    For the same reason people do it not only with other things in STO, but in other games, other aspects of life. etc. etc.

    In many ways, its emotionally, and psychologically, easier for people to keep persisting at something, even after its long since stopped being useful to do so, because not doing so ends up creating the feeling of giving up entirely. Even if that isn't the case.

    This unfortunately also makes it very easy to become convinced that not getting the thing you want must be the result of some elaborate plot, or sheer maleficence, rather then simply due to natural reasons. With the plots and maleficence getting more severe as time goes on because that becomes the only way to justify why it still hasn't happened after an increasing length of time.

    Considering that the Nova design was once one of the Candidates for the Defiant i think it would be interesting if a Tier 6 Nova was a warship with a secondary deflector.
    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.

    Sadly that is the sense I am getting from this thread. There have already been a number of comments i get the sense of "conspiracy to intentionally not give us what we want" vibes from.

    I say this absolute respect toward your comments, but if you could kindly point me at any post or comment that gives us a timescale I'd be grateful. I'll also note that I am by no means the only player who wants this.

    P.s: "Eventually", "soon" and other such generic/vague non-responses don't count.

    I'm going to be brutally honest: I don't care one bit for the Nova. I already have, and use, all the Science ships I want... and yet, I'm very much advocating for a T6 Nova because people clearly have an interest in it.

    The 2017 poll was a shameful disgrace, in my opinion, and it made absolutely no sense for it to be ignored like it was.

    I don't think people are wrong in keeping this debate alive, even less so exactly because "they know there's interest" but they have so far given ZERO reasons as to why a T6 Nova - or at the very least, a visual revamp of the T5 - can't be made.

    Vague promises of "soon" means absolutely nothing so, if they have no intention of making it, they should just come out and say it. But they won't, because that's not their MO.

    - quelli che sono talmente imbesuiti da credere a qualunque cosa i dev dicano, perfino che la luna è fatta di formaggio... e vanno sul forum a trollare;
    - quelli che credono a quello a cui è giusto credere, sono d'accordo con quello con cui è giusto essere d'accordo e sono critici con quello che non va;

    Ai giocatori dei primi due tipi, gratis in omaggio un bello specchio lucente su cui arrampicarsi. E una mazzata in testa per la loro poca intelligenza e compassione verso gli altri giocatori che non la pensano come loro.
    Agli appartenenti al terzo tipo, invece, dico grazie. Anche se non sempre si riesce a mantenere la calma, siete quelli per cui vale la pena incazzarsi.

    Just taking this break from my STO Forum Break to ad my voice to those who want.

    Considering that sci ships top the DPS Meta by now I have lost any reasons not to want this ship. :D

    It's "been coming" for YEARS now. There comes a point where the devs saying it's coming eventually and soon (tm) stops to mean anything. So until they have an actual release date...yeah it's not coming.

    I have no desire for a T6 Nova, not my brand of cigar. With that said I fear that the only hope I have of a T6 Oberth is going to if it is bundled at a high price with a T6 Nova.

    I got a question and this seems like the thread to ask it. What’s the obsession with a T6 Nova? I’ve seen countless posts about it and can’t seem to figure out why so many people want one. Is it a iconic ship that needs to be added like the Enterprise or Defiant? Is it strictly a canonical thing? I would think that, with such a demand for it, the devs would’ve put one in game a long time ago knowing it would turn a profit (especially if it’s bundled). Someone clue me in please?

    The Dev's have said repeatedly that every ship will get a T6 version. That's all I need to know. The closest ship to the Nova is the Intrepid, why can't you just fly that for now? The stats are not that far off, and the T6 Nova will get an extra BO power, some more subsystems power, but the difference will be neglegible. The Nova looks quite smart with the Platinum shield btw.

If you were a Klingon you'd be killed on the spot, but lucky for you.....you WERE in Starfleet. Let's see how New Zealand Penal Colony suits you." Adm A. Necheyev.

