The Federation Dreadnought
 
I bought it yesterday. Today I'm a bit disapointed !!!

Yes, it's cool that I can equip cannons, but what's the point, since I can't turn fast enought to use them?
Another thing: From the description made about the "spinal phaser", I was convinced that the ship would come with some kind of unique weapon that would do massive damage, but no. It comes with ordinary dual phaser cannons MK VIII (not even an MK X).

Am I missing something or is this ship a big disapointment?

It has a special power to fire the spinal phaser. Check your powers tray.

As for the Spinal Lance, it's not a weapon you can equip, but an innate ability given to you once you drive the ship. It should be on your ability listing window. It does a decent damage.

Don't forget the cloak. It's pretty fun. Besides those, the ship performs subpar compared to other T5s.

The Phaser Lance works just like the beam overload you get the most effect if you hit the enemy ship when the sheilds are down you get a better effect. thats how it works for me I like the Galaxy X The duel cannons work even though the ship moves slow if you use Rapied fire it will help when your opening attack starts.

Thanks for pointing out the fact I was missing the "spinal lance" power. I had no clue about that. I'll try it later on.

Equip a few turn rate consoles too, and spend more skill points on cruiser skills, and i'll move like a bus - slow, but manouverable.

Why do people with no clue always get the shiniest stuff?

If OP feels insulted, you very well should.
ThereŽs only been 35gazillion threads about the G-X. Well enough for you to inform yourself about that bunch of virtual pixels youŽll dump 25$ into.
So there, Ha HA!

$25 ??? for a ship skin ?? and you all sucked it up like jello with extra sugar......
