I'm hoping that the Excelsior has a really fast speed. I know the game is supposed to represent non-warp speed (because combat at Warp speed would be nuts!), but that 6 movement piece has to be used for something.

My guess is that will come in with the Borg ships. However, it could be the Excelsior to model the Transwarp Drive.

Many have posted, and I am inclined to agree, that the Excelsior will have a Transwarp upgrade for the 6 straight move. And, the Voyager/Intrepid class will have a 6 straight as a movement option. I'm hoping both will be restricted. As in, only on the Excelsior (or at the usual +5), and disable to use. While the Voyager gets the 6 straight as a Red maneuver. Of course, an Elite talent called "Fly it apart then!" giving a 6 straight would be cool too. Oh my.

engage is a tad faster going straight 3 on a galaxy x2, so I am not really worried about going straight 6 being too powerful so I don't think it needs to be a disable on use skill unless it is on top of another move then Wow!, but it might be like star trek 3 where if you use it there is a chance it does nothing (although it was sabotaged)

There was a thread a while back where Andrew mentioned one of the ships in wave 2 had 4 banking as a maneuver. Now to figure out if it's the Koranak, which will have its preview in 6 days, or the excelsior.

It's probably the IKS Vo. 4 banking seems more like a scoutship maneuver than a heavy cruiser maneuver.

But the excelsior had a transwarp drive, the Koranak was made to move at higher speeds with a cloaking device. I see the Vo being more like the romulan science vessel with maybe a red turn about and likely something for suitability.

So you guys actually expect some sort of cloaking device tech upgrade for the Koranak expansion pack and the Dominion faction, as the Federation got its version with the Defiant?

No, the Keldon Class should have a cloaking device in the action bar based on what we've seen from the show. It wasn't a one-off like the defiant. All the Obsidian Order equipped Keldons had cloaking.
