The latest ships from STO

In their latest development blog Cryptic have posted a chart of ships in Star Trek Online, which rearranges some of the rank placements, and adds a few new ships (to be shown off in the coming weeks). Alongside that they have released two new ships into the C-Store:

Thunderchild class

The first U.S.S. Thunderchild was an Akira Class starship that fought the Borg at the Battle of Sector 001 in 2373. The Heavy Escort Refit: Thunderchild Class pays homage to the brave men and women who served aboard that vessel. This ship comes equipped with a Point Defense System. This console activates an automated Phaser Turret Point Defense System designed to defend the vessel from small craft, mines and targetable torpedoes, but that will also target larger vessels as well. This console can be equipped on any escort in any console slot.

Koro't'inga class

The famed K't'inga Class has been in continual service for the Empire since the 2270s. Now the Koro't'inga refit provides all the advantages of a K't'inga with an updated design. This vessel comes equipped with a Magnetometric Generator. This console allows the Koro't'inga to knock back, damage and disable ships with a powerful Magnetometric Overload from its deflector dish. The Magnetometric Generator may be equipped on any Battle Cruiser, Flight Deck Cruiser or Carrier, in any console slot. However, only one Magetometric Generator can be equipped on a ship.
