I have a bunch of people in the fleet who fly exclusively Galaxy Rs. They aren't bad ships (I have a decent cannon build for one myself) but as above posted they are a bit outdated compared to the '25th century' giant cruisers.
If the ship were say, 1200 CP it would be worth it but as it stands, just get 400 more c points (or 500 more Zen next week) and get a Operations Odyssey if you want to play with saucer separation.
Although the Galaxy-R is definitely not underpowered or useless as some make it up to be, dollar for dollar as a c-store ship, it's not worth the purchase. No, not even for the classic looks... unless you really want the Galaxy model for roleplaying purpose or like me, just trying to be funny buying the worst ships and having fun with them.
You'll end up with the same conclusion though - Odyssey is superior.
Now, if someone gave the Galaxy R a universal ensign or a Lt. Cdr Science boff, that would be a worthwhile and unique ship type. But it ain't gonna happen.
So you might as well get a Dreadnaught or an Odyssey for a endgame cruiser.
