    Given the size and capabilities of the Nova class, even holding out against an intrepid class on the Voyager episode 'Equinox' I think it would be a damn decent space PvP ship. 5 front slots for weapons 3 rear and maybe some kind of secret agent sabotage hologram device to use against opponents. Since this class of ship was in many Star Trek episodes I am surprised it isn't at the very least, a lockbox ship or Lobi store ship.

    There is going to have to be a shakeup with weapon slots. The Franklin was just released with five front, three rear and you can't really argue with having that many. I love my Voth timeship and my Pathfinder...but the favourites are being left behind. All ships really need to start being made equal and if we get a Nova, it needs a great arrangement.

    The Franklin has eight weapons slots because it is not a science ship (which sacrifice some weapon slots for secondary deflector) and it also gave up improved raider flanking (it just has standard raider flanking) which meant that all eight slots were available for regular weapons instead of special systems taking any. It is not something that breaks the rules though it may push against them a bit.

    The only way the Nova/Rhode Island T6 could have more weapons slots than a scout would be if it has a transform mechanic like the Luna to represent the difference between the two subclasses that appeared on the show, with the secondary deflector swapping the active spot with some of the weapon slots.

    What I'm saying is the Franklin has one more weapon slots than pretty much all the other ships. The Nova should keeps its Secondary, but have an additional weapon slot. It's not fair that the Franklin has eight, when at most, most ships have seven and a Sci would only have six. A T6 Nova, with Deflector and one more weapon...that would be fair for a brand spanking new ship, right out of the shipyard.

    i am convinced they believe that the ship wont sell because in their minds it would be a regular 3/3 science vessel, but a 4/2 Science Pilot Ship with pilot maneuvers has NEVER been built before. It would be a brand new ship design.

    Yeah, but while it's true that it exist, it's still not a C-Store ship.
    I think a ship with similar specs would sell well, especially because it would be account unlocked.

    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.

    Well, I guess it did appear in that Kelvin Timeline themed 'Mudds' bundle, but yeah - its an expensive ship regardless of how it is obtained.

    And have to admit, whilst would be more than happy with a Nova class given Pilot BOFF seats I really don't care which specialization it'd have - it's the model remaster I've always been most desperate to see.

    I'm not going to lie - whilst am glad the T6 Oberth fans got their wish, I still resent the fact that the Oberth was given the T6 treatment before the Nova. Because Devs should not claim that they "know it's wanted", and run polls like these if they don't intend to DO anything with that knowledge:
    21st October 2017
    T6 Vor'cha
    27.8%

    T6 Nova
    30.8%


    T6 Oberth
    12.9%

    T6 Ambassador
    28.5%

    442 votes·Final results
    (Note that the only ship they have NOT made from that poll is the ship that won.)

    27th January 2021:
    T6 Oberth
    25.3%

    T6 Typhoon
    18.8%

    T6 Nova
    34.9%


    Something else!
    21%

    928 votes·Final results
    (Note that the Oberth and 'something else' were given priority despite the fact that the Nova won this poll with a 10% majority)

    Ha! Yeah, no C-Store ship. And likely never will be. It will be available as claimable prize from current event campaign, though (at 3500 points). I got one the old-fashioned way (aka, by paying thru my nose), but it's the best Sci ship ingame, IMHO, especially since it behaves like a Pilot escort, maneouvres and agility-wise.

    if they don't intend to DO anything with that knowledge.

    oh, im with you mate. i just think the thing looks unrefined as compared to other ship models. that connection, kitbash, or whatever you want to call it, sucks azz and i needed to say it.

    again, ymmv on the looks or how it was pieced together.

    as for the nova, as you and i exchanged posts, i think by end of year it will be here. however, i will admit my good feeling is waning as time goes on.

    Sadly, eight years of waiting, false hope, empty claims from the Devs/CM, discussion pertaining what it could be if they ever made it in threads on the forum/Social media, ignored polls and watching almost every other ship receive two model remasters have taught me not to get my hopes up.

    I'll believe it when I see it - and as ungrateful as it may sound, when it does finally happen I'll always be wondering why the hell it took them so long!

    Personally, I have my eye on the Kelvin D4, as it had such a great wing animation, last time I saw it. :p But yeah, even though they said latest ships wouldn't be included, there's still some very good ones in there. I will check out the D7 too. I have the Legendary one, but it's not MW (so at least 1 console less).

    The previous one might have remained active if not for the CM making a (very rare) appearance on the forum to note how "dripping with sarcasm" he felt the OP of that thread was, and to explain why they've ignored the Nova, and over seven years of requests for it, for so long.

    However, it also didn't help that some of what he was responding to was a result of the 'which ship would you like to see next' poll he posted in January and that fact that it quite quickly became clear that, despite their standard template claims to the contrary, they didn't really have any interest in the results. Which is exactly what happened with the 2017 poll.