    They have been saying that for over six years. I have NO reason to beleive them, where this ship is concerned, anymore.

    It isn't just about stats etc - my primary issue with the Nova/Rhode Island is the awful quality of the model - see the pictures I posted in my OP for what the class should/could look like compared to the outdated, canon inaccurate, model (which dates back to the game's Beta) we still have. It looks like something from a Playstation One game and with so many of STO's canon ships having received TWO quality passes it seems completely unreasonable that the Nova can't even get its first!

    And I don't fly the Intrepid on my main char for one, good, reason: the Intrepid isn't my favourite class of Starship. I do own the Legendary Intrepid, and I do use it on another of my chars. Fair to that that outperforms my old Rhode Island in every respect. But as great as it is, it isn't my favourite class of Starship.

    And yeah, Platinum shield looks good on it - but I prefer the Discovery Vanity shield since it gives the main deflector an appearance that is close to the correct (canon) appearance.
    Always curious to see what the various vanity shields look like on this particuar ship though.

    In other words, you have no idea and you're just believing it because "they have repeatedly" said so. Yeah, right.

    As Reyan said: it doesn't count.

    As I said, I don't care for the Nova but even I can see why this question is, quite frankly, stupid: because the Intrepid is NOT the Nova. Why shouldn't they be able to fly the ship they want?
    Especially since you have absolutely no idea how a T6 Nova will be, so claims of "the difference will be negligible" are useless, at best.

    Everyone has their favorite ships, and wants to fly their favorite ship. For some, it's about DPS and flying whatever does the most damage. Some people want the connection to the shows and movies. And for others, it's about aesthetics. Personally, I fell head over heels for the Nova when it made its debut in Equinox because it was such a sleek, aggressive looking little ship. It has a hard edge to it that the Intrepid class lacks, which made for a nice contrast with Voyager when the two ships were on screen. I don't think anyone asking for a T6 Nova expects it to be the top of the line, must have ship of the moment when it's released. We just want to fly the ship we love, for one reason or another.

    Absolutely! I care VERY little about the specifics such as BOFF layout/Console layout/Specialisation (though do lean toward Miracle Worker as a preference) - I, personally, just want to see the model get an update; it has never been canon accurate, it dates back to Beta and it just looks terrible next to any of the countless ships that have received quality passes.

    Seriously - one of my biggest issues with this whole situation is that this ship has been ignored again and again and again, whilst others get TWO quality passes.

    Yes, we get it, but it's the insinuation that it's a malicious act or malicious omission (verging on criminality) against a demographic of the game attitude that folk are bemused by. There are numerous other ships yet to get the T6 treatment, but you don't see some flag-bearer tearing down the forums everyday about it. It's becoming as tedious as listening to vegans (no offense). :lol:

    The devs have repeated said a LOT of things that ended up not being true for one thing. Like hey the Romulans won't be abandoned...followed by not releasing a Romulan factions ship until over a year later. Yeah not abandoned my TRIBBLE. Than there is the fact that this ship was on it's way for over SIX FRAKING YEARS. How much it will be here eventually do you have to hear before that becomes hallow? Because for Romulan players, that was about a year, Nova fans had to endure that for SIX FRAKING YEARS. Also it's not about a ship having similar stats...it's about the looks. I use my morrigu the most out of all my ships not because the stats are what I want...or even close to what I want...but because I like how the ship looks. I make the stats work for how I wanna play specifically BECAUSE of the ship looks.

    The obsession is nothing special, really. Just imagine you had a favorite canon ship, say the Galaxy Class or Constution CLass. But there is no endgame version of it.

    That's all there is to it. There are people that like this ship. And they see no reason why it shouldn't be in the game, considering all the other ships that are in the game. And there really aren't much more canon ships left. The remainder are mostly ships that we only saw from a far with limited angles or possibly just as wrecks, many of them were clearly kitbashes not intended for closer inspection. The Nova is actually a fully-fledged design that was created for VOY, and was revised for its appearance in the VOY finale, and we saw it get into action.

