The ship in the picture certainly looks as if it could be a new form for the Multi-Mission Science ships line.

Edited as was proven correct

    True. But certainly looks possible.

    I agree. It does look like it could be the next evolution of the Vesta class.

    Yeah, that is definitely a next generation Multi-Mission Science Vessel.

    Interesting, looks like a Pathfinder style deflector on it. If it is a T6 Vesta, will it come in a 3 pack, and will the ships have the same specialization seating? I always thought it'd be cool to have separate intel/command/pilot (or temporal) variants.

    And most anniversary events (all 4 of the last ones) had a new ships Megabundle in Zen-Store coming, so they could prepare T6 Vesta pack as a part of it... but what would we get for KDF and Romulans?

    A lot of people have wanted Vesta equivalents for the KDF and Romulans, so maybe that's finally incoming? We'll probably find out in the next week or so.

    Well, it wasn't me, I am totally confident she'd look a bit more happy then.

    Anyway, it's not a confirmation, just speculation. It could be a "fake" ship made by the artist to look Starfleet but still unspecific.

    I wouldn't mind a Tier 6 Vesta, and I certainly would like some 3-pack that has a different spec for each ship, or/and having a cross-faction pack with Romulan and Klingon Vesta equivalents.

    But I have some doubts they'd release a new Tier 6 Science Vessel so soon after the last, unless there has been a recent explosion in Science ship sales.

    OP, good catch. My first thought was an artistic rendition of the Pathfinder, but on closer inspection it is indeed unique. Those warp nacelles to me suggest that's an Engineering variant.

    Also the triangle UFO anniversary ship turns out to be science (!!!) so that's another little surprise that would tie in really well with a T6 Vesta/Rom/KDF pack - RIP Zen if this is all true as I can't say no to Vesta and science and hopefully Rom sci too.

    That's possible... considering how much attention has been given and how many people are currently promoting it, I think that many more players are now realising how fun Science can be.

    Oh wait now I see the pic... hmm. Could just be a T5 Vesta with some small adaptations.

    I guess we'll know in two weeks or less.

    My thoughts are they put a semi-generic Federation ship in the background. Full stop.

    Edit: I take it back. They put way too much effort into painting a weird deflector.

    Still, not where my money would be going. I have plenty of Federation "swans" already. I'z just waiting for T6 Elachi and eventually T6 Tal Shiar adapted.

    We will of course see more T6 revamps in the zeni store over time, but I don't think this is secretly signaling anything.

    Could certainly be wrong though. Not where my money would be going either way. I have plenty of Federation "swans" already. I'z just waiting for T6 Elachi and eventually T6 Tal Shiar adapted.

    It does look like a vesta the back part of the saucer and how it blends with the hull is indicative of the vesta design , even the saucer shape is more vesta then pathfinder the back portion of the saucer is shaped more like a vesta then a pathfinder.

    It is most definitely not a T5 Vesta. The deflector dish is completely different, and the nacelles are of the more modernized, square-ish styles seen on contemporary ships like the Andormeda, Yorktown, and Sutherland classes.

    It's up on the Season 12: Reckoning blog.

    The deflector looks like a Pathfinder's. T6 vibes all around. I hope this isn't just a "wouldn't it be cool tho?" type of concept art.

    Yep. If T6 vesta cryptic will likely get money from me. If T6 vesta with rom and KDF versions, Cryptic will definitely get my money.

    The deflector looks like a Pathfinder's true, but Pathfinder got Aero shuttle thats somewhat visible under the saucer, the one in picture looks more like it would be secondary deflector in that place...
    ... and personally i would like to get my hands on T6 Vesta, and even more on KDF and Romulan counterparts... it would sure be better ship/s than last Science bundle (especially if they would put aux cannons and hangars in KDF and Rom ships too)...
    Then all i would need more is some special secondary deflector (maybe a 4 piece set - sec defl. + 3 consoles - in the new Reputation?)

    If we're getting a T6 Vesta 3-pack, I hope the KDF get a T6 Gorn Science Vessel 3-pack. :)

    The best thing to do with the aux cannons, I have found, is put them in the recycler. There is already not enough room on a sci ship for 2 and 3 set bonuses and other EQ I would consider worth using.

    It would be murder on the environmental systems trying to clean the smell of brimstone out of the ship's air. And do you know how expensive it is to keep a fire burning in space?
