New ship added to the fleet roster of Star Trek Online

If you're following Cryptic's development of Star Trek Online, you can check out the new ship they just announced. It's basically a mobile laboratory, kind of like the Grissom and Nebula class ships but used by aliens instead of the Federation.  Looks cool but I just can't get excited for this game anymore. Ever since they announced they'd be including the changes from the new movie I've just lost interest.  I know a lot of people are excited about STO and the movie but in my opinion a reboot isn't necessary, and you can't really reboot the 60s Star Trek without it looking hokey, which is exactly how the trailers look.  J.J. Abrams is kind of butchering Trek canon to shoehorn his film in there and I really feel it's a cumbersome way to do things. You don't need to rewrite history to tell a good story, and now that STO is integrating all those weird reboot changes I just can't get behind it anymore.
