The G(R) has its niche if you know how to use it.
Many mistake the extra ensign engineer slot as useless. when in truth it can be a boon.
Consider the build capabilities, all of them, including a cannon/turret build, toss in saucer separation, or a DBB heavy build, and you can begin to see the possibilities.
The G(R) is far from useless, and in some ways is much better then the Oddessy in bang for the buck. I own both, actually I own all the main T5 federation cruisers, and run with them all. Carrier now included in that mix.
I find the G(R) still viable and probably one of the better PVP ships for its surprise effect, and survive-ability. Folks are not sure what they are going to get when I use to take mine into pvp with saucer separation. Nothing wrong with it, stat wize yeah folks may like the oddy, but in truth, not enough diff in the two to mean a hill of beans and definately not enough to matter 400 C points.
