Galaxy X. Atrox. Tholian Recluse. IIRC, every KDF "cruiser". All of these can mount dual cannons. Heck, give me 2 of these RCS consoles on my engie's Gal-X and he might try to figure out a dualie build, and my Sci would love the turn rate his Reculse would have - can you say GW III and dual cannons almost whenever I want?
Well, with the upgrade announcement leaving NX and Connie fans in the dust again, can we restart / revisit the T5 Connie and NX threads - since they will no longer be "truly" endgame ships... (after we get the T5 versions, it'll be time to see them added to the T5U upgrade charts too...
