No Point in Saucer sep, if you do not have enough pew pew. But I must admit, the Nebula on the screen looks lovely !

I'd say in some ways she has more damage potential than the Galaxy, you can have two Lt Tacs instead of one, has the kind of turn rate that you can use DBB or Single Cannons even if you aren't separated, and has Sensor Analysis.

Yes you do lose two weapon slots...which does hurt but you gain so much in return for those two slots.

The Chyenne... no. That thing looks horrible as it is... And the saucer sep is almost as frightening to look at as the Sov saucer sep

Nebula... Sorta cool, but unsure really...

I don't really see the point; The Galaxy has plenty of phaser arrays and torpedo launchers to compensate for losing the saucer section's beefy phaser arrays, but the Heavy Cruiser and Nebula don't. That, and their "engineering sections" (if they're even considered as a secondary hull) don't look good; the Galaxy's engineering section looks halfway decent without the saucer.

Also, the Sovy Separation is basically the Odyssey Separation.

The Cheyenne and Nebula class are little more than a saucer section. That's how they were designed. The Nebula was meant to be a cheap, scaled down version of the Galaxy. Read Memory Alpha. No saucer separation!

Excelsior also wasn't designed to have greater firepower than Galaxy...so your point being ?

This. If you take off the nacelles, all you've really done is gimp the ship. About all saucer separation would be useful for would be a backup to the warp core ejection system. And, really, if things were so bad that that was necessary, you wouldn't have time to evacuate the non-saucer part of the ship, so those in that part of the ship would become "casualties of war".

Porthos is not amused.

This.

I'd still love to see them make another two ships of the Nebula line, and sell all three as a pack; all they'd have to change is the pod on the back, and allow the players to choose the pod visual they want, based on which versions they own.

Sci comes with the radome, as seen in TNG; already comes with the tachyon grid.

Tac comes with the torpedo pod like the one already in the game, and a forward-arc version of torpedo point defense or something like that.

Eng comes with another pair of warp nacelles, like the one model they made but never used (at least, I *think* they never used it). Give it saucer separation.

Combined, the consoles could give some sort of bonus. Also, saucer sep on the tactical version would be cool as hell, and entice people to buy at least two parts of the set, even if they already own the original.


I don't know...just thinking...which kinda explains that burning smell.
