i think everyone that wanted one got one by now :D

i don't think making them as big as they are was a good idea, ship sizes should have peeked with the galaxy and negvar. the game is over saturated with huge slow turning cruisers that have nothing but size based disadvantages with their movement ability, wile smaller ships seem to get movement advantages and no disadvantages.

an odyssey that was only a bit bigger then the sovereign, in a scale like this would have been better.

you could believe it could have an 8 or 9 turn rate, and would be much more fun to use. the current size based extra hitpoints will give you about half a second extra before you die, it makes basically no difference at all

This counts as news?

I don't get it...

Lower the price and I might buy one.

Can we get more choices? That is only 2 ships being called the "Best there is". The KDF ship well I don't like the looks at all, looks very ugly. So my KDF character will be using the Negh'var instead. That is one ship I won't buy. As the Fed ship, it looks decent I can see buying that one. But not at this time since I hadn't reached lv 50 yet on my Fed character. Even then I'm still at at a toss up of the Galaxy Dreadnaught or Odyssey.

Plus "if" everyone ends up with either of these 2. We all will be looking the same. We don't need a fleet of the same ship. That is really boring and dull.

The only thing that even remotely interests me is the workbee console, but I am certainly not paying 50$ for it. I'd rather buy milk and eggs and bread. Even with a LTS stipend, my zen balance isn't likely to get spent on a ship this expensive that I'll never have any interest in flying.

The Odyssey in my opinion was poorly designed, looking from the top it looks terrible, same with the Atrox, ship designs since F2P have gone down hill even the Federation Escort Carrier is badly designed.

Out of all the new ships I think the Bortas is the best looking imo. But still I don't fly cruisers (only the Galor, Free Bortas, Vorcha and D'Kora), I felt this news post was a lazy way to try and convince people to put more money into the game. Well guess what Cryptic, to make money you need to release new content ie, put money into the game, bring out some more KDF ships and I will fork out the money, I have the Defiant Retrofit and Excelsior and that's all I want on the Federation side. Now if the Jem'Hadar ship was run again I would pay money to get one, tried last time with no luck but a handful of Doff's which wasn't bad.

I personally consider them the among the worst ships in the game.....

I honestly thought somebody zombie'd the original flagship post when I read the heading btw.... :P

Might want to have marketing talk with the design team about making the consoles less terrible than they are.

jeeze this thread got nasty. the flagships are very powerful, nothing tanks quite as well or is as strong in as many cruiser specific areas.

i expect to see more blogs like this, featuring existing c store content and putting stuff in the spot light. its likely branflakes doing them no no dev seconds were wasted making this or anything.
