Warp Cores
 
it kinda bugs me how the main powersource on your ship isnt somthing that can be changed out we got impulse shileds deflector i think warp core should be in that mix isnt there sever diferent kinds?? this is a thought wanted to see how the comunity felt lol

lets say an ability of a warp core could be an enhaced explosion upon detination......or more power..faster recaharge.......add 15 secs to slipstream haha stuff like that

Warp Core upgrades would be neat for overall power levels, and an increase in Sector Space speed. It'd be a pain to balance though. (Since the main differences between the ship tiers and types is how their power is used.)

ya i thought of that but i also think ya and escort has more weapons power well ya its geared for it and keep it that way the core would be your added bonus and sice everyone could have one its to your build and play style

perhaps powerlevels would be hard to ballance but they could just add a bonus to somthing cool like my marter idea where the core blows up bigger when you die or gives you an ability.... to me its just somthing thats missing from the game

Sector-space speed is determined by ones level not by an engine and I don't see that changing besides the borg-impulse engine.

I'd think warp cores would be for engineering as deflector dishes are to science.

Besides a seperate Warp Core Equipment Slot, our Starships need one for Hull / Armor (or is anyone using them in a eng-console slot?) and of course one for the Computer Core.

Also add a Helmet / Headgear and a Tricorder Equipment Slot for the ground part.

But we never gonna see it. :(

I agree
 
I think each ship should have had a place where we can buy a warp engine for the ship. It should be a part of the ships equipment slots along with deflectors, impulse, and shields.

When your warp drive is taken out it should severally weaken your ships power grid. In Star Trek the warp reactor is the primary source of power for the ship. I think impulse power should be the source for auxiliary power in the game. The warp drive should be the primary power for your grid.

I think at certain points in battle or other situations the warp core can be ejected. Like they have done in several shows and movies.

Thank you.

I appreciate the topic but it is starting to bother me the more I think about this issue. When you get a new ship, you receive more weapon slots, better engine performance, and better shield performance. You also receive a hull boost; pending the type of ship.

So, in essence, you get a higher performing “warp core” every time you level up and get a higher tier ship. At most, maybe, you should be able to have a “universal” tier warp core to place in lower level ships. Why one would do that with all the other performance gaps handicapping said lower tier ship is difficult to answer.

I guess what I’m saying is; you get a better warp core as you level. Just because it is not in a specific slot doesn’t mean it’s not happening.
