It was pretty fun in the beginning with the lower-level cruisers, but once I hit Captain and got stuck in the big ol' Galaxy, I started considering making the jump over to Escorts. It wasn't until I got the free ship token at Rear Admiral, Upper Half (this was before the game went F2P) that I decided to cut my teeth on the Advanced Escort.

I've been flying the Defiant Retrofit (now a Fleet Defiant-R) for about two years now. I never bought the Defiant-R from the C-Store since I got it with a token, but I did buy the Sao Paulo. I still stick to primarily Defiant parts on my ship, though. And no amount of theorycrafting about how much the [Dmg] modifier sucks compared to [Acc] modifiers will get me to swap out my Quad Cannons.
It's odd - one of the reasons I love the Fleet Rhode Island so much is that I loved the old T2 version. I stuck with that little ship right up to T4, when swapped it for the Long Range Science vessel.

Needless to say, I was one of the players constantly saying that I wished that they would produce a T5 Nova class, and was ridiculously pleased when it was announced that a Fleet version would be produced.
