Fleet Cheyenne worth it?
 
Simply put, before i shell out for 4 fleet mods, is the ship worth it?

Yes :) Yet, I'm a fan of the Dakota style.

But milage varies and nothing - NOTHING - beats an Excelsior in my book.

Well, that boils down to your playstyle and preference in either lt.cmd engineering or tactical. The Cheyenne is certainly tough ship. The Excelsiors has higher firepower.

So what would you think about the free version of it? The 200K fleet mark one. Not worth it cause of the 1 less tac console and slightly lowered stats?

Free version is meh, I own the fleet version an I'm fairly happy with that, it has that old school assault cruiser layout which I like. The inertia of the ship is horrible tho.

Basically the impression I've gotten of this ship is that it IS an assault cruiser in playstyle with a few extra perks (e.g. better shield mod).

Ye and extra sci console which can be used to enhance your shields. I would say overall its pretty nice ship. Not remarkable by anything, but nicely balanced in both offensive and defensive potential.

I would pick one of those up as a "demo version" of the Fleet ship. If you like/hate the basic Retrofit, I have to believe you'll feel the same way about the fleet version. Across the neutral zone, I did precisely that to evaluate the K'Tinga Retrofit for my Gorn Engineer.

I always liked the look of the heavy cruisers, aiming to get the fleet cheyenne on my tactical captain once i can farm up enough marks.

I have fun with it in my tac toon. Mine has a transphasic Torps with fore and rear Harpang torps.
