It would help if you give us a little bit of info about your budget, PVE/PVP preferences, other ships and play style preferences.

I like the Gal-X but wouldn't want to buy one till Saucer separation was guaranteed for it, that'll make the cannon and cloak boasting cruiser a beast to play with if you have the consul.

The MVAE has one bad vector pet that kind of takes away from the rest of the package but can use fun sci powers. The Armitage's flexibility and Lt.Com Engineer makes it the more practical ship ATM for PVP play.

I'm not super rich but i'm not dirt poor, i sell shield and engine loot drops in the replicator and sometimes when i have more time, in the exchange. Right now i have a sovereign class that i like, but i've been using the advanced escort lately with a full borg set and green lvl weapons. In terms of pvp v pve, i pve more but i'm trying to learn basic pvp.

I know this is out of left field, but...are you in a fleet? It might be good to possibly join one, because a good deal of fleets have plenty of people who can help you in many ways, including good choices for ships, maybe upgrade your equipment, your BOFF build, etc.

Not trying to make this into a recruitment of course.

But, if I had to say, the MVAM is probably better in general. The Gal-X is nice, but the cloak and lance are really what you are buying. If you are doing great in your Sovereign, you probably oughta stick to that or your normal Advanced Escort. The RA ships are still very very good.

Like said above, the Gal-X is basically your Soverign with 2 extra gadgets and a little less turning. If you want a 'better' cruiser, the Gal-X is probably your worst choice unless you have specific plans for those toys.

If you're buying because you want to have an alternate-playstyle ship, then either the MVAM or the Armitage.

Well, since you're already using an Advanced Escort, you'll have an idea as to how the MVAM plays, which is pretty much the same, except you now have a power that gives you two weak pets and a big mobility boost.

If you're looking to get some better pets out of your escort lifestyle, an Escort Carrier is preferable.

I've never used the Gal-X so I can't comment on that.

It's fun but because it has a reputation as a "noob ship" the second you get in a PVP arena everyone is all over your ass. If you know what you're doing that actually allows you to tank in PVP, if you're even a little off your game you'll die horribly. Once the separation console works it'll be one bad ass little ship that will be more popular than ever but until that day it's not really competitive. Until then it's fun and perfect for one shot PVP kills but not exactly worth the cash.

Actually the Galaxy-X is a pretty good ship, so long as you take the time to learn how to use it. Look up the dreadnaught thread and you'll see just how the ship is best used. If you prefer going in and firing everything till you win or go boom, the MVAV is going to be the best for you. But if you want to be able to surgically remove an opponent, human or NPC, from the battle field, and seriously upset someone in the process when it comes to PVP, then go with the Galaxy-X.
