# 1 The Galor Cruiser
02-20-2012, 04:21 PM
OK

So how good is this galor ship and its weapons?
Are they MK XI purple? Or are you better off getting MK XII purple anit protons?

Should you play it as a TAC or ENG? Is it manuvrable enough like an escort, or should
you play it as a cruiser run an ENG on it?

I currently run both a TAC and ENG. My ENG is the new flagship, while for my tac I run the defiant
retro with cloak and dual heavy cannons.

So for someone like me who is used to cannons on his escort the galor would not be a good fit?

Thoughs? I guess I'm trying to see if the galor is any better then the Excel. I tried the Excel on my TAC
and I just couldnt do it.

I find that the Galor is almost a perfect combination of an escort and cruiser. I started on an escort and absolutely love them... so getting into the Galor wasnt much of a change for me. Just had to modify one of my tac Boff skills around a bit to switch from cannons to beams. All my other Boff's pretty much stayed the same.

I moved my Eng from the Defiant Retrofit to the Galor, and haven't looked back. With the my skill tree buffs and 1 RCS console, I get a turn rate of 20.1 degress per second. With 2 RCS consoles it goes up to 22 degress turn rate. The weapons that come on it are desent also. I actually managed to get two Galors, so I have 7x of the Sprial Disrputors and 1x purple Quantum Torpedo.

I love my Galor, and will not be getting out of it any time so. Also, on a quick note, it looks really bad *** with all the borg parts installed.

You got 2! I ran through over 60 keys. how many of the spiral weapons come on each ship?

You get four spiral beams -- two fore, two aft. The other four slots -- two fore and two aft -- are proton torps mk X, but they are white/common.


I have supplemented mine with disruptor arrays, but it would be cool to do as machocyclone and pop more spiral arrays on there. Certainly more authentic with the yellow beam colors.

I got my Galor today and what can i say...

i L O V E it.

I wish every Cruiser in STO would feel like this. It's fast, but not nearly as fast as a Escort.
It's the first cruiser that can effectively use it's torpdoes in Combat (except to the Excelsior to a certain degree).
Maybe players and devs see that such a ship is not so much OP and that a cruiser that can actually move is much more fun to fly than a slow and sluggish rock like most cruisers are now.

Except it's appearance (well it's a cardie ship...) i just love it.

Man i wish there could be a Federation cruiser that handles (and had the BO and console layout) like this and having the looks of a Avenger Class. (just dreaming )

One courius thing: when on the bridge there is a Tactical Officer where i can change to a Shuttlecraft, but there is no ready room .


Live long and prosper.

The Spiral Wave Disruptors are Level-less Purples, with (i'm not in game atm) Accx2 as a bonus proc. They do what they say they do, they're phasers and disruptors in a nice little package, but they only take bonuses from disruptor modifying devices. the ship itself is fun to fly, it turns almost like an escort, and it tanks like a cruiser, it's a tank's dream, OP'd? a little I think.

I really would hate to get rid of my Odessy for the galor in my ENG. I think I would want to use it on my TAC.

I personally don't care about the weapons, shields, or anything else..I'm hoping for the Galor because it matches my character (A Cardassian). So, I'd love it even with MK 1 weapons.

IMHO, the Galor is way better than the Odessy in every way. I tried the Odessy and hated it.
