As many might be aware, the Miranda is my favourite Starfleet ship, it has been for many years, so when I heard the possibility of a Tier 6 variation on our forums, I did get quite excited. The Klingons and Romulans get their own Advanced Light Cruiser, which will probably have the same, or similar stats, when those are released, but they aren't based on previous designs. Both the KDF and Rom starter ships already have a Tier 6 variation in the Kor Bird-of-Prey (and Fleet version) and the T’liss Temporal Warbird (although not widely available), so it didn't leave their starter ships open for a reboot.

The news of the Advanced Light Cruiser bundle came out today, without a date for release, only knowing that it will be soon! With this news now out, we should see the stats for the ship come out soon and hopefully some theory builds, from our very own Bridger, if he is up for it. Alongside the C-Store variations, we will see Fleet variations, so those with the EC but no Zen will be able to get the ship still, minus the starship trait, which usually doesn't change much.

Talking of the starship trait, the one across all of these ships will be Evasion Specialist Starship Trait, which grant Shield Hardness and Shield Regeneration for 5sec upon the activation of Emergency Power to Engines or any pilot ability, the starship trait only has a chance to trigger once every 15 seconds.

After announcing the bundle, the news of the model updates for the tier 1 Miranda was released, which brings in the Saratoga parts, as well as Type 8 hull/Type 6 windows to create a more classic look for your Miranda. It's likely that you will be able to use these parts with your T6 variation, which is certainly something I am looking forward to!

While the Miranda is a classic design, I really love the modern version of it they made. So Three, does this mean you will be attending STF Sunday this weekend? Wink

I kind of really wish I had the money for this, the Miranda is one of my favorite designs. Especially since I have a nice set of the Pulse Phaser Beam Arrays. Mmmm. I would want to run it on a 22c. engineer toon.
