1. What ship(s) did you fly as you ranked up? For each, primarily PvE, PvP or both? Group or solo?

ENG VA ==> Light Cruiser, Science Vessel, Cruiser, Cruiser (Envoy), Assault Cruiser. 70% PvE 30% PvP ranking up. 90% solo.
TAC VA ==> Light Cruiser, Escort, Escort, Tac Escort, Adv Escort. 70% PvE 30% PvP ranking up. 90% solo.
Sci LtCom ==> Light Cruiser, Escort. 70/30 pve to pvp, 90% solo

2. What ship(s) do you fly at cap? For each, primarily PvE, PvP or both? Group or solo?

My ENG VA flies a Star Cruiser right now, but as my first capped toon he has flown almost all of the T5 ships except the Galaxies, Intrepid-R and Nebula (Assault Cruiser, Star Cruiser, Fleet Escort, Adv Escort, Def-R, RSV, DSSV). 70/30 pve to pvp, 90% solo

My TAC VA flies an Adv Escort with MVAM Console right now. He has flown all of the T5 escorts though at one time or another. 70/30 pve to pvp, 90% solo

3. Which ship(s) do you think are currently overpowered? PvE, PvP, or both? Specifically why?

All the ships are overpowered in PvE except Sci ships in certain circumstances. I hesitate to say this because I like doing PvE quickly for my emblems

In PvP I have not found any ships to be overpowered. They all have their own strengths and weaknesses which are exploited to varying degrees by the playerbase.

4. Which ship(s) do you think are currently underpowered? PvE, PvP, or both? Specifically why?

I don't think any ships are underpowered in PvE really. Only ones that come close are the Sci ships, but they really just end up taking longer.

In PvP my opinion is that Science ships are a tad underpowered. This is only because the Sci ships tend to 'need' a bit more coordinated play to do as well as cruisers and escorts. I have found cruisers and escorts to be more forgiving in PUGS especially.

5. What feature of your favorite ships do you like the most? As in, console configurations, station configurations, aesthetics, special abilities, etc.?

Wow, tough question I like engineering consoles the most because there is just more you can do there. My Sci and Tac consoles tend to get 'locked in' and not changed much. I am enjoying the universal consoles on my BOP because of the different configs they offer (not OP imo btw). For some reason I really like the look of the DSSV with no pod I've been able to tweak my cruisers and escorts enough to where I like the looks usually. Star Cruiser can seem a bit 'elongated'...I like the Nomad saucer, but not the part of the hull that dips down like a tail...that always threw me. The hephaestus Adv Escort skin is ok, I do use that. I bought the maelstrom skin for the Fleet and use it but it is a bit meh...I really did not like the Imperial skin for the Assault Cruiser. Anyway, as you can see I am rambling. Will stop now
