Hello Captains,
I've decided I'm going to try saving up ECs for a lock box ship, rather than try my luck with master keys. This will take some effort, but it's doable. So my question to you all is this:

What lock box ship do you recommend? Which one have you used and which one rocks? I'm leaning more toward a cruiser (for my engineer) or escort (for my Tac), but if I get an overwhelming number recommending a science lock box ship, I'll definately consider it. Thanks in advance for your suggestions!

Joseph

Edit: Oh and if any of the Lobi ships are to die for, tell me about those as well!

I'd recommend the Attack Ship. Best there is and most probably there ever will be.

But my favorite lockbox ship has got to be the Tuffli. She doesn't look like much, but she's got it where it counts, kid.

Personally I agree the attack ship is the best. However the new Jemmy escort looks good, i havent used it yet, also this ship is not lockbox her say, but the Mobius time ship is also a very good ship if your an escort captain.

For a tac, the best you can go with is the Jem Attack Ship. Short of that, the best IMO is the Mobius. The Jem Heavy Escort is actually rather tricky to use, given the lack of science skills if you want the decent tactical ones. The Mobius, on the other hand, has a much more flexible layout.

As for cruiser, I haven't flown either one, but the D'Kora is more of a tank, while the Galor is more of a DPS cruiser.

Galor unlocks arguably the best beams in the game, and is a great tactical cruiser.

Attack ship is not a lockbox ship

Do not confuse the poor guy. It is currently only available via the exchange for an extortionate price.

I'd say the Jem'Hadar Dreadnought is the best damage dealing ship that isn't an escort.

I so want to see a Gekli released in a Lock Box

I would never stop trying to get one of those

Maybe put it in an Undine Lock Box if we every have it.
More anything?

I have all the previous lockbox ships, and my favourite i would class as the one I play the most is the GALOR.

It just feels well balanced, able to heal, put out a good amount of DPS and has good movement.

After that I would say JHAS.

I have bought and sold the new ships to make a few mil, but after reading about the dreadnought I must say I am tempted, I always found the recluse a little too less in the damaging dept.

a dread armed with spirals and JHAS pets mmmmmmmmm*drools* throw in a few good boffs and well it could get real messy.

Wells class gets my vote - primarily because it's the only 'grand prize' lock-box ship I currently own. There again, my primary toon is a Sci, and the Wells plays to the sci crowd control abilites VERY nicely.

GWIII, Temporal Inversion Field, Heavy Temporal Disruption Device + Tric mines can REALLY ruin the enemies day.
