I'm not sure if this is the right section or not, so please forgive me if it isn't. I'm also hoping that the Dev's wil read this.
I purchased the Oyssey pack and was surprised to see that all three ships had the sam Boff station levels. shouldn't they be be more oreinted towards the type of ship it is?
My suggestion for changes:
Changes over all is very minimal.
Science odyssey cruiser: change science station to commander levek reduction of engineer station to lt or lt. cmdr.
Operations odyssey cruiser: no changes needed.
Tactical odyssey cruiser change tactical station to commander level. reduction of engineer station to lt. or lt. cmdr.
end of changes.
there you go a small change, one that should not effect game balance any, but reflects the type of odyssey vessel used. allowing any player to play to his/her strengths by choosing the appropriate odyssey cruiser or the odyssey pack so they can experiment which works best for them.
All 6 ships have the same BOff seating. Any discrepancy is purely a typo. They don't have different slotting because frankly there isn't a lot of options left that would make sense for a cruiser and that wouldn't blow balance out of the water.
It's a cruiser, not an escort or science ship (Yes, I know it has Sensor Analysis, you in the back. Thank you, now sit down please).
it maybe a cruiser, but if your going to produce a tactical and science variant, you should allow those traits to be displayed in the way you assign Bridge officer stations. otherwise there is really no point in calling it a "tactical" cruiser or a "science" cruiser
Except each ship got power bonuses and console slots to more closely fit each type. The Tactical variant got extra power to weapons and an extra tactical console, the Science variant got extra power to shields and auxiliary and an extra science console. The special console that comes with each has more of a flavor to match each style.
If they are going to try to confuse us to buy a version for your class then make them match, if your a Tactical you would go for Tactical one that says Tactical, yes i agree with OP, at the moment it is like a bit of a con isnt it.
PS ive ditched mine allready, way too many of them out there lol
