Wizkids = unique skin, Vizier = C-store

For anybody confused, here is how it works. If you buy the Wizkids ship, you get this unique skin:

However, a new T6 Sovy is being added to the C-store, and will be named the Vizier class:

As with all normal T6 variants, you will be able to use any other previous sovereign family skins you have unlocked through previous purchases. And while this wont' have the unique "Wizkids" skin, you can of course recolor the standard sovereign skin to get that same blue-ish look.

By the way, this is what happened today: Someone at Cryptic accidentally posted a blog for the Wizkid promotion, with pics of the Vizier. It was quickly taken down, and the pics were fixed. This is why there is some confusion.

    Actually... they're listing the promo as the Vizier. I believe based on the accidential C-store reveal, that locked down the Regent until it was fixed, that the T6 C-store will be the Archon class.

    The other point to make is that there is a three-piece set. The only way to get the special 3-pc ability of battlecloak is to buy the external promotion from Whiz Kids.

    This is a humorous/conspiracy theorist take on it all, but it's like Cryptic shut down all those datamining websites so that they could be the ones that leaked all their stuff. Cutting out the middle man, as it were. It's already happened twice now with this T6 Sovereign, once when the ship was accidentally released on the C-Store, and again now when they posted pictures and stats of the wrong Sovereign variant.

    At this point I'm honestly amazed that we haven't seen or heard any leaked info from them yet regarding the 2016 Winter Event ship. Maybe we'll just have to be patient and see when an error like this pops up again. As a side note though, I really miss those datamining sites. Getting previews of upcoming things to be added to STO was sooo wonderful. It let me plan in advance for releases, instead of having these new lock boxes and ships sprung on us at times when I don't have any money to spend on them... :'(

    That's either the Fleet 1 or Fleet2 material isn't it?

    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.

    Fleet materials have a highly reflective Surface, this one doesnt, kind of look more closer to the free Ambassador class in its colors..

    It's actually a unique paint job that matches the miniature that the ship comes with.

    I did actually find some rumor about the Winter Event ship, and if it will be true, then i think many people will be happy, but.. i'm not puting it here - look for it yourself people...

    Yes the Wizkids version is the Vizier class, the C-store intel ship is the Archon class.
