Mid Tier Ships in the End Game?
 
with new mods and new higher tier weapons is it possible to keep the Commander/Captain class ships viable as you move into the End game?

i.e. Fitting MK XII weapons and mods to an Akira Class Escort?

Or will you just be laughed at?

You'll have less hull, less weapon slots, less BO abilities. As for regular mission content on normal this won't count that much; however such ships aren't viable for PvP or STFs.

I know some people who do so, but they are really only viable for Borg Encounters and same-rank-ship Private PvP.

Fully agree here. In PVE missions one might fare okl, but in STFs, PvP and fleet actions the lower Tier ships are lacking. That is how the game was designed.

I suspected as much.

The only problem is that the top tier ships are sooooo ugly! ;)

I love My Akira ...the defiant is okay ...

Then sadly it all goes down hill.

I wish I had got the Jem'hadar ship from the Winter pack for this account.

I wonder if they will come back on sale?

But what happens After that????

Get a Fleet Escort with the Maelstrom skin in the C-Store, looks great.

Oh dear ...no.

Seriously? you like that? Well I guess there is no accounting for taste :)

I don't associate the chunky new designs with starfleet. Starfleet should be elegant and smooth.

Not blocky and angular!

:(

Its one of those things. Cruisers are smooth and large (lmao), Escorts are chunky and small, and science fits in the middle somehow. If all ships were smooth and elegant, it would be hard figuring what class the ship is in just by looking at it.

Whats wrong with the Defiant, Galaxy and Intrepid again?

Well nothing i guess but i'm on the Escort path so as I said ...the defiant is okay BUT after that things get a bit meh.

The prometheous is okay ... but I think The fed Ship designers peaked with the Akira.

:)

How does the Jem'hadar attack ship compare to the prometheous anyway?

I should have got the winter package!
