# 1 Chimera and Peghqu' Class
10-14-2012, 03:38 PM
Yeaaaaah.....both these ships are exactly the same in stats except the Chimera has a 0.9 shield modifier while the Peghqu' Class has a 0.833 Shield Mod. So I ask you....WHY THE HECK...does the Peghqu' Class have a Battle Cloak and the Chimera doesnt? Surely you do not believe that a VERY SLIGHT difference in Shield Strength doesnt make one more worthy of the Battle Cloak ability, or any cloaking ability at all....seriously...not cool Cryptic/PWE....

Simply put, there is a REASON why the Bird of Preys were the ONLY ships to have a Enhanced Battle Cloak/Battle Cloak, because they have WEAK hulls and very poor shield modifiers. But the Peghqu Class has 34,500 hull, and a 0.833 shield mod, that is WAY to strong a hull in comparison to the B'rel Bird-of-Prey, for the Peghqu to have a Battle Cloak, simply put, they need to either give the Chimera a Cloak/Battle Cloak ability or give only a simple Cloak to the Peghqu, but not a freaken battle cloak, that just makes the Peghqu way to strong.

Edit: I see absolutely no reason why the Chimera cannot have an innate cloaking ability while the Peghqu has the Battle Cloak, but if anyone wants to argue I can put down the stats of both ships if you really think you have any sort of counter argument to render mine invalid.

Chimer Heavy Destroyer and Peghqu Heavy Destroyer:

1) Hull: 34,500

2) Shield Modifier: 0.9 (Chimera) 0.833 (Peghqu)

3) Crew: 750

4) Weapons: 4 Fore and 3 Aft

5) Device: 3

6) Bridge Officer Stations: 1 Commander Tactical, 1 Lieutenant Engineering, 1 Lieutenant Science, 1 Universal Ensign, 1 Universal Lieutenant Commander

7) Console Modifications: 4 Tactical, 3 Engineering, 2 Science

8) Base Turn Rate: 14 degrees per second

9) Impulse Modifier: 0.22

10) Can equip Cannons

These ships are exactly the same except for the VERY VERY slight difference in their shield modifiers and the fact that the Peghqu has a Battle Cloak. So I honestly have to ask, why is it that the only one of these two ships that has a cloak of any kind is the Peghqu when honestly considering the stats, that the Chimera should have a cloak of some kind to?

I agree, heck KDF characters start at what level 20, so even less grinding to get one to have the ship.

If these were Z-store ships of the same cost, I could see the complaining, perhaps.

These however are Vet rewards and if you have access to one you have access to the other, either as a 1000 day veteran or a LTS.

Think of it as an additional rewards for being a 1000 day vet or LTS and a KDF player.

God... why is this thread here? Get your head out of your rear and think about what is required to get this ship. 300 dollars. PLUS time invested. PLUS it's a KDF ship. A klingon ship that can cloak. What a novel concept. -.-
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.

I see some of you are completely missing what i am saying, The Peghqu doesnt have just a simple cloak, its got a Battle Cloak, now stop dodging my question, why does this ship have a battle cloak instead of a standard cloak? If these two ships are to be the same then they need to have the same abilities otherwise one is just stronger then the other and i happen to know that a battle cloak gives you a huge advantage. Both of these ships ought to have a standard cloak, or at the least the Peghqu's cloak should be a normal cloak.

It's a hybrid cruiser/escort. It is also a LTS ship. As I have said before, you pay 300 dollars for this ship. It's also a 9 console ship instead of 10. Both of those are reason enough to give it a better cloak. PLUS it's supposed to be a top of the line ship. AND it's KDF. NOT STARFLEET. There are only 3 fed ships in canon that had a cloaking device. The U.S.S Defiant, the U.S.S Enterprise (alternate reality/future reality version), and Admiral Janeway's shuttle from "End Game".

Yet virtually every klingon ship you ever encounter post 22nd century has cloaking capability. So of course this one should be able to cloak. That being the case, it should have the best and the baddest stuff out there. And the battle cloak is significantly better than a regular cloak dontcha think? That is also a reason why the FEDERATION ship doesn't have cloak. That being said, have I answered your question yet?

Hi, welcome to the game, The KDF ships(not all of them) run with cloaks.
The Feds do not(with 2 exceptions).

The new kdf ship has a battle cloak you say? Surprise.

I love that they have cloaks, it makes it so much sweeter when I manage to get that high yield quantum torpedo salvo away just when they cloak and drop their shileds.
