I had bought this ship originally, but after years of being forgotten I melted it. Now I almost have a sour taste in my mouth whenever its brought up lol. Looks good, but until I hear a date or something remotely like a timelines as to when it gets done, I will let the BBT sit and collect dust.

Yeah it's a pretty touchy subject.

There was a full on argument on general chat in discord earlier today about this ship. On the SC Subreddit, there's also been a posting made about this new redesign with mixed results. Yeah it's pretty polarizing.

Ahh... The ship that made me interested in SC, and finally made me start to back the game.

I really liked that weekly show/competition they had "The Next Great Starship". There is so much talent out there!
Hope they will do something simular in the fututre!

It will be intersting to see how the final design ends up... If the Redeemer will have that "tail gun", or a crane or guns on the outside of the engines like rumours say...

Time will tell....

Interested to see how they repackage this ship after so long. Maybe I'll CCU something into it this trip.

I melted this sucker before though. The interior felt too cramped. Always felt the ship needed a wider hull for what was packed into it.

Oh man. I almost feel like CIG isn't really working on the ship because CR doesn't really care for it. Having the community vote on a ship was more of a gimmick.
The problem is in part that the Aegis style guide emerged as a thing after this design. The other Aegis ships already shared enough in common that the brand came together, but this really looks more MISC to me. Still, seems they are pursuing it. This was in the 3.9.1 leaks. I'm shocked it appears they're leaving the engines in. I'll be more shocked if they stay.

I hope they didn't lose the cargo boom in the rear stem. That was very cool. And yes, the rear turret does get rid of the blind spots, something that CIG had mandated for the original competition. Pretty sure they changed the rear wings from downward sloping to upward sloping to get them out of the rear turret field of fire. Makes this more deadly. Still needs S4s, IMHO. 6 S4s and the rear turret S3s and I could toy with replacing the Sentinel. . .well, maybe not.

Yeah I agree. Chris simply does not feel the design fits with the rest of the line.

Changing the shape to make it fit in would piss off all the original buyers, so they just leave it hanging in the wind.
