# 1 Need some ship advice
05-13-2013, 07:18 PM
I was hoping to get some input on what ship I should use. I've only recently come back to the game after a several year hiatus. I'm a lifer, so I had a ton of zen to play around with and I did.

I'm a tactical captain and while I don't mind escorts, I'm a little disappointed in the lack of survivabilty. I'm also not a huge fan of using canons. I have enjoyed running with a beam boat, but I'm not sure which ship I should use for it. I like cruisers for the extra hull, but didn't mind the stronger shields on a science ship either. I've played a LOT of different ships and I can't find something that I really love.

I tried the Chimera and it was a bit too squishy. Used the Excelsior and I don't like the ensign engineer slot. Tried the Galor and honestly just don't like the look. Tried the Fleet Luna but felt like I did less AoE damage but pretty decent single target damage.

I'm ready to try some STF action but want to play something I'll enjoy and that will be successful. Thanks for any advice!
