2. Battlecruisers can equip dual cannon-type weapons.
3. All ships excluding the BoP and the Carrier get a standard cloak.
And that's really it. Our shields are the same, weapons, skills, abilities, engines, sensor packages... everything is identical. We don't get a crew-warrior bonus to repel boarders, we don't get skills that reflect our warrior based culture... not really. We don't get to join and fight for or a house, no conquest of lesser worlds... And the Feds should be just as unique, with the emphasis on free thought, adaptability, discovery and curiosity about the galaxy around them.
So what am I saying? I think somebody needs to sit down and come up with some ways for the two factions to
be unique, and not just different shapes of the same things.
I agree, the current course of things is taking us away from that individuality.