    The Nova "obsession" is nothing compared to the obsession people had for the Constitution!
    And now we got what - 4 endgame Connies?

    For me, personally. I really like the shape and size of the Nova. It's a cute little ship. And it's a Science Vessel, and I love Science Vessels. So I really would like the option to play it at endgame.

    Wrong.

    Its the fact that they don't listen.
    Its the fact that they demonstrably ignore/disregard player feedback.
    Its the fact that over the past six+ years we've had nothing more than meaningless non-replies like "soon" or "eventually".
    Its the fact that many of the canon ships have had at least one, and in many cases, TWO, quality passes whilst this particuar model can't even get ONE.
    Its the fact that they ran a poll in 2017, which the Nova class won and ignored that too.

    Its the fact that they've acknowledged that they "know we want it" during several livestreams and an interview with Hero Collector and yet after SIX+ years they have done absolutely nothing about it.

    For one, there was a poll several years ago that the devs used to gauge interest in potential T6 ship releases. The Nova class beat out several other ships, such as the Ambassador and Vor'cha, which have since had T6 versions added to the game. Reyan frequently mentions it in these threads, and I think rightfully so. The devs never promised that the poll would be used to set future ship releases, it was just to see where player interest was. However, it is very frustrating that they have a strong indication of the demand for the Nova that they have seemingly ignored for years. Especially when there have been numerous threads on the forums and Reddit, and people bring it up in the devs' livestreams. They've known for years that it's something people want, and they have done nothing about it.

    In a different thread, I put forward the idea that we should probably stop appealing to the STO devs directly and start trying to convince the writers on Lower Decks to have Harry Kim show up in the Rhode Island in an episode. Give the ship a big-damn-heroes moment where it swoops in and rescues the Cerritos. Because all it took was the Titan showing up for two minutes in the season finale of Lower Decks to get the devs to release a T6 Luna with an updated skin. Meanwhile the Nova, which was the centerpiece of a two-part episode, sits on the game's junk heap.

    Its the fact that many of the canon ships have had at least one, and in many cases, TWO, quality passes whilst this particuar model can't even get ONE.
    Its the fact that they ran a poll in 2017, which the Nova class won and ignored that too.

    Its the fact that they've acknowledged that they "know we want it" during several livestreams and an interview with Hero Collector and yet after SIX+ years they have done absolutely nothing about it.

    And that's the tea.

    Not agreeing with someone doesn't give you the right to be an TRIBBLE.

    Ci sono tre tipi di giocatori:
    - quelli a cui non va mai bene niente... e vanno sul forum a trollare;
    - quelli che sono talmente imbesuiti da credere a qualunque cosa i dev dicano, perfino che la luna è fatta di formaggio... e vanno sul forum a trollare;
    - quelli che credono a quello a cui è giusto credere, sono d'accordo con quello con cui è giusto essere d'accordo e sono critici con quello che non va;

    Ai giocatori dei primi due tipi, gratis in omaggio un bello specchio lucente su cui arrampicarsi. E una mazzata in testa per la loro poca intelligenza e compassione verso gli altri giocatori che non la pensano come loro.
    Agli appartenenti al terzo tipo, invece, dico grazie. Anche se non sempre si riesce a mantenere la calma, siete quelli per cui vale la pena incazzarsi.

    I got a question and this seems like the thread to ask it. What’s the obsession with a T6 Nova? I’ve seen countless posts about it and can’t seem to figure out why so many people want one. Is it a iconic ship that needs to be added like the Enterprise or Defiant? Is it strictly a canonical thing? I would think that, with such a demand for it, the devs would’ve put one in game a long time ago knowing it would turn a profit (especially if it’s bundled). Someone clue me in please?
    Everyone has their favorite ships, and wants to fly their favorite ship. For some, it's about DPS and flying whatever does the most damage. Some people want the connection to the shows and movies. And for others, it's about aesthetics. Personally, I fell head over heels for the Nova when it made its debut in Equinox because it was such a sleek, aggressive looking little ship. It has a hard edge to it that the Intrepid class lacks, which made for a nice contrast with Voyager when the two ships were on screen. I don't think anyone asking for a T6 Nova expects it to be the top of the line, must have ship of the moment when it's released. We just want to fly the ship we love, for one reason or another.