    I mean, at this point... is it really surprising?
    They say one thing and then do something that completely negates what they've just said. Or vice versa.

    All their talks about metrics and how ships are choosen to be made, and then they add stuff like the New Orleans, which we've seen for... what, 5 seconds? In a damned debries field? What was the point of making it?
    Some obvious questions: how well did it actually sell? Of the people that didn't buy it as an individual ship, how many are actually flying it, as opposed to those that are flying the other ships in the two relative bundles?
    More importantly: why would the metrics say that a ship that we've barely seen would have sold well? HOW can they say that?

    Given the size and capabilities of the Nova class, even holding out against an intrepid class on the Voyager episode 'Equinox' I think it would be a damn decent space PvP ship. 5 front slots for weapons 3 rear and maybe some kind of secret agent sabotage hologram device to use against opponents. Since this class of ship was in many Star Trek episodes I am surprised it isn't at the very least, a lockbox ship or Lobi store ship.

    There is going to have to be a shakeup with weapon slots. The Franklin was just released with five front, three rear and you can't really argue with having that many. I love my Voth timeship and my Pathfinder...but the favourites are being left behind. All ships really need to start being made equal and if we get a Nova, it needs a great arrangement.

    The Franklin has eight weapons slots because it is not a science ship (which sacrifice some weapon slots for secondary deflector) and it also gave up improved raider flanking (it just has standard raider flanking) which meant that all eight slots were available for regular weapons instead of special systems taking any. It is not something that breaks the rules though it may push against them a bit.

    The only way the Nova/Rhode Island T6 could have more weapons slots than a scout would be if it has a transform mechanic like the Luna to represent the difference between the two subclasses that appeared on the show, with the secondary deflector swapping the active spot with some of the weapon slots.

    What I'm saying is the Franklin has one more weapon slots than pretty much all the other ships. The Nova should keeps its Secondary, but have an additional weapon slot. It's not fair that the Franklin has eight, when at most, most ships have seven and a Sci would only have six. A T6 Nova, with Deflector and one more weapon...that would be fair for a brand spanking new ship, right out of the shipyard.

    There's actually a lot of ships that have 8 weapon slots. Some of them also have one or two hangars.

    That's why I prefaced my question with "They say one thing and then do something that completely negates what they've just said. Or vice versa."
    It seems obvious that personal preference is a thing, and has been a thing for quite a long while now, no matter how much they speak about "metrics" and "not doing background ships" and "what people on these forums says will sell doesn't actually sell".

    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.

    Thomas posted on Twitter about having remastered the Pathfinder class. This prompted someone to reply with this:


    and Thomas responded with this:


    'Stay tuned' means literally nothing, like everything else they've said about it.​​
    Agreed - talk is cheap and I refuse to let myself get my hopes up where this ship is concerned. I'll only believe it when I see it.

    And further to this, since we're back to completely useless non-replies on the matter like:
    "Someone asked about the Nova. Always a chance for a new Nova"
    (from the livestream on 25th August - and someone always asks about the Nova!)

    I'd say I am right to not get my hopes up.

    Like there's always a chance for an epic phoenix prize pack.

    Something about outer space that gives people endless hope in anything no matter how unlikely - surprised marketers haven't exploited this more beyond gaming.


    While looking at the Nova/Rhode Island 3D printed models, came across https://memory-beta.fandom.com/wiki/Rhode_Island_class which makes STO look like some awful old game based on how terrible the in-game skins are. This wouldn't usually be a big deal, except for the ship's importance to a relatively modern story arc, in a game where story quests are a big focus.

    Seriously, the USS Solstice from ST: Legacy looks better than the Nova model we have in STO.

    Honestly, at this point, I think we should just give up on this. They've seen for years that a top-tier Nova class is something wanted by the community, and that people would buy iut. Yet they manage to keep churning out stuff that nobody even asks for, and it sells. If what people don't ask for sells, then certainly what they DO ask for will sell as well...

    Just like people can ask for bugged systems to be fixed and their idea of fixing them is to remove them and declare the discussion thereof to be FCT fodder.

    They want our money, but they don't want to give us what we say we want to spend our money on. And yety we still spend money.

    This thread has become a joke.It's a dead horse that people insist on dragging out and beating some more... What is the point at this stage.?

    It's on Cryptic's to do list? It's been there for quite a while, with no real sign that they are getting any closer to doing it. What category on the list do they have it under? Most likely the "let's string them along" category.

    Us: "You should make a top-tier Nova"
    Cryptic: "NO!"
    Us: "But why?"
    Cryptic: "Because you wish it..."
    Cryptic Studios CAN'T
    because
    Perfect World Entertainment WON'T
