When Star Trek Timelines launches this Fall 2015, you can build and captain both the Intrepid-class and the USS Voyager. In our latest video, Executive Producer Rich Gallup and Lead Game Designer Tim Crosby delve into both ships and what makes them unique in Star Trek Timelines.

Looks good. I don’t know if they’re confirmed before but we also see Holosuite Spy Bashir and what looks like Vash as crew.

Love the video… and Kyle’s “Am I though?”  Everything looks great, can’t wait to settle in this “fall”... or definitely by the holidays to play the tribble out of Timelines.

Also saw Beverly Crusher later in the video who had not previously been revealed.

Just saying, USS Voyager is an Intrepid class starship, not to be mistaken with Intrepid type vessels from the 22nd century.

There are going to be “Hero” vessels for several class starships that will be better than the normal, run of the mill starships.  From the video, one advantage that Voyager will have over other Intrepid class starships will be her astrometrics lab.  This doesn’t mean that Voyager is no longer an Intrepid Class ship

Looking great so far. A lot of ships I want for sure I have seen and some I am looking forward to seeing soon hopefully soon in reveals.

Still, what I meant is the writting was confusing, almost sounding as if they were different starships. It would have been clearer stating something like “build and captain Intrepid class starships, with a chance to fly the Voyager”.

On a side note, I don’t think it is a good idea to have “hero” ships. It defeats their uniqueness, it’s like “meh, what’s special about my Enterprise E if every other player around has her Enterprise E?”. I’d prefer an approach as in STO, where you can pick a ship from a class you like and turn it into your hero ship.

I’m not part of the Beta so I couldn’t tell you how available the hero ships are going to be.  However, my guess is that most players will have to grind for a very long time or pay out real money to acquire a “Hero” ship.  You’re right, if everyone gets the Enterprise-E, that would be silly.  Having a few Heroes out there amongst the overall galaxy of non heroes makes the most sense.  (And earns DB some money to recoup the cost of making the game.)

I’m kinda torn on the Hero ships. I personally would rather have a ship I can name myself, but if the Hero ships are better than I’ll feel like I have to use them if I get one. Unless we can change the Hero ship names, but I doubt it.

Of course I don’t even know if we can name our own ships. If we can than I would want the chance to get a name-able ship with Hero ship stats.

My feelings exactly. I’ve got several names picked out, but it sounds like none of these ships can ever be a match for the hero ships. Voyager has 1) better stats; 2) an extra room; and 3) an extra combat ability.

It makes sense that a hero ship would be better than a ship fresh off the line, or no one would really want one. I do think that generic ships should have some extra customization options that give them the potential to match, or even exceed, their hero variants, though. It should take a lot of work, but it should be possible.
