I've just dinged Vice Admiral 1, and got me a MVAE ship, is it the best choice to stick with all the way or is there a better one i'm not aware of.
I've heard some rumblings about the Defiant-R, not sure if i got it or not.

i've got all the standard free ships along the way when i up rank.
Any help would be great.

The Defiant-R is my ship of choice; but it is something you will need to purchase either with emblems or in the cstore if you have already picked up your freebie VA ship

The best advice I can give is to give it a try, and if you don't like it, try another.

I would play a bit with the ship you just got before posing that question, and see if that's right for you. The MVAE is a great ship, learn it's ins and outs for a bit before finalizing your decision.

They're all good. I went with Defiant-R because I love cloaking, but, really, the ships are reasonably balanced so that none are WIN buttons.

My Star Cruiser is running fine thanks to updates and equipment. I am an engineer and haven't had problems with cruisers yet. Tactical Officers I dunno I am still going to run through with it tonight since I dinged Vice Admiral.

Galaxy-X !!! Nothing beats the feeling when you one-shot people with Phaser Lance :p

This until they fix it.

Seriously, you should not be able to one shot people...
When Dalnar hits my 31,5% all resist ship with a 40k phaser lance (first hit only), there is something wrong... (100% hull and shields to boom in a second).

A 40k Bo3 strike does. I bask in the warm rays from their warp cores.

Wrong, BO3 fully buffed on a DBB can be monstrous.

I've "one shotted" (technically one volley) an unprepared Cruiser into dust. On my Defiant R that attack comes from cloak, and a proper cloak too with the attack bonus.

Almost without fail, any ship not already hardened or who doesn't get on his heals quick is toast.
