All other T5 ships have nine console slots. Ladies and gentlemen, applause for our first T5 pay to win ship.
Its not only the console setup.

Technicly the Odysee is the ultimate sandbox cruiser.
You can replicate ALL other Cruser BO setups with it 1 at 1. Just with more consoles (and a lower turn rate but since its a cruiser...)
This ship can litarally do everything and makes all other cruisers entirely obsolete.

Really... for me thats a gamebraker.
I dont go into pvp or STFs with a significantly weaker ship.
And its not that I'm not willing to pay for a better ship (although I dislkie the pay2win concept, I understand that under f2p money has to be made somehow), its that we are forces to take such an UGLY piece of garbage for this.

I mean; if they want the sandbox ship; fine. Unlock the other cruiser skins for it and I MIGHT buy one or two odysees.
And give Scis and escorts the same treatment, pay for the sandbox ships that can be costumized visually and tecnicly; if thats what they want... okey.
I mean people asked for more universal slots since release, so good.... go ahead.

But the one ueber ship limitet to the MKII-ugly-whale-class visuals... no, that just sucks. It takes ANYTHING thats good about this game out.
