The problem with the d'dridex is not its stats but the transition. Both your first two ships have a focus on tactical officers with cannons and fast maneuvering. The D'dridex is a tank with a focus on beams and broadsides. However for a new or returning player the sudden shift in tactics and required bridge officer skills is huge. I think, too huge.

Most new players will slot up their officers and wonder why the ship doesn't work. They won't realize that it turns faster while cloaked, nor will they know how to take advantage of this. All they will know is that the game trained them how to win for 20 levels and then threw a pie in their face, stole all their toys and made everyone in room laugh at them.

Veterans will slot it up just fine and use it. New players and those who don't already know the game inside out get majorly screwed.

It is one of two places in the new romulan content where the Devs screwed up big time. The other being the final mission. Both cases veterans know how to make the best of it, and new players get the shaft.
