I command the free Oddy and discovered that it's crew was also increased to 2500, which makes sense for a big ship to have more crew than the Galaxy. Buuuut...
In STFs, my crew is INSTA-KILLED the moment I engage the borg. I get spammed with a few assimilate ships and torps and despite brace for impact and polarize hull etc. My crew is literally wiped out (incapacitated) in seconds. It's not that bad since I hardly feel the difference, but on the other hand it takes FOREVER to get my crew up again. In fact, after the STF, it takes longer than 150 seconds (auto-leave) to heal my little crewmen up again. As a consequence, I NEVER fight with more than 60-70% of my crew.
This is a bit ridiculous. Something has to be done here, I mean come on - even the unnamed crewmembers were more useful in the shows
Now imagine being a klingon Vo'Quv carrier with 4000 crew and seeing them all die to 4 torpedo hits to the shields.
The crew deaths are because torpedoes kill crew on a % base. So a ship with 100 crewmembers loses all its crew in 4 torpedo hits to the shields...just like my carrier loses all its 4000 crew to the same 4 torpedo hits.
Thankfully, crew is irrelevant. The insignificant hull regen they give is in no way missed. Its only outside of combat that their hull regen really works. Which is rather silly.
