Odyssey Class Ships
 
I just have to say that I love the new class of Starfleet ships the odyssey class. Even the bridge is awesome... I remember when I was a kid,around like 12,13,or 14,I had a dream that I was a captain a starfleet ship and the bridge in my dream looks exactly like the bridge of the Odyssey class ship....Whoever designed the ship and the bridge,thanks.

I love the bridge of Enterprise-F. I dont see it any where in the ship customization screen for the interrior. When im on the bridge of my Oddy it doesnt look like the Enterprise F's bridge.

There are two custom bridges associated with the Odyssey class...one for the prototype/standard Odyssey that was released during the Anniversary (the Odyssey bridge), and one for the C-Store specialized Odyssey (Tactical, Operations, or Science), which is known as the Aquarius bridge.

Both bridges are under their own heading in the customization menu...you can't select small or large interior, just either Odyssey or Aquarius bridge (note that the Anniversary Odyssey only has the option for the Odyssey bridge, while the C-Store flagships can select either the Odyssey or Aquarius bridges).

The bridge associated with the new Enterprise is the Aquarius bridge, so you can only select it if you are using one of the flagship Odysseys from the C-store.

The bridge I'm talking about in my original post is the Aquarius Bridge.....

Do you have to buy the bulk pack to get the special bridges, or will the 2k Ody include them?

Any of the C-Store Odysseys will have access to both Odyssey bridges. The pack just gets you all three of the variants at once, allowing you to put the three different consoles you would get with each purchase onto one ship.

Personally, I think the pack is too steep, since all you are really doing is buying the one Odyssey you really want and two other consoles for twice the price, but that's up to you.

each of the three variants have different console layouts and shield ratings and innate power level bonuses.

every char i use an oddyssey with is a different variant, so i'm getting use out of all of them. The Sci oddy might be the overall "best" but sometimes i want that extra engineer console or extra Tac console.

i love my tactical odyssey,cause of the escort that is a part of it...One thing i don't get is why does the tac Odyssey have one more engineering slot than tactical slot.....That is odd

Because, whatever the changes made for enhancing one area of operations or another, the Odyssey is still a Cruiser, made first and foremost to have the strongest defenses in the Fleet. It's true that the Tactical Odyssey is built more for combat than the other two versions, but not at the expense of its primary purpose in the Fleet.

From a game standpoint, Cruisers are all Engineering-centric. For more emphasis on Tactical than Engineering, you would go to the T5 +1 Escorts, such as the Armitage or MVAE, while for similar emphasis on Science, you would go with the Atrox or Long Range Retrofit (though the Advanced Research Retrofit would be closer to an Odyssey, it doesn't have equal Science capacity to the Long Range Retrofit).

In short, if the Odyssey had more Tactical or Science slots/BOFF stations than Engineering, it wouldn't be a Cruiser.
