Star Trek Online Reveals Full Federation Ship List

Star Trek Online Reveals Full Federation Ship List

image

Stand by for nerdgasm! Cryptic has released the full list of Federation ships that will be available in the upcoming MMOG Star Trek Online, which includes science vessels, tactical escort ships and of course the mighty Sovereign class cruiser.

The list of Federation ships is surprisingly meaty, with several based on designs taken from the various Star Trek movies and television series. Their availability to players will be based on rank; the Sovereign class battle cruiser, for instance - better known as the Enterprise E from the Star Trek films First Contact, Insurrection and Nemesis, will be restricted to admirals, while the Excalibur class cruiser, based on the Constitution class ships of the original series, should be popular with lower-ranked officers.

While the full lineup of Federation ships has been revealed, little is yet known about the fleets of other races. Two Klingon ships are listed, the massive Vo'Quv and the much smaller Raptor, while on the Romulan side of the coin the only reference is to a blurry, "classified" recon photo of a top-secret ship acquired by Klingon Intelligence.

As a lapsed Trek fan, I don't find this list particularly exciting; I'm more amped up over the prospect of the no-holds-barred nerdfights it's bound to inspire. "Standard holoemitters for photonic crew?" Set phasers to outrage!

That's quite the selection of ships! that may be the largest collection of Federation ships yet. Really looking forward to this game.

Where can I find this list? I want to read it and act outraged that they haven't included the Nova class, or the Daedalus class, or the Galaxy X, or something.

*Edit* Found the list. <outrage> WHAT!??? no Oberth Class? That has been the backbone of the federation science fleet for years! You've crossed the line </outrage>

It is a large list, but Bridge Commander has more (well if you count mods).

Speaking of mods I think the updated Sovereign class looking one, the NX-9001, isn't as good looking as Bridge commander's Valiant class.

Why haven't I heard of this before now? I'm so ashamed, as a trekkie I should have known about this before it was even decided to happen.

I actually thought i made this game up in a dream i had a while back.
I guess either i can see the future, or i'm going slightly crazy.

Either way, i've applied for that beta ;).

I just cant be a trekkie, no matter how hard I try.

Oops. In all the excitement I forgot to include a link to the actual list of ships. Thanks for the heads up, folks, it's there now.

oooh, I really want a Voyager class ship! Can't remember what their actual name is called... do they have one of those? If not, I want a Prometheus class ship ^^

Hang on, so like there are going to be 1000s of enterprises flying around pewpewing people ? Doesnt feel like it will be a very believeable universe. This is a fundamental failing of so many mmos, they push so hard to make you feel like your so uber special, but when everybody is a superhero it just feels bizarre and wrong

I don't see that as being as big a deal in a Star Trek universe MMO. The Enterprise was simply one named ship, of any specific class, that the series focused on. The larger space battles had hundreds if not thousands of ships fighting at the same time. The story just focused on the one.

I'm excited, can't wait to fly around in a Defiant class ship!

The Enterprise is merely the flagship of the Federation: it's not as though there aren't other ships of the same class.

I like the idea, but at the same time, I'd prefer to play as the Kligon Empire: their ships tend to look awesome regardless of tier once you get past the K'Tinga class (or whichever one looks like a ball on the end of a stick.)

For those complaining about how the ships look

Voyager's Class was Intrepid, and yes it is availible, as well as a modification to it called the discovery.

Personally, I would prefer the Defiant or whatever the hell the NX-91001 is (Specifications make it out to be one hell of a Federation Beast). Then again, there's something about a Romulan Warbird that just makes me feel warm, fuzzy, and just a little psychotic inside.

I'm rather excited about this myself, will be checking up on that list often.

The class of ship you linked from Bridge Commander Files is not the Valiant, that is the Century Class also known as the Enterprise - F.

Ah the infamous ball on a stick class. Isn't that the K-7 class cruiser? Well there is the K'Tinga but that's the one you see in the movies, which is a more updated version of the K-7.

Anyways, as for Star Trek: Online, I really dislike many of their Federation designs, they've gone way off from the standard Federation design philosophies that it just doesn't look right anymore. Their updated Intrepid class looks more like a Borg ship if anything else. And how dare they end the long lasting alliance between the Klingons and the Federation. By the end of DS9 the Feds and Klingons were like best buddies.

I like some of the new Federation designs (mainly the science ships) but some of them have really weird shapes. Presumably they'll release an expansion pack that lets you play as the Klingons... the only faction that nobody really cares about playing are the Romulans.

There's a Miranda on there! I love those ships!
wait... my memory just collapsed... I can't remember why I love them. just a feeling of extreme fondness that comes from using them on Star Trek: StarFleet Command.

I can't wait to play the Romulans and kick the living crap out of those peace loving Federation jerks.

you know what is sad... look at their clan page area.

They have 68 pages or 20 per page, which is 1360 clans made even before the game is out.

Damn. I want to re-load Bridge Commander now. You've also gotten me excited as I'm in the closed Beta and now REALLY wanna play :(
