Quit whining? When did this ever happen?
We'll just ask for a
REAL dreadnought that combines superior firepower with good maneuverability. If I don't beat up a Borg Cube within 5 seconds and win 15:0 in FvK (as Fed), the ship isn't good enough.
Seriously, dreadnought or battleship is meaningless. It has to be balanced against all other tier 5 ships. If you want more firepower, you have to take away survivability and support abilities, or you just created a ship that's overpowered.
The best thing Cryptic could do is fix the existing Galaxy Dreadnought. Add a weapon slot or reduce the Phaser Lance cooldown, and they might have a ship that's fully comparable to other tier 5 ships, but feels more focused on battle.
