# 1 I wish an escort like this...
12-10-2012, 12:43 PM
FORE WEAPONS: 5
REAR WEAPONS: 2

HULL: 36.000+
SHIELD MOD: 1

ENG CONS: 2
SCI CONS: 3
TAC CONS: 4

Commander Tac
Lieutenant Commander Eng
Lieutenant Tac
Lieutenant Sci
Ensign Tac


Bonus:
+15 Weapon Power
Battle Cloak Module

considering the Dreadnought Cruiser, that have the Spinal Phaser Lance, can cloak and can mount cannons and have 40.000 Hull ...

i think they can made an escort like that !!

Lol 5 front weapons...

Personally I just want a standard escort BO layout, say the fleet sabre or fleet patrol escort, with a 3-3-4 console spread. I don't think that is too much to ask for. The KDF get one (even if they are always moaning about its broken turn point).

So you want an escort that has cruiser shields and hull, 5 front weapons, and can disappear at will.

Call me a pessimist, but I see some balance problems here.

Dont forget the LT and Ens Tac slots. We'll need that crfI every 30 seconds to deliver the massive dpsings.

well, let consider the horrible Dreadnougt Cruiser:
40.000 Hull ...
1 Shield Modifie...

4 FORE and 4 AFT Weapons ...
can equip cannons ...
can disappear at will ...
HAVE THE PHASER SPINAL LANCE, that is a powerful weapons ...

call me stupid, but it is like the escort i dream ...
also, the escort i proposed don't have the Spinal Lance or other destructive weapons ...
don't have 800 crew, but only 200 ...
don't have 40.000 hull, but 36.000 ...

i only asked a ship as strong as the Dreadnought, but more beautiful !
let me tell you, the Dreadnought is horrible !!

Okay first of all

The turn rate is absolutely horrendous, so using low arc weapons like is a bad idea for the Dreadnought

It can't disappear at will because it doesn't have a Battle Cloak

The Phaser Lance has such a small arc you have an even harder time lining up that shot than you do lining up DHC's

Your dream Escort is Overpowered, nearly as OP as the Jemmy Bug

Besides, you don't need 5 Forward slots, 4 is more than enough for any end game Escort

Only thing that should get 5 weapons on any side should be a battleship.

Ok. You're stupid. This escort idea is whacked beyond belief. I mean seriously? You want cruiser level shields, cruiser level hull, and the Cruiser LtC Engi... and 5 forward weapons... the turn rate and inertia of an escort... and you still think that's balanced? Or even remotely fair? AND you want a battle-cloak?

Good thing you put that quoted part in. Cuz at least now we know why you think that...

My next question was how long was it between thinking up this idea and posting? Did you take any considerations into how this ship would be played, and how silly this idea actually was/is? This sir, deserves the Picard Maneuver...

*facepalm
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.
