it took a little while to trawl through the forums various threads but i think you would agree it was worth the time and effort.

there were a few other rumours but honestly they were so ludicrous it seemed silly to add them to the list but it seems apt to add them here if only for a little fun.

The rumour mill part 2 "the silly rumours list"

#1. You will have to buy a whole new Dreadnought that has the separation as an innate ability. (it was also rumoured this would be a battle cloak but was later dismissed as pure fiction)

#2. There will be a Galaxy Pack containing all the Galaxy ships with "all ship" compatible consoles in the same way as the Odyssey pack (this was actually in the works but was later dismissed by the Dev team)

#3. Once the Galaxy consoles go "Galaxy universal" that ANY of the Galaxy class variants could use the Dreadnoughts cloak. (due to the Dev team wishing to limit the cloak to certain ships this was never going to work)

#4. The dreadnought would receive the Odyssey treatment giving us an Engineering and Tactical variant of the ship (again this was dismissed as the current Dreadnought IS an engineering ship at for the Tactical rumour read on)

#5. The Dreadnought is going to be totally refitted in game to make it a more "Tactical" ship by swapping out a Lt engineering Boff for a Lt. Tactical Boff. (although this has not been completely quashed it seems very unlikely given the huge tactical advantage granted by the separation console)

#6. The Spinal Lance will receive a smaller cool down but have its power somewhat reduced making it more usable but less powerful (yes this is unlikely but again would this be the worst thing in the world? we asked some PVPing Klingons....there vaporized atoms declined to comment)

and the one rumour that has haunted these forums since the Dreadnought was introduced...

#7. The Dreadnought will be able to alter the "energy type" used in the spinal lance to match the majority of the ships equipped weapons eg: if you run a Disruptor barge your spinal lance will fire disruptor bursts rather than phaser ( now i for one would in many ways LOVE this to come to fruition but honestly its never going to happen...but there is a reason its been on the rumour radar so constantly for the last year or so)

so there you have it, the various Dreadnought related rumours that simply didn't make the grade. Do with them what you wish but honestly it is widely believed that these are simply never going to happen and should be treated as the fevered dreams of madmen
