    Oooo... The Hoover Class is coming... Though, I have to wonder.... It is supposed to look like a backwards flying Millennium Falcon?

    To those who said they gave up on the Romulan faction especially the Romulan ships, I told you so. They were working on the Romulan and Jem'Hadar ships, they just have limited resources and are not Blizzard or EA. Thanks. :)

    So the next ship release will be Temporal spec. Interesting...

    No... looks more like a 25th Century Hoover class.

    We'll know more as we get closer to the actual release. But this... this is a teaser for sure.

    Also provided a pretty plausible in universe lore reason. Infrastructure building in the Republic. But now... now they can start building new ships again.

    Still... expecting more complaints because reasons. Usually always something that comes up.

    Not thrilled. It may be heaven for some, but not for me.
    I'll skip these.
    This program, though reasonably normal at times, seems to have a strong affinity to classes belonging to the Cat 2.0 program. Questerius 2.7 will break down on occasion, resulting in garbage and nonsense messages whenever it occurs. Usually a hard reboot or pulling the plug solves the problem when that happens.

    Don't think is a Hoover class, i think is the 2409 version of the Engle Class, is facing down on the picture, the warp reactor is the circle on the top..

    If the Starfleet ship isn't a Science ship with a Discovery skin, I'm not interested. The game is severely lacking in those, with the only ones currently available being a single Starfleet lockbox ship and a pair of non-Starfleet ships that are also Lockbox/Event ships.

    I think people is looking the other way, it's not pointing up, the saucer is down, i could be mistaken, of course, but i see an entire different ship than you.. :lol:

    I'm hoping it is the Hoover-class as I think it would be a fine addition to the Fed line-up. The Klingon ship is also, like the Hoover, already in-game as one of two different ships named Chargh. The Dominion & the Romulan ships look fine as well. This speculation is just off of the background pic though so who knows what they'll be. I wonder if they'll be inclusively available or only more gambling fodder? Dang, how long has it been for a new Romulan ship?

    I'm thinking this is the scinence ship. It's sad that with all the peace that the Federation got to enjoy before the 'Battle of the Binary Stars', there would have been more science ships available.

    Just saying.

    To me it looks like an interim design between the Miranda and the Hoover,either way they will be escorts/ sci-destroyer or light cruisers at a guess.

    Will this finally be the Romulan cruiser with a warp core that I have been wanting forever?

    Thank you, Mr. Marrone and Co. :smiley:

    I can't wait to see the photos and write-up for the ships.

    From the descriptive text in the blog ("The ACSDB expect these ships to become indispensable border patrol and exploration units" ), I'd wager they'll be Destroyer-Sci hybrids.

    Took long enough for a single Romulan ship!

    It better be a science warbird or sci-destroyer transformer to match that temporal seating. Already like the way it looks, and disliking the other 3 designs.

    Feds and KDF are doomed with Disco styling from now on it seems.

    Lets not forget the engle is already in game as a lock box ship. its clearly the Hoover. the saucer shape is a dead give away. Im guessing these will be our t6 patrol escorts.

    So glad i`m not the only one who picked up on Sonja. If any of those ships are "Fearless" class i`ll be heading for another star system.

    In-universe fiction like this is always welcome, I would point out, too, that this also represents an in-universe justification for the wingmen mechanic being cross-pollinated beyond the Vanguard fleet...

    I was thinking it bared some resemblance to the Miranda myself. The Klingon ship seems to look more at home in the Discovery era and the Romulan ship looks TNGish and I like it. The Jem ship is pretty much the detachable carrier support ship. It's not a bad look but it seems a bit stub nosed for a Jem cruiser sized ship.

    But anyway it's nice to see them getting back to representing all the factions in the ship packs. I will definitely get this pack when I can.

    Maybe not the best ships out there, but they are solid, and the console is truly universal, and can be put on other ships.
    I think I will get the pack too…
    Edit: And it is stated, that non-Romulan toons can fly the Warbird - that makes (for now) the only Singularity Core ship for KDF or FED characters (does that mean, that in future all Romulan ships will be open to other factions? My human is dreaming about fully kited T6 Scimitar).
