Terrible, to the point of being considered trolling. You lack 1-2 weapons and a whole bunch of consoles. And skill slots. And then we get into low HP counts...

Basically: Don't try it.

if you can get a group of like minded players to group up and do it for the challenge - go for it. but unless you like reading curses or spamming your ignore button I wouldnt recommend it in a pug queue

ah ok, i was mostly curious because ive come across a phew tac escorts and Intrepids in STFs and PVP quite often and i was wondering why, like can they just not afford a new ship or are the ships viable

actually that might be tier 4 that i mean. my bad if the post titles wrong

Actually they're probably flying the VA refit of those captain ships. Cloaking Defiant, Saucer Sep Galaxy, and Ablative Intrepid.

Like has been said, they're probably using the Retrofits... and Captain ships are technically Tier 4, not Tier 3.

T1 is En/Lt, T2 is Lt. Cmdr, T3 is Cmdr, T4 is Capt, and T5 is Admiral (the VA ships are approximately equivalent, thought the Bortasqu' and the Odyssey are significantly tougher frames than the other T5 ships). Using T3 ships would be trolling... and the Adv. Heavy Cruiser would probably be the "best" one to do it with, since people wouldn't necessarily spot the difference between it and the T5 version right away.
