    I hope i we will be able to customize rear part, otherwise it will stuck in admiralty only. Ugly hybrid. At least Feang have background for its look, this one is just a mess, like putting together Mercedes and Lada.

    I could see using this ship on one of my Klingons, but it probably won't get much use on any of my Feds. Trying to marry two different aesthetic styles isn't an easy thing to do, and I think this is a good looking ship. But as a hybrid, it leans too heavily on the Klingon aspects of its style. Give it a KDF hull material and show it to someone who didn't know the back story, and they would probably think it was a 100% Klingon design. I don't know what I would do to give it a more Federation look. Maybe make the saucer larger in diameter, round out some of the hard angles, or maybe give the pod on the back of the ship more of a Nebula style look than Vor'cha/Negh'var.

    Statwise this looks like a slightly better Europa so that isn't really saying a lot. The trait seems interesting, but the details matter. I still don't understand the point of 5/3 ships with such poor turn rate. Klingon BCs typically have better turn rates that let them actually use their DHCs with some effort. This isn't one of those ships.

    For its looks, I think the skin is particularly off putting. I think the way it emphasizes some parts over others detracts from the overall look.

    I really dislike the saucer. It isn't much of a saucer, more like a flattened sphere from the looks of it, as the diameter seems too small to the height. Also the abruptly cutoff rear outer section is awful. It would look better if it blended in to the neck I think. As others stated a spade or elliptical saucer might work better.

    I'm not fond of the rear spikes either. What are those? Klingon ships don't really have those.

    I think the ship might have looked better with a big Federation style deflector on top of the neck, behind the saucer and the saucer maybe slung lower.

    Where are the cannons? That is typical of KDF ships and if this ship is intended to use them, they should be visible somewhere, though maybe I can't find them.

    Wings don't work well if they are tiny compared to the saucer. Klingon ships have small heads to the wings, while Romulan ships have large saucers and much larger wings. The worst looking Romulan ships look like they have tiny wings for the giant body/head of the ship, like their MW ships or the Kara and similar designs. This ship seems to suffer from that problem due to the Fedesque saucer in front of classic Klingon wings, so I think wider wings would help there, although again a slimmer elliptical or spade saucer might fix that too.

    The other ships are not going to be free, but probably part of a large pack. Presumably the Ross Galaxy is going to be one of those ships.

    It looks not very different from ships like the Mogh and the Vor'ral, aside from the saucer and colors of course.

    It also reminds me of the Earthling-cruiser from Star Control 1 and 2.


    Not a bad design, just not quite special in the end.

    We got this instead of long overdue and requested ships like:
    *T6 Federation Science Vessel (Nova/Aurora/Quasar/Rhode Island)
    T6 Star Cruiser (Sentinel/Emissary/Vanguard/Nomad)
    T6 Reconnaissance Science Vessel (Luna/Polaris/Sol/Comet)
    T6 Deep Space Science (Trident/Oracle/Destiny/Nimbus)
    T6 Research Science Vessel (Olympic/Hope/Horizon)
    --- and this is just the Fed side, it does not count Klingon or Romulan ships
    * won the requested ship poll

    Because those are Federation starships and event ships are multi-faction?
    I mean I know a lot of players forget this isn't just a starfleet game but.. us other factions do actually exist as playable

    So far I like the stats mostly and the 5/3 weapons layout with a good sit layout.

    Looks, ok could had been a lot better, but are decent at least

    I think I may name it A.F.S. Frankenstein though since it has a Fed saucer on a KDF hull

    Not decided on names. Will probably only mastery grind the ship and then remove it from my inventory.
    Unless the customization can bring this design back from the brink of death.
    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.

    It looks better than the engineering bundle does.
    Being a blended ship that would mean that Starfleet crew members will have to learn klingoneze in order to fit in on board LOL.

This isn't one of those ships.

    With all the buffs available now, turn rate hardly matters anymore for using DHC's. I honestly care more about the Inertia Rating for cannons then I do turn rate, and a 5/3 with a 40 inertia makes this ship very usable for DHC. I would actually prefer it statistically over the Europa which also (in my opinion) isn't a bad ship.

    Looks wise.. well, no point arguing there because it's all subjective and personal. But stat wise, while this ship won't be the 'top dog' in the game.. it's certainly not bad. It supports a wide variety of builds and is actually quite versatile.

    I don't mind the look of the ship, I have seen worse. Was not really a fan of the Dyson ships except the Klingon and Romulan variants. Wish the saucer was more circular though. Otherwise, not bad.

    At first glance, it looks like the saucer is too big to connect to the rest of the hull. I suppose the extending parts are meant to be some sort of wing tips. I can understand it, but it still looks like 'not fitting on the hull.'

    I honestly appreciate that the article calls it a Klingon/Federation ship because that thing has no Romulan in it and calling it an "Alliance" battlecruiser like it was made with the ingames Alliances input was some hot BS. Rather them just be upfront like they are about it being a Kling/Fed design

    Don't forget, back in Kirk's day, the Romulans traded cloaking Technology for a large number of Klingon ship to add to their Fleet, so, in a way, any ship with cloaking technology sort of has a Romulan's hand in it.

    So, anyway, I just know that my Klingon Faction Orion will be Captaining one. :smiley:

    I've also heard rumor of a new borg-fed hybrid ship!

    Less like a hybrid and more like someone can't drive. :p

    Absolutely!

    Anyway, I’m usually super critical of Cryptic designs, but I gotta say, I like a lot of this. A couple of saucer options in the ship tailor would be nice though.

    Yeah, if we had an option for a Resolute style of foreward hull/saucer section, it might be an improvement, but I don't hate it as it is.

    And we don't know yet if it doesn't have any seats or contains Ketracel White closets reflecting a Dominion influence on the design. ;)
