+1 for a fleet Varanus. It's not that ugly and it's a sci ship.
I also want a unique Ferasan ship in the fleet in the fleet store, to get with my ferasan chars. Why not a c-store one? Because if it's like the soverign it willbe overpriced for average c-store ships abilities.
Turn: 21 .
Impulse mod: .2
Tac Consoles: 3
Eng Consoles: 3
Sci Consoles: 4
BOFFs: C Universal, C Universal, E Universal, E Universal
Can Equip DCs/DHCs
Console rationale: The Hoh'Sus covers Tac, Eng is weaker than Tac and Sci, so that leaves Sci, which is pretty nice on BoPs, you can either pick some Sci abilities and boost them or just pack Field Gens.
BOFF rationale: Once again, different niche than Hoh'Sus. Yes, that's one less ability than normal, but given the rank-up it needs be done (it's either that or the pathetic Hull/Shields of the Ning'tao).
That said, a Hull buff for the Hoh'Sus would be nice.
theres a fleet orian tier 4 ship, a fleet nasican tier 4 ship, but theres no fleet tier 4 gorn ship. why? according to gecko they all look the same so they didn't bother.
it would be 1 thing if there was already a fleet varanus, but theres not. not a single sci ship for the kdf at all. just for the sake of consistency there should be a fleet tier 4 gorn ship, maybe with a recon sci station setup.
Reason it was excluded (if you know): In an older podcast, Dan Stahl was asked about KDF fleet ships, and he made a really stupid comment about the varanus:
-It is not sexsy enough apparently (STUPID REASON)
-There is a Gorn Supporter in there already (not considering the FEDs have several Fleet SCI Ships)
I would actually like to see a T5 Lieutenant General Gorn Science ship in the C-store. I like the Varanus and was thinking about buying it, but get the impression that it doesn't stand up well to the newer ships out there.
I guess the best pure Science ship option for the KDF at the moment, would be the Orb Weaver.
