I'd bide my time until the Tactical Odyssey comes out on the 15th. It's a +1 T5 Dreadnought, and will be a little more powerful then the Excelsior or the Gal-X.

i keep hearing there will be three variants.. I'm betting it's the same layout as the current one except the universal is set and you get a console/device

I haven't heard about the cannons, but I'd doubt it. Of course it comes with an Escort Combat Pet that has it's own Quad cannons. :)

The 10 Console slots are a nice bonus, plus 3 of them are Tac - which equals the Excelsior and exceeds the Gal-X. The Aquarius is probably equivalent to the Lance, and you have the extra tanking ability the Odyssey brings over the Gal-X.

It's been mentioned, but no idea when, or if, it will appear.

The Gal X has 3 tac Console slots as well, I know this for a fact bc I own the ship.
