It is a very good and fun ship. But I haven't put it through Borg elite STFS yet.

It takes quite a while to charge up, so it's not really suitable for PvP, Buffed with an Engineer using EPS Transfer and Tac Team it only took about half of a Tactical Escorts hull while he was buffing when I took it into a challenge match to test. So, it's not OP, you'd have to hold the target in a tractor, activate it, and hope someone else tractors them to keep em in place. Beyond that though, the radiation cloud does negligible damage from what I saw, though the radiation proc of a successful hit will do another 15k or so damage if not cleared.

That said I am disappointed in the interior, it's accurate, but it's just two rooms. It wouldn't have been hard to put a turbolift behind the door in the rear of the Thalaron room that leads to the other decks. I mean for 25-50 dollars? (75 if one at a time) it's not so much to ask to add that turbolift.

So I guess we'll be seeing a ton of people flying these now? This is one of the things that really makes this game lose a sense of immersion. It would be nice to think that the high end ships like Odyssey, Bortas and all those were harder to come by than just throwing money at the company or being thrown a new ship when you level up.

It would be great to have a sense of accomplishment when getting a better ship, so when you see someone flying a Galaxy, Ody, Scimitar or anything like that, you would think, "Wow they must have worked hard to get that".

Still, it looks like they are at least keeping these new ships balanced. I got to say that the ship does look very impressive, good job Cryptic.

Agreed.

The easy availability of new, powerful stuff is one of the contributing factors to the decline of this game and the reality that we're constantly burning through content; it's all paid for at the click of a button as opposed to earned. When they stop handing everything out at the price of a few hours work and start putting it at the end of meaningful content (read: not at the end of a menu grind), people will start to find value in their ownership and experience in STO.

Cool I'm sure many will be buying and trying them out. I won't get mine til I get up to level on my Romulan. So that will be a while from now. By then the newness will wear out. And many will go back to some other ship. Plus I have 2 other Romulan ships to buy first.

maddog0000doom 07-02-2013 05:02 PM

my only complaint is ONE hanger?

why does every other dreadnough, carrier, get 2 and the scimitar only gets 1?

n0vastarone 07-02-2013 05:08 PM

yeah at these prices...how come we arent getting full Interiors. Vesta, odyssey, bortas packs all got full interiors....what gives?
