    There's more to the Discovery Constitution than what "you're thinking about", it's implied it's going to include mechanics that are very surprising. It's also definitely going to be Tier 6, if anyone had any doubts.

    After this weeks update, Weekend Event Vouchers won't be going anywhere. There will be a blog on Monday detailing the changes to Weekend Events but nothing else is being revealed today.

    Tier 7 ships aren't planned, and won't be for the foreseeable future but still "never say never" - some reasons mentioned were powercreep considerations and community backlash.

    Operation Riposte doesn't have the Tier 6 tokens on console because of things Cryptic can't confirm or deny, but it's implied to be things more on Sony and Microsoft's end. They're considering other ways they can do a similar event, potentially involving an Epic Phoenix Token instead but it's still in discussions.

    3D Crew Printing isn't on the horizon right now, it's much more complicated than ship printing and that was a big task itself.

    More items will be added to Reengineering if the Systems Team has time.

    Discovery-era Shuttles may become accessible for 25th century Federation captains sometime soon.

    The Tier 6 Jem'hadar LTS ship exists. It's not near release, but it "exists... ish". No ETA right now.

    There's no plans on adding more Admiralty tracks right now.

    They might update some older Lockbox ships like the Verne, but it's more likely to be new versions of them instead.

    There's been lots of discussion on whether Promotion! and Lockbox ships should be account wide, but that decision will rely on player habit data and similar things that they're currently in the process of collecting.

    They're looking into making ancient content (like the Starfleet patrols) more relevant, but it's a bit troublesome since that content is very old and a lot of it is broken.

    There's no plans to bring back Exploration Clusters right now.

    Next week's big developer blog will be about the Weekend Event Store, and there's some more exciting things being revealed in a fortnight.

    Arena of Sompek is returning soon, more news on that soon.

    The revamps of the Klingon War missions that were temporarily removed is that they're on the pipeline, but the content teams doing that are very busy right now with other content too.

    It's not impossible for them to implement custom beamouts/warpouts for customization purposes, but it's a lot of work so it's not in the works right now.

    There's been no word from CBS about playable Kelpiens

    Letting us choose which bridge officers are on our bridge isn't going to be a thing.

    Since the Temporal Recruitment Event is locked to TOS captains, it's not likely going to get a rerun in favour of them making a Recruitment event for more recent content or for all factions.

    They're looking into ways to distribute the Temporal Recruitment event rewards for those that missed it somehow, but no further details.

    The next big content drop is going to be after the Summer Event, closer to Fall.

    The recent resurgence of Star Trek as a franchise has been great for possible content in STO, but it means less room for original 2410 characters and stories. The next few actors will probably be Discovery actors and Picard actors.

    Someone wants to make a story involving the Whale Probe, but that's about it.

    A Captain Proton text adventure is something they might consider for future April Fools day shenanigans.

    Nothing from Star Trek: Beyond is in the works right now.

    They "won't say no" to a new playable faction, but it won't be in the way we're thinking. Playable Borg is something they want to do, but it's not on the tables right now.

    They're looking into updating some older player and enemy models, like the old Klingon models you encounter in the early Klingon missions. Also looking into updating some hair.

    Captain rank Bridge Officers aren't in the works now, but the idea was floated around about them having their own ships.

    Discovery-era Klingons are coming, no ETA on it but they're being worked on right now.

    Missions like The Renegade's Regret work as a standalone mission, but player concerns about playing the Big Bad means it won't be a frequent thing.

    Awesome thanks Rellimie!
    To be clear, I watched the stream but these notes were a copy/paste from Reddit. I went back to link the source but now I can’t find it.

    This. So much this. This'll take a lot of sting out of looking at the exchange for that ship you want and seeing a Billion EC price tag, it'll definitely lower the price. I doubt it'll happen though, as it will probably hit PWE's bottom line with reduced key/R&D Box purchases in the long run

    The Tier 6 Jem'hadar LTS ship exists. It's not near release, but it "exists... ish". No ETA right now.
    Yes, my Jem'hadar Captain would love having a Heavy Destroyer, TYVM. While they're at it, if you're an LTS, they should make the Lotus console of each available energy type (currently Plasma, Phaser and Disruptor, and soon to be Polaron, I hope), available in the Dilithium Reclaim store so that those of us who fly the LTS ship has some options for energy type when we fly our Transformers with the console.

    Nothing from Star Trek: Beyond is in the works right now.
    Shame... I really want those uniforms (Duty, Excursion, and Duty-Dress/Starbase)

    Oh man! Just reading this made me excited about the prospect of such a ship!!. it is possible I guess, but we will have to wait and see. Im going to assume though that going by the season 2 finale, she's probably going to be very tanky and will probably be a Miracle Worker spec ship.
