Cruiser retrofit
 
Hello.
I once had the tier 2 escort. It was a good escort when I was at that level. Today I discovered that this escort had a retrofit version for vice admiral players. Why not create a retrofit version for the tier 2 cruiser? The tier 2 version of the science cruiser do also have a retrofit.

Thanks for all answers.

I thought the Exeter Class was the Cruiser Retrofit? http://www.stowiki.org/Cruiser_%28Fe...9#Exeter_class

Because if they did that, then there would be a T5 Constitution floating around the game, and for some kind of legal or licensing reasons, that is apparently not allowed.

The end game cruiser is essentially the Excelsior retrofit cruiser. It's from the TOS era[ed: well, the TOS movies...] but high enough to be useful at end-game. While I'd personally LOVE to have a fleet cruiser that looks like a Miranda class (they're in plentiful use during the DS9 cookie cutter battle scenes), I don't know if it will ever happen.

Basic ENG cruiser setup, ENS/LT tac, CMDR/LtCDR ent, LT sci... or make the ENS tac and the LT sci universal so you can mix and match.

That would be a good cruiser to have. Not too different from the tier5 cruisers, but with new looks.

They gave us the KDF K'Tinga, which was an early ship still in use by DS9 times, so why not Miranda?

We are not allowed T5.


GIVE US T4.

Even a T4 cruiser would be awsome.

TOS Constitution experiment
 
I have now bought a T1 TOS Constition class light cruiser to test how well it fights level 50 NPC's in normal dificultiy. I will share my build later. It's still work in progress.

The hull is only 13 000 and that is smal. It helps a lot with a XII MACO shield. There are only 3 weapon slots on this ship, so you can't get much firepower. There are three ensign bridge officer slots. That makes abillities with shared cooldown a bad idea.

I have tested this ship in PvE with other players. The fun thing there is that the enemies doesn't target me often. They choose to target targets with more hull. I die maximum one time in such a event. It have happend that ships with more hull than me have blowed up before me, but that is because the enemies target them instead of me.

I have not tested PvP with this ship. Why? Because it would have blown up in a few seconds. This ship is only for PvE engineers.

Fllying a ship like this is a good way to train your pilot skill, because it forces you to surrive without many buffs.

I will do more testing with this. Remember: Everything old is new :3

They ignore you because you pose no threat to them;)

Something about only 4 weapons... as opposed to the 8 of a standard tier 5 cruiser... and the 7 of a tier 5 escort... and the 6 of a tier 5 science ship...

Yeah, if he drew ANY aggro, that would mean one of two things: 1) Everyone else was already dead. 2) Everyone else was AFK and not shooting.

Let the Connie go where the Excelsior should have stayed: HISTORY.

Or at the very least Cryptic should add some "25th-century" skins for the Excelsior.

The Connie already has two, the "Constitution" skin for the T2 Cruiser and the Exeter Refit skin (which is a hybrid of Enterprise-A and Abrams-Trek), so the Excelsior should get at least one to bring it up to speed. It almost feels wrong that this aging centuries old dinosaur is STILL arguably one of the best Tac cruisers in the game, AND now has a Fleet version!
