After thinking about it for a while and reading some of the back and forth, I'm hoping that the reason they didn't do too much is because of larger game changes coming later on.
I'm hoping that by keeping the Galaxies as more tanky ships, that it means that they're either going to rebalance gameplay to need other roles than just DPS or maybe introduce new content that needs more than just DPS. I kind of feel that if they had just stuck a Lt. Com tac on the X that it would have basically been Cryptic giving up on any sort of movement away from the DPS fest we have now. On the other hand, the X is supposed to be more of a tac dread than anything...so idk, mixed on that one.
I'm really hoping that this is more of a "big picture" change than just being stubborn and snubbing Galaxy/X users. Of course I could just be overly optimistic about it. I hope I'm not though.
