Speculation for this years anniversary bundle

In a few weeks Cryptic should start revealing the ships that will be in this years bundle, what does everyone expect to see?

Assuming this will be another Legendary Bundle, then based on things the devs have said the ships should have been prominently featured in an episode or movie, and they should also have an existing in-game lineage of at least two ships so that they have stuff to bundle together. Based on that I see these as the possible options:

Prometheus
Inquiry (it could be argued this wasn't prominent enough, but there aren't many other Fed options)
Olympic (if they are able to merge the Daedalus and Nautilus with it, otherwise there's no in-game lineage)
Negh'Var
Mogai (it could be argued this wasn't prominent enough, but it's the only canon Romulan ship that doesn't have a legendary yet)
Jem'Hadar Attack Ship
Jem'Hadar Dreadnought Carrier

If Cryptic decided to make an exception regarding the in-game lineage requirement (they already have with the Legendary JJ and Disco Connies), then there are a few more options:

Universe (it's the only canon Enterprise to not have a Legendary yet)
Vengeance
Einstein (USS Kelvin)
Disco D7
Jem'Hadar Light Battlecruiser

Based on all this, I personally think the bundle will most likely be Prometheus, Negh'Var, Mogai, and the JHAS, though that would not be my preferred selection of ships. It's also entirely possible they will do something different this year though since the list of potential Legendaries is getting a bit short.

    I could see the Mogai, Bortasqu', Negh'var, Bug ship, and maybe a Galor, as legendary ships. But thats really about it.

    There already is a legendary D7 so I doubt the Kelvin one would be too (especially since the Kelvin one is so obscure), more likely it would be folded into the already existing package as an interest booster and that package sold again if anything.

    The Einstein class would be interesting, but probably only be a contender if STO already had the Jupp from the DS9 kitbash thread and possibly the "sitting dog" (Excalibur class) and possibly other ships loosely based on the Saladin class as playable ships, but none of those exist as playable ships.

    The OP's primary list looks likely though.

    I didn't mention the JJ D7 at all, because of how little screentime it had. However, there are already three different Legendary Connies due to them being different sizes, so the existence of the Legendary TOS D7 wouldn't prevent the Disco or JJ D7s from getting a Legendary (though like you said the JJ D7 isn't nearly prominent enough).

    Will we even see on? Last year they only managed 4 ships with a whole bunch of filler and it didn't go ever very well

    I like the sound of an enemies-turned-allies bundle:
    J'H bug ship
    Spoonhead Galor
    Kling Negh'var
    Rom Mogai

    I would buy that bundle.

    There will be some kind of bundle, there always is, though it is possible it wouldn't be Legendary ships. Also, just because the reaction to the 11th Anniversary bundle was negative here and on reddit doesn't mean it didn't sell well, I was slamming it myself but ultimately decided to buy it anyway.

    I think it will be at least 5 mirror ships, maybe 6.. i think they wanted the Guardian to be there too... but as it does not do anything special (just a skin) they let it go to the c-store. My guess is:

    Galaxy
    Intrepid
    Miranda
    Shran
    Nova
    Sabre

    Those are for sure... but maybe more... that would be cool.

    If they do an all Fed bundle (which is what a mirror bundle is) it just means that I can save my money. So part of me hopes that they give me a reason to not spend money.

    It'll almost definitely be a Mirror Bundle. As well as the ships @gaevsman already mentioned, the Enterprise-F (namely the Yorktown class) received a remaster. And Thomas mentioned, in a Livestream, that the ISS Enterprise-F will be making a reappearance in due course.

    Add the recently remastered Mirror Nova, Sabre and Yorktown classes to the list and you have a bundle.

    There is absolutely no question that they'll cash in on that work. Expect Mirror ships with different specializations etc to their 'Prime' counterparts.