    Yes, we get it, but it's the insinuation that it's a malicious act or malicious omission (verging on criminality) against a demographic of the game attitude that folk are bemused by. There are numerous other ships yet to get the T6 treatment, but you don't see some flag-bearer tearing down the forums everyday about it. It's becoming as tedious as listening to vegans (no offense). :lol:
    For one, there was a poll several years ago that the devs used to gauge interest in potential T6 ship releases. The Nova class beat out several other ships, such as the Ambassador and Vor'cha, which have since had T6 versions added to the game. Reyan frequently mentions it in these threads, and I think rightfully so. The devs never promised that the poll would be used to set future ship releases, it was just to see where player interest was. However, it is very frustrating that they have a strong indication of the demand for the Nova that they have seemingly ignored for years. Especially when there have been numerous threads on the forums and Reddit, and people bring it up in the devs' livestreams. They've known for years that it's something people want, and they have done nothing about it.

    In a different thread, I put forward the idea that we should probably stop appealing to the STO devs directly and start trying to convince the writers on Lower Decks to have Harry Kim show up in the Rhode Island in an episode. Give the ship a big-damn-heroes moment where it swoops in and rescues the Cerritos. Because all it took was the Titan showing up for two minutes in the season finale of Lower Decks to get the devs to release a T6 Luna with an updated skin. Meanwhile the Nova, which was the centerpiece of a two-part episode, sits on the game's junk heap.

    Sad thing is, one gets the distinct impression that Garrett Wang would actually be up for reprising his role/making an appearance like that. He still seems very enthusiastic and supportive of Trek-related projects.

    He definitely would be up for that. He's done voice over here in STO and in Voyager: Elite Force. Also fans love seeing old characters in the new shows. Nostalgia and all that.

    YOu might be getting your wish - Rumor has it that they are in the works in giving most T5 ships a T6 variant - sometime in 2021.

    That being said, do not hold your breath for a T6 Nova Class with adequate bridge officer seating.

    Okay - just to be clear, this is NOT in any way, shape or form directed at you personally.....

    The problem is, rumors are just that: Rumors. As have said, we've had non-answers like "eventually" and "Soon(tm)" for over six years now. We are very much at the "I'll beleive it when I see it" stage and have been for a while. Its been too long for me, personally, to place any value in non-answers and vague hearsay.

    As for BOFF seating - I honestly couldn't care less on that front; whatever it ends up with, it'll be possible to make it effective. It is for me, and always has been, more an issue of the awful, canon inaccurate, quality of the model and how desperately it needs receive a quality pass to bring it up to the standards of the majority of STO's ship models.

    They've said that their goal is for every canon ship to be brought up to T6, but I would be genuinely shocked if they did that this year. They've clearly demonstrated that their priority is releasing ships that have appeared more recently on screen, and with 3 currently running shows (and a 4th in the works) that list is only going to get longer over time. Ships like the Nova, Saber, Olympic, Steamrunner, and Oberth are going to get shoved further and further down the list unless by some miracle they make it into one of the four shows.

    They say a lot of things...some of which are not true even. They said they would not abandon the Romulan faction...and that proceeded a to do that for like a year and a half. Which mind you is nothing compared to Reyan's struggle. But all they say are word word word...which mean nothing. They need to show, not tell at this point.

    I hope that if/when the T6 Nova is going to be in the game, Kael send reyan01, the champion for the ship, a heads up.

    Just to say, 'Hey, the ship you've been waiting for is on it's way! :)'
