    Yeah, I like it. Definitely feeling the hybrid vibes with the Sovereign too. In all fairness, I'm more excited for the Galaxy class revamp more than this new ship. I wonder if the upgraded Galaxy class revamp will be the T6 Fleet version. Would make total sense I guess, but I'm mega happy that's its part of a bundle, and a bundle I would be happy to pay good Zen for too.

    Honestly if that IS the Ross class, I’m okay with that it doesn’t look awful.

    Looks nice but I’m struggling to see what the actual in universe reason for such a ship would be.
    The Andromeda is already there as a continuation of the galaxy line of vessels and the try and shoehorn in yet another variant just to sell more ships seems silly when there are so many other ships e we could get instead.
    I mean what is this ship going to bring that the Andromeda doesn’t already provide?

    Good point. I think its going to bring Miracle Worker spec along with the Jem'Hadar Wingman mechanic for the Saucer separation, as those two specializations were not around when the Andromeda was released 4 years ago. If Cryptic introduce another variant, its a chance to revamp models, add in new gimmicks etc to older style ships.Thats my assumption anyhow.

    I doubt that the she will get the Jem'Hadar Wingman mechanic considering this is unique to Jem'Hadar ships like Singularity Cores are unique to Romulan ships.

    Yeah true, I didnt think of that. Well, I'll happily settle with Miracle Worker Specialization for sure. As I said previously too, Im mostly happy to have a screen accurate version of the 6ft Galaxy class model!

    In the clear skies RPG it was mentioned that the Ross was the first federation starship to require 2 warp cores. Maybe this ship will include a Secondary Warp Core slot.

    Also the fact that its confirmed to be a bundle, the anniversary ship is something else.

    Doesn’t the Intrepid class have two reactor cores as well; at least going by the MSD anyway.

    On the MSD yes but it was never explicitly stated. Most ship MSDs show a secondary reactor core.

    from what ive read in various books, etc Intrepid class ships have a primary warp core and a reserve warp core...
    the Prometheus class has 3 cores, obviously....
    classes such as the Vesta and Luna, are supposed to have twin intermix chambers / warp cores in a side-by-side set up....
    the Akira is supposed to twin cores also just located near each of the catamarans... (which makes sense considering there appear to be ejection hatches on the ventral hull and the fact that the Akira has a fly-through shuttlebay…)
    the old Bradbury class had a core in each engineering hull.... it was a odd looking ship... like 2 Excelsior engineering hulls connected via a saucer...

    That 2nd warp core really addresses one issue I had with the Galaxy Class, the fact that civilian passengers were expected to escape via the saucer section , which did not house the warpcore while the stardrive, which did, stayed and fought, this fixes that issue for me Big Grin