    I probably should not make comments when I am tired, I totally missed the "Disco" part and inadvertently lumped it in with the Vengeance and Einstein :lol:

    If it's a mirror bundle they probably won't be Legendary. And mirror is also definitely a possibility, but a much less exciting one that I probably wouldn't be getting.

    I hope it is the mirror bundle then I wont waste any money. I got tired of purchasing the same ship over and over just a little bit different. But yeah maybe we get a Legendary Galor and other Alien ships but I doubt it.
    C-Store Inc. is still looking for active members on the fed side. If you don't have a fleet feel free to contact me in game @stegi.

    Agreed.

    I wouldn't be surprised if we got a mirror (either legendary or not) bundle indeed. But I wouldn't be impressed either if it turned out to be true.

    I already own the 10th anniversary pack and I'm not interested in getting some small variations of existing ships either.

    Maybe it'll be a species-themed pack.

    Legendary Kumari, Legendary D'Kyr, Legendary Xindi ships (4), Tellarite and Caitian ships. Not all of them have lower tier versions, but that's a criterion they invented afterwards anyway (we have a legendary Crossfield after all).

    Such a pack would bring great diversity and add something for fans of many different species. Even if they only limited the pack to the founding species.

    Or leave out species like the Xindi to include a Gorn and Cardassian design for example.

    I don't think the Negh'var would be a valid option - as they'd then have to either sell the Bortasq flagship alone, or find some other Klingon ship to go along into the legendary field. I do think it's more viable to suspect that we will be getting a Klingon "flagship bundle", much similar to the D'deridex & Scimitar one from the Romulans...

    We already know it's going to be a Fed + Rom hybrid Science ship, we just don't know what it's gonna look like or what kind of seating it will have.

    I'm honestly not sure the Bortasqu will ever get a Legendary at this point. If they had done a big Klingon bundle on par with the 10th anniversary bundle last year then it would have been guaranteed for parity, but since that didn't happen it's kinda hard to justify because it's not a Canon design (the Odyssey was an exception only because it is an Enterprise). Don't get me wrong, I want it to get a Legendary, I just don't think it's going to happen anymore.

    Many however greatly enjoyed the Klingon / Romulan variation, so hopefully the next is just as great!

    https://www.arcgames.com/en/games/star-trek-online/news/detail/11497353

    Also as @reyan01 stated we did see this, could be perhaps a CSTORE (normal) bundle, yet given the Anniversary coming perhaps Legendary Mirror Bundle. Will the Enterprise F be added to the Mirror Legendary Bundle, that likely drive the cost up a bit.

    I wished they'd consider a moderate Starter Pack for several Legendary Bundles that included at least 2 Ships, that could then be discounted off one of the larger packs when upgrade. They tried that for Gamma, yet the Starter entry price was too low to encourage too many more to go all the way.

    If Fed themed? A Legendary Akira, Constellation, Nebula and Prometheus. All of which have a few variants in game, but are a bit lacking at T-6. Although I suspect that the Akira, nebula and Constellation Cryptic may just opt for standalone "bundles" with add on stuff.

    If Mixed? Cardassian Galor, Jem'Hadar Bug, Romulan Mogai, Ferengi Marauder.

    That is what I am hoping for, especially if it is science spearhead type instead of a traditional science ship layout since they are almost nonexistent in the game so far. There has not been much in the way of new singularity core ships lately either, so if it is singularity powered it would be even better (yes, I am one of those weird people who like those cores).

    F*** NO!
    That would utterly ruin a Science Vessel.

    How so? It does not ruin the Surhuelh or the Caprimul, you just have to take the core's idiosyncrasies into account like you do with any singularity cored ship when making the build and flying it.

    No chance of the Olympic, considering the anniversary ship is 99% likely to be an alliance science ship.
    My money is on a JH/Cardi bundle either a bug / capital ship or Galor / Keldon, or a mix. that's assuming it's a multi-ship bundle. for single ships, Bug, Galor, D'Kora. for a everybody gets one (Except the JH) a legendary Dyson Destroyer bundle
