Fleet Assault Cruiser
 
x4 Fleet Ship Modules & 20,000 Fleet Credits

For the Fleet Ship Modules alone, that's a price of 2000 zen, or 22000000 Engery Credits (at last count). Fleet Credits are easier to come by; all one must do is contribute.

The big question though, is the purchase worth it? I'm an Engineering toon, currently flying a Patrol Escort (I find them more fun to play at the moment). The only Fleet Ship I've ever been truly interested in is the Fleet Assault Cruiser, more specifically the Lt. Cmd Tactical Slot (armed with Torp HY3 or Torp Spread 3 most likely).

Still, for the sake of that alone, added with an extra Tactical Slot and a new Ship Skin (of which I wont be using any of as I deem the Imperial Class/Skin ugly) does the cost warrant the purchase? Sure, I get a bit of a hull and shield buff, along with the already mentioned tactical console slot, but I'm not sure whether the actual price warrants the purchase.

I've already got the Assault Cruiser (and Mirror Star Cruiser) so I've got everything that I'd use on the cosmetic scene. I'm probably going to respec my toon soon so that he's more ENG-orientated (he's kind of all over the place at the moment).

But yeah, yay or nay to the Fleet Assault Cruiser?

I bought it, so obviously yay from me. The fleet skin is absolutely hideous btw, but you don't have to use it fortunately.

It's the best Enterprise you can currently fly in the game, so what's not to love :) I only wish it would come with the wide angle torp if you bought it with 4 fleet modules.

I don't think it's overpriced either, it's on par stat-wise with lockbox ships, and they usually go for 50M EC+, so a bit over 20 isn't that much in comparison IMO. But I never had problems with EC in this game, I know I'd never buy fleet modules with Zen though.

I so want to upgrade my Regent to this but my fleet doesn't have a tier 5 shipyard and I do not want to pay 20 million EC's to rent somebody else's.

That seems kind of unfortunate.

Yes I can recommend it, very capable cruiser. Use the Imperial Saucer and Neck, with the Sovereign Hull and Pylons, and Regent Nacelles, to get a great looking ship.

The only downside is that if you are used to the Excelsior, you will miss that extra point in turn rate.

Bar none my favorite cruiser in the game.

It's a decent upgrade from the regent, even more so from the base assault cruiser.

It's not as big of a jump from the fleet excelsior, but then again some people greatly dislike the look of that ship, all performance aside.

I bought it and coughed up 40M EC for permanent access to a T5 shipyard.

I picked it up sometime in February. I think I switched out to my Steamrunner all of once. I haven't touched my Excel-R, Defiant-R or Odyssey (3-piece set) since.

To me, it was definitely worth it.
