the Sovereign. The Assault Cruiser already received attention once - the Regent. And whilst I know the Regent wasn't to everyone's taste, the fact is that the Sovereign benefitted from the changes and new consoles that came with it.

    The Nova/Rhode Island has had the exact same basic model from day one. As much as I love the little ship, the model hasn't stood the test of time terribly well and has always been inaccurate (the most obvious inaccuracy being that it is supposed to have an intrepid-class style flat deflector dish). It looks outdated next to the newer models and it really does need attention.

    I was surprised that they didn't do anything with the model when Garret Wang was doing voice-work and the USS Rhode Island became a more prominent in-game ship. I really do hope that it gets the attention it deserves in due course.

    I support your reasoning, however all of this is true for the Nebula as well. The Nova at least has a type-6 refit in the Rhode Island, the Nebula has nothing - no improved base model (Galaxy revamp would have been the moment to do it), nor a refit of any kind. No type-6 material still.​​

    I'm guessing CBS' ban on end-game Constitution applies to end-game Constitution-with-modern-paint-job as well.

    @angrytarg No the Rhode Island does not. The Rhode Island use is the same tier 2 model, simply NPC buffed for the missions you see her in.

    Indeed, I stand corrected. I assumed the refit comes with the hull material pig-27.gif​​
