There was more. It seems like the power transfer was reduced or something like that. It was a couple months before season 5. Whatever it was reduced the ablities 10 fold. It was said to be in the name of 'Balance'. They felt the Excelsior was too good. I remember the Transwarp deal. I already had transwarp to several systems and didn't need what they were doing. Plus the new skills system made things a mess.

To me this was a horror story. I had a good ship at the time that became a bad ship that I paid 20 some odd bucks for.

Some people may think it's a good ship now but it's only a shadow of what it once was.

I will try it again some time but Not until I have XII stuff for it.
