I've been leaning towards trying something larger - the Tac Odyssey or perhaps the new Regent class Sovereign refit. However, I'm not sure - the regular Assault Cruiser (which I also have) is too limiting in terms of Tac officer slots, and I'm wondering which of the other big alternatives offers a better "fit" for my specialty.
Is there a good big ship option for a seasoned (1000s of Elite STFs under my belt) Tac officer like me? Or should I just stick with my own class and go for something more exotic, like the Multi-Vector Prometheus build? Any other options coming down the pike with Season 7 that are worth considering?

i am a tac VA50 also. i am a big fan of oddys and really like both the tac and sci oddy. the sci oddy is one of my favorite and most reliable all around ships.
i also have the regent and the regent is a nice ship too. so you have a very tough choice.
i would recommend you take your time, research and wait to see what becomes available in season 7.
i posted a survey asking what people think are the top 5 and bottom 5 current ships. i'm hoping this will help me make some decisions.
