    Well, hopefully we get a announcement on tomorrows Ten-Foward. If we do, means the ship will be one week away from launching from the shipyards.

    Keep your fingers, toes and other appendages crossed captains :)

    Loathe as I am to be cynical about this, I'm not hopeful on that matter.

    Unless the pre-stream announcement (on Bookface etc) states something like "announcement regarding new ship" I'm not going to get my hopes up.

    I like the looks of the Terran version of the Nova. I hope it is released as an option when the T6 Nova comes out. I was thinking of making another mirror universe themed alt and the mirror Nova would fit well with the theme I have in mind.

    Nitpick that I wondered if anyone else agrees with or not? The starship name label on the aft of the Nova/Rhode Island looks, IMO, that it should be flipped. To be read more easily when viewing the starship that way?

    You mean this?

    To be honest, I think its meant to be like that - I tihnk it's intended to be what you see if you were looking out of the interior windows/viewports behind the lettering

    it should be the other way. showing so that others outside of the ship can see it, not those inside.
    meh

    Hm - the thing is, that's exactly how it appears on Rob Bonchune's (the guy who made the USS Rhode Island for 'Endgame') model:

    gotcha, but you dont see the ones on the saucer facing the people inside do you? its meant so others can see the ID and name, not people inside the ship. one would hope anyone on board, less visitors, would know the call sign and name of the ship they were on. :wink:

    I get your point - but anyone approaching the ship from the aft will see the ID/call sign on the nacelles, since they're displayed on the top and bottom of both of them:

    To be honest I'd have assumed they'd announce a ship like this with a Monday or Tuesday Dev blog rather than during a Livestream. That way they can 'show off' playing the ship during the Livestream.

    New ship blogs usually come out the Friday before, so if it's releasing next week I'd expect to see something tomorrow.

    Well, guess we'll have to wait and see. In the meantime am continuing to enjoy the remastered model.

    Couldn't agree more - although "finally" is the right word there too! It is difficult to forget how long the ship was ignored before we reached this point.

    And no idea why they commissioned Tobias Richter for this one but I'm glad they did - his work on this ship is phenomenal!

    NICE work on the screenshots, Reyan. Well done.
    You are using the default SS command that renders them in PNG without the HUD?

    I use that for pretty SS, but sometimes I need the UI, like when I want to take a shot of my trays before setting up a new ship, so my config file includes the line -

    F12 "screenshot_ui_jpg"

    That way I have a choice to use PrintScreen for PNG without UI, or F12 for JPG format with UI

    Yeah - usually just alter the renderscale for a better resolution and use Printscreen to be honest.

    Seems the remastered Guardian jumped the queue:

    Which all but confirms that the T6 Nova won't happen this month.

    Also a new Saber class model on Tribble:

    Yeah, I get the feeling - and I am highly confident about it - they're going to be bundling up the T6 Nova with the T6 Saber, like the Miranda and Oberth.

    And I fully expect that bundle before Black Friday at best, Christmas at the absolute latest.​​

    Yeah - you're very likely right. Definitely does seem that way.

    So the wait continues. Still, whilst am mildly disappointed I am at least grateful that I can enjoy the remastered Nova model regardless of its tier.

    That's probably a safe bet. Maybe with the Obena (Lower Deck-celsior) at some point, too?

    Obena with the T6 Nova, and Saber? Would be a nice addition. The Nova is now in Lower Decks...might see variants of it in the future too.

    Referring back to your post again, although it means waiting I guess the advantage would be a reduced price. Although would rather see it sooner than Black Friday, I guess - having waited almost eight years for the Nova to get any sort of attention - waiting a little longer for a T6 variant isn't that painful.

    After what they did with the Parliament class, I would be genuinely surprised of the Obena was anything other than lockbox/promo. I think a Saber/Nova bundle is far more likely

    Works for me, really just want the Nova, but I'll take the Saber too. The Obena would have been a nice addition, but you are probably right about them turning it into a lockbox/promo ship.

    given cryptic's pattern of behavior, i would say its pretty much a certainty that the Obena will end up in the lock/promo box.​​

    Probably. I mean, they almost definitely can't make it an optional skin for the Excelsior line of ships as it has been outright confirmed that it's bigger.
