think of my stats as what these ship's fleet level version should look like. the whole tier 3 and 5 thing is stupid and years out of date of a concept at this point. just add the ship at RA level, and then launch a fleet version at the same time. or just offer the fleet level version, and let anyone who misses the event buy them from the fleet store.

i think the version we will get is at least going to be a RA level. and at the same time the tier 3 version will be added to the c store, most likely with a console to give it a reason to exist at all.

as far as the galaxy>ambassador thing goes, don't let canon cloud your reasoning. i know, it SHOULD mater, but it doesn't and it wont. LTC sci is just a niche that makes sense for it. its got shrimpy phaser arrays by modern standards, it should be tactically inferior to the galaxy, VERY tactically inferior. so we balance that with stronger sci, thats why a dinky intrepid can be at the same tier as a galaxy. the ambassador and sovereign are basically the same volume, really its just an older sovereign as far as cruiser ranking goes. it continues to be a crime that the game is set up so every attribute the galaxy has counts as a disadvantage, but thats what we got, and they wont even acknowledge its a problem.

as far as the kdf ships go, the neg var should be twice as powerful and dangerous as a vorcha, but again, the game favors small and maneuverable, those are always good, large is always bad. its a joke that those ships are at the same level. but oh well. my ktinga beats both their ass, proboly the biggest crime against ship logic of all. as far as the Kamarag goes, count on it to be the kdf's excelsior. the excelsior hardly makes sense too, at least the Kamarag is a few decades newer.
