Would love to see the next c store escort have the oh so useful ensign eng slot instead of the oh so useless ensign tactical.

Fleetscort is a T5. (Remember that T1 is the Light Cruiser, so count up from there).

All it doesn't have that the VA ships have is a toy console or trick (Cloak, Hangar, MVAM etc). It has the same Hull, Turn-rate, crew, weapons layout, console layout and number of BOff abilities as the T5 Akira.

Yeah, T5=Admiral, I was thinking T5=VA/c-store.

You can make perfect use of it assuming you are willing to have multple tac BOs to fill differing set ups and are willing to use more than one weapon of choice. I have like 6 or 8 tac officers. I have no problem putting that ensign tac slot to great use. But I also don't go with the defiant for STFs anymore.

But as far as the new escort goes, surely it's right down your ally. A LT commander eng slot is hot for an escort and better than an extra ensign slot by far. I just got a Jem hadar ship so I'm trying to use it quite a bit before I go diving into the newest escort, but I can't wait to use it so I can laugh on STFs by never dying, short of instant kills. And that ensign tac slot will be loaded with either TT1 or HY1 so it frees my hand to using doffs other than TT. I prefer them to free a TT slot when on most ships, but with 3 tac slots it's unnecessary. If only I could get a hold of some of those conn officer ultra rares....

When I buy the new heavy escort, it will be for it's lt commander eng slot. As far as I care the other stuff is merely perks.

Didn't even notice the lt. commander engineering slot. Still rather have eng or sci than ensign tac,

So you want the next ship to be the Fleet Escort? Why not fly the Fleet Escort since it's already here.

T1 = Miranda = Lieutenant
T2 = Sabre/Connie A/Nova = Lieutenant Commander
T3 = Akira/Cheyenne/Olympic = Commander
T4 = Defiant/Galaxy/Intrepid = Captain
T5 = Too many to list = Rear & Vice Admiral

L40 free ships are still Tier 5, They have the Same Weapon Mounts, BOFFs, Consoles and Hull Strength as the C-Store variants, they just don't have a special console or built in trick.
